Rachel Maddow, “Dyke”
I really like Rachel Maddow, and the fact that she’s a lesbian is neither here nor there, as well as common knowledge. But did you know she was a “dyke”, as well? It’s true.
The photo below is of a 21 year old Maddow being interviewed by Out magazine after being the first “out” lesbian to win a frickin’ Rhodes Scholarship! (member when that stuff used to matter?)
In the interview Maddow says, among other things, “…blah blah blah, so much of my political involvement is tied up in being a dyke.” Well. It’s so retro to remember back when people had to be defensive about their sexual orientation….takes me back.
She’s always seemed really smart and I enjoy her new show (even though it’s a little boring), so I guess I shoulda known she was all educated up and whatnot— but Damn! Stanford Grad, Masters from Oxford in Political Science, Rhodes fucking Scholar, that’s Rachel Maddow. (Just by comparison and never wanting to miss a chance to piss on Sarah Palin, the prom queen attended five colleges is six years before finally obtaining her B.A. in journalism from the Idaho State…. And oh yeah, she wants to run the country.)
Rachel Maddow— hot educated lesbian, once geeky dyke.
