Supermodel Yasmeen Ghauri
The Writers at AfterEllen should respect the memory of America’s FIRST Supermodel: Gia Marie Carangi as the soft-butch LESBIAN that she was. If you knew Gia, or even saw her…you fell in love with her. We All Fell In Love with Gia.
Inspired by the tech-centric gimmicks found in J-horror films like The Ring and One Missed Call and presented as a deliberate yet adequately compelling character study, The Monitor is neither a horror flick the actress should be embarrassed about nor a hidden treasure that fans will soon discover and champion.
Most Americans wish to express our concern over Mitt Romney's recent comments, and to let you know that he does not represent how most Americans view your great country.
First, we do not believe, as Mitt Romney implied in 2007, that you have become a second-tier nation.
Rather, we are impressed at how the United Kingdom has consistently been able to punch above its weight on the world stage.
Additionally, we do not share the opinion which Romney expressed in his 2010 book, No Apologies, that "England [sic] is just a small island," and that "with few exceptions, it doesn't make things that people in the rest of the world want to buy." Please continue sending us your many wonderful products, especially the upcoming third season of Downton Abbey.
We look forward not only to the London Olympics, but also to many years of continuing the special relationship between our two nations. Rest assured we will do our level best to prevent Mitt Romney from becoming our next president.
I’ve come to this decision because Dunye has endeavored and successfully completed a movie in my 2nd favorite genre a lesbian: Comedy of errors.
Directed by Cheryl Dunye. With Lil Harlow, Papi Coxx, Maggie Tapert, Wieland Speck,
Mommy is Coming is a romantic comedy of errors about SEX, a romp into lesbian porn, and an ode to the lust and leather of Berlin. The raunchy and very real sex in Mommy Is Coming could minimize the festival exposure that Dunye’s earlier films - Watermelon Woman (1996), The Owls (2010) - have enjoyed. Yet porn pays handsomely on VOD, and the film will test whether the reach of such a product can be broadened by a Berlinale imprimatur.
The comic banter of Mommy Is Coming is light, fun, even wholesome in its kinky team spirit.
Liberty Ross is the wife of director Rupert Sanders [Snow White and the Huntsman]. Just like a typical male…Sanders probably figured that since he married a babe that he was irresistible. Funny how he didn’t try these Shenanigans with Charlize Theron. See Sanders KNEW that he was out of Theron’s league, so he goes for the next best thing? Well that would have been his wife [A Grown Woman] and not some clueless 22 year old.
Yeah the gun imagery is a bit much, considering….
Sally Ride, a theoretical astrophysicist, American hero and feminist icon, was a Lesbian.
Ride’s partner for 27 years: Tam O’Shaughnessy, a professor emerita of school psychology at San Diego State University. According to some news reports, Ride didn’t keep her relationship secret. Perhaps not, but the world certainly didn’t know about it. Most of us learned that tidbit of Ride trivia when her obituary was written.
Lesbians Blaze Trails as FIRSTS!
America’s FIRST Supermodel was also a LESBIAN!: Gia Carangi and you just knew that I would find a way to mention Gia.
Sadly Gia Marie Carangi is also the first Famous American woman to have died from AIDS.
Well nothing with the exception of my being “Duped” Tuesday evening. I was on Twitter and had noticed several “re-Tweets” in my stream about Jane Rizzoli doing something incredibly gay and “That’s what happens with you mess with the Detective’s Woman” on that evening’s episode of “Rizzoli and Isles.” I thought: “Maybe I’ll finally see something of substance.”
Well since I live life on the “Cheap,” I had to wait for the episode to appear online. Lucky for me that only took approximately one hour.
Okay so the episode began with promise and I certainly appreciated the butch/femme dynamic with Dr. Isles all “Femmed-Up” and Rizzoli in casual butch-wear.
Then I saw the new “neighbor” Riley Cooper [played by Daniella Alonso] and I was OKAYYYY!!! Let The Games begin!
Especially when Dr. Isles gave Riley a look back or second glance as Dr. Isles and Jane entered Jane’s apartment. I mean the actress: Daniella Alonso is FINE ;oÞ and apparently enough inspiration for me to at least write this post.
I am thinking about what my next post will be about. The events of July 20th “emotionally” displaced many people, including myself.
I won’t immediately try to make sense of seemingly senseless actions for a couple of reasons: 1. Nothing could portend the events that ensued that grievous evening. 2. I will not attempt to write a post for others to reflect on before they write a post on the same subject or attempt profound enlightenment.
For now I am leaning towards writing about Jessica Clark’s debut on True Blood. That will come “In Time.”
It is one thing for politics to enter silly season in the midst of unbearable summer heat. It is another thing altogether for the right wing to resort to baseless McCarthyite attacks: tying people to terrorism based on bias and animus and with no foundation in fact or reason.
