Friday Forum: Be a Yenta to Lindsay Lohan

It’s that time of the week, when Queerty takes a break from the opinion-making and puts you, the readers, in charge. Each Friday, we invite you to be the pundit on a hot-button question facing the LGBT community and its allies. As always, we expect people to be respectful and considerate of others by refraining from personal attacks. We present the information, you make the decision.

wi_ronson_070531_msIf you watched Lindsay Lohan’s interview about her break-up with DJ Sam Ronson with Ellen yesterday, you learned some very important things.

1. Ellen Degeneres is the lesbian version of Larry King when it comes to break-ups. She’s usually so sweet and nice, but when it comes to making LiLo squirm, America’s Favorite Lesbian can’t help but tear into America’s Favorite Trainwreck.

2. Poor Lindsay Lohan was dumped and nobody but her good friend, The Media, had the grace to actually tell her she had booked a one-way ticket to Splittsville.

3. When Lindsay Lohan answers Ellen’s question about why Ronson may have a restraining order against her, her response is the sort of coke-fueled, manic crazy-person response that explains exactly why someone might want to, you know, stay far far away from you.

But, things are looking up for Lindsay. She seems to be less of a hurricane than she was a few years ago and rumor has it, she may be headlining “Peepshow”, a semi-nude show at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood, replacing the show’s current star, Mel B.

So, even though Lindsay’s been dumped, there’s still hope– we think. It seems unfair however, that Ellen alone gets to be Lindsay’s gay yenta. Our loyal Queerty readers always have advice for us (mainly specific details on the sorts of objects we could be shoving and where we ought to be shoving them), so why not spread the love and tell us what Lindsay Lohan should do for an Act II? Should she try to win Sam back? What sort of break-up advice do you give a mega celebrity with a history of rampant self-destruction? Are celebrity break-ups all that different from regular people break-ups?

Also, ladies– we know you’re out there– is there any lesbian specific break-up advice you’d give LiLo? Should she move on, find a rebound (we want names!) or get crazy crazy revenge? Is she just going to go back to guys or is she going to chase down Sam and win her back? Who wants to bet that she’ll handle things quietly away from the public light? We put it to you: Lindsay Lohan’s been dumped. What should she do now?
