Girl Crushes and Fashion's Discomfort With Authentic Lesbian Sexuality

Fashion magazines are filled with pictures of extremely hot women. That is literally their business model. And yet — even though they're ostensibly marketed to women, by women — the idea that those pictures might be sexually appealing to women is something our culture is surprisingly resistant to. » 3/11/14 4:30pm 3/11/14 4:30pm

Shakira and Rihanna Need to Stop With the Faux-Lesbian Posturing

Honestly, nothing would make me happier than Rihanna and Shakira having a hot and heavy lesbian relationship. In fact, I’d also be pretty happy about Rihanna and Shakira convincingly playing same-sex fuckbuddies in a music video. And yet, their new video together, “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” has me remembering why… » 2/03/14 7:00pm 2/03/14 7:00pm

There Are Some Wack Stereotypes About Lesbians Floating Around

Man, watching this new short for Girl on Girl's Indiegogo Campaign brought me down. Even if this isn't what people are saying they personally believe, it's sad that this is how we think of lesbians culturally. The video was made to promote awareness of Girl on Girl, a film following the lives of lesbians who, even… » 11/25/13 10:00am 11/25/13 10:00am

Pastor's Epic Rant: Girl Scout Cookies Turn The Children Into Lesbians

In addition to promoting team building, life skill acquiring, and adorable little girls in adorable matching uniforms photo ops, the Girl Scouts of America have long had a much more insidious agenda: promoting lesbianism. At least, if you ask a right-wing pastor who went on an epic, hilariously whackadoodle rant… » 10/22/13 12:40pm 10/22/13 12:40pm

Fat Substance Abuser Rush Limbaugh Calls Lesbians Fat Substance Abusers

Third Rate Sad Wang Rush Limbaugh took it to the next bullshit level when he spoke some truly insane nonsense about lesbians and alcohol and fatness and yeah. Actually, it sounds like he's explaining a personal fantasy of his, but nope — it's just some good old-fashioned hate-mongering from King Bigot. » 3/27/13 10:00am 3/27/13 10:00am

Homophobes Offended by 'Lesbian' Images of Women Kissing Themselves

London department store Harvey Nichols got into a bit of hot water with homophobes for their 2012 "love thyself" beauty campaign. The ads show women who are about to make out with their own reflections. The idea being, "you'll love your new look so much, you'll go to town on yourself!" It's cute and harmless; I dig… » 3/08/13 1:20pm 3/08/13 1:20pm
