“You’re either gay, straight, or lying.”
I first heard that oft-repeated phrase when I was an 18-year-old freshman at UC Berkeley. I was at my first meeting of the GLBA (Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Alliance). I’d recently broken up with a girlfriend, and had been dating (and sleeping with) both men and women; I was ready to “come out” as bi and to get involved in campus activism. But as I quickly found out, though there were equal numbers of gay men and lesbians in the group, the only bisexuals were women.

It’s hard to find an iPod dock that does everything you want it to do and provides quality sound.

“[My parents are] still together and still in love. I’m very blessed that way. I had a great example of love in front of me, and that’s probably what makes me such a romantic, because I’ve seen it firsthand … You grow up and you assume that everyone is like that, and you quickly realize that they’re not, and then you have those days when you wonder if you’re going to find it for yourself. It’s such a hard thing to find. I think it was more that realization that rocked me.”
—Rachel McAdams talks love and marriage in the latest issue of Elle. I can relate to Rachel’s sentiment. My parents and grandparents are all still married and in love. It seems like no one does that anymore or even believes in it. I know I am doubtful at times and that makes me sad. But what is even sadder is the realization that not many other people are even striving for that. I often feel like I have to lower my expectations just to give love a shot. Damn you, happily married parents! [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
