Jane Lynch: America Isn’t Ready For Gays To Play Straight. And It Might Never Be

I don’t know when or if [gay actors in leading roles] will ever happen. I think because since most of the world is straight — and maybe we'll get to a place where this will happen — most of the world is straight and we want the audience to project their hopes and dreams for love and romance onto those actors. And if it’s not in some way possible, maybe never probably, in their mind that it could never happen, then they're not going to do it. You know, most people are straight, and I think that’s probably why…. This is a business of projection and desiring people from afar. And watching people go through trials and tribulations, so there has got to be some truth to it, in terms of, "I could see myself with that person." Because the leading man and lady are the person we want them to fall in love with, and most of the audience is straight. So for right now, we can only use straight actors.

—Jane Lynch, who doesn't think audiences are ready for gay characters playing straight lead roles, evidently disagrees with Will & Grace creator Max Mutchnick, who doesn't "think the audience is as homophobic as the media" — and Jane Lynch — "would have us believe." [via AE]

Jane Lynch Presents Her At Home, All-Male Cheering Squad

Jl2

The Glee star shows up in the pages of More magazine with her cheerleaders, who are at least wearing matching uniforms.

Lynch gets reflective in the accompanying interview, but still manages to throw in a joke. She had this to say about her partner who she married this past summer: "I'd never dated anyone that I wanted to marry. I didn't think it was going to be out there for me. But the minute we were married, I felt the difference. I felt like I am no longer alone." She added, "I got married – and I married a doctor!"

Gov. Lynch: ‘Change’ NOM can deceive in

New Hampshire’s Gov. Lynch made it clear from beginning to end that he personally favored civil unions over marriage equality. But he also made it clear that he respected the legislative process and his role in governing *all* of the people. And he never said he wouldn’t sign a bill. So after extra religious protections were added to the state’s legislatively-approved marriage bill — protections designed to appease people like the National Organization For Marriage and ones that actually dismayed many equality activists, who found them unnecessary — Gov. Lynch signed it into law. There is absolutely no disconnect between what he said and what he did!

But NOM and their NH allies at Cornerstone Policy Research refuse to think critically about this matter, instead continuing to make it sound like Lynch’s willingness to respect the legislative process equates to some great betrayal:

Looking beyond same-sex marriage: The whole ad is election year politics at its worst. If you look at the individual quotes, you will see that all the juxtapositions are misleading, false, or completely anti-intellectual. For instance the parole issue (conveniently positioned right before the gay part): The ad compares a statement from Lynch’s spokesperson about the bill then compares it with one parole board members’ comments about one specific parolee. Plus NOM/Cornerstone completely overlook that the bill in question, SB 500, had MAJOR bipartisan support, passed the state House 256-57, was supported by onetime state Attorney General and current GOP candidate for U.S. Senate Kelly Ayotte, was endorsed by the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police and Victim Advocates, and was crafted after detailed examination from a whole host of (nonpartisan) law enforcement professionals. In fact, looking over the record as we just did, the controversy seemed primarily drummed by the state’s conservative newspaper The Union-Leader — incidentally the very paper that NOM/Cornerstone uses to back all of their claims!

Oh, and if the reductive smears weren’t enough: NOM/Cornerstone can’t even get basic dates right:

WRONG:

201010041522

ACTUAL:

201010041523

So perhaps you kids should save your “change,” NOM/Cornerstone. Then maybe then these shots will stop looking so cheap.

NOM Spending $450,000 To Attack NH Gov Lynch On Gay Marriage

Lynchad

The National Organization for Marriage threw itself even further into New Hampshire's gubernatorial race today by releasing an ad attacking Governor John Lynch for signing gay marriage into law.

The commercial and radio campaign, called "He's Changed" and put out with the "family friendly" group Cornerstone Action, takes aim at Lynch for switching gears on a range of issues, such as prisoner parole terms and taxes, and, yes, gay marriage, which Lynch said he opposed in a debate four years ago.

NOM leader Brian Brown released a statement in conjunction with the ad's release, and said, "When John Lynch lied and betrayed the voters of New Hampshire by signing the same-sex marriage bill NOM vowed to hold him accountable. Unlike John Lynch, we keep our promises."

The Lynch campaign insisted the governor hasn't changed and described him as a "thoughtful" politician who listens to his constituents: "He listens to people as he did on the marriage law. He's provided the steady leadership to get us through these tough times."

NOM and Cornerstone Action's campaign cost them 0,000. That's in addition to the 0,000 NOM spent earlier this year attacking Lynch. All that money may have been a complete waste, because NOM's preferred candidate, Republican John Stephen, trails Lynch by about seventeen points.
