    You might add to these news flashes a remarkably stupid article by Daphne Merkin in the current issue of “T”, the New York Times fashion magazine (!), in which she asserts that “lesbianism has finally come into a glamour of its own,” going “beyond butch and femme archetypes.” Apparently she has a crush on Rachel Maddow…

    Eeeewww. (The notion that Merkin has a crush on anyone, not that anyone has a crush on Maddow.) Lesbianism as a fashion statement! How clever.

    Lesbian fashion statements… I just had to really laugh at this one. Ah the good old days when people feared us ax carrying Amazons out in the world, now they make us into fashion statements! Harumph!

    More than 24 hours and no one has made a merkin joke yet? Where are all the early American historians of sexuality?

    Ouch, JJO! I considered it, but it seemed too much of a layup. (Well, that and the fact that this is a post suggesting that Peter Boyles is a jerk for calling someone by a private part.)
