DON’T WORRY, ALYSON — WHEN JOSS SAID WILLOW WAS A GIANT LESBIAN,
HE DIDN’T MEAN IT LITERALLY
In a new interview with Alyson Hannigan, iF
magazine asked her how she felt about Willow’s role in the new "season
8" comic series of Buffy.
I’m a little nervous, probably. You know, when I first went through them
with [Lenk], I was like, "Well, who’s that?" He hadn’t read them all
either, and he said, "I think that’s you." I said, "Why am I so
big? That’s not me, that’s Dawn! She’s a giant. I don’t know what’s going
on." Joss had emailed me months and months before they ever came out,
and he had emailed me the one where I was on the cover, or Willow was on the
cover, and I was, "Wow, that’s a really cool drawing — I have no
idea who that is or where he’s going, but awesome!" And then I talked to him,
and he said, "That’s Willow." I’m like, "Awesome! She’s done
very good things to her body in the last year [laughs]."
Speaking of the Buffy comic, a new issue ("No Future for You:
Part III") came out this week, with a little bit of Willow and a
lot of Faith.

21, is openly gay, cute, and lists ’80s and ’90s hip-hop as her guilty musical
FINALLY, A MOVIE ABOUT THIEVING LESBIAN REPUBLICAN ARSONISTS!
AE reader Holly tipped
us off to a new film in the works by Richard Roepnack called Burn
that "follows the adventures of two arsonist thief lesbian republicans
as they tear up dystopian New York City and evade the police, drunk bail bondsmen
Unfortunately, I’m not making that plot up. Even more unfortunate? Throw in
a serial killer and a Charlize Theron cameo, and the film would
probably get an Oscar nomination.
Is it too much to ask for a nice romantic lesbian comedy/drama once in awhile?
One that doesn’t involve crime, aliens or a
lesbian affair that leads to ruin?
I MARRIED A LESBIAN MARTIAN
The new futuristic space adventure Xbox video game Mass Effect has
in Singapore for containing "a scene of lesbian intimacy" between
a female human and a female alien. Here’s the offending scene:
First it’s this video game, next they’ll be banning Star
