AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL:
There’s a lesbian Hooters waitress on America’s Next Top Model‘s new season! She lives with her girlfriend but hopefully they have an open relationship so she can convert some of her housemates just for funsies:
In a post that took the photos of Natalie Portman‘s kissing Mila Kunis in Black Swan out of context and posted them all over the internet, Showbiz Spy quoted Natalie Portman as saying:
“Nudity is something absolutely natural and I’m not prudish — but in a film it can be distracting,” she said. “Doing Black Swan I couldn’t say no. The project is a huge opportunity for me to show a new me. I can’t always play the nice mothers. My other problem is that single pictures are being taken out of context and put on the internet.”
SLASHFIC FANS OF THE WORLD UNITE
Your Marxist-feminist prayers have been answered, worker bees – somebody has finally thought to fill the gaping void in Marx-Engels historical homo slashfic. Now if somebody would please write about a steamy afternoon tea between Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville West, our dreams would be realized.
JOHNNY WEIR IS AWESOME
“I don’t need anyone for anything. I can have sex with myself, I can love myself, I can do all those things myself.”
“I would marry a woman. I very well could. People laugh at me, but why is that so funny? I love women. My whole stance is that I just want people to react to who I am, I don’t want people to react to what I am.”
“I’m not saying I’m gay, bisexual, multisexual, transsexual. I’m just me. And tomorrow if I want to marry a man, I’ll marry a man.
If I want to marry a woman, I’ll marry a woman. It’s not categorizing.
It’s not a box.”
“The importance that people place on me not having
[a sexual partner is] irrelevant to me. It’s very old school.
When you put people in boxes you take away a lot of who that person is. How many gay men do we know who [seem straight] but they get classified in the same box as somebody who’s a drag queen?
It’s void. It’s not real.
I filled out my census form and I wrote down that I was a Pacific Islander because yes, I’m white, but why is that important? Why is anything important?”
Basically, as a public figure his approach to his sexuality is refreshing, and sometimes he talks the crazy, and we love him for all of it.
THE CLASS THAT MUST NOT BE NAMED
As further proof that magic is real, Durham University in England is offering the UK’s first-ever course on Harry Potter as part of a BA in Education Studies. Harry Potter and the Age of Illusion will explore “the world of rituals, prejudice and intolerance in the classroom, bullying, friendship and solidarity and the ideals of good citizenship.” Maybe some slashfic writers will take that class and they’ll talk about this.
Did you know that Ann Coulter is headlining a gay Conservative conference called Homocon 2010? We’re shocked you don’t have your tickets already. As a result of her decision to fraternize with fellow self-loathers, Coulter’s own employer, WorldNetDaily, has dropped her from its upcoming conference because by then she’ll probably have AIDS.
SOMETIMES GIRLS KISS BOYS TOO
Celebrity gossip blog TheFABlife doesn’t know how to feel about the invasiveness of recently-published paparazzi photos of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart making out at a Montreal house party, and raises some interesting questions about when we feel like it’s okay to look. More to the point, that same weekend it was Pride in Montreal – coincidence???
