Netflix just got the entire show ‘The L Word.’ Many lesbians swear by this show and I’ve been on dates with women who give me this mortified look, as if I’ve just kicked their three-legged puppy, when I tell them that:
a.) I’ve never actually watched the show and
b.) Of what I HAVE seen I didn’t find any of the main characters particularly attractive enough for me to want to watch it.
When I was 17 and “just curious” I searched some clips of this show on Youtube. Watched some. Thought it looked terrible (although of course, the sex scenes fascinated my young, naive, totally gay-but-in-denial mind.)
But I decided to actually watch it today. I started episode 1, season 1.
Not that bad but not great? What’s the big deal? The second Shane got naked I felt this near uncontrollable urge to just switch to an Xbox game instead. How is she the most popular one? She’s too skinny, really pale, dresses like a creepy John Lennon or Michael Jackson, and will someone please explain to me how she is supposed to be a hair stylist when her own hair looks unwashed and unkempt?
It boggles my mind that Shane is the most popular character on the show. I’ve only made it through one episode and Dana is already my favorite if only because she’s a massive bitch to Shane. (I’m also fond of Tina, I guess, but only because she’s adorable and not mind-numbingly obnoxious.)
Like goddamn, woman. It looks like you took a flattening iron to that rat’s nest you call your hair.
So maybe this means that I need to have my lesbian card revoked, but if I have to think Shane is attractive (or any of them, for that matter) to keep my card then I don’t even want it.
I really don’t know if I can keep going.
I’d also expect a lot of angry comments in my comment section if I ever got any comments but since I don’t I’m not too worried about it.
