    "Ellen" Ends

    After 19 seasons, the final episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" aired today. DeGeneres spoke of how attitudes toward LGBTQ people have changed in that period.

    "Twenty years ago when we were trying to sell the show, no one thought that this would work," said the out lesbian. "Not because it was a different kind of show, but because I was different."

    She recalled, "When we started the show, I couldn't say 'gay' on the show."

    Over in Tallahassee, Gov. Ron DeSantis observed, "That was such a fine tradition we nostalgia-loving Floridians decided to resurrect it."

    Arena Audacity

    I might make an official complaint.

    As a Seattle Storm season-ticket holder, I went to last night's game against the Chicago Sky fully expecting a family-friendly event.

    What did I see? Rampant heterosexuality.

    My lesbian friends and I were surrounded by amorous straight people. Sitting next to us, in front of us, behind us. One couple was just in their teens!

    If they have to be that way, must they flaunt it?

    Thank goodness a lesbian couple got engaged on the court during halftime. A bit of normalcy that helped me endure the evening.

    At tomorrow's game, if I'm again encircled by heteros kissing and being as bold as you please, I'll tell them all to knock it off and remember where they are. We can tolerate their being at a WNBA game, but nobody needs to see that freaky stuff.

    Especially not the children.

    The Howling

    I read today that animal shelters are overwhelmed with surrendered pandemic pups.

    Stop it, people. Surely you realize there aren't enough lesbians in America to fix this problem?

    Violently Illogical

    PinkNews reports that two men have been given life sentences for raping a lesbian teenager in South Africa.

    One of the men, while raping her, asked her to be his girlfriend.

    The only response I can think of is, "Naturally. And if you beat my head in with a hammer, I'll want to have your children."

    Awards Awareness

    Yesterday evening, as I watched the NCAA women's basketball tournament on TV, I assumed I was tuned in to the most lesbionic viewing option of the night. 

    Imagine my surprise this morning when I read that, over on another channel, the Academy Awards had been busy going sapphic.

    In her acceptance speech after winning the Oscar for best supporting actress, Ariana DeBose said, "Imagine this little girl in the back seat of a white Ford Focus. Look into her eyes, you see an openly queer woman of color and Latina who found her life and strength in art. That’s what I believe we are here to celebrate."

    DeBose, who won for her turn as Anita in "West Side Story," added, "So to anybody who has ever questioned your identity, ever, ever, ever—you, you find yourself living in the gray spaces—I promise you this:  There is indeed a place for you."

    As she sought to inspire others, the first queer woman of color to win an Oscar invoked famous lyrics from her movie that were written by a beloved gay man who died four months ago. The nation must've been awash in rainbow tears last night.

    Kristen Stewart didn't take the Oscar for playing Princess Diana in "Spencer," but she strode the red carpet with her female fiance, Dylan Meyer. Also tripping the carpet fantastic were wife and wife Niecy Nash and Jessica Betts.

    Out comedian Wanda Sykes was one of three women to host the show. In a shot at Florida's Don't Say Gay bill, Sykes opened with, "We’re going to have a great night tonight—and for you people in Florida, we’re going to have a gay night,” and she and her co-hosts broke into choruses of "gay, gay, gay."

    They weren't lying. It feels like it was a breakthrough night for gay women. I'd like to thank the Academy.

    The GG Question

    When a straight woman remarks, "It must be so much easier to date women," what would you like to say to her?

    Power Play

    The Canadian women's ice hockey team that captured Olympic gold yesterday has at least seven openly LGBTQ players. According to NBC News, it's the gayest Winter Olympic team ever.

    And certainly it's the gayest thing in skates since Disney on Ice.

    This Week's Quote

    It's so tiring making love to women, it takes forever.  I'm too lazy to be a lesbian.

    This Week's Quote

    I would like to see what the next iteration of show business is. I think we’re in a transition period where people aren’t going to be going to movies on Friday night anymore. And depending on how this Covid thing goes, gathering in groups might not be a good idea for a while. So what’s the new thing? I think there are so many possibilities. I wish I was a 22-year-old starting again. There seems to be so many possibilities now. And I’d be getting a lot more sex with women.

    Fallow Period

    When the Chicago Sky captured the WNBA title today, the women's professional basketball season ended. The women's college basketball season doesn't start in earnest for a couple of months.

    It's a gloomy period between seasons for this lesbian women's hoops fan. If you want me, I'll be hanging out with Punxsutawney Phil.
