Anna Paquin: “My Bisexuality is Not a Publicity Stunt.”

Remember Anna Paquin’s piece for that “Give a Damn” LGBT awareness thing? Turns out it was legit. Not that I expected it not to be, but I guess a lot of people were giving her flak because they thought that her bisexuality was a fumbling grope for attention, so she spoke out recently to correct those dumb-assed haters:

“I’m not someone who endlessly talks about her personal life for no reason but obviously, as someone who identifies as bisexual, those are issues I really care about — and frankly, I don’t see why everyone doesn’t care about them,” she told Zap2it. “So when I was asked to participate in that PSA, it was just obvious. ‘Well, of course I will’.”

And really, in this day and age, why is this such a big deal? She’s a chick who likes dudes … and chicks. Is there something so wrong with that? I certainly don’t think so. And clearly, there’s a lot of other people in today’s society that doesn’t think so, either. But always, there’s going to be few rotten, worm-infested apples with that brown, smushy stuff under the skin that always ruin the barrel and turn everything else to funk. And you guys? Get over yourselves, for real.

I love me some Anna Paquin, and I don’t give a flaming, flying crap-sack of blue monkeys if she’s into fucking blue monkeys, men, women or Wall Street execs, which is probably the worst of all evils.

  • You know, it could be real bad…. What if Anna were fucking GoodLord? Life on earth would cease to exist, of this I’m sure!

  • I’m kind of on the fence about Blue Monkeys but Anna can have anyone she wants [memememee] publicity stunt or not.

    • … . ok, i know it was a joke but i need to say this on principle: being bi limits your ‘choices’.
      there are a lot (a whole hell of a lot) of gays and lesbians who will not date/sleep with/talk to a bisexual. and there are also a whole hell of a lot of straights who will not date/sleep with/talk to bixexuals.
      we’re the new ‘fags with AIDS’- perverted, degenerate, diseased, promiscuous, lying, cheating. but this time, it comes from both sides.

      • Or maybe it’s just you. I’m bisexual and I’ve never had the kind of problem you’re describing.

      • I haven’t personally had that problem, but I have some friends who have run across that kind of prejudice from both gays and straights. And I have heard a few people express that they would be uncomfortable if those whom they were dating were bisexual — even if they have no issues with gays or bisexuals in any other parts of their lives.

  • How could anyone have thought it was a publicity stunt? She came out for a PSA, not the cover of some tabloid. Nor did she do any interviews regarding her sexuality after the PSA came out.
