Then they’ll know that we’ve been loving each other

My boss was interviewed for this Radar article on bisexual chic, which is cleverly titled “Girls Gone Wilde.”

The good:

Though Warn doesn’t report on closeted couples, she says, “Lindsay and Sam are in a sense giving people permission to write about their relationship by not denying anything.” She adds that the very banality of the paparazzi shots is what makes them so fascinating. “I don’t think Lindsay’s just doing this for the press.”

That said, Warn does fret that straights may see the relationship as “just another example of Lindsay going off the deep end—a negative thing, like drug use. I joke that there are some people we don’t need on our team. I think of the game red rover—like, ‘Please send Lindsay back.'”

The unexplicably yet predictably awful:

“Some people think Tila represents a media apocalypse,” notes Diane Anderson-Minshall, editor of the San Francisco–based lesbian magazine Curve. “But for better or worse she does increase visibility.” In fact, Anderson-Minshall says, “a lot of current lesbians are women who at one time were those Girls Gone Wild girls. That’s how I was. The fact that men get off on it—well, it gives you a convenient outlet to explore how you feel.” While Katy Perry’s song may be kind of dumb, Anderson-Minshall adds, “maybe some girl in high school who is a lesbian will say, ‘What the hell. I’ll try it.'”

We don’t need high school girls to “try” kissing others just because. Just like Tila Tequila, it takes away from credibility of same-sex sexuality. It’s kind of like calling being gay a “lifestyle.” Try it on for size! (I wonder why some people get the idea we have an agenda…)

    I totally agree….whatever about Katy Perry, Tila Tequila should be banned from the public eye. She can do no good!
