Lesbosphere expands

We all know about the blogosphere. Well welcome to the lesbosphere. Seems Melissa Etheridge’s partner and new mom Tammy Etheridge (formerly Tammy Lynn Michaels of “Popular” fame) has her very own blog. Much like fellow celebrity blogger Rosie O’Donnell, Tammy writes her posts largely in prose* verse. Geez, what is it with lesbians and poetry blogs? Her cover was blown yesterday when Perez Hilton publicized her site. While not completely anonymous (she writes about fame, her contempt for the paparazzi , being gay, her pregnancy, Melissa’s cancer), Tammy refers to the singer only as “Honey.” It can be an interesting read, but I fear now that her anonymity has been lost in such a big way (seriously, that dude gets crazy traffic), she won’t be as open and free with her thoughts. But then, if you don’t want to share your thoughts with the world, why start a blog?

*Indeed, as it was so astutely pointed out, "prose" was the wrong word to use here. Very good, you passed the vocabulary portion of this quiz. Next up, chemistry!

just so you know, prose is the opposite of poetry. it's regular writing.
