MELISSA: CALL ME THE HUSBAND (isn't that SPECIAL?)
NY Post ^ | December 26, 2003 | Dick Johnson

MELISSA Etheridge definitely wears the pants in her relationship with Tammy Lynn Michaels.

When Etheridge, 42, walked down the aisle in Malibu last September and swapped vows with Michaels, 28, the "bride" wore a lacey gown designed by Badgley Mischka.

These people belong in a psych ward and should not have custody of children.

I don't really care what an aging lesbian like that thinks. I do feel sorry for the children, though. As for equating her (luxurious and self-indulgent) situation with racial discrimination, well, that just shows her myopic and self-centered world view.

There's something about an article about two lesbians written by someone named "Dick Johnson" that amuses me.

When they finally let the 'coloreds' use their bathroom or their washroom, we all didn't die, did we? No. It's the same thing.

The difference is that being "colored" is neither a charade nor an elaborate pretension--it's an actual fact of nature.

Michaels, an actress now playing a lesbian on the cable series "The L Word," is also an author of children's books. Etheridge is more interested in politics, and had to interrupt the interview to conduct a phone press conference supporting Howard Dean.

This is becoming a disturbing trend. Women like Madonna and Tammy Michaels writing children's books.

Etheridge and Michaels gush to the gay magazine about how much they love each other and discuss the importance of their "marriage" to the relationship.

Oh, oh.. sounds like trouble in paradise to me.. ala Ellen. Me thinks they love a bit too loudly.. must be a man in the woodpile somewhere.. developing. . :)

Etheridge: "I'm Mama, or Mom. 'Mom' pretty much covers anybody and everybody."

And this doesn't bother them. And further, they think the children are OK dealing with this.

As a mother, I would be devastated if my child was calling someone else "Mom".

Melissa Etheridge: "The walls and gates that have been held closed by people with narrow minds and fear and hate in their hearts, will burst open. And it has to. When they finally let the 'coloreds' use their bathroom or their washroom, we all didn't die, did we? No. It's the same thing."

And unless Zimbu the Monkey was allowed the be 'Maid of Honor,' AND she promises all subsequent future sperm "donations" will be courtesy of Turkish insane asylums, I shall regard Etheridge's ceremony to be a sham, and her to be a "narrow-minded" hypocrite.

I really don't care what they do, but Etheridge has admitted she was molested when she was a child, yet she denies it has any bearing on her orientation. I have to say, I think it does, and so I agree, I do not think it right for the constant equations to race.

I also don't think it is right for these children to be involved and this nonsense about "everybody's Mom", and they don't realize how screwed up that sounds. I'm not advocating the kids be taken away, but it does bother me that they tell us it is like any normal family when it obviously is not. Actually, I do have kind of a corallary to a situation. My sister-in-law is raising her granddaughter, more or less, and the grandchild started calling her grandmother "Mom". Well, she put a stop to that as kindly and gently and it took a little while, but she realized that was not right, and she should only call her mother (who is involved and there--not absent) "Mom".

It is disturbing, isn't it? People with sexual issues always seem to have some sick thing for the young, like NAMBLA. I think this children's book thing helps them affirm their own issues, sort of like therapy, almost exhibitionistic in a way. It also helps form those young minds to their own way of thinking, like Communist indoctrination, with books like "Heather has Two Mommies." Just another perverse way to "let it all hang out" and try to get the rest of the world to accept their decadent lifestyles.

Ms. Michaels (Mrs. Etheridge?) is actually kind of cute.

I can't tell whether or not she's wearing comfortable shoes.

I'd venture a guess she wasn't any of these things before grabbing on to the coat-tails of a famous lesbian. Ala Ann Heche. Only Ann's story didn't turn out so good!

Heh! My instinct tells me ZIMBU would have enough common sense to reject the offer of 'Maid of Honor' as a bit too PC. Etheridge would then have to go to 'Plan "B": Lassie.

All of this stuff is "bread and circus."

Who gives a flying hoot about any of these morally bankrupt "celebrities." Just fodder for the supermarket tabloids. Within two years, these freaks will get another "tabloid news cycle" with the scandalous story of their inevitable "break-up" that should have every fat housewife from El Centro, CA to Bangor, ME in chocolate-eating glory as they unfurl their "National Enquirer" on their cookie-crumb laden coffee tables during commercial breaks from Oprah.

I also believe in minding one's own business, but these people are giving press conferences, interviews and writing childrens propaganda books. They make it our business with their ceaseless self-promotion, and their effort is devoted to changing public opinion to their liking. Letting them control public discourse on topics of their choice without comment is just ceding the battlefield to them.

Children's books are a highly specialized form of writing. I'm told they are MUCH harder to write than most people know. And these lesbians can get them published just because they ARE lesbians.

Let's see.

Lesbianism is supposed to be an "inate orientation" for women.

However, woman A gets to be the man? So, if she's the man, then why is Woman B attracted to her?

And, if woman B is attracted to her, does that mean that Woman B is really oriented toward men?

Finally, why do they use "appliances" that are shaped like male sex organs if they are attracted to women?

I think Eve has been listening to the Serpent one more time, and she is very, very confused and very, very easily misled.

Legally married or not, the couple seems to be falling into traditional husband and wife roles.
 

So I assume Melissa lays around the house all day in a ratty flannel shirt and asks the kids to pull her finger...

I dont see that as being strange. Not many women anymore ever wear dresses around here either - lesbian or not. Lots of women here now dont even own a dress.

When I first moved in here my next-door neighbors were two young women and a teenage girl about my daughter's age; from time to time the father of the masculine appearing one (who worked as a bodyman in a paint shop) would show up from a trip on the road, visiting his daughter and granddaughter and one night parked his rig in the driveway with the engine idling where he slept.

Later on, he came to live with them for awhile and I got to know him. One day we were talking and he mentioned that the more demure appearing and feminine of the duo was actually, "The pants in the family," I was quite surprised.

Poor Paul, his health took a turn for the worse and just after they had moved into larger quarters where his SS check would help pay the rent, he upped and died on them.

They never quite forgave him and when the girl began to give them grief and did what teenage girls will sometimes do, they just sort of "dehered," they burned the carpet about 2 years ago and don't speak to each other anymore; the girl turns tricks between wrecking various cars the last I heard and I just go about my own business the best I can.

Well, she was very specific about it, and named the person. It is too disgusting to get into details about, but it was not a generic claim. I'm positive that many people who are engaging in homosexual behavior have been similarily molested in their childhood.

I think Cypher, like Ann Heche, went back to men. It was not Etheridge doing the dumping.
