SBG 69: Clueless with Kristen Arnett

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) chat with author and self-proclaimed “lesbian Willie Nelson” Kristen Arnett (@kristen__arnett) about why the movie Clueless Should’ve Been Gay. Beyond the very obvious lesbianism of overalls clad, Doc Marten wearing Tai, Cher is a classic example of a closeted high femme lesbian. Lesbians canonically cannot drive, wear a lot of plaid, have an uncanny ability to find one another in the wild, say ew at least twenty times a day when they see a boy, and have extremely intense friendship breakups that are absolutely worse than actual breakups. All of these things describe Cher. She is so desperate to hide from her sexuality that when she sees Tai happily being her gay little self, she immediately tries to change her and push her back into her high tech closet. With the amount of plaid, Jeeps, and gay teachers we get, it’s almost surprising that Clueless isn’t gay. They can’t fool us though, we can spot gay activity from a mile away.
