Bossy’s lived a long life and she’s got lots of friends
Just who are her favorites? Well that would depend…
But the one thing that makes her smile wider each day
Is that fun-loving group from worldwide: Bossy’s Gays.
Homosexuals make the earth spin that much straighter
There is no Bossy love for small close-minded haters
Queens. Fags. Perry Comos. Poofs. How about Queers?
Bossy’s not sure the Politically Correct term, she fears.
But that doesn’t mean her heart’s not filled with Pride
‘Cause if you took Bossy’s Gays and lined them up side by side
You’d find style, wit, snark, sensitivity, and fun
(And a pitcher of mixed drinks that will leave you undone.)
Bossy’s wish for her friends: An expressed life with no closets
Same-sex marriage, kids, discos, hardwood floors, (no composites)
Holding hands, loving freely, total acceptance, sunny days
This and more, her desire for that group: Bossy’s Gays.
Soundtrack For Bossy’s Gays:

I have always loved that song. Have you ever heard the Ramones cover that? That photo is the exact color of my awning (it was there when I moved in)
Tricia saysOctober 5, 2007 at 11:49 am
I’m so glad vuboq offered smooches. I just didn’t know what to think… And, now “you need me” is stuck in me head. Is that Olive Oyl?
The Domestic Goddess saysOctober 5, 2007 at 11:58 am
That’s Olive Oyl, from Popeye! I’m ashamed to say I’ve seen it.
The perfect song, in my mind, for this post.
Trop saysOctober 5, 2007 at 12:06 pm
De-Lurking to say hello and let you know that despite living in Jerry Falwell’s town (though dead, he’s immortalized here) I have all the things you wish for us (except the dog, disco, and TOTAL acceptance). Life is good in East Jesus, VA.

Neil saysOctober 5, 2007 at 12:49 pm
If I didn’t find women so hot, I would be proud to be gay. What’s the big deal? Some people like Chinese food, others corned beef sandwiches. What else is new? And the more fabulous guys who are gay, the less competition for us dorky straight guys. It’s a win-win situation.
madmad saysOctober 5, 2007 at 12:53 pm
No composites! That’s possibly the best ever rhyme. Such genius! We should have to pay to click on you. Ah well; and as for content-content: amen!
Les~ saysOctober 5, 2007 at 1:03 pm
Bravo! [insert golf clap here]
MinivanBohemian saysOctober 5, 2007 at 1:08 pm
Bossy has her own gays?
Wanh! I want some, too!
Life as a suburban housewife is killing me. Life was so much more fun in art school… Must have been the gays. Sigh.
Nilsa S. saysOctober 5, 2007 at 1:17 pm
You know the saying Blonds Have More Fun? That’s so 20th century! I swear, the 21st century’s tune should be Gays Have More Fun!
Signed, Your Favorite Straight Reader with Lots of Gay Friends and Family!
mothergoosemouse saysOctober 5, 2007 at 1:19 pm
I’m sure there must be gays here in Colorado, but they’re even more rare than Jews.
Howard saysOctober 5, 2007 at 1:26 pm
Bossy – that was simply amazing. Truly! I actually got a little choked up. You’re the greatest..
MotherGooseMouse – We’re here. We’re queer. But usually in Denver, Aspen or Vail. 🙂
blackbird saysOctober 5, 2007 at 1:46 pm
Bossy is so smart with the embedding of the music and all. And the gay thing. That’s cool too…
Adorable Girlfriend saysOctober 5, 2007 at 2:17 pm
Well if this doesn’t get my gay blog husband Res Publica over here toot sweet, I don’t know what will.
He’s been in the proverbial blogging closet for a while now.
Res, Res!? It’s time to come play at Bossy’s and represent the RoD well.
Such a silly boy.
Mrs. G. saysOctober 5, 2007 at 2:27 pm
bossy, here I am at my desk feeling all, happy and weepy. I’m supposed to be grading papers and making lesson plans, but no…I’m at my favorite blog instead. bossy, I just can’t quit you.
Miss Britt saysOctober 5, 2007 at 2:27 pm
Look, no offense. And I don’t want to be a hater.
But Bossy’s Gays aint got nothin’ on Britt’s Gays.
rb saysOctober 5, 2007 at 2:30 pm
I don’t know what I’d do without my gay boyfriends…. I’m glad I have a straight boyfriend or two because I do need some of that in the bedroom, but the gay boyfriends are SO much more fun everywhere else.
T.G. I live in San Francisco. Cocktails, anyone?
Laura Owen Chalfont, PA saysOctober 5, 2007 at 2:36 pm
And Be-Yotch-iful’s Gays are so handsome and nice
They love all the finest things and don’t care about price
Ahh, Be-Yotch-ful’s Gays love good food and wine
And if they get pissed at you, they curtly say: “Fine!”
Most of them dwell in New Hope, Philadelphia and New York City
And what they love most about her is she’s so darn, stinkin’ pretty!
MammaLoves saysOctober 5, 2007 at 2:50 pm
Neil, that’s the best reasoning ever.
BOSSY, right on sistah friend!
