Morning Brew – Monday, Dec. 19: Lesbian MCs launch “YO LGBT Raps!”, Tucky Williams on “Girl/Girl Scene” and its gay women


Good morning! Did you finish all your holiday shopping yet?

Wow, now this is what I’m talking about. I need albums by all these women, especially So the Kid.

It’s always interesting to read someone’s account on why lesbianism exists. Today’s idea is from a Nigerian psychologist named Philip Adegoke and is an article called “Why Lesbianism Is Taking Over The FCT.” Philip says:

…psychologically, women who indulge in lesbianism are those who have masculine desires; they tend to reject the subversive role nature has given them. But there are some women who, having realised that they are getting attracted to females, deny or hide it. That is why most of them experience depression. They are suicidal and are likely to use hard drugs.

I don’t know if he is speaking specifically about lesbians in Nigeria or what, but couldn’t they have found an actual lesbian psychologist?

The Atlantic interviewed Candace Gingrich-Jones and she talked about having to come out twice: First to her family and second to the public after her brother, Newt, became Speaker of the House.

Louis CK said on a podcast that Billie Jean King was his childhood hero. As she should be!

Looks like Rooney Mara‘s stuck with that cut for a while! Both Girl with the Dragon Tattoo sequels will be filmed back-to-back, likely sometime in 2012.

Girl/Girl Scene creator/star Tucky Williams talked with about making a show about women who are happy to be gay, not tortured by it. We are happy about that, too, Tucky. The Season 1 finale comes out today. Check back soon to watch it all go down.

Glee: The Concert Movie comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray tomorrow. Did you almost forget? Probably not!
