I CAN SEE LESBIANS FROM MY HOUSE!
There were a handful of queer women at this year’s Emmy Awards, America’s annual celebration of
sexism television. Here’s a quick look at some of them.
Cynthia Nixon posed with her partner Christine Marinoni:
OK, fine, so the latter aren’t technically a lesbian couple. But they’re pretty much honorary lesbians by now, right? In fact, I think the name "Tina Fey" should become shorthand for smart, feminist, lesbian-inclusive behavior. As in, "Donating money to fight Prop. 8 is so Tina Fey."
It could even be used in reverse — as in, "Voting for Sarah Palin is so not Tina Fey."
What’s that you say? You want to see Tina and Amy playing Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton one more time? Well, OK then, if you insist.
Still makes me laugh, no matter how many times I watch it.
Tina Fey doesn’t want to keep us laughing, though — at least, not this way. “I want to be done playing this lady Nov. 5,” she told reporters. “So if anybody can help me be done playing this lady Nov. 5, that would be good for me.”
That’s so Tina Fey.
