Tila loves Dani


Well, here it is...my post about A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila! I can't believe that I watch this show number one, but number two, I have to post about it because Dani STILL HAS A SHOT AT LOVE! I can't believe it! Our cute little butch (or futch as she calls herself) may be Tila's girl! I can't wait to find out. Okay, so for those of you who are fortunate enough not to watch this show--really, don't do it, there are all kinds of things wrong with this show: a cute Vietnamese woman (who "emigrated" here from Singapore with her family when she was 1) who has become famous because of her real and staged playboy shots on her myspace page and who alludes frequently to how horrible her childhood is.  The shorter story, sans feminist analysis, is that Tila is bisexual and has had 32 love interests; 16 women and 16 men. I know this sounds cliche, but I didn't really notice the guys.  However, most of the women were F-E-M-M-E, like super femme and not even queer. If you read the background bios on them (yeah, I did that), most of them just want to "try" being with a woman. Not Dani.  She's gay, she likes women, she's dated women, she's a firefighter, AND she's butch. Did I say that? That's really the most important part (I mean, I like the firefighter part as well, a lot).  I can't believe that there is a lesbian couple on television that is butch/femme.  Of all the queer shows on television, including LOGO, mtv has the one with a butch/femme couple.  For this, I will definitely be watching the finale...and then, back to my queer black feminist analysis.
