AOL’s Queersighted has compiled a list of the top 10 Gay Superheroes, but there’s only one woman, and Batwoman is not it.

Blake Lively, Julianne Moore, Penelope Cruz and Robin Wright Penn all attended the premiere of The Private Lives of Pippa Lee in New York City this weekend. Unfortunately, Blake brought her boyfriend and Julianne didn’t have her bondage kit on hand.

A manga comic, Red String, has a lesbian character that falls for her high school’s best athlete. The review doesn’t indicate a sport, but I’m thinking softball is a possibility.

Rachel Maddow was interviewed for a New York Times feature on Ellen Degeneres‘s success. She notes that Ellen, among other things, is “unthreatening.”

Aussie lesbian personality Ruby Rose has a model girlfriend (Catherine McNeil), but she told Who magazine she’s got a crush on Megan Fox. Ruby was featured in the publication’s sexiest people issue. Hollywood would be obliged to take note that these women would most likely be willing to make out on screen.

Rosie O’Donnell utilized some air time on Rosie Radio last week to say her partner, Kelli, had moved out two years ago. She slipped this news in while discussing the purchase of a chihuahua.

If you know who she is, you still probably don’t care: Former The City star Erin Lucas appeared in a short movie recently in which she kissed another girl. Or as she refers to it, “popped her lesbian cherry.”

Number 6 on Air America’s list of “The 10 Differences Between Fox News and MSNBC”: “The closest Fox News gets to allowing a lesbian to comment on policy is Lindsey Graham.” Numbers 1-5 and 7-10 are true as well.

Lesbian New Yorker journalist Ariel Levy has just made your life a little easier: Here’s her feminist reading list.

BTW, did you see that Olivia Wilde has joined Twitter?

Happy Monday!
