Kelly Osbourne is fit to be tied, and her vexation has everything to do with young female celebs who come out — and then jump right back in.

“There’s this whole generation of young Hollywood girls who can’t find love where they think it’s supposed to be,” she says, “and then they come out being gay and two weeks later they have a boyfriend. It drives me nuts!”
Talking to PrideSource, she says:
“I’m like, I know you. I’ve known you pretty much since before you used to shit outside of a diaper. You are not gay! But I think outing somebody in that way is just as bad as outing somebody who has not come out of the closet. It’s one of those things I have to keep to myself… and it drives me fucking crazy!”

She thinks all this trendy toing and froing with the lesbianism is damaging the LGBTQ community as a whole:
“I think it takes all the proactive work the LGBT community has done and sets them back: ‘Oh, so now you’re gay?’ Then two weeks later: ‘Oh no, that was just a phase.’ You don’t get to do that.
I’ve marched till my feet bled for the right of equal love in the gay community, and you’re just gonna step in because it looks cool for you and now tell everybody that you’re a lesbian when you’ve never even seen another puss that’s not yours so you can get attention?
My whole rule is, never say never. I’ve never been in a relationship with a woman, but I don’t know that it’s not a possibility.”
She must be specifically talking about Miley Cyrus who she has been friends with since they were kids.
This is why celebs and pseudo celebs need to understand that unless you’re looking to truly commit to someone of the same gender or you’re actually going to go in full and real detail about your orientation, preferences, behaviors and romantic instincts (which no non gay identifying celeb ever does) then it’s best to shut up about the special-ness of your sexuality and your experiments and your narcissism.
“no non gay identifying celeb” [sic] has ever gone into “full and real detail” about their sexual exploits? Are you serious?! Oh good grief.
Where did I say anything about “sexual exploits”? I mentioned the basic aspects of sexuality.
We’ve gotten an onslaught of male celebs and semi celebs who come out as bi/fluid/queer etc and then try to extreme why they’ve taken on those identities “in-depth” interviews. Yet, their explanations are typically vague and contradictory, usually can be summed up as “I might have sexual attraction to men. I might have sexual attraction to women. I might just like fvcking everybody. I will probably only date women. I just wanted to let the world know these things about me”. That’s not actually coming out. That just makes you sound like a hipster wannabe, a gay men who’d rather date women, a straight men who experimented a few times, a gay men who doesn’t mind sex with women, you’r in a Bryan Singer situation and so forth. No point of “coming out”, giving interviews about the nature of your sexuality, wanting to talk about the complexity of your sexuality and then you give nothing. These celebs are desperate to let people know how different and unique they are. And their desire to do so ultimately does more harm than good.
Only women actors seem to “pull” this.
Totally agree with her! Lately almost every female actress/singers are “coming out” as bisexual, I’ve never seen any of them with another girl… Let’s not forget the “old” ones that also do that, like Angelina Jolie, Drew Barrymore and so many others.
Lately? Try the last 30 years. Almost 2/3 of non-black female pop stars have discussed having interest in women or claiming they might be bi at some point in their career. None of them spoke much of it after the initial stir. And, to my knowledge, none of them have had substantial relationships with women.
There’s not a single celeb that has come out as bi/fluid/queer/pan over the past twenty years that is willing to speak frankly about their attractions and not a single one has seemed to have any interest in serious relationships with someone of the same gender.
So… With the final statement/quote in this article, she’s doing exactly what she’s slamming other “famous” women for?
Exactly. She ruined her whole spiel with that last sentence.
damn. ur reasoning skills are impressive…
she is talking about fake bisexual people. she’s just saying that she is open to the idea. a never say never kinda thing, as opposed to other celebrities who are not lesbians but pretend to be for the publicity…
So what DID ever happen to Anne Heche? Saw aliens and married a man.
Anne Heche got alienated.
Yeah, I’ve noticed this trend too. I even joked with my co-workers that if a female celebrity is looking for a boyfriend, just say she’s bisexual or has been with women. I guarantee she’ll be with a guy in the next week. But I also think that it’s because female sexuality is less threatening to the general public than male sexuality.
Make this guy talk about gay guys…i think he’s cute and want his perspective ha… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv9Lup6nIFQ
Casual honesty will never be widespread, because sexual behavior and “identity” is still a major sociological and psychological tool for many, which complicates outright honesty and works directly against self-accepting homos.
Basically. I think being bisexual/gay is almost the ‘in’ thing for kids these days . Nothing wrong with it but sheesh not every girl is a lesbian. Just my thoughts…
“Gay” has never been “in”. Sexual ambiguity and “complexity” becomes popular here and there. Admitting that you’ve had or is willing to have sex/relationships outside of your orientation has been in at time. Flat-out being gay, not so much.
Women fake a lot of things. They make up their faces to appeal to men. The natural lips and eyes are lost in a blur of lipstick and mascara. They’re putting on a mask.
They do the same with their sexuality. They invent an attraction to women because they know that sleazy guys are attracted to that sort of thing. These women are doing it for men because they know a man will reward them.
Contrast this with the shrieking horror expressed by a woman if her man expresses a sexual interest in men. No wonder so many men feel uncomfortable admitting to same- sex attractions or feelings.
There was a point in time when Anna Paquin/Drew Barrymore/Meagan Fox came out as Bisexual that I realized that it seemed like every female celeb who came out as Bi, did it when they were dating or married to a man. There are also actors like Ezrra Miller who come out as “Queer” but then very quickly say “Oh, I’m really mostly attracted to women, but I have a lot of friends who……
That’s why I give it up to Kristen Stewart, Neil Patrick Harris, Ellen, and others who come out and then actually live the life that they said they lived.
Ezra said he was “queer” not only because he had queer-identifying friends but because he liked “making out with guys sometimes”. As if many gay men don’t make out with women or women who aren’t attracted to women make-out with each other. In general, he’s one of the most ridiculous and pretentious examples of human species. And he was that before he “came out”, so I was never inclined to take him seriously.
If a celebrity comes out as bi/queer/fluid/etc and says they are that because they have sexual attraction to multiple genders (not that they “like” multiple genders or have had sexual engagement with multiple genders) I’m inclined to believe them and keep it pushing. When they get to the convoluted, vague, “philosophical” and/or contradictory explanations or bring up the “Kinsey Scale” they’re typically full of it. And their “identity”/behavior is just driven by narcissism or trying to get headlines or look cool. People just love to conveniently forget the meaning of sexual orientation or they just create their own definitions for these variety of “identities”.
For female celebs it’s not always about titillation. A lot of women indulge bi behavior. And they want to feel like they apart of the “community”. Often times, (with women at least) there’s no desire to manipulate.
As our mysteriously departed pal “Brian”/”Jason” used to say — they do it to “titillate” straight guys.
I used to think Bourbon St. in New Orleans was the only place where women “titillate” straight guys for free, but apparently there’s a lot more of it going on!
