“Gossip Girls” share more than gossip

Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, from The CW’s Gossip Girl, appeared alongside their costars for a Rolling Stone photo shoot. There’s even this cute quote, which Lively tells Rolling Stone, accompanying the photos: “My favorite was the first one we did with the ice cream cones.” 

"My favorite was the first one we did with the ice cream cones," Lively tells Rolling Stone.

Blake Lively and Leighton Meester know how to share.

Paradox: Why is lesbianism (or faux lesbianism) both eroticized and condemned by society?

  1. yeah this is a bit crazy.
    These photos are erotic and lesbianish, why arent people freaking out? but when lindsey lohan is seen holding hands with a girl on the street the paparazzi goes crazy. Apparently holding hands is not okay but licking the same ice cream cone is?
    Its a matter of what people see as real lesbianism and what people see as fake lesbianism. Someone once told me a story about 2 girls making out at a bar, all the guys were really into it until they realized that these girls really were interested in each other and not in the guys.
    This is just erotic, and fun its not real lesbianism thats why people like it- guys like it. it turns them on, but if there were any indication that these girls actually were interested in each other more than they were interested in men that would be a problem.
    We live in a screwed up world what can i say….

  2. Who really cares about them?

    But anyway, men like lipstick lesbians, and that’s okay. You just can’t step out of your gender norms, that’s all. You get into trouble when you do things like that. That’s why lesbianism is celebrated, fetishized, but also denounced.
