Anne of Green Gables

Did you know that Anne of Green Gables is a lesbian fantasy? So much so, in fact, that it pivots on a scene in which Anne and her “bosom friend” Diane race to bed together, only to be thwarted by a crone, already in the bed, who shames them. FYI, it was Romanticism that made Anne gay.

The things you learn from PBS....



My wife will be crushed! She loves Anne of Green Gables! I can’t wait to tell her. :)

Tell her, at least, that it’s a very sweet lesbian fantasy, as far as that can go while still supporting patriarchy, it is funny.

I guess this explains why Gilbert was always such an absentee character…and why the books got so boring after they get married.

The PBS special didn’t go so far as their marriage, but it was inevitable… Homosocial/-sexual behavior can be tolerated only so much before heterosexuality asserts its majoritarian ways.

Speaking of lesbian fantasies, I’m really disappointed that I don’t drive any of the top 10 lesbian cars. On the plus side, J BG drives two of them.

Well, you know the way it is in the far left of academia!

You’re fortunate, at least, that no one just assumes you’re a lesbian just because of your cars.

Good from that article:

Cars are no more straight or gay than cellphones, office chairs or weed whackers. But in recent years that truism has not stopped a perception among some motorists that certain cars can, in the right context, be statements about a driver’s sexual orientation.

oh, we are actually one off on both

we have an outback and our beetle is not a convertible.

so, we are the nice Christian couple who likes to have gay friends just to say woo hoo! look at us! aren’t we the rebels!