I would prefer to believe that the majority of Americans are intelligent enough to see through such thinly veiled tactics. Unfortunately we are also burdened with preventing these elected dimwits from rising to new heights after they are elected.
I would lke to know what the readers of Lesberatti are looking for when they visit my blog or what it is that you expect to see and what you would like to see more of.

This time I got information from Pam’s House Blend that is always trustworthy.
2) What does ANY woman who has a lesbian sexual encounter look like?
3) And did marital status ever stop any of these pols from swinging out?
False? In what way?
Is the status of Florida’s first black female lieutenant governor Jennifer Caroll and her in jeopardy? Did politics play a role in the allegations.
Is Jennifer Carroll under the impression that she's so good looking she can't possibly be gay? Then she must be bisexual because according to the logic over at AfterEllen, good looking women are bisexual.
When I first saw Romy Klinger on: The Real L Word, I thought that she was one fine LESBIAN. But I don’t embrace her bisexual persona this season and I will explain why:
In 2006 I was in graduate school earning a Masters of Science Degree in Knowledge Management. The Core of my studies focused of the topic of “Identity” and “Sense of Self.”
The assumption was that once I completed my studies that my sense of self and identity would be firmly established and that no matter how my surrounding environment changed, I would remain the person I am. It’s all about knowing oneself.
I don’t find it enjoyable to watch a woman justify her renewed heterosexuality by disparaging the gay community for engaging in: “Incestual” relationships. Romy the word you are for is: “Incestuous.”
Hetrosexualizing The REAL L Word
Once again Chaiken panders to the penis possessors. Deja Vue? Isn't this what happened just before the first L Word went "Belly Up" and was dead in the water?
But the reason that the gay community is allegedly incestuous is because Gay communities are smaller than heterosexual communities D-U-H.
More importantly Klinger says that she was raised by two moms, spent years munching carpet, falling in love and wanting to marry a woman, but she now questions as to why some in the Lesbian community won’t now see her as a lesbian.
Well when you f#%! a dude you are not a lesbian. When you’re with a woman you are, with a man? No.
Maybe Klinger was never really a lesbian to begin with, maybe she should take time to decide who she is.
If gays and lesbians can live in secrecy for years before coming out of the closet as gay, why can't they do the same thing and come out as straight? Well in the REAL world that doesn't happen now does it? A woman cannot taste the "Rubyfruit" and be expected to subscribe to a diet of strictly bananas.
I saw the movie the day it opened and my neighbor saw Snow White and the Huntsman during the weekend we had The Storm Of The Year.
Funny how 500,000 people were without electricity for up to 10 days and yet none of the movie theaters lost power. Was this Hollywood’s attempt to boost sagging ticket sales?
I almost expected to see George W. Bush fly over in a helicopter ala Katrina style.
But I digress. Yes it’s official: Two astute movie goers [My neighbor and Myself] agree that Charlize Theron surely deserves an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Ravenna the: “Evil Queen” [whether she should win is quite another story] and that if anyone should be blamed for: Snow White and the Huntsman being perceived as “Bleh” it’s Kristen Stewart and her ”Dull as Dishwater" performance as the misbegotten heir o the throne that Theron’s evil queen usurps.
The real star of the movie is undoubtedly Charlize Theron as the wicked queen, who is obsessed with preserving her looks and her own, highly individualized take on women’s rights [which didn’t exist during this Medieval fantasy].
Therefore of course one cannot criticize a movie because the antagonist alludes to thinly veiled feminism during a time when feminism didn’t openly exist! OMFG are you serious!?
Anywho, Theron is so DAMN fine as she hisses ‘Men use women [what else is new]! Beauty is power!’, while assassinating her new husband the king, Snow White’s father.
This Movie is Raw, Violent , Sad and Shocking.
Actress Kristin Chenoweth has left the hospital after being injured on the New York set of CBS' drama "The Good Wife."
The 43-year-old actress is at home recovering after being hit on the head by a piece of set equipment that fell in a gust of wind on Wednesday, her publicist Jill Fritzo told CBSNews.com in a statement.
In a statement, Chenoweth thanked everyone "for their prayers and good wishes."
CBS Television Studios released a statement to CBSNews.com following the incident: "This afternoon, while filming a scene for The Good Wife in Brooklyn, a gust of wind blew a lighting silk out of place striking actress Kristin Chenoweth. She received treatment on the scene by the show's medic until a New York Fire Department emergency medical team arrived and transported her to the hospital. All of us at the studio and the show are thinking about Kristin and wishing her a quick recovery."
On "The Good Wife" Chenoweth portrays a "top-of-her-game political reporter" who wants to know more about Peter Florrick's (Chris Noth) campaign and marriage to Alicia (Julianna Margulies). The new season of "The Good Wife" premieres Sept. 30.
