The New Yorker‘s Anthony Lane wrote up bisexual-themed films The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Chloe in a joint review this week, and he didn’t seem to really like either of them. The best part about the piece is this fun Lisbeth Salander graphic.
Don’t worry — we’ll have our own review of Chloe for you this week.
Another fun caricature comes by way of The Wall Street Journal‘s piece, “Showtime’s Bad Girls Make Good.” The premium cable network is home to Nurse Jackie, United States of Tara, Weeds and the new Laura Linney show, The Big C, all focused on flawed but enjoyable female characters. The WSJ notes:
Well, the problem wasn’t the gay factor, I can tell you that much: All of the aforementioned shows that are already on air have had LGBT characters. I’m holding out hope for The Big C to follow suit.
I’m going to preface this with an eye roll. Former Miss Singapore World, Ris Low, recently wrote a blog post about her sexuality. Apparently she “used to be confused” but got “so sick with men she decided to convert.” But wait, there’s more: If she dates a woman, she “two-times her” with a man. Eye roll has now turned into a huge groan.
From a lesbian sock to gay penguins, our LGBT-themed children’s books just keep coming, and it’s so exciting. Oh The Things Mommies Do is now available for purchase. Here’s an excerpt:
Lastly, some good news for Calzona fans.
See you tomorrow!
