So this past weekend saw a Hollywood star come out and admit that she was gay at a rally protesting the passing of Prop 8 in California.
It wasn't the biggest secret in the world. I'd heard rumblings about her sexual orientation for a while now. And that is because she didn't work too hard at keeping it a secret. She said that everyone she knows knew that she was gay, but she just never felt like talking about her sexual life in public. She was even married late last month before the election. I gotta give her mad respect for going against her natural privacy this past weekend and talking about how much it hurt her and the rest of this country that civil rights were taken away from a group of folks in such a "progressive" state like California.
I don't know when she first came onto my radar, but whenever it was...I wasn't a fan. I just didn't get her. I thought her comedy came across as forced and a little too angry. But she slowly started to win me over. And I eventually developed a bit of a crush on her, especially as Barb on The New Adventures of Old Christine. What can I say? I'm a boob guy. Now THAT particular celebrity fantasy is shattered. ;)
Anywho...couldn't be prouder of her this past weekend. Hopefully all of these protests will have some kind of substantive effect on the voting populace and that this wrong can be righted sometime in the not-too-distant future.
Here's a pre-out Wanda on gay marriage. Enjoy!
PS - Oh yeah. 42. Today. Feh!
