All this loud "I'm in love and proud to be a gay woman in a business that accepts it!" or whatever and then back to a dude a year later makes us look like flakes at the very least, people who can change our sexuality at will, at worse.But I also think it is easier for them to be accepted when they come out This is what i noticed, Powerful Lesbians are always quiet about their personal lives. We might get a whisper here and there but when they're confronted about it they have a poker face. Wow, so quiet R16, that there is next to no traffic on this thread. There's not a lesbian contingency on DL at all anymore?Oh well, come over to the "Herbert Ross Troll" threads instead. I've noticed Hollywood also has its version of Lesbian Until Graduation or whatever it is called -- starlets who suddenly have wild lesbian affairs with a co-star, embrace it maybe not publicly but not with shame either, and then, poof, it goes away when it's husband time. Amber Heard is the extreme example but I know many who have gone the "bisexual" route like Drew Barrymore and it's no big deal -- but it's not exactly good for the cause either.Not that it matters so much these days with marriage and the like in full bloom but it's still annoying.I knew one of those twits in Austin (not Amber though she was also a twit from Austin) who would be lesbian and in love one day and then back to dating a boy the next whenever she started getting uncomfortable, acceptable in high school but not at 30.
It was the media that was keen to label her as an "ex-lesbian now married to Depp".(She listed herself as "Amber Van Ree" in incorporation documents, for political donations [where using an alias is illegal], and probably on the home they co-owned [I never saw the lease, though], and they'd been wearing matching rings since '07.) And she hadn't been with a man for over a decade. Then comes the bad stuff: Amber "comes out", but non-specifically, not mentioning Tasya, followed by their apparent break-up, followed by her PRomance with Depp, which has now graduated to "marriage".Is Johnny so drunk he doesn't know he's married to a lesbo?Not that lesbians necessarily have the same cause anyway so maybe they don't care.To be fair to Amber Heard, she was legally married (during that brief window of legality in '08, pre- Prop 8) to Tasya Van Ree.
