Morning Brew – Monday, April 25: “Our Idiot Brother” trailer, lesbians are a hot new fashion accessory


Morning! I went to see Uh Huh Her last night and they put on a great show, even better than the first time I saw them a few years ago. Check them out on tour if you haven’t already.

If you missed Sara Ramirez on The View last week, you can watch the whole interview right here. She touches a bit on Callie’s sexuality vs. Arizona’s and a bit about the upcoming wedding episode.

The Times of London has decided we are the hot new accessory. Seriously — they say lesbians are fun new companions. They also tell you how to spot us, because we come in the following looks: “The fashionistas, the DJs, the latecomers.” Well I guess I’m not a trendy accessory, because I don’t fit into any of these things. Sorry straight people looking for a lesbian!

NYC maternity store Boing Boing is offering a discount to lesbian moms. The owners offering 10 percent off because they think it’s unfair that women make less than men, so they’d like to give couples that are made up of two moms a break. Owner Karen Paperno says, “‘The lesbians love it and the gay males get upset. But their disposable income is so much higher than women’s. Men just make more than women.”

A progressive mother in Florida protested in a unique way when her son got into trouble for calling a classmate a lesbian. The teacher called it “inappropriate language,” which the mom didn’t agree with. She didn’t think it was a bad word, and doesn’t want her son to use it as such. So what did she do? She spraypainted “Lesbians rock” on her van. I hope her son learned a valuable lesson — lesbian is a compliment!
