so, having seen Queer Eye for the Straight Guy this weekend, I have to say I'd rather watch Dyke Eye for the Straight Girl. not that that show exists or ever will. (try as I might, I can't come up with a rhyming title for that hypothetical show, except "Dyke Flash for the Straight Gash" which uh. NO.)

i declare this week to be minimalist week.

also, over the course of the weekend we found three giant horseflies (i assume that they are) in our apartment. this is foul. i wonder where they are coming in or what they came in on. we don't have a gross apartment where food sits around, so i am really upset about this.

None of them bit anyone, but they were HUGE, and disgusting. I ended up sleeping on the couch on saturday because of the first one. Well, fitfully napping, becauase I couldn't sleep because I constantly thought something was touching me. Bleah. If I go home in the morning and there is another one, I'm calling the rental office to arrange some bug killin'.

Down with the nasty flies. Anything that pukes on itself regulalrly, has multiple legs, and makes strange buzzing noises should be banned from the home.

The joys of apartment/condo/rowhouse/duplex living... just you keeping your space clean from infestations is no guarantee you will not get creepy crawlie visitors. Is there a polite way to check with your neighbors?

that was one of my first thoughts when this started. neighbors must be gross somehow... i mentioned it to the rental office, it is their job to look for a problem...

So as Queer Eye takes aesthetically-challenged heterosexual man and gives them a sense of style, Dyke Eye will... ?

well, i was thinking that they would take a wussy straight girl and teach her to wear comfortable shoes and play rugby, but that would be sexist and nurture unhealthy stereotypes about lesbians. *shrug*

Well I think Queer Eye will be doing its share to be sexist (straight men are slovenly with no sense of style and totally hopeless without a woman or a queer man) and nuture unhealthy stereotypes (pick one of many about gay men that the show features prominently).

In terms of wussy straight women getting smacked upside the head with a dose of reality, one must consider Oprah and the Lifetime Channel... granted I don't see much of either, but my impression is that they are full of, "Get a life, sistah! Leave that man!" and "I am woman, hear me roar!" kind of stuff.

oprah: i dunno, never watched it.

lifetime: ugh. the "all victim" channel? pfeh. lifetime has yet to impress me.

From datalounge.com--I'd include the link but the thread becomes misogynistic pretty quickly after this initial posting:

BRAVO'S The Lesbian Eye for the Straight Woman
by: anonymous
Five lesbian women (an abuse counselor, an academic feminist, a golf champion, a wiccan guide, and a vegan chef) help a straight woman end an abusive relationship and get her life back on track with a healthy diet, exercise, pagan earth worship and a dose of feminist philosophy.
