Do you think Rachel Maddow cheats on her partner Susan?

Susan looks so old and frumpy and Rachel has youthful energy about her.

by Anonymousreply 7610/27/2014

No, she channels her excess sexual energy into her cocktail shaker.

by Anonymousreply 110/09/2013

They're not married, are they?

by Anonymousreply 210/09/2013

That first photo of them that always appears in the search engines is god-awful. Rachel looks about 30 pounds heavier and with a severe comb-over.

by Anonymousreply 310/09/2013

I think Susan is attractive.

by Anonymousreply 410/09/2013

I don't think Susan is attractive but evidently Rachel does and she's the one fucking her.

I doubt that Maddow cheats on her partner. It's possible, of course, but Maddow seems like the type who wouldn't.

by Anonymousreply 510/09/2013

Wasn't Rachel like an unemployed house painter when they met?

At least she knows her wife loves her for her.

She likes them big breasts.

I think she might have at least kissed another woman. She's Rachel Maddow and there are women who are probably wanting to get with her. She's human after all.

by Anonymousreply 1010/09/2013

She is a lesbian, not a gay man, so the answer might actually be no.

The way Rachel Maddow obsesses about abortion, I have wondered if she or Susan might be involved with a man.

by Anonymousreply 1210/09/2013

Rachel is married to her career, me thinks.

by Anonymousreply 1310/09/2013

She "obsessives" over abortion because there is tons of legislation attacking abortion rights that needs to be obsessed over. It's called covering real news.

by Anonymousreply 1410/09/2013

Susan is a big, big woman.

Do lesbians have a thing about living in mountainous or hilly terrain?

Yes, and flannel, R16.

by Anonymousreply 1710/09/2013

After I got over the initial shock at how the partner looks, I thought about it. I believe they get along and are compatible intellectually, and for some people, that connection is the biggest turn-on. Some people are not swayed by looks, but by brainpower and/or chemistry.

If people have a solid, intimate connection, their monogamous relationship can withstand fame. That's my guess on Maddow. Who knows what the real truth is, though.

Also, women don't have as much testosterone as men (in general!), and many have a much smaller libido to the point that it's just not that big a draw to fuck around with others. Particularly as they get older.

by Anonymousreply 1810/09/2013

Rachel maybe (or probably) loves Susan.

Love can be a strong motivator not to cheat.

by Anonymousreply 1910/09/2013

Don't they only see each other on the weekends? I understood that Maddow is in her NYC apt. during the week and spends the weekend with Mikula.

No cheating -- there's always one much older much more tired butch lez in the relationship.

I like my gay women femme and pretty with nice personalities.

Susan is not butch looking.

Not sure whether Susan's behavior is butch, but her looks are not butch.

Rachel is butch.

Butch/ femme pairing ruins the visual. I like to see two feminine lovely women together, not some confused couple

by Anonymousreply 2510/09/2013

Susan looks really old. But they do seem very happy and in love.

This photo of rachel pre fame is so hot. i like her most when she looks and dresses like a boy.

by Anonymousreply 2710/09/2013

She looks like a young Craig Ferguson in that photo, r27.

by Anonymousreply 2810/09/2013

Aside from her weight, Susan doesn't look bad.

by Anonymousreply 2910/09/2013

I think Mikula is the artistic/creative half of the couple. Maddow, who is more of an intellectual, must be attracted to that.

R27, gay man

Not with you she doesn't, OP.

by Anonymousreply 3210/09/2013

Like gay men, gay women have a libido, so don't give me the "gay women don't want to cheat" argument. You obviously haven't lived in LA.

by Anonymousreply 3310/10/2013

I'd like Rachel to fuck me hard with her strap-on.

That said, lots of butches like to be "mommied." I would guess Rachel is one of them.

by Anonymousreply 3410/10/2013

Totally agree, R27 - love that photo/look

I bet she is tempted

by Anonymousreply 3710/10/2013

No, because lesbians aren't like gay men. I'm not saying that to be snarky. Lesbians don't use glory holes or cruise parks, for example. The culture - and physical attractions - are entirely different from gay men.

They generally don't go for threesomes...and, of course, trouser tenting is impossible. Women just don't respond physically the way men do.

