The piece is called “An Actual Lesbian Girlfriend,” Or, Why You Should Never Listen to Dan Savage About Bisexuality, and here’s the teaser:
In a recent column, Savage compiled a sampler of questions from students on his recent tour of universities. And among them was this question:
“I’m a lesbian, and my girlfriend is bisexual and wants to have a three-way with a man. This makes me nervous. What should I do?”
“Get yourself a refillable Xanax prescription, or get yourself an actual lesbian girlfriend.”
This advice is so irresponsible it made my jaw drop. But because the advice is so terse — and because the snark- to- content ratio is so disproportionately high — it’s a little hard to tease out its actual content, and the actual intent behind it. Near as I can tell, though, it seems to be one of the following three things. All of which suck.
To find out what I think Savage might be trying to say here — and why I think it sucks — read the rest of the piece. Enjoy!