Avitable saysOctober 5, 2007 at 2:54 pm
Very nice. Now only if someone would do a post about their very own naked gorilla men.
Moi saysOctober 5, 2007 at 3:00 pm
Bossy is so sweet. I lurve her (and, by proxy, her gays).
I could have sworn it was going to be Gloria Gaynor on the soundtrack. I like your choice though!
Noelle saysOctober 5, 2007 at 3:03 pm
I wish I was gay right now.
Gloria saysOctober 5, 2007 at 3:13 pm
I’m hearing you.
Never found problem with gays. Several of my closest, most loyal friends are gays. I’m all for their freedom. Woo hoo.
Kelly Stern saysOctober 5, 2007 at 3:20 pm
awwww… you are too sweet… and know that your gays love you right back and wish there were more folks like you in the world… thank you soo much and glad you liked the video… would love to share a mimosa or wine or beer or cosmo or mojito or any other drink with you anytime… smooches!!
Melissa in NZ saysOctober 5, 2007 at 3:30 pm
Aww, that’s lovely, Bossy!
Jason saysOctober 5, 2007 at 3:36 pm
Bossy’s Gays LOVE Bossy!
She should be crowned Queen of Thunderdome.
Lara saysOctober 5, 2007 at 3:37 pm
Bossy, you are so very cool! I’m glad that there are accepting, open-minded people like you in the world and wish there were more! I do not understand why anyone would have an objection to gay marriage: two people that love each other and want to show their commitment to each other, legally, financially, etc. How is that bad for anyone? I think that the conservatives just don’t like it because then they can’t call gays “promiscuous” anymore if they’re allowed to be married. And gays make great parents, too – those kids are always dressed to the nines and have the best home-made lunches in the class!
Sarcasm Abounds saysOctober 5, 2007 at 3:39 pm
Style, wit, snark, sensitivity, and fun?
Upon self examination, I find I have all of that except style. *tucks in shirt*
I guess I’m still straight then.
P.S. Nilsa, you must not be looking very hard. They are well represented in Denver, anyway.
Oh, The Joys saysOctober 5, 2007 at 3:43 pm
bossy has the nicest gays. (Except for Kevin Charnas. He is mine.)
p.s. [you are feeling sleepy. you are getting HYPNOTIZZZED. you are teaching jessica to embed sound in her blog…]
Phoenix saysOctober 5, 2007 at 4:02 pm
I don’t know what I’d do without my gay boyfriends. My life would be very boring, that’s for sure.
gina saysOctober 5, 2007 at 4:19 pm
Oh yes she did!
We (as in everyone, me and gays alike) love Bossy.
Mrs. Chicky saysOctober 5, 2007 at 4:40 pm
Sigh. I miss having gays. It’s been years. I don’t think I’m fabulous enough to have gays anymore. That and I’m always puking, fer chrissake.
NGG/ Jo saysOctober 5, 2007 at 4:59 pm
Bossy Rocks, which is why she’ll be missed so much by everyone who was on the grrl genius blog.
Bossy, I added you to the ‘my favorites’ list on my (own) blog. I hope that’s ok?
soNOTcool saysOctober 5, 2007 at 5:11 pm
Wah! I have NO gays. You can’t imagine how badly I pine for a gay best friend, especially when I am trying to figure out what to wear.
davido saysOctober 5, 2007 at 5:11 pm
I’m all for gay marriage and kids, and OK with saying no to composite flooring, but DISCO? Have you no decency!?!?
sue saysOctober 5, 2007 at 5:28 pm
You know, I think it’s going to be fun in Hell, since apparently all the gays AND ANYONE WHO LOVES THEM will be going there. See you on the flip side, everyone!
Jennifer saysOctober 5, 2007 at 5:52 pm
I also love my rainbow posse and wish they still lived next door to me. And I hope some day in the VERY NEAR future, they won’t have to fight for anything.
On a different note, alphabetizing-challenged Bossy, your pooch has a primo spot in my blogging mental real estate. It wasn’t planned, but Stella splayed out in the center.
Irish Goddess saysOctober 5, 2007 at 6:57 pm
I am a goddess, and as such, I bestow upon you the title of Queen, for this post.
Scott-O-Rama saysOctober 5, 2007 at 7:43 pm
Awww… First I’m made the Official Gay Snarky Blogger of The Stephanie Miller show, and now this. How could my life possibly be any better.
(I am one of your gays, right?)
Deb saysOctober 5, 2007 at 7:56 pm
Closets/no composites= fucking nailed-it-on-infinite-heads genius.
We do pay Bossy. We click an ad add on our way out. RIGHT? I thought so.
Cholla Chick saysOctober 5, 2007 at 8:13 pm
Amen. I completely agree. Where would I be without my gay pals? Completely without any fashion sense that’s for sure. 🙂 You go girl.
RcktMan saysOctober 5, 2007 at 8:24 pm
I hope I’m one of your esteemed gays! I’d be proud to have you as one of my straights! 🙂
annie saysOctober 5, 2007 at 9:56 pm
“Homosexuals make the earth spin that much straighter”
Shit, that’s FUNNY! Ha-ha!
