Bless Jose for listening to me (or at least being quiet?????) when I start going on a rant about fandom but like I really refuse to believe that seeing queer “where there is none” is because there really is a complete lack of the possibility and more about whether or not queer identities are openly acknowledged in the universe or by the creators.

Lady Gaga watch: A king with no crown

April 18, 2011

Apparently my phone will let me make posts like this. We’ll see what happens. It’s time to write about Lady Gaga again. And I’m not just doing it because the top search that leads to my blog is “latex nun.” Obviously Lady Gaga’s new single “Judas” is many things- controversial, highly dancable, and borderline genius to name a few. The lyrics can either be read as irreverent, sacreligious, or nonsensical. But the point is: I selfishly claim this song as…
