The Marvellous Slope Show is back! Season Two of the story of superficial, homophobic lesbians Desiree and Ingrid kicks off with a poignant (but hilarious) episode called ‘Taking Space’

This reminds me of the song: Space, by Pulp. The lyrics of the album version begin:

You said you wanted some space …
Well is this enough for you? …
This is what you’ve waited for …
No dust collecting in the corners …
No cups of tea that got cold before you drank them …
Tonight … travelling at the speed of thought …
We’re going to escape into the stars …

 

Bottoms Up!

The Slope is my new favourite programme. Hell, it’s my new favourite thing, ever. I LOVE IT!

This internet-based ‘sitcom’ tells the story of a lesbian couple called Ingrid and Desiree. They describe themselves as ‘superficial homophobic lesbians’ which, quite frankly, are probably the only kind of lesbians I could entertain getting along with.

Based in Brooklyn’s hipster district, Park Slope, Ingrid and Desiree try and negotiate being a couple in way that isn’t too ‘super Gay’ for bi-curious ‘femme’ Desiree, but that is still meaningful for the more ‘dykey’ Ingrid. So far they have dealt with such important issues as Dan Savage’s It Gets Better video campaign, swinging, buying a strap-on harness, and which one of them is prettiest.All episodes are hilarious and I recommend you watch them NOW!

The Slope is fast becoming my Big Dick Mike Show, the lesbian version. It’s brilliant how thanks to the 21st century, changing cultural values, and the internet, people are presenting sexuality as fluid, and as FUNNY. ‘Sexual Identity is a joke’ said Steve Zeeland.

When people started saying the name ‘Justin Bieber’ my response was ‘who?’  I am too old to know the latest pop superstar craze, to obsess the teenaged girls of the world. But like any global phenomenon, it was impossible to remain ignorant forever.

I still don’t think I have ever heard a song by Bieber, not consciously anyway. But I am now less completely in the dark about who this fresh-faced boy is. I have seen his impersonators on the streets and pavements of our cities, preparing themselves for a life of steadfast metrosexuality.

I am sure their neat polo necks and wispy haircuts will outlive their love of the music.

But there is a new, and for this old trollop, far more interesting aspect to the Bieber fever. ‘Biebians’ – girls who look like Justin Bieber, either accidentally or on purpose. And who do so with such startlingly pretty androgyny that I just want to look and look until my eyes go funny and I feel like I have a teenage crush all over again. (I wish I had had more teenage crushes on girls. Adolescence has to be the best time for sexual experimentation, surely. But it’s too late, baby).

I don’t know if ‘Biebians’ are actually lesbians. Or if the ones who send in their photos to this marvellous fangirl gender-bending website are actually lesbians. It doesn’t matter. What I like is how a pretty boy pop star has garnered the imagination of young women fans and encouraged them to ‘come out’ as androgynous, beautiful, and, even in emulating their hero, so very much themselves.

I mean, you get it right?