Steve saysOctober 5, 2007 at 10:26 pm
Thanks, hun! And give it time. You’ll find I’m the coolest out of the whole lot 😛
(You have permission to puke now)
painted maypole saysOctober 5, 2007 at 11:32 pm
this is awesome! 🙂
Suebob saysOctober 5, 2007 at 11:54 pm
Dang, what a buncha tolerant commenters. Where are all the trolls? They must be busy telling formula-feeding mothers that they are poisoning their children or something…
And Oh the Joys? Kevin Charnas is all mine, beyotch.
Jason saysOctober 6, 2007 at 3:11 am
And this makes reason number 4,902 that I love Bossy.
David saysOctober 6, 2007 at 10:12 am
Theresa saysOctober 6, 2007 at 11:55 am
Good for you! Bossy’s gays are a lucky bunch. And you’re right about the world spinning so much straighter.
Manic Mommy saysOctober 6, 2007 at 12:51 pm
I have no gay boyfriends right now and my life is a little less colorful because of it.
No composites – priceless!
Mrs. Davis saysOctober 6, 2007 at 5:36 pm
I miss my gays. This makes me miss them more.
Criquette saysOctober 6, 2007 at 6:19 pm
Here, here! To the fundamental human right to love and celebrate that love publicly and legally. Cheers!
Briget saysOctober 6, 2007 at 8:16 pm
I’ve been lurking lo this long time, but had to come out *har* to say that I love this post. (And many, many others). Me? I’m straight, but a Fag Hag from Waaaay back (we’re talking early 80’s, here). These days, now that I’m addicted to The Food Channel, I look for Ina’s Boyz. She cooks so good, and her friends are Sew Gay. I love em. Love her. Love the fact that we can all celebrate Life with good food, instead of judgement.
*Pardon* I’m off my soapbox now. Going back into hiding…
Nin saysOctober 6, 2007 at 9:17 pm
I don’t get it at all why on earth some people should think that others don’t deserve the same rights? It’s so stupid and backward thinking.
The fact that we allow gay marriages in the UK makes me proud to be british 🙂
FENICLE saysOctober 6, 2007 at 10:46 pm
Good song selection!
Ninja Emery saysOctober 6, 2007 at 11:05 pm
Thank you Bossy. As a transgendered male, formerly female, I appreciate your comments. I have a gay son as well, lucky me. My wife, who is a male-to-female transsexual and I think every family should have at least one. Heck, everything I know about being a guy I learned from my gay son!
Isabel Kallman saysOctober 6, 2007 at 11:22 pm
ooh. the popeye soundtrack. i played this over and over whence I was an adolescent.
flutter saysOctober 7, 2007 at 1:45 am
erin saysOctober 7, 2007 at 6:32 am
I only have to walk across the street to get my gay fix!
Mrs saysOctober 7, 2007 at 8:52 am
I hope bossy’s readers will be open minded enough to allow others, who do NOT hate and are NOT trolls, to disagree.
Still, the best thing about this post is the love. Gotta love the love.
velocibadgergirl saysOctober 7, 2007 at 9:55 am
I’m raising my glass to you, Bossy…may your words ring out loud and clear across the land.
Momish saysOctober 7, 2007 at 12:37 pm
Excellent! I am just grateful all my gay friends tolerate me! I’d be lost without them.
Dr Monkey saysOctober 7, 2007 at 1:42 pm
I loves teh gays too.
Teryn saysOctober 7, 2007 at 8:46 pm
Bossy is a genius. And nice too.
Velverb saysOctober 9, 2007 at 2:42 am
Hoo-Rah! Now you just need to learn how to write poetry in Polari and I’ll REALLY be impressed.
Laura Owen, Chalfont, PA saysOctober 10, 2007 at 10:00 am
I heard that Brutus was gay and Olive Oyle was really his hag. Besides, Popeye was totally in love with her and Brutus really had it bad for Popeye.
Liz saysOctober 12, 2007 at 7:44 pm
OMG. I totally heart your for this post!
VDog saysOctober 12, 2007 at 11:01 pm
VDog loves the gays, too. Loads o’ gays in my family, all around me (it is the Bay Area, after all), and we were married by a lesbian.
Anna saysOctober 16, 2007 at 5:54 am
My god, without my gays I’d eat macaroni and cheese every night–when they come to down I get to go out! And eat weird sexy adult food! Like Wild boar!
Something my hubby and I would never think to do. Long live the gays!
Fiesty Charlie saysMay 5, 2008 at 9:07 pm
Bossy…. Well, this was just damn good! Am I allowed to say damn on here?
I can only speak for myself, but it makes a difference when strong, open-minded people speak out for the GLBTQ community. Thanks from the bottom of my cowboy boot wearing, Harley riding, heart! You do rock!
Chris saysJune 2, 2008 at 2:04 am
…and Bossy’s gays love her!
hicky saysJune 2, 2008 at 11:23 am
thanks for the love boss, straight allies are very important to us! much love back to you!
