  • Lesbian Kiss Gets A Finger Wag In Seattle

    A lesbian couple taking in a Seattle Mariners game were told by an usher that they would have to stop their PDA if they wanted to watch the remaining innings — a woman nearby had complained that there were children nearby, as if two people smooching is akin to an X-rated movie. You know what’s lame about this? Last time I was at a Yankee game, I saw a couple exploring each other’s tonsils for, like, 30 minutes and no one said a thing. And I didn’t care either for the record, I love to watch people and laugh. According to Sirbrina Guerrero, one of the women in question, “There was a couple like seven rows ahead making out. We were just showing affection.” The usher said that parents shouldn’t have to explain to their kids why two women were kissing. I disagree. They absolutely should. They should say, “Yes, those two people are kissing. Probably because they like each other or even love each other. Isn’t that nice? Now stop staring and pay attention to the game. These tickets cost me $50.” Well that’s what I would say anyway. [CNN.com] Keep reading »

    Cease Fire For Homosexuals In The Military

    Don’t ask, don’t tell, don’t think so! This week, the infamous military policy that allowed homosexuals to be discriminated against in the workplace didn’t stand up in court thanks to Maj. Margaret Witt. The decorated Air Force nurse, who had cared for combat victims for 18 years, was discharged in 2007 because higher-ups heard that she’s gay. Brave and clever, Maj. Witt decided to fight back and sue for her right to serve, and with the help of the ACLU, she won! Her case has now set a precedent wherein the government cannot fire at will when it comes to the sexual orientation of its employees. Like any other job, the military bosses will have to prove there is a real reason for canning any of their personnel. Hooray! We’re hoping this decision will also help The L Word’s sexy servicewoman Tasha keep her military post. We pity the fools who try to mess with any woman, let alone one who is a trained fighter.

    Isle Of Lesbos v. Lesbians

    Three residents of the Isle of Lesbos (no that’s not a euphemism, they really live there) are suing the Greek Gay and Lesbian Union, Olke, over the use of the word “Lesbian.” Although the plaintiffs claim they’re cool with the lifestyle, they want to stop the confusion and reclaim the name solely for people from the region. They’re loud, they’re proud, and they’re used to calling themselves Lesbians. But the term actually comes from one of the most famous Lesbians, in both meanings of the word, Sappho, a writer in Ancient Greece who wrote love poems to other women. Despite the ridiculousness of the charges of “psychological and moral rape” of their label, the case, supported by a member of a local pagan group and two other inhabitants, will be heard in a court in Athens sometime in June.

    Ladies Love Hot Lesbians

    In the past I have said that if I was going to hook up with a woman, she would need to be busty and very womanly because, otherwise, what would be the point? But over the years, the true girl crushes I’ve had (not the “oh my god, isn’t she cool”-girl crushes we write about on The Frisky) have been a lot more masculine than I thought they would be. Like Ellen DeGeneres, who I find very attractive. And the chick who briefly hosted “Queer Eye For The Straight Girl” — I think her name was Honey Labrador or something. Anyway, apparently, I am not alone. The New York Times had an interested article this weekend about how women — from city gals to suburban moms — are totally obsessed with the host of Bravo’s Work Out, Jackie Warner, who’s gay. This makes me happy, mostly because the most mainstream acceptance of lesbianism has been when it’s pornified in Girls Gone Wild videos or at your local bar, where girls make out with each other for the viewing pleasure of men.

    The Nookie Know-It-All: Freaking Fabio

    “My boyfriend put on a long blonde wig for Halloween and it really turned me on. Am I a lesbian, or do I just like Fabio-look-alikes?” — Bodice Ripping, San Francisco, CA

    Funny you should ask. I’m lying in bed with my laptop (I’ve got “the cramps”) and I was just watching my boyfriend jokingly show off his legs to me. He’s honestly got the best legs I’ve ever seen (for a guy OR a girl), and now I want to dress him up like a girl and do him. Am I a lesbian?? The thought of going down on a girl does nothing for me, so I’ll take a wild guess and say no. I’ll go ahead and say the same for you. Women are just hot, and I think when we catch glimpses of “womanly” things we tend to get aroused by them. I think it also has to do with a certain “control factor.” It’s human nature to view women as submissive creatures. So when you see your boyfriend in a more volatile role (dressed as a woman), I think it’s normal to want to dominate and get turned on by the thought of it.

    And no…it’s not a Fabio thing either. Unless you’re obese and have socialization issues. In which case, I’m sorry.
