My Weekend Crush

Amber Heard is proof that God loves lesbians and wants us to be happy. I mean it, just look at her. Look at her. Truth be told, I tried to resist her charms for the longest time. She’s kind of too perfect. I tend to prefer a little imperfection – a rough edge, a quirky tick. Something that hints that this specimen of humanity is indeed all-too human. But Amber, Amber is the dream. She is the ideal. Sometimes, when I see pictures of her on the red carpet, I can’t believe they’re real. Those artists in the Hollywood dream factory couldn’t have drawn her up better themselves.

But aside from being just gorgeous wrapped in ridiculously gorgeous, she is that even rarer of creatures – a Hollywood starlet who is out and proud. I can’t really over emphasize the importance of this, particularly in light of all the talk recently about on-screen outing. No one had to out Amber. She did it herself. She did it before she was famous, before she was on the billboards. She showed up at events, arm-in-arm with her beautiful girlfriend and called her as much. She goes to protests. She speaks for equality. No one has to whisper and wonder. She shouts it with pride herself. Her openness about her sexuality is almost more beautiful than she is. Almost. Just imagine if everyone in Hollywood felt the same way. She is that daily reminder that we are everywhere, and sometimes – just sometimes – we even look like Amber Heard. Happy weekend, all.

Let me tell all you girls something it seems as gay men get all the attention and it is always women that are looked down on to.
I am very happy what she is doing we have the same right as all those others to be happy!
And all that myth that women are dirty creatures well let me tell u something most of us are the cleanest beings on earth!xoxoxo

She's cute and I'm glad she's out and proud, and I pride myself in saying that I don't have types, but give me a dark eyed sultry beauty anyday - like Amber's gf for ezample.

dark eyed girls are my thing too! especially if they are butch, or tomboyish, then oh man :p amber heard is pretty gorgeous tho, but all that blonde perfection scares me a bit. :p

Unfortunately Amber has jumped on the Bandwagon that ALL Hollywood actresses jump on, she's now Bisexual. So much for being out and proud. She gave am interview with Esquire magazine and she specifically states that she is NOT a lesbian.

Isn't it pathetic that the women in Hollywood who claim to be bisexual ar never seen with a lesbian and always Married to a man?

So if Amber is now bisexual, then it's only a matter of time before she kicks Taysa to the curb, or Taysa dumps Amer, because lesbians don't usually go for the Bisexuality myth (their is NO 3rd sexual orientation, you know).

Amber and Tasya have broken up. Amber was recently photographed being kissed by Francesca Gregorini in the street.

I actually find Amber to be incredibly dull. Yes, she's beautiful. But unfortunately dull.

Tasya on the other hand, damn that woman is HOT!

Well I'm glad she's out there and flying the flag anyway. She is very lovely looking too, which can't hurt when trying to gain acceptance in the wider world, outside our little web bubble. People are far more willing to accept something they don't like when it's delivered ina beautiful package right?

Regardless of what you think of this person or how you rate her 'beauty' (which is a shallow objectifying concept anyhow) or the fact that she chooses not to label her sexuality, she has stood up in front of the public/media/press and proudly asserted that she is in a relationship with a woman (which furthermore was successful for years).

The courage it takes for someone in her position and profession to speak out in a positive way for the LGBT community against the risk of losing jobs and destroying her career in an already impossibly competitive and utterly sexist industry that does not care for the opinions of women is incredible and honourable. Not to mention the amount of confused teenage girls she helped feel better about themselves.

I'm not an Amber Heard fan, I just think this blog is well written and funny, but after reading some of the comments here I had to post. You guys spend so much time moaning that no one is fighting your corner and yet when someone stands up to be visible and proud you tear them down by commenting on whether they are pretty or will go back to men. What she did is commendable, and without people like her, and the people that went before her, it would be a lot harder for you to stand up for your rights.

Agree with the last comment. She may not be perfectly beautiful in everyone's eyes but she is beautiful to many. She's out and proud, and so what if she's bisexual? People are bisexual sometimes and there's nothing wrong with that - Amber has definitely demonstrated that by her freedom to love and date whoever she wants to!
