Evan Rachel Wood Says Miley Cyrus Has Lesbian Hair

In-Side Boob

Because of course she did. This is what Evan Rachel Wood does—alienate people and perpetuate stereotypes (no, I don’t know if that’s what she really does as in she makes a habit of it, but that’s what she did this time, and it was pretty fucking rude if you ask me). This is what ERW had to say on Twitter about Miley’s recent hair-chopping endeavor:

“I called it! Miley Cyrus is leaning toward gay.”

 

Of course, people predictably freaked out and said all sorts of things about Evan Rachel Wood and about the pot calling the kettle a lesbian or whatever else, and naturally, Evan went back to the Twitterverse and claimed that—of course, duh—people took her all wrong and that she was just kidding about the whole thing.

What do you do if you’re an advice columnist who gets a letter from a young woman with questions about her crush on the twins sisters who make up the band Tegan & Sara? If you’re Dan Savage, you go right to the source and ask Tegan to answer the question for you. A woman wrote to the sex advice columnist saying:

I’ve been confused about my sexuality for two years. I am a 22-year-old female. I liked guys when I was in school, but then, in perhaps the most stereotypical of fashions, I developed a HUGE crush on Tegan and Sara when I was nearly 20…

Does that make me gay, she wondered?

Mississippi Museum Stops Being Douchebags, Allows Lesbian Couple To Hold Commitment Ceremony

  • A public Mississippi museum that refused to allow two lesbians to hold a commitment ceremony on its grounds has relented. The Mississippi Agriculture and Forest Museum in Jackson had a policy of discriminating against same sex copules, but since it is a public museum and there is no state law against it, the women will be allowed to rent the venue. Good for them! [Seattle Times]

Hitched: Let Them Eat Gay Cake!

On Bigotry
Andrea Grimes on love, politics and bigotry. Read More »

Last week, an interracial couple showed up for their wedding cake tasting at a small, family owned bakery in Colorado. But when the shop owner caught sight of the together-for-two-years pair, he turned them away because he doesn’t believe interracial couples should get married.

In a statement to the local television station, Jack Phillips, the owner of the Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood, Colorado, said he and his family believe so strongly that blacks and whites should not marry that “we would close down the bakery before we would compromise our beliefs.”

Phillips has been overwhelmed by community support for his stance. After the interracial couple complained to media of the bakery’s refusal, Phillips says he had “about twice as much business as normal,” with Coloradans coming out in droves to buy sweets from a man who believes marriage should be reserved only for people who are the same race as their partners.

Weird, right, that in 2012, people would be so proud to support such a clearly racist business? Well, I’ve fudged some details: the couple that wanted to buy a cake from the Masterpiece Cake Shop isn’t interracial. They’re gay. Keep reading »

Study Looks At Doctors Using Steroid To “Prevent” Lesbianism

  • What in the what now? American doctors have been using a non-FDA-approved steroid called dexamethasone to try to “prevent” lesbianism, bisexuality and intersexuality (i.e. both male and female genitalia) in fetuses. Pregnant women are given the steroid if their fetus is seen to be at risk for something called “congenital adrenal hyperplasia,” which results in the development of “masculine” traits in female fetuses. Perhaps intersexuality is something that could be biologically prevented — although whether it is ethical to do so is a whole can of worms I’m not going to get into here — but what’s this about preventing people’s sexual orientations?  You can read more about the dexamethasone study published last month in the Journal of Bioethical Inquiry here.

Kreayshawn On Why She Refuses To Label Her Sexuality

On Coming Out
Hiding it was like a "boulder" on his chest, Frank Ocean says. Read More »

“Personally, for me, I like people I have a connection with. I’m not the type of girl who will date someone that I don’t really like just so I’m not lonely. So the people I always end up being with are people I have a big-ass connection with, and that could be with a boy, that could be with a girl. It could be with someone who’s 40-years-old, it could be with someone who’s 18, you know what I’m saying? I don’t want to put those boundaries on myself because that’ll limit the kind of people that I attract. I don’t go searching for girls and guys, I just take whatever comes my way and that’s just genuine.”

– Rapper Kreayshawn spoke with Salon.com about Frank Ocean’s coming-out and her own sexuality, namely how she herself doesn’t label it. This bit reminded me of an article I read yesterday in New York magazine. They interviewed a bunch of bisexuals — rather, more accurately, people who have been attracted to both men and women throughout their lives — and I was surprised at how many of them used the label “gay” or “straight” or no label at all instead of saying “bi.” For myself I prefer to just say “straight-ish” … or “slut.” [Salon.com]

Daniel Tosh Rape Joke

Daniel Tosh joked about a woman in audience getting raped by five men. Read More »

Two weeks have passed since Daniel Tosh joked that it would be funny if five guys raped a woman in his audience and the shit hit the fan. But did no one learn anything about how to handle a heckler?

Seemingly not. Comic Eddie Griffin is going to may be sued — and he took a thrown drink to the face! — for taunting a female audience member about being a lesbian.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, Fiona Walsh, 39, of San Jose, went with her partner Leslie Champlin to go see Griffin perform at Tommy T’s Comedy Club. During the show, they sat in front of the stage. As the set wore on, Walsh thought the comedian was drunk and not very funny. Onstage, Griffin noticed Walsh wasn’t laughing and (drunkenly perhaps) told her she looked “rigid” and like a “librarian.” At some point during all this, he noticed Champlin’s hand on Walsh’s shoulder and started yelling at the couple about their sexuality; he offered to have sex with them, saying he would “show them a good time,” and pumped his hips in Walsh’s face from the stage. She then threw a drink at him and he threw water bottles right back. The couple was “escorted out” of the club while other audience members hollered.

Again we have a case of a comedian 1) acting like a major dick to his audience and 2) not being funny while doing so. But this situation is different than the recent one with Daniel Tosh. Keep reading »
