Jade Ellis, a contestant on UK X Factor is a lesbian. I know… totally irrelevant in a singing competition, but the papers still seem totally amazed by the fact someone can be gay.
This was the headline in The Daily Mirror:
“We are a very happy little family”: X Factor hopeful Jade Ellis raises young daughter with gay lover.
Why is that news?! More to the point is it just me, or does “gay lover” sound totally invalidating of their relationship?! It’s her partner - they’ve been together for like 6+ years, it’s not just a fucking “lover” that she shags and leaves.
I dunno, I find it so irritating, so invalidating and so fucking stupid that the fact she is raising a daughter is worthy of the news… why?! So are loads of other people. eugh…
