Back in April, Malinda blogged about lesbian-ish men. And in that case, lesbian-ish was a very good thing. I recently came across another blog that puts a different spin on that idea: Men Who Look Like Old Lesbians. As you can probably guess, it’s not exactly a compliment this time.
The blog ranges from the fairly obvious (Bruce Jenner) to the less obvious but pretty amazing (Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits). “Old” doesn’t always apply though, if you ask me — Noone looks like a soccer player I knew in college.
This picture of Richard Butler, lead singer of the Psychedelic Furs, made me do a double take. Is it the glasses? The hair? The earring?
It’s the whole thing!
But the guy I thought of right away is Christopher Walken. Mostly because I really did see his real-life old lesbian counterpart on the subway over the summer.
The others I thought of, Barry Manilow and Wayne Newton, have also been featured on the blog. I don’t think Garry Shandling has been featured there yet, and I swear he reminds me of my closeted 8th-grade math teacher. She was also the volleyball coach.
Oh, here’s one: Martin Short. Sorta.
And maybe Phil Donahue? To be precise, he looks like a lesbian’s mom: Betty DeGeneres.
Now I’m just confused.
