So it's been reported in the Daily Star, that Kerry Katona has
finally done what we've all been willing her to do for years and
given up men.
First there was porky Brian from Westlife, who apparently
cheated on Kerry on his stag do with a stripper (a forgivable
offence in my eyes, they weren't even married then! But that's by
the by…). Brian then went off with beautiful Delta Goodrem (ouch
that's gotta hurt Kezza)! Then there was "our Mark" (must be said
in strong Warrington accent) who rinsed Kerry for all her money to
set up a fruit machine company and buy Lamborghinis. By all
accounts this was quite the unseemly relationship that ended quite
shortly after 'Coke on camera' gate happened. This was where Kerry
was caught on a secretly installed camera taking a cheeky bump of
chang in her own loo.
Kerry blamed her spiralling drug addiction on "our Mark" and
dumped him via tabloid paper. I might try that sometime, but could
probably only afford a small box amongst the classifieds. There
have been a few others since but now Kerry is saying, nay
threatening, to turn to women.
Now don't get me wrong, KK is not an unattractive woman. She has
her faults, as we all do. But the point is, if I bumped into Kerry,
because, you know, we hang out at all the same places, and she
asked me out, I would definitely say no. OK well I believe you
never really know until you're put into the situation but I would
probably maybe say no. The point being that, I want to be with a
woman who identifies as a lesbian because she loves women, not
because she hates men.
I do believe that some lesbians do hate men, whether it's
political, from bad experiences or they just think they stink a bit
and are hairy. Saying this, it shouldn't be the sole reason for why
you are with another woman and being with someone because you're
running away from anything is never going to lead to healthy
happiness is it?
On a more positive note, the majority of lesbos I know
love men. OK, let's not go overboard, but they like them just fine.
I feel like I'm wading into murky dangerous gender water here so
I'll stop thinking of reasons why I like men (they are great when
you're moving house! Opening jars!) and leave that open.
Kerry also set off a few alarm bells here at DIVA HQ (- and
where, incidentally we all have long hair) as she was quoted in the
Daily Star as saying that her short hair was perhaps a sign that
she should turn to the darkside. She also said: "I feel like a
dyke. If I cross my arms I actually look like a lesbian." Er,
what's that Kerry? I don't think when victims of homophobic abuse
during the wars fought to reclaim the term 'dyke' it was for you to
bandy around at FHM parties. The feeling I felt when I read this
quote felt similar to when someone starts to slag off your mum,
it's OK for you to do it, NOT for them.
Anyway, in summary I think it's a great idea for Kezza to take
some time to concentrate on herself again. I was an avid fan of her
last series 'The Next Chapter' and her children and her family set
up is incredible. Such an evidently caring person shouldn't waste
themselves on bad-egg men but also shouldn't treat women as a
consolation prize, because that's not what we are.
