Oscar Contenders: Psycho Lesbian Drama v. Lesbian Bed Death

Early buzz for best actress Oscar nominations are going to Annette Benning in The Kids Are All Right and Natalie Portman in the soon to be released Black Swan. Sorta Madonna/Whore complex but with lezzy sterotype.

Not to bore you with all issues queers had with TKAR when it was first released (we discussed them pretty thoroughly in both Scribie's and Patricia's blogs,) and in fairness no one has seen BS yet, save for a few Venice Film critics, but suffice to say there is a dark lesbian subplot.

When reporters asked Cholodenko what she thought of the lesbian sex in BS she remarked, "sounds like the kind of subplot that could have not been in the movie." And in response to questions about her lesbian character straying to be with a man she said, "Sexuality is fluid. Not everyone lives on the lesbian reservation."

I've never been into stocking

I've never been into stocking and mutilation; think I'll skip the swan.

if it were actually a stocking, as in fishnet, movie (see my misspelling), that might pull me in.  Wink

HOWL

HOWL Womyn's land is in Huntington, VT.  ( I think)  They were amazingly hospitable.  They raise pigs and sheep and have a giant garden.  They live on acres of owned land and let us camp there.  You should defintely check it out!

Hold the swing!

Just went and unchecked "fluid" from my 'Park profile. I don't like how that word is being used lately - and just maybe I never really understood what it meant. That labeling is a complicated and confusing system we've created for ourselves. Ignorance is not bliss with this!

all issues queer

are not boring. So now we live on a "reservation" huh? I wonder what she means by that reference? Are we (lesbians) the oppressed with no future in this country? Are we traveling our "Trail of Tears"? 

Now, I know it took a while, but the Native Oppressed figured it out.....counting scalps and taking names in casinos through out America! Maybe, we (lesbians) need to sharpen our knives and learn how to play the game better.

Lesbian Seperatists??

I stayed on a Womyn's Land over the summer in Vermont.  Perhaps she believes we all live on womyn's land...or she lives under a rock? Wink

I like that! That reservatioin reference brings too much negativity with it for me.

Going to have to read up on that Womyn's Land - thanks for the reference.
