The resignation of New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo comes as little surprise. After the term Cuomosexualization was pinned on him like a tail on the donkey after news of his alleged sexual advances and passes we are hardly miffed at this latest development.


Governor Andrew Cuomo announced his resignation Tuesday morning after a new report with more allegations surfaced.

The turbulence surrounding allegations of sexual harassment had been mounting. More than 11 women, former staff members and others had accused Andrew Cuomo of harassment and making advances among other allegations.

Governor Cuomo announced his resignation in a televised speech. The governor cited the “need to focus on my family” and stated that he would be leaving office.

Cuomo’s announcement comes as no surprise to many political insiders, who have been speculating for months about when Cuomo would step down from his post. His decision left a momentary whole in the power vacuum in Albany.

It has now been confirmed – Kathy Hochul will become New York’s first female Governor.

The greatest tragedy is the shame of the legacy his father built.

Mario Matthew Cuomo was a lawyer and politician and served as the 52nd Governor of New York for three terms, from 1983 to 1994. He was a staunch Democrat who had also served as Lieutenant Governor of New York from 1979 to 1982 and Secretary of State of New York from 1975 to 1978. His other son also a notable figure who lives in the limelight CNN news anchor Chris Cuomo.

Cuomo was known for his progressively liberal views and speeches. His most famous speech was his keynote address at the 1984 Democratic National Convention.

His legacy as a palpable voice for the Democrats in presidential elections led to him being dubbed “Hamlet on the Hudson.”


So is this is just another public figure who’s ego and power trips ended up taking him down? There is a fine line one walks when he finds himself in a position of power and at this magnitude. You become untouchable in ways. Above the law even. It is my sincere belief that so many in a position of power this grand are not always operating with a sound moral compass. It seems few take the high road and know to be ethical and moral at all times. Most seem to tumble and fall as this latest example shows us.

Others are perhaps engaging in similar foul play, but just aren’t being told on. Or are those who hold their seats just all around good guys and gals? What do you think?

Interesting to note and some may not know this – however Cuomosexualization is not about Andrew Cuomo at all. While it was a nifty play on words and relevant in some strange way at that time it actually has a definitive meaning prior to Andrew’s temporary hi-jacking.

Celebrities even jumped in on – “cuomosexualizing” Andrew.

The likes of Ellen playing coy by dumbing down recent allegations against Andrew Cuomo to sound cool by calling it just another – cuomosexualization. Perhaps she too was amiss of the origins of the word.

Yes. Cuomosexualization is a word and it has been before the sexual harassment charges surfaced and no it has nothing to do with Andrew Cuomo.

Cuomosexualization is the process where an individual becomes attracted to a person’s identity rather than their physical appearance. The word “cuome” comes from the Latin “co-” meaning “together” and “-sexual” meaning sexual attraction. Sexuality has also been redefined in recent years as something more fluid, with people being able to identify as gay, straight, bi-sexual or queer depending on who they are dating at any given time.
Cuomosexuals may find it difficult to maintain relationships because of this fact but they can use online dating sites like OkCupid or Grindr to meet other people interested in cuomosexualism and have successful long term relationships that way.

As far as any long term sexual relationships for Andrew Cuomo – he might have to wait it out and let the hot steam cool a little first.

While harassment seems prevalent among the big wigs here in the states, the U.K. is tackling its own sexual assault problems in its schools and everyone’s invited.
