By sharing these private images, Ellen and Portia make the idea of same-sex marriage and relationships seem less scary. Radical? No. Progress? Definitely. Maybe Ellen wasn’t joking about world domination.

You’ve heard of the Hipstamatic application for iPhone but now it’s time for the Lesbomatic! Digital photography has never looked so queer! This iPhone application turns your plain pictures into lesbian works of art.
You know what lesbians lack in their lives? No – not that. Pressure. That’s right. We are all just gliding along with no stress at all. We never agonize over decisions, never feel regret. Heck, we don’t think at all! We just float from thing to thing with the ease (and intellect) of Tarzan swinging on his rope swing. Fortunately, other lesbians are willing to help!

There should be a special clothing store for lesbians. In this magical shop, there would be no women’s clothes and men’s clothes. There would just be clothes – some for the girly girls, some for butches and some for everyone in between. The clothes would be stylish and there would be lots of friendly queer salespeople on hand to help you put a look together. I can tell you one thing for certain – such a shop does not exist at the Mall of America.

I’m not going to Pride this year and informing my friends of this decision has been like coming out all over again. I sit them down, take a deep breath and say, “There’s something that I have to tell you.” and they fidget nervously like I’m about to tell them that I finally offed my crazy gay neighbor who insists on vacuuming the mulberries out of his lawn at 5a.m.
I was a typical American for most of my life, never really knowing or caring much about soccer at all. I had never heard of the World Cup, had never seen a game, had no knowledge of crazy fans with painted faces waving flags and screaming wildly.
Then, I met my girlfriend.

There is a children’s book called, “Is Your Mama a Llama?” in which a little llama named Lloyd asks his animal friends about their mothers. We know something that Lloyd does not, however. We know that the word that goes best with “mama” is not “llama” – it’s “drama.” So, step aside Lloyd because I need to ask, “Does Your Mama Do Drama?”
We cannot let Vibram creep into the fashion lexicon of our community. It took long enough for us to transcend that whole Birkenstock stereotype and, if lesbians start buying these shoes en masse, we will never live it down. This is the sort of fashion mistake from which people do not recover. So, let us be vigilant. If you see a lesbian wearing these, wrestle the damn things off of her woman-lovin’ feet. Friends don’t let friends wear ugly shoes!