Chenoweth took home a Tony Award for her role in Broadway's "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." She also won an Emmy for her work on the TV series "Pushing Daisies." She has appeared on "Glee" and "Hot in Cleveland," and has a role in the upcoming film, "Hit and Run," which opens in theaters on Aug. 24.
I know that I had previously written that I would try not to be so harsh concerning the topic of bisexuality, but does it really matter whether I am or am not critical?
It’s not like I know if I offend readers, it’s not like I receive feedback, in fact as far as I’m concerned people that visit Lesberatti do so for the links or to read my criticism of other lesbian websites. That’s fine because I expect nothing more from a readership of whom I am probably old enough to have given birth to.To The Insufferable, Know NOTHING MORONS Over a certain lesbian site: Leave the memory of Gia Carangi ALONE!
"Gia Carangi was openly Gay and made no attempt to hide her sexual orientation."
Contrary to the HBO film: “Gia” and the LIES posted on the online lesbian menstual rag AfterEllen, Carangi was NOT bisexual. Being raped in a Heroin “shooting-gallery” does not make a lesbian Bisexual. Neither does having sex with men to get modeling jobs in order to support a Heroin addiction after being blacklisted in the industry make a Lesbian bisexual. You never read of Gia having any romantic relationships with males.So why is AfterEllen still promoting that tired misconception that Gia was Bisexual, when everyone who was close to her knew that “Being a Lesbian was the ONLY THING that Gia was sure about in her troubled life! [Sic]” hairdresser and photographer Maurice Tannenbaum.
Hell I KNEW that Gia was LESBIAN! and I never even got to meet the woman!If a woman is Beautiful and she is a lesbian it doesn’t mean that she must be bisexual, what kind of message is AfterEllen sending it’s confused readership? That one must be unattractive to be a lesbian?
Gia was looking for stability in her life, while I was: “Desperately Seeking Gia.”
To many Gia did not look stereotypically lesbian and she often found it impossible to convince people that she was in fact gay and interested in a long-term relationship with a WOMAN! Prior to her meteoric rise in modeling Gia presented herself as [soft] butch:
Gia Marie Carangi was an absolutely beautiful butch lesbian and I was absolutely smitten!
Alabama Public Television Apparently Heading Far Right
Alabama Public Television (APT), a voice of reason in a state that often seems to have very little, is apparently succumbing to the crazies. It’s all that inbreeding I tell ya’.
Last week, the two top executives of the network were summarily fired by the Alabama Educational Television Commission, APT’s governing body, after they resisted an effort by a new commissioner to air DVDs produced by a far-right theocrat who has been roundly condemned by historians. In the days that followed, three members of a foundation set up to raise money for APT also resigned.
The videos were produced by:David Barton – Extremist ‘Historian’ for the Christian Right, who claims falsely that America was founded as a Christian nation and has also become Glenn Beck’s unofficial — and completely untrained — “historian.” The DVDs were suggested by commissioner Rodney Herring, an Opelika-based chiropractor who was appointed to the panel last year and elected its secretary in January.
Immediately after meeting in executive session June 12, commissioners ordered APT Executive Director Allan Pizzato and his deputy, Pauline Howland, to clear out their desks and leave APT’s Birmingham headquarters. Pizzato had been APT executive director for 12 years; Howland was his deputy director and the network’s chief financial officer.
Pizzato would not comment on the reasons for the firing, other than to say commissioners were seeking to go in “a new direction.”
As I wait for the Real L Word, I watched the premier of Sky1’s latest production: Sinbad [The Series}. Yes this is the same network to grace us with Chloe Sevigny as Mia the Transgendered assassin in Hit and Miss.
If the rest of the season is like the premier I think I am gonna really like Sinbad. See I am a huge fan of the old fantasy movies like Jason and the Argonauts, Sinbad and the original Clash of the Titans but this new lens is progressive because the main characters are people of color and can I tell you how relieved I am to see protagonists not portraying maids or servants or “gangstas.” I mean seriously it was really great to see actresses of African descent like Estella Daniels [Right] portraying royalty as was historically accurate.
Some of the angles are very reminiscent of Spartacus and although the show is not ass bloody as Spartacus, I did find myself shouting: “Save Her” as Sinbad attempts to save a woman trapped in a sinking ship. He saves her [Maltese actress Marama Corlett: Left].
Sure Sinbad may have been Persian but I must admit that Elliot Knight is a cutie as Sinbad.
1. If the person says their relationship is over but has rules that prevent them from openly dating you, lest it cause a scandal, then they are not finished with their former partner.
2. When there are children involved, you stay out of it until everything is finalized, until their relationship is Truly over. People don't have to stay together just because they have children but You don’t bust up families, gay or straight.
3. Adults can set rules for sharing, but I have learned that when young children are involved, things become a hell of a lot different and more complicated because children perceive EVERTHING, they are affected.
