Tonight is the premier of the new TLC show Big Sexy. It is about big, sexy ladies, living in NYC. I think that’s what it’s about at least, I’m still a little confused. They seem to be aiming for a plus size Sex and the City kinda deal, but reality, so who knows. It sounds like tonight’s episode will show the Big Sexies facing a club cover charge, while Small Sexies are strutting in for free. Jessica Wakeman of theFrisky wrote a review, “Big Sexy”, TLC’s New Reality Show About Plus-Size Women, wherein she said: The show, which debuts Tuesday night at … Continue reading Big Sexy on TLC – Will You Watch It?
Sorry to say but the whole world is an earthquake It tips and topples and forces hearts to break But water will find its own level And fires will slowly subside The balance will be restored It’s only a matter … Continue reading Hold On, But Let Yourself Sway
You hide your wisdom behind wide eyes Why do you insist on feigning surprise? You think you look so cute and fragile Why do you wear that silly fake smile? You seem to believe that it will impress Why do … Continue reading Why Do You Hide?
I know it isn’t indicative of great fame or good deeds done, but I think it represents the next step in my writing career – where I see stuff like this all the time! This made my week! I really, really, really wanted any/all of my MTV condom articles to get passed around online, because I think they address some really important issues. Maybe this will help spread the word: Continue reading This Made My Week
Not me, actually, right now. But thank you for your concern, if you clicked through because you thought that I was upset! I’m actually referencing a quote from Grey’s Anatomy that has stuck with me. I saw this article on theFrisky today, and it got me to thinking about crying in public. In “Girl Talk: Everyone Saw Me Cry“, Maude Standish recounts her recent experience with tears at a wedding. She made a solid observation that also cracked me up when she noted that:

Why do you need a compilation of the best TV coming out scenes? Maybe you have a kid, and you suspect that they might be gay. Or maybe your kid just came out, and you responded in fear, or anger, or disbelief. Maybe they came out years ago, and things have never been quite right between you since then. Regardless, you still have time to handle this situation in a loving, mature way.
It might feel awkward or confusing or overwhelming, but I’m going to help with some coming out scene examples from TV. You can read the quotes here, or Netflix/DVR/etc these episodes to see how it all plays out. Either way will hopefully give you some sample scripts to reference for your own conversation.
The parents from these shows didn’t all have perfect reactions to their kids coming out of the closet. Some of them reacted quite poorly, but made efforts to mend the relationship later. So it really isn’t too late – your child will appreciate that you’re trying to connect with them, even if it’s been a long time coming.
Glee – season 1, episode 4 “Preggers”
This is probably the very best coming out scene that I’ve ever viewed on TV. I put it first because Kurt’s dad isn’t 100% comfortable with the idea just yet, but he’s doing everything he can to let Kurt know that he loves him. I think some parents are worried that they’re expected to immediately become card-carrying members of PFLAG, marching in parades and putting up rainbow stickers. Your kid isn’t expecting all that, and especially not right away. They just want to know that you still love them and accept them, even if you don’t understand.
Kurt: Dad…I have something that I want to say. I’m glad that you’re proud of me, but I don’t want to lie anymore. Being a part of the Glee Club and football has really showed me that I can be anything. And what I am…is….I’m gay.
Burt: I know.
Burt: I’ve known since you were 3. All you wanted for your birthday was a pair of sensible heels. I guess I’m not totally in love with the idea, but, if that’s who you are, there’s nothing I can do about it. And I love you just as much – ok? Continue reading “Best TV Coming Out Scenes”
On June 13th, 1919, my great-grandma received a gift – “The Girl Graduate – Her Own Book”. It was a scrapbook for the modern young lady, and my very favorite treasure when I was younger. I used to read and … Continue reading Vintage Poetry – Would You?
Since I’ve apparently decided to post every piece of Disney Princess art that I come across, I’m sharing Tim Shumate’s tattooed ladies today. So far I think he has only created Ariel, Snow White, and Jasmine, but I’m hoping to … Continue reading Disney Princesses in Tattoo Form
