Queerty ReBUTTal: Special Edition

Why is it that the short weeks feel so long? We don’t know. We do know, however, that today’s (blessedly) Friday. Do you know what that means? That’s right – it’s Queerty ReBUTTal time! Yay!

Earlier this week, lesbian talk show host Ellen Degeneres hosted presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. While it’s incredible enough that we have an out lady lover hosting a popular television show, it’s even more astonishing that a powerful politician such as Clinton would volunteer to appear. It wasn’t too long ago that gay people were only depicted as sex-crazed maniacs or severely disturbed villains. How things have changed!

One of the major developments came in 1977, when Billy Crystal played Jody Campbell on Soap. In honor of all the strides we’ve made, we’re dedicating this ReBUTTal to Soap. Check out some scenes, after the jump.

It’s worth noting that we asked Crystal for an interview, but his flacks declined. Shame…
