Good morning! Happy birthday to my boo, Rachel Maddow. I’ll be taking one of these for her because I cannot be with her.
Congratulations to Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry! The couple got married in California over the weekend and are on their honeymoon this week. I hope they went to Lanford, Illinois!
Don’t you have when your friend tries to copy you? Like, you were totally a lesbian first.
What your parents feared is true: TV is making us all gayer.
Russia’s League of Safe Internet is not happy about all that lesbian sex in Blue is the Warmest Color. That’s fine, I guess… but I mean, 10 years later, am I right? Late to the party, LSI.
Things that inspire inappropriate comments from strangers: A black mom married a white mom, and they have a baby.
If you have always wanted to meet Billie Jean King, now’s your chance. If you just right now thought, “Sure, I’d meet Billie Jean King,” it is also your chance.
Jenna Lyons shared her Girls script on J Crew’s Tumblr.
Alanna Masterson will be a regular on next season of The Walking Dead. Yay for lesbians in the zombie apocalypse (finally)! Well, one at least.
Stasia of musical duo THEESatisfaction spoke to REVOLT (Puff Daddy‘s music channel) about homophobia in hip-hop and had this to say about fellow Seattle-based rapper Macklemore‘s “Same Love.”
“Same Love” was a very strategic move by some of Seattle’s elite influencers at pushing the marriage equality act in Washington State. The most popular rapper in Washington was selected to create a song that pandered to a certain audience. The song did the job that it was supposed to do.
Stasia’s musical and life partner Cat echoed the sentiment.
That piece of sound work was an instrument for a political purpose. Doesn’t make me feel any more safe or comfortable as a queer woman of color. The fact that it was advertised by a straight, white man speaks volumes.
Childbirth is a self-described feminist supergroup from Seattle and, wow, I love this song, “How Do Girls Even Do It?”
Alyson Hannigan kissed Cobie Smulders when the cast of How I Met Your Mother went on Inside the Actor’s Studio. It was inspired by James Lipton asking Alyson if she found Robin (Cobie’s character) attractive.
I guess that’s a yes!
