From Oprah / CNN: Why women are leaving men for women

I just stumbled across this interesting article on why, it seems, apparently, that women are leaving men to pursue relationships with women. Personally, I think this isn’t anything new (insert reference to historical celebrity here) but what definitely seems to be changing is the way the media is dealing with celebrities getting imto homolicious relationships. After the first shock, for example, it seemed that the paps were focusing more on Lindsay and Sam’s crazy dramz than they were on TEH GHEY.

Same for Cynthia Nixon, despite some incredibly callous and ugly remarks about her (female) partner, she has largely been able to live her life sans crazy media madness. Heather Matarazzo, Rosie O’Donnell, Portia De Rossi and other celebs have been experiencing similar treatment by the media. They are getting attention-but not solely for being queer. Compare this more low-key approach to the absolute media hysterics over Ellen & Anne back in 1997…if you were cognitive back then, you spring chicken.

Anyway, the CNN and article is a nice little piece of fluff people will read the world over and bring them closer towards the dark side…maybe.

(OPRAH.COM) — Lately, a new kind of sisterly love seems to be in the air. In the past few years, Sex and the City’s Cynthia Nixon left a boyfriend after a decade and a half and started dating a woman (and talked openly about it).

Actress Lindsay Lohan and DJ Samantha Ronson flaunted their relationship from New York to Dubai. Katy Perry’s song “I Kissed a Girl” topped the charts. “The L Word,” “Work Out,” and “Top Chef” are featuring gay women on TV, and there’s even talk of a lesbian reality show in the works.”

  • I also just think it’s funny Cynthia Nixon’s character Miranda tried to be gay in an episode of SATC and didn’t do very well…art/life/mirror/flipped? haha.

    I just watched the Oprah episode about this subject a couple weeks ago and it was fascinating and hilarious. I’m glad she’s been tackling more queer stories and issues but of course I found myself saying “duh” at the TV a lot…
