Stephen Gobie

“I don’t know many straight guys who spend that much time in the gym and pose with their shirts off all the time.”

Asked if he was making a joke about stereotyping gay men, [St. Barney] Frank admitted he was [re: well-professed heterosexual Aaron Schock], saying its “a perfectly valid thing to joke about.”

“Jokes are often about stereotypes,” he agreed. “It perpetuates it in some ways, but at the same time diminishes it.”

Just joking.

  1. “Prostitute and pimp Stephen L. Gobie settled in with his “girls” in his Georgetown town house one evening in late 1987 to watch “The Mayflower Madam” on television. As Candice Bergen portrayed upscale madam Sydney Biddle Barrows, Gobie’s companions had an idea.

    “The girls turned to me and said, ‘You’re just like her,’ ” Gobie recalled in an interview yesterday. “That’s when I realized that I was in the middle of a developing story that could be worth something someday. I told them, ‘One day, don’t be surprised if you see me on TV.’ ”

    He’d be perfect for a reality TV show. Or – TV movie.

    Well, except for this:

    “Gobie, then 28, was one of many young men “freelancing” in male prostitution. Gobie said he was born in Boston and grew up in a military family. He has felony convictions for possession of cocaine, oral sodomy and production of obscene items involving a juvenile. ”

    That only gets qualifies for a Lammy – not an Emmy.

    Wonder where he is these days. Changed his name? Died?

    • Perhaps Victoria Brownworth would know?

      • There’s a first time for everything,
