Let's Get Something Straight (So to Speak)

Rachel Griffiths and Toni Collette ABBA it up in "Muriel's Wedding"

Celesbianism was not the buzzword of 2008, and don't let the Australians, who spend all their time shoplifting and listening to ABBA records*, tell you otherwise. The "celesbianism" movement is as dumb as the "gayelle" revolution. If we have to talk about this subsection of the gay community at all, let's stick to fauxmosexual, another word the Australians, who spend an inordinate amount of time worrying about how to best label seemingly bisexual female celebrities, recently promoted.

So far nothing has presented itself, but I remain optimistic about what the coming week might have in store.
