Us Magazine has quoted Michael Lohan as saying:
“their romance "is evident to anyone with half a brain." Still, he adds, "Just like the [topless] Marilyn Monroe spread, Linds is my daughter and there are just some things a father doesn't want to see or hear, regardless of whether they are true or false."
And he’s referring to her lesbian relationship with Samantha Ronson but clearly, the central point he is making is that Lindsay Lohan is his daughter and as such, he should be considered for public attention and media coverage again in the future.
The interesting thing about this is that if Lindsay Lohan were any other actress she’d probably make a bigger effort to make sure she wasn’t seen as being out. I mean, either she’d keep it under wraps like Wentworth Miller or Anderson Cooper does OR she’d just come out and be an adult (to the extent that she’s able to be an adult anyway) like Cynthia Nixon. Dina Lohan is denying that Lindsay Lohan is a lesbian obviously because she likes the drama and the self imposed censorship because it makes her feel like she’s got more potential to be mainstream famous herself. Just like when gay Republicans force their personalities into figurative corsets. They feel so much safer and better. Or Chelsea queens or mindless Christians for that matter. Homogeny is so much safer and easier than awkward self awareness.
Ok, but my actual point here is that compared to everything else, Lohan being gay in Hollywood just seems so completely like a non-issue. There are so many other insane things about her that lesbianism actually anchors her to reality. Especially compared to her ludicrous parents who keep insisting that people pay attention to them by saying how normal they are.
God, the Lohan family are annoying. I watched Living Lohan last night which is entirely about Dina Lohan and of course only peripherally about Ali. I really think Dina Lohan and Spencer Pratt should open a PR agency. They could call it Annoying Face Time and they should only take on clients like Michael Lucas, Ann Coulter and Satan. [source]
