Ellen and Portia

Ellen and Portia

Can I just say that the media coverage for Ellen and Portia's wedding is...cautious? Especially in People Magazine. Other wedding covers of married celebrities show couples in a loving embrace. These two look like two friends enjoying a day of shopping (overly dressed). Or maybe it's a toothpaste commercial. Dunno.

And after hearing radio hosts (and others) deal with their discomfort by framing this event in a hetero-normative male-pleasure-centered way, I can see that we have a long way to go.

Anyhoodles, congratulations to the happy couple. May it last forever...
