OK,

we all knew,

right?

not,

a well kept secret:-)

In fact,

I don’t think,

it was,

a secret .

Ms Foster,

luv, luv, luv her!!

wanted to keep,

her private life,

private.

I believe,

that’s a,

fundamental right,

private life.

Of course,

when you have,

closet cases,

persecuting,

gays,

that’s something else.

Act up,

had a point,

when they were,

outing,

people who were,

hiding,

behind beards,

while people,

 were dying,

and they were,

dying,

in part,

because of,

 hypocrissy,

of  the,

powers that be,

and when,

part of that,

structure,

that establisment,

happened to be,

gay,

and hiding it,

it was,

somehow,

 worst.

This has nothing,

to do with,

the lovely Jodie,

she has never,

denied,

or,

claimed any beard,

she’s a dyke,

and we,

all knew it,

but,

just as there is,

importance,

in the,

It Gets Better Project,

telling youth,

things,

mostly improve,

and,

the whole,

what doesn’t,

kill you,

makes you stronger,

school of thought,

so,

 is there symbolism,

in a beautiful,

articulate,

double Oscar winning actress,

telling,

Peoria, Victoria,

Brossard,

whatever,

I love this woman,

and we form,

a stable family unit,

and it’s important,

not for approval,

or accceptance,

but,

because our rights,

still,

today are not,

guaranted,

and these,

people vote.

So,

 we need,

the Jodies,

of the world,

to stand up,

out and proud.

Well,

I think so,

What do you think?

Later girls

BB

  1. In fact, JF was just dumped (after a year together) by the woman–Cindy Mort–for whom she dumped her long time partner–her ‘beautiful Cydney’….Cindy Mort dumped JF for Lindsey Lohan’s ex galpal…

    So, it’s great to see lesbians as happily miserable in their cheating and partner switching as heterosexuals:-)

  2. BB! Don’t feel sad…you can write about stuff from Facebook, you simply must do so in the moment! You do realize that the article that you linked to is 4 years old, right?

    I think that JF’s public declaration, then cheating while working on The Brave One, is actually, in a crazy kind of way, good! JF’s ‘trials’ normalize her relationships as almost nothing else could. One might posit that she is just like Maria Shriver’s husband…(I’m not even going to try to spell Arnold’s last name:-)…) Now JF is feeling the sting of being dumped for a younger woman, just as did her ‘beautiful Cydney’… Maybe Cindy Mort feels ‘free’ now that she is away from JF–just as JF declared upon dumping Cydney…

    I know, I know, just a bit of schadenfreude…but, I’m just sayin’:-)

  3. BB: It’s hard to be objective about such things. Who really knows what goes on with all that wife, girlfriend swapping..? It’s a small pool, or at least what we see is a small pool, and we only get the end result, not the process that led to the outcome.

    You BB are an optimist and a romantic 🙂 please do not be embarrassed.
