Clea DuVall “lesbian kisses” caught on camera

But do we care and is this news, asks Lily Pritchard

Yesterday, the Daily Mail published an article titled 'Argo star Clea DuVall shares lesbian kisses with female friend during day of passion in the park'.

 

Firstly, what on earth are "lesbian kisses"? Is there a different technique? The unnecessary and redundant title sparked anguish resulting in hundreds of angry comments accusing the Daily Mail of 'not being able to treat people as people' and promoting sexual inequality.

 

Secondly, why is this needless invasion of privacy still happening? Why can't a woman kiss her "friend" (although she looks like more than a friend to me…) in public with out having an abundance of creepy photos put online? DuVall certainly doesn't court the press in any way that could be construed as inviting this kind of treatment and it is sad that in this day and age, a simple PDA becomes national news content.

 

Thirdly, why does anyone need to 'make a statement' on their sexuality? The actress had her first on screen lesbian kiss in But I'm A Cheerleader (1999) and has also played gay characters in Carnivale, Ghosts Of Mars, Saving Grace and most recently American Horror Story: Asylum.

 

DuVall said herself on the Vulture website last October: "You look at how many gay characters are on television and in movies and actors just aren't afraid to do that any more. I think because there are more of those roles, the fear and the novelty of it have kind of gone away."

 

Ironically, the Daily Mail used this quote in their article, proving that, for them, the novelty is very much still there.
