Should we care who is bisexual on TV? Duh. I mean, visibility, right? Popmatters.com details the sexuality of Brittany and Santana on Glee, Callie on Grey’s Anatomy and Kalinda of The Good Wife, coming to the conclusion that it’s “nobody’s concern” who someone sleeps with.

(Has this person ever watched an episode of these shows?)

People love to write books about their time with Susan Sontag, and I love it because I read every single one of them. The latest is Sempre Susan: A Memoir of Susan Sontag by her former assistant Sigrid Nunez. She tells ArtForum:

When we first saw America’s Next Great Restaurant, Kansas City-based contestant Sandy DiGiovanni definitely pinged.
But it wasn’t until this last week’s episode that she actually said anything gay, and it was when she mentioned that she’d “fired her girlfriend” from a bar she used to manage that we congratulated our gaydar.
