60 Minutes "Something" before birth determines sexual orientation

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Sunday evening's edition of 60 Minutes included Lesley Stah's report “The Science of Sexual Orientation”  in which she explores recent research into sexual orientation.  Today, scientists are looking at genes, environment, brain structure and hormones. There is one area of consensus: that homosexuality involves more than just sexual behavior; it’s physiological. The show interviewed two […]

Catherine Specter defends premarital tweezing

Hurrah for Catherine Specter! This week's version of the PG column Cat's Call manages to avoid being racist or sexist.  She even musters up a little “catty” rant that is mildly amusing if not actually funny.  Otherwise, it was boring as can be. I guess that's the best we can expect.  Note that this week Cat adroitly […]

Not Gay Related: KDKA invades privacy, grief

      During the Thursday evening broadcast, KDKA news stepped over the line covering a local fire.  A Trafford fire left 10 people homeless; everyone made it out alive and unharmed.  But to get the sensational angle, David Highfield  stuck a camera in the face of one victim who was clearly distraught over the deaths of her […]

Crash deserved the Oscar

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Last night, we went to see Crash at The Manor in Squirrel Hill.  This is one of your lesbian correspondents stating that Crash deserved the Oscar for Best Picture over Brokeback Mountain.  I loved Brokeback and believe it to be one of the best movies in my 35 years of movie watching.   But Crash resonates […]

Cat Specter: Good girls don’t challenge racism

I’m not a fan of Catherine Specter’s alleged advice column in the Post-Gazette.  In fact, I’m secretly convinced she was planted by the Mellon-Scaife contingent to subtly shift PG readers back to “when men were men and girls were girls.”  Her advice has mostly been ridiculous and demeaning. Today, however, she took herself to a […]

Pennsylvania Lesbian Delight: Jodie Foster to Speak at Penn

Unproclaimed lesbian idol Jodie Foster will be the commencement speaker for the University of Pennsylvania's Class of 2006.  The university will bestow an Honorary Doctor of Arts degree upon Ms. Foster. My commencement speaker was the CEO of some chemical firm that had financial investments in apartheid South Africa.   🙁 Congratulations to the Penn lesbians! […]

Pittsburgh PG Gay Cowboy Quiz

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The Post-Gazette's Scott Mervis faces down Brokeback Mountain's impending dominance of the Oscars … With a nod to “Brokeback Mountain,” the PG brings you its first-ever gay-cowboy 12-question movie quiz. Because, to no one's surprise, the genre doesn't run deep, our focus here is not on cowboy movies with gay people, but rather, with Oscar-related […]

More Boondocks on Willie Nelson Gay Cowboy Song

This is especially funny.  One of the good things about Aaron McGruder's satire is not having to add much in the way of commentary.  Click on the cartoon to read the strip.

Catty Call – PG Column Throwback to When Women Were Girls

For proof the PG's inevitable downward spiral, one need look no further than “Just Ask Cat,” a misguided attempt to offer advice to Pittsburgh's lost and lovelorn.  Would-be columnist Catherine Specter dishes out bad advice more often than Joe Grata disses Penndot.   Ms. Specter is caught up in a retro-delusion that with the right […]
