Here you go R2. This is what it says at that link:
"If you're pissed about Target's $250,000 campaign donations to anti-LGBT candidates, you're not alone. Bisexual actress Amber Heard are staging a protest on August 11 at the West Hollywood location. She is rounding up the troops on her official Facebook profile, where she also posted recent photos of herself with Tasya van Ree. Adorbs."
Just that, and a pic of them holding hands.

I'm going to give her a pass on the Rand thing due to her being only 24. Other than that she obviously doesn't give a fuck, in a really awesome way, about being out with the chick she's in love with. This sort of thing would be considered anathema by most other rising starlets.

I wonder if she knows Ayn Rand considered homosexuality "irrational". That it "involves psychological flaws, corruptions, errors, or unfortunate premises". And that it's ""immoral, and more than that; if you want my really sincere opinion, it's disgusting."

Not that literally Amber was the only one.

Amber and gay actors in her generation should look at the example of closet cases like John Travolta and Tom Cruise (allegedly). These people are psychology damaged by living in the closet. Is that the way to live?
It is better to go the Jodie Foster route. Don't set up elaborate facades just don't discuss your private life. She has said she does not want the focus to be on her private life, but on her work and people have accepted that. Granted in today's world, it is a bit different where talent does not count as much as your off-screen antics, cases in point Paris Hilton, Kim K, all the stupid reality "stars".
Amber will have to decide what is more important to her - to be true to herself or to be popular in the public eye.
She deserves credit because she very easily get into a mutually bearding situation with Matt Dallas, Zac Effron, Chace Crawford, etc. etc.

Jodi Foster is different. Unlike Heard, she never sold herself as a sex icon but an actress. Amber Heard is an extremely beautiful actress who is playing up her looks and sexuality. Don't know how talented she is as antress. She's been photograhed in provocative poses on the cover of Maxim, Flaunt, etc. so, naturally, she will be lusted after by straight men (or women) and asked the perennial question-- who is she dating?

I'm pretty curious as to how she will handle publicity moving forward as well. She's gone from portraying herself as completely straight in '08, ambiguous in '09, and then a visible gay rights activist in '10. There have also been more pap photos of her and Tasya acting like a couple (light pda, walking their dogs, etc) than in past years.
As others have pointed out though, it's one thing to come out as bi when in a relationship with a man, and a different thing entirely when in a relationship with a woman.

It is so unfortunate that a person's career can be held hostage over something like this. It is also the fault of studios who don't give openly actors a chance. The public would be more accepting if it were not such a rarity because gay actors stay closeted.

Even if they dig it up, she should not comment about it. Where we are right now as a society is that people will overlook someone being gay if that person does not make an issue of it. Many people know that Foster, Travolta, Jackman, and Spacey are gay. They still go see their movies.
I would hate see her get fucked over because she is in love with a woman. That would be royally fucked up.
Let's hope casting people have more sense than that. The public does not really care.

On Amber's official website is a photo of Amber with a poem penned by Tasya. The poem reads as basically Tasya's thoughts while having sex with Amber. They don't seem to be hiding much.

This is especially relevant given what is happening to John Travolta right now. The man must be miserable. He is clearly gay, running around bath house (excuse me "spas"), committing to a weird religion, and entering into a fake marriage. All that to hide his homosexuality for career purposes.
Is it worth it? Maybe he is rich as shit. He can fly around in his own personal commercial air plane. Money like that can help ease the pain.
But look at him, he looks unhappy, he overeats, and now it is gonna come out anyway. When it's all said and done, it comes out. So, all that hiding for naught.
After he is gone, he will go down in history as a gay - bisexual actor. Just like Cary Grant, Tyrone Power, James Dean, etc.

Does the general public really care if an actor/musician declares they are bi? That seems like a non-issue. As has been previously mentioned the only reason this could matter is because in this rare instance the bisexual is currently in a gay relationship.

