“The artist formerly known as ‘J. Lo’ recently announced her show idea, The Fosters, has been picked up by a major network. Aside from the randomness that is J. Lo Producing Television Shows, The Fosters is particularly interesting as it centres around a diverse family with two lesbiarchs [aka matriarchs who get down with each other].
The show will be the third in the last few years alone to follow the trials and tribulations of queer-headed families — the others being Modern Family and The New Normal — which must mean we’re finally diving into a post-Ellen world where Coming Out is So In.
So what other gay-themed shows should hit the small screen?”
Top news anchor and bonafide Sexy Nerd Anderson Cooper broke the hearts of millions of women by saying, “The fact is, I’m gay,” going on to say, “[he] couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with [himself], and proud.”
Now, this is a big deal; kids are coming out younger and younger, and one certifiable way to pave a more peaceful road for them is for high-profile and well respected celebrities to take the first step.
Should coming out be a big deal? Maybe I’m bias, but it’s weird that all we homos of the world have to make official statements about our nighttime (or daytime!) recreational activities of choice. We’ve never had to take a few minutes out of our busy schedules to read about how Tom Hanks only digs the ladies… so why the double standard?
In a perfect world, this is the kind of thing nobody would really care much about unless they’re trying to hit on you in a bar, so the question I pose to you today is “What if we lived in that perfect world, and people like Cooper made an official statement about every personal aspect of their lives?”
In a world where evildoers like Rush Limbaugh are determined to quash the existence of stronge female protagonists… Hermione and Katniss [and…Bella?] team up to fight back!
1.) The Butch Girl
Even though Glee has no qualms about showing guys of varying degrees of machoness, and even non-machoness, apparently the girls aren’t afforded the same right to bend the rules. So how about a girl who rocks a short, spikey ‘do, baggy pants, and sexually ambiguous anthems? I know, Ryan Murphy: I, too, thought being lesbian was enough to qualify as a tomboy/butch; however, if you take a look at the ladies of AfterEllen.com and The L Word, you’ll find there’s a whole world of untapped womanhood out there. Moreover, why not have A Scarlet Woman interfere with Brittana Lovin’, just to spice things up?
“Why Lesbians Love Cats,” by Vickie Toro
Everybody knows lesbians love two things: cats and “cats.” But how are the two loves linked?
