Vanity Fair sent its best writer, Leslie Bennetts, to interview two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank. The results are startling revelations about Swank's divorce from actor Chad Lowe, and I don't think they do much for Swank.
She says Lowe is "sober" after overcoming demons, but that his addiction — whatever it was — tanked the marriage.
I have to speak up a little in defense of Chad Lowe. When he married her, Lowe had no idea Swank would become an overnight Oscar darling with a runaway career. He was always a hard-working actor who labored in the shadow of his showier brother, Rob.
But Chad was just as talented and never traded on his brother's fame. It must have been pretty hard to wake up and discover himself in that position again, this time with his wife.
I'm a little surprised Hilary "sold out" Chad that way. When I saw them together, he was nothing if not supportive and solicitous. It's hard to imagine the Vanity Fair piece was agreed to by Swank as a means of hurting Lowe. Good guys are allowed to screw up once in a while, too. - RF
STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY By thefayth, BiNet USA President With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community. When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people.

And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gen
