Lesbians get Marge-inalized

by Jeremy Hooper

On last night's edition of "The Simpsons," lesbians who fetishize blue hair and red pearl necklaces finally got their wish. That's because in a show dream sequence, Marge locked lips with a fellow XX-chromosomed Springfieldian:

The American Bug-Eyed, Mustard-Colored, Never-Aging Family Association is said to be up (in four finger-handed) arms.

Your thoughts

It's a sad statement on gay concerns when this is on all of the major gay blogs today. Sry, but the Simpsons are the least of my worries. They're purposefully satire, for God's sake. *rolls eyes*

And still not ONE of you guys--Pam, Andy, Queerty, or you, Jeremy, have discussed the Tufts study of the phenomenon of gaydar linked at Scientific American online.

Ah, priorities.

Jamie, please spare me the righteous indignation here. I almost never delve into frivolity. This is my eighth post today.

And the gaydar study you sent me and have mentioned here again? I did give mention to it. In 2008, when it first came out!

You can accuse me of lots of things. Unfocused is not one of them.

Technically it was what Homer was thinking about, not Marge.

I never accused you of a thing, Jeremy. I was making a statement about the sad state of our community's priorities. After years of commenting here I finally disagree on whether something's post-worthy ONE time, and you wanna jump down my throat for it?

Yah. Okay.

Further, the study is interesting and is once again in the news so I thought it would be nice just to mention that it's getting further exposure. It's far more relevant to the gay community than half the "news" the other sites give out. And yes, I do expect more from you, Jeremy.

If I want mindless drivel and drama I'll go to Queerty.

I didn't jump down your throat. I responded to your thoughts, which I still find to be unfair.

You called my priorities into question, and I defended the same. You said I hadn't mentioned the gaydar study, and I told you that I, in fact, had. Give-take.

Uh... this was one of Homer's fantasies.

Rumble, Robin: Yes, that's why I said "..in a show dream sequence, Marge locked lips with a fellow XX-chromosomed Springfieldian." Though I guess fantasy sequence would have been more accurate.

More importantly on this episode of the Simpsons the topic of transgerder persons was broached if ever slightly. At 3.40 we see the banner atop Springfield elementary announcing that a teacher has changed the gender.
