Sheila has a magnificent write-up of a film called Neo Ned. One of the actors is Gabrielle Union. I have a completely irrational reaction to Gabrielle Union and I don’t really understand it, and I guess that’s why I’m writing this.
I would totally do Gabrielle Union. I don’t know what it is about her, but my brain short-circuits when I see pictures of her and I just want to take off all her clothes and have at it. I have never had a reaction to a girl like I do Gabrielle Union. In fact, I’ve never had any reaction to any girl. I am probably the most heterosexual girl you will ever meet in your life, as anyone reading this blog can attest (see my many posts in praise of men and their packages.)
I am not sure I buy the line that sexuality is fluid. I think we all have a set point where we’re comfortable. Maybe you won’t sit next to a guy a movie theatre. Maybe you are so gay even gay people look at you and say “wow”. I think we all have a point where we’re comfortable. Mine is way over on the guy side. But I have such a massive, unexpected crush that it makes me wonder how fluid that line really is.
I’m not sure what I’m reacting to. I have never met Gabrielle Union, so I can’t say this is even a real thing. Girls in general don’t interest me; I have female friends, of course, but by and large, I live in a male universe; I listen to men, I like to be around them. They smell good and I love their life-giving heat and I can’t see myself ever dating a girl. I’ve never looked at a girl and had anything approaching a sexual thought. Then I saw Gabrielle Union in Bring It On and since then, I’m completely rapt whenever she’s on the screen.
It’s amusing to note a girl-crush in myself. I don’t get it at all. But I know if there’s a movie with Gabrielle Union, or a magazine cover with her on it, I’m there.