Things are changing. No one is going to care that Amber is bi and with a woman. Especially straight men. I think her career will be fine.

R131, are you on crack or just psycho? Both probably. I have a right to my opinion.
Who appointed you the Amber-Tasya police? I don't find Tasya attractive BDF, and I can say that if I feel like it. Despite that I wish them well.
This will really make your head spin R131, but the odds are against most actors succeeding in the cold-hearted business of entertainment. Add being openly gay to the equation and it complicates matters.
This will really blow your mind. The odds of their relationship-marriage lasting is against that too. Amber is 25 years old. She is bisexual. Do you honestly think she will be with one person for the rest of her life? Dude get real.
The odds of her ending up with a man are also against Tasya. The overwhelming majority of bi-women end up with men. Angelina, Anna Paquin, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Megan Fox, etc. The list is endless.
The evidence does support Amber being bisexual. She dated a Mexican soap opera actor before Tasya, she openly speaks about her attraction for men, and she has declared herself bisexual.
Angelina Jolie was also in love with Jenny Schumizu when she was younger and said she wanted to marry Jenny. Look what happened.
Amber's lesbian fans should not pin all their hopes on her relationship with Tasya. She is too young to have all that pressure.

Straight guys like the fantasy of the object of their sexual desires being bisexual and with women occasionally but not permanently. It's the fantasy of dick conquering pussy. But if she has been married for a couple of years and gone to the trouble of changing her last name, that sounds pretty committed to me. Straight men's fantasies will cool off, just watch. If The Rum Diary makes her a breakout star, her PR machine will try to play down the marriage deal....just like Matt Bomer's PR has done with his personal life.

And how can you say they ended up with men? For all you know, Anna Paquin could leave her husband in a month for Lea Delaria. If Amber were really into men she would be dating some male celebrity to raise her profile in Hollywood. Everyone knows that if you want publicity, you can get it by dating another star of the opposite sex. She could easily have arranged some PR hookup with a male star but instead she is with a woman she loves. To me, that says she really loves women. Why does everyone assume that if a woman if pretty or fem then she must be a "hasbian"? I know people thought the same thing about Portia De Rossi.

R138, Amber may very well be the exception to the general rule. Nobody knows.
"None of these women ever had a serious relationship with a woman..."
You can't say that R138, Madonna dated Ingrid Casares for years. Angelina said she wanted to marry Jenny-whatever her last name is.
Amber is kinda young to be in a committed relationship, and could end up breaking Tasya's heart.

Madonna and Angelina were hot messes when they were young. As far as I can tell Amber seems to have built a pretty nice life with Tasya and they seem to mostly keep to themselves. Pretty boring stuff by Hollywood starlet standards I'm thinking.

You're a very opinionated person and you began publicly speaking about your relationship with your girlfriend over the past year. Is it difficult to be able to do what you want to do, since actresses so often have people trying to package them? Sure. I think it's interesting because recently, there's been a lot of media attention surrounding my relationship. It is frustrating because I don't label myself one way or another. For example, I've had amazing, successful relationships with men, and now I have an amazing, successful relationship with a woman, and the bottom line is I love who I love. I don't have to answer to anyone for it. I love who I love, and I am who I am.
Though you realize that as an actress, you're bound to be labeled all sorts of things. True, but all I can do is fight to confront the preconceived notions of what those labels mean or what roles I'm limited to. Just because I'm with a woman now doesn't mean I'm less or more capable of changing the world.

Was Depp and Heard's fauxmance/showmance a real thing? I think Depp fucked her and became smitten by her. It was just fling for Amber and then she was back to pussy.Can she pick someone who is an absolute knockout like she is instead of Dommy's daughter.

Amber is looking so miserable these days, especially when photographed out with Depp. The only picture I have seen of her and Depp with her looking happy is on the red carpet for Rum Diary. I'm guessing this woman likes the limelight a lot and does not like walking a step or two behind Depp with him holding her hand and leading the way.
