Cristiano Ronaldo has never been shy about showing off his scorching hot bod. A simple Google image search yields pages and pages (and pages and pages!) of shirtless photos of the 29-year-old Portuguese soccer star both on and off the field. He’s also been snapped in his swim trunks on a number of occasions. But he’s always been careful about keeping his man bits covered… Until now.
“This is kind of scandalous,” Jimmy Kimmel announced on his show last night. “We have obtained the first-ever nude photograph of Ronaldo with his shorts off.”
The audience, naturally, went wild.
Then came the photo the world’s been waiting for since Ronaldo first made his international debut in 2003.
Check out the clip below.

Lionsgate Films has just dropped the latest in a series of clever Hunger Games propaganda ads courtesy of the Capitol. President Snow (Donald Sutherland) has come with a message imploring its citizens to remember that the Capitol is the “beating heart” of Panem, concerned only with their protection.r
Snow is joined by a stone-faced Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) as he reminds Panem that their safety is contingent on the Capitol’s benevolence. The ad comes on the heels of Hunger Games producer Nina Jacobson’s Instagram photo confirming the wrapping of the film’s final day of shooting. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is to be released on November 21, 2014.r

23-year-old Walter Adrian and his boyfriend, who asked not to be named, were attacked by a group of up to seven youths outside a bank in Whitechapel in London's east end. As the couple withdrew cash, the teenagers surrounded them and hurled homophobic insults.r
Mr. Adrian described the youths as 15 to 18-year-old Bangladeshis wearing dark sports clothing, one of whom was wearing an oversized yellow t-shirt.r
Adrian was left unconscious and bruised after the attack while his partner suffered bruising to the jaw.r
Speaking to the London Evening Standard, Mr Adrian said:r
“We weren’t even holding hands or kissing or anything, but all the comments were based on us being gay. They were saying, ‘this is our street, this is our area, get out of here’, just because they thought we were gay. It happens a lot ‘round this area and East London. We weren’t even acting gay and that’s what’s upsetting. Whether anyone is gay or not you just can’t feel safe.”r
Mr Adrian’s partner said: “I feel like I have to ‘gay-down’ a bit. We are just scared and afraid it might happen again and it just shouldn’t be like that. I think it’s a clash as people are starting to move into multicultural areas.”r
Two 16-year-olds were arrested on the same day and taken to an east London police station.r
Both teenagers have been bailed to return to on July 4 pending further enquiries.
In a statement to the press on Friday, Gambia’s Secretary General and Minister for Presidential Affairs Momodou Sabally announced legislation to further toughen anti-LGBT laws in the West African nation by banning all LGBT rights advocacy.r
Homosexual acts are already illegal in Gambia and can be punished with up to 14 years in prison.r
Sabally said the government plans to strengthen its efforts to ward off any attempt to promote homosexuality, drug abuse and other crimes in The Gambia and that his country "will not import any western culture into the country in exchange for foreign aid" - likely in reference to the U.S. recently imposing a series of sanctions on Uganda over the country's own anti-gay laws.r
Eastern Mennonite University' in Harrisonburg, Virginia announced Saturday that it would defer its decision on hiring gay faculty while the Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) community continued its “discernment of human sexuality,” InsideHigherEd.com reports:r
A formal reversal would have reportedly been a first for any member institution for the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, although other Mennonite colleges are having similar conversations about allowing the hiring of openly gay faculty members...r
Discussions on Mennonite campuses reflect ongoing debate within the Mennonite Church itself. Because the denomination has a strong focus on social justice issues, many members view its non-recognition of same-sex marriage as incompatible with its identity as a whole. Others still believe strongly and exclusively in the biblical definition of marriage: a union between a man and woman.r
Currently, faculty at EMU can be gay but have to be celibate and accept certain tenants upheld by EMU to obtain and keep employment:r
During the interview process, candidates have to disclose any objections they have to the Mennonite Church’s Confessions of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective, which defines marriage as a covenant for life between a man and a woman. Upon hire, faculty members also have to sign the university’s Community Lifestyle Commitment condemning premarital sex (same-sex marriages are not recognized by the state of Virginia).r
Back in the fall, the university’s ban was temporarily lifted as EMU created a ‘listening period’ to engage with its students, faculty and ‘vested’ members—parents, alumni and donors—to help guide its decision. EMU President Loren Swartzendruber said it was a rift in opinions between the students/faculty, who supported lifting the ban, and the vested members, who opposed it, that led to the deferment of any action on the subject.
Cards Against Humanity creator Max Temkin has apologized for a transphobic card previously included in earlier editions of the popular game. Cards, a game Temkin and his co-creators designed while in college, makes a point of being as politically incorrect as possible, often taking potshots at racial minorities, disabled individuals, and notable public figures.r
"We were writing jokes for ourselves and we weren't really thinking about how it would affect other people," Temkin told Fusion in an interview. "But when you have something that starts to be part of pop culture, you can't help but see how it makes people feel and feel some sense of responsibility for that."r
“Somebody played that card, and somebody else was like, ‘That’s not OK.’ I decided I didn’t want it in my deck,” He said.r
Tumblr, known for the ways in which content spreads through it virally and its active queer communities, has since seen the initial photoset reblogged well over 50,000 times. horriblewarning, whose first name is Jonah, has since expressed deeper thought over the photos, admitting that his initial reaction was an implicit endorsement of Cards Against Humanity’s other examples of comedic bigotry:r
I was only looking at the issues which affected me personally, and I was allowing myself to find everything else funny because I wasn’t the person to whom it’s directed. I truly regret making this post, not because I’ve gotten a bit of shit for it but because I am appalled at myself that I didn’t see what I was doing.r
