Dolly Parton: Why does Datalounge think she's a dyke?

This is the only place where this seems to be regarded as common knowledge. She doesn't ping at all to me.

by Anonymousreply 3309/16/2020

She's seen more with her butch lady best friend, with whom she's admitted to sharing a bed, than she is with her husband. I can't think why people make assumptions, OP...

No, just no, not the only place; and e.g. good bit of stories about her out there about having had sex with women, e.g. in the Playboy Mansion, doesn't make one a lesbian, but still. And she grew up in a time when there was much less questioning of sexuality and mental health, and celebrities were much more protected and before the transparency of the internet. Also, today people are much more critical of the sexuality of younger people and celebs than about former and old ones, also very hard on dl.

The rumors or the vapors?

The enormous joke-sized breasts.

I heard about it on DListed, and even before then.

It doesn’t make a difference. Everyone loves Dolly.

Emmylou Harris pings to high heaven anyway. That I got.

Dolly Parton is 74 years old meaning that she was born and raised at a time when coming out as gay was taboo - and when she went into show business and became ultra famous, coming out became double taboo. We've all heard the rumors about Dolly being gay and don't expect her to come out anytime soon if at all. That show business closet is firmly locked - and it's all about image.

A number of years ago I read the sizzling memoir by Angela Bowie (David Bowie's first wife) and she pretty much spilled it all including people in show business who are actually gay - and Dolly Parton was one of the celebrities that she outed. It's probably the worst kept secret in Hollywood - just about everyone knows it but the media won't touch it.

I tended to mostly believe her story that her husband likes to stay out of the spotlight. Maybe because, like most women, I suspected she wasn’t interested in sex.

The Bonnie Mace story didn't help (or maybe it did).

Well, sad to say, you're an idiot, R10. Lou has been married three times (and, yes, all three times to men) and is a DEFINITE cock hound. Believe me, I've tried.

How many times has Meredith Baxter Birney been married?

Karen Carpenter, ONJ, Helen Reddy... they ping.

Dolly doesn’t. Not that that means it’s not true.

Hard to believe anyone thinks she is ur homework dears

by Anonymousreply 2109/15/2020

Seriously, never a rumor about her with other men, just this one mysterious Carl whom she was never seen with. there is no harm/foul that she is, just that we are over all this BS and just admit you are gay.

by Anonymousreply 2209/15/2020

Admit? I prefer Reveal.

Check out the thread on L Chat if anyone has any doubt.

by Anonymousreply 2409/15/2020

You can't hide your sexuality. A tiny bit of research and you know. All the famous female singers are lesbians. I have no idea why. Maybe straight women are too lazy. Apparently, it takes a lot of sacrifice. The nervousness and sense if not belonging seems to propel gays to the top in singing, acting, sports...

LChat believe EVERY woman just needs to have a bad experience with a man and she’ll join their team.

god bless her, we love lezzys like dolly !!!!

by Anonymousreply 2709/15/2020

The Dolly thread on L Chat put together every bit of info out there about the possibility of Dolly being a lesbian. It has convinced skeptics.

by Anonymousreply 2809/15/2020

Do they have a thread on Tammy Wynette?

by Anonymousreply 2909/15/2020

I have not seen one.

Just like all the very best actresses from the Golden Age of Hollywood until now. They're the ones with the drive and the talent. The only woman you can't attach to another woman ever was Liz Taylor and she was a distaster.

It's too bad Donald Trump ruined the "Sad" comeback, because this is sad.

Like, for real, y'all!

Sorry, I'm having a Britney moment.

Dolly and Judy were photographed going to a lesbian club years ago.
