So Wrong: Minnesota Catholic School Fires Teacher For Being A Lesbian

Kristen Ostendorf lesbian teacher fired

Minnesota teacher Kristen Ostendorf is out of a job right now because she’s a lesbian. After 18 years at Totino-Grace High School, during which she kept her sexuality secret, the 43-year-old teacher came out last month in a workshop with her fellow teachers about how to make one’s mark in Catholic social justice. “I tried to figure out how I could encourage others to ‘make their mark’ if I was willing to be part of a community where I was required to hide and compromise and deny who I am,” she told the Minneapolis Post.

So, Ostendorf told her colleagues: “I’m gay, I’m in a relationship with a woman, and I’m happy.” Keep reading »

lesbian bars

I had to say goodbye to one of the most intrinsic parts of my life this last year. It was something that was there on my darkest days, my most celebrated moments and during nearly every major life event. It was there when I took repeated shots of courage and came out to my dad, the first, second and 10th time I got my heart broken, and when I met what’s-her-name, my first one-night stand. When all else felt bleak, and I wanted to feel surrounded by friends, I would head to my local lesbian bar, T’s in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood, and patronize a place that had become like my second home.

Most recently it served as the place where I held my 30th birthday party, where we closed it down only to discover that it would not be reopening again the next day. Imagine it as Cheers: less a few gentlemen with more armband tattoos and a constant loop of “The Real L Word” reruns playing on huge flat screens and there you have it, the local lesbian bar that can be found in cities across the country. Now, still thinking of a place where everybody knows your name, take away the physical bar and there goes the sense of community, the place to socialize, the place to make mistakes, the place you felt most comfortable being yourself.

20 Fictional Women I Would Never Sleep With

20 Fictional Women I Would Never Sleep With

When I read the Thought Catalog post “20 Fictional Men I Would Never Sleep With,” I thought Chloe Angyal was on to something. So many pop culture icons are glorified as romantic figures, but in real life would be completely undateable. Rhett Butler was a rapist. Romeo was only 13. And Edward Cullen from “Twilight” … well, do I really need to rehash that one?

It got me thinking about 20 fictional ladies that I would never want to sleep with …  Keep reading »

Miley Cyrus: “If You Think I Look Like I’m A Lesbian, I’m Not Offended”

Miley Cyrus: 'If You Think I Look Like I'm A Lesbian, I'm Not Offended'

Short hair, she don’t care.

Say what you want, but Miley Cyrus is brushing off any and all gay rumors after famously chopping off her locks in favor of her now-famous (albeit a little butch)blonde pixie cut.

“Everyone said I was a lesbian [after doing it] but I’m like, ‘Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing. So if you think I look like I’m a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse,’” she says in an interview with Toronto Sun. “I’ve been called much worse. Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me.” Read more on Celebuzz…
