Facebook Is The New Closet, When It Comes To Coming Out

According to the LGBT community, Facebook is useful for more than just sharing photos and favorite pastimes; it’s also great for coming out. Instead of doing it the old fashioned way—face to face—coming out of the closet now only entails checking a box on your Facebook profile page. Friends can then discover your sexual status at the comfort of their own computer, and you can avoid spending precious time engaging in what could be uncomfortable exchanges.

Gays, lesbians, and bisexuals talked to Time about the new Facebook trend, explaining that it has turned what used to be a tedious process into a convenient and liberating one.

“I just came from a courthouse where they practically want you to undress to be approved for official gender reassignment,” said Herrald, a practicing bisexual. “But on Facebook, I could do it myself and under my own terms. I made that announcement in my own town square.”

Oh Facebook, how we rely on you.

Harvard Endows LGBT Professorship Role

The Ivy League is making waves toward greater acceptance this week. First, Katie Couric was the first woman to give a commencement speech at Princeton. Now, Harvard University has become the first institute of higher education to create an endowed professorship in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender studies. Although other colleges and universities offer courses and degree programs in sexuality studies, Harvard is the first to set up an endowed professorship on the subject. Visiting scholars will teach on sexuality and issues affecting sexual minorities for one semester each.

The Harvard Gay & Lesbian Caucus raised $1.5 million to fund the role, which is named after F.O. Matthiessen, an American studies scholar and literary critic who kept his homosexuality a secret while chairing a Harvard undergraduate program. “It’s not so much that we’ve been able to raise this money, it’s that Harvard and the faculty at Harvard have accepted this perpetual endowment for gay and lesbian studies,” said Mitchell Adams of the Harvard Board of Overseers. Now, if we could only get same sex marriage legalized across the board, we’d be one progressive society. [Reuters] Keep reading »

Gallery: Celeb Parents Who Blab About Their Kids’ Sex Lives

The only thing more disgusting than thinking of the Jonas Brothers having sex? Hearing their mom talk about it.

Denise Jonas, yapped away to July’s Good Housekeeping about the day her little show ponies will be “seduced” and “tempted” and the purity rings will come off:

“They are men. They have desires [and] testosterone. If they make a mistake, I’m not going to hate them. I don’t think they are above or below being seduced. I would be foolish if I thought that. They are tested and tested, like every one of us. I pray for them.”

Ick. Ick. Ick. Not a mental image anyone who isn’t a 14-year-old girl needs.

But sadly, Denise Jonas is just the latest in a long line of parents who divulge TMI when talking about their famous kids having sex.

The Skinny On Being A Plus-Size Bridesmaid

I’m on the borderline of sizes between plus and misses — a 14/16 that can easily fill an 18 after a Snickers bar. So, every time one of my friends takes the plunge, I have to try to squeeze into dresses that look great on all the other, thinner girls. I get to sport that skin sausage look, which, although unflattering, helps me get lucky with the single groomsmen — they look at me and can tell I’d do anything to get out of the tight dress.

For once, I’d like to wear a dress that fits me and doesn’t cause post-traumatic dress disorder. It’s not any of the brides’ faults, they are true friends. Most boutiques and designers only go up to a size 8, 10, or 12 at best. What am I supposed to do, sew two dresses together?! Or, the shops are strictly for big beautiful women and they only go from 14 up. What are those skinny girls supposed to do, cut the dress in half? Keep reading »

Why Will People Keep Buying Chanel and Vuitton In A Recession?

Apparently Topshop, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Forever 21 aren’t doing too badly in the recession, even as their peers are experiencing millions of dollars in losses. A WWD survey of a 100 luxury industry experts came up with those four brands as the most likely to succeed in this economy and, as you can see, there’s quite a disparity in price points. We understand why Topshop and Forever 21 will do well—they’re on trend, fun and dirt cheap—but Chanel and Louis Vuitton need a little further explanation. Why Chanel and LV, not Prada and Dior? What is it about these particular $3,000 bags that makes them relatively recession-proof?