I think lesbians connect emotionally quite a bit...not saying they're not sexual...not saying that at all. But part of their physical attraction rests on having a true "connection" with someone else...

Thank god I'm a lesbian trapped in a gay man's body.

Me three, R27/R35. Despite the tiresome "femme les" that thinks only femmes should exist (although she can't find any high-quality enough to date) who obsessively spams every vaguely relevant thread, many of us love the spectrum of lesbian presentation. I actually think Rachel is hot in both incarnations, and love that she can pull them both off.

by Anonymousreply 4010/10/2013

I like her like this, too

by Anonymousreply 4110/10/2013

Rachel and Susan are very typical of a lesbian butch/femme couple looks-wise. The butches always look younger (like adolescent boys)even when they're not. And femmes of all sizes are appreciated and sought after not just the skinny minny lipstick lezzies. I realize in this case Rachel is really younger but nonetheless most of them have that 14 year old boy look. Susan is round and very feminine and I can see how she'd be very inviting to a certain kind of old school butch. Over the years I've come to realize butch/femme is a very specific erotic identity within the lesbian orientation. It's WAY hotter than two andros wearing matching polos and Birkies. And, no, I don't get a cheater vibe from Maddow. She really seems like a decent human being.

When women cheat it tends to be for more emotional reasons than just sheer opportunity.

by Anonymousreply 4310/10/2013

what r42 said, except i don't think it's necessarily some kind of conscious 'role play' situation.

i think rachel LOVES susan. and it's not that hard to imagine that means she would never cheat on her, no matter how many women proposition her (and i am sure it happens a lot).

by Anonymousreply 4410/10/2013

High sex drive does not mean you have to have numerous partners -- that's the difference between men and women. A woman has sex with her partner. If partner doesn't satisfy, she moves on to another one.

Her partner is beautiful. She's big and has curves. That's not unappealing to everyone. Some people are fine with that.

They met before fame which means they have a connection that stands outside the meida bullshit. They know each other for real.

And they make sense.

My partner is a big girl who is very outgoing— so I may be projecting from my own experience but Susan has a great smile, which might sound cliché, but what it really means is that she is able to laugh freely, and has a warm personality —which policy wonks like Maddow (and myself) desperatly need. Nerds that obsess over politics and other things tend to get blue and we need warm "red" people to keep us energized.

I'll bet she's great in bed, too. Bet my life on it.

You would think Maddow could do better than a beast.

Definitely a mommy/little boy thing going on there. Maybe Rachel is the child she never had.

by Anonymousreply 5910/10/2013

she looks ok in this photo

Who knows what either of them are like, or what their relationship is like? I like Rachel, but what I know of her is just from TV and interviews in which she is always "on" (as one would be I guess, not completely one's real personality etc)

Of course she cheats. But she needs to cheat with someone who is pretty AND smart because Maddow likes them smart and witty.

by Anonymousreply 6510/17/2013

I think they are going to grow apart because of Rachel's work schedule.

by Anonymousreply 6610/17/2013

Aren't lesbians practically famous for being able to go long periods without sex? I think Rachel and Susan connect on an emotional/intellectual/spiritual level, but I don't see how the physical aspect even comes into play.

Rachel doesn't seem like the cheating type, and if she did cheat, I see her with a black woman for some reason.

by Anonymousreply 6810/17/2013

No, R67, gay women like sex, too. Maybe they've gotten to that point where they just connect intellectually but you need the physical,in my opinion, otherwise you're just friends. But maybe they are really happy and we're too cynical to believe in healthy relationships in the entertainment industry.

by Anonymousreply 6910/17/2013

When she went on her book tour a couple years ago, Maddow often brought Susan along to even the most banal of cities.

That doesn't seem to me like someone who wants to cheat.

Not ALL gyas in LTRs want to be married. There are still plenty of people, gay and straight- and especially feminists- who don't belive in marriage.

R73, Rachel is now in an environment on a daily basis with lying cheating snakes. To go home and have someone who knows you and whom you can trust is worth a lot.

If I had to fuck one of them I'd pick Susan. I don't see it with Rachel at all. I hate her voice, and her head is oddly shaped. No jawline or something. Susan I bet is attractive in person.
