Last week on Last Tango in Halifax, we witnessed Gillian losing her shit, Kate and Caroline discussing the worst baby plans, and Gillian’s son Raff having a very sudden child with his teenage girlfriend
Dear straight women, it’s time to stand up for your gay sisters’ rights
Note: Jenn Fitzpatrick is the little sister of AfterEllen senior editor Heather Hogan.
When Liz Cheney announced on Fox News in November that she supports the traditional definition of marriage (despite the fact that her sister Mary Cheney is very publicly gay and married), I don’t think any of us were surprised. After all, Liz is getting properly trounced in her Senate run by incumbent Mike Enzi in the conservative bastion of Wyoming, and we all know that when it comes to Republican primaries, the only direction to run is farther right. Ms. Cheney has been pressed on this issue before; after all, having a lesbian sister is something of a quandary if you want to be in office and also keep being a Republican. Also unsurprising is the fact that former vice-president Dick Cheney came out in support of his straight daughter’s position (against his gay daughter’s civil rights) yesterday afternoon.
My girlfriend and I have been together for six months. When we went out last weekend, I was talking to one girl I know and my girlfriend was inside socializing with a bunch of people. After a while I went to find her and couldn’t. When I finally tracked her down she was at the bar talking to a cougar. Next thing I know, I look back over and they are kissing.
We had a huge blow up that night about it. I’m hurt and upset about it. She says I shouldn’t be worried about it because it was “nothing” and not her fault the woman kissed her. Of course, our fight was a drunken one and she said some hurtful things about us not having sex enough and me talking to the same girl all night. We’ve talked since the fight but we haven’t talked about it. Is there a good way to address this or let her know that even though it “meant nothing” to her, it hurt me? Or am I being overly sensitive and should just try to let it go?
Meet the lesbian exes of “The Real World: Ex-Plosion”
When The Real World returns to San Francisco this January, there’s an added twist: The housemates will be paired up with an ex. So instead of seven strangers, living in a house, it’s 14 all-too-familiar faces. The resident lesbian couple is Arielle and Ashley, and we have some intel!
“Isabel’s character wasn’t going to be a lesbian,” Torrebejano reveals. “They hadn’t talked about it or anything. It happened because of things I added to the scenes. That’s when I talked to the writers and told them, ‘Why don’t you make this girl a lesbian? Because, it could be very beautiful. You could tell it very well. And a lesbian in the 19th century can be very interesting.’
