…they've got Orlowski banged to rights.
We at El Reg have been called a fair few things in our time, but never before has it been suggested that we are dedicated practitioners of the Sapphic arts. Well, it was only a matter of time, and readers are invited to have a shufti at this piece from the Independent, which earlier today examined in some depth the Lesbian …
So what does it take to qualify as a Lesbian .....
Lusting after sexy ladies
Having facial hair
Having hairy legs perhaps........
Therefore by definition I must be a Lesbian
I am a 42 year old father of one, happily married so perhaps not ?
Paris . . . . cos she may well star in a nice girl on girl flick some time
Mine are the dungarees - off to the pub now for a pint !
looks to me like the paper that nobody reads is trying to up its circulation with sleazy stories at the expense of the Reg!
If it was the General BelGrauniad you would have been *lensbais*
If it was the Torygraph you'd have been fine because they don't know what lesbians are.
If it had been the Dirty Digger's Times, it would have read "Corrrrrrr! Online Mag El Reg Sucks Up to Lissome Lesbians in Shock Scandal!" (or something equally restrained)
Paris because I heard her on the radio this morning, nowt to do with my sexual fantasies, I just liked her song - a bit)
We've known for years that Lester has a predication for ropes and rubber - are these events connected in some way, I wonder?
Sorry to say this: I think you might have weakened your case against the Indy. I suggest the patented disk-crusher recently mentioned deserves an outing...
Why PH? Because I'm sure she'd... no, better not.

As much as I "like" paper (in that it's the only one I can stand to read) I've noticed their hacks cannot cope with any science/technology of any sort, and will always get it wrong - even in their Sci/Tech/Business articles.
The SIndy had a four page spread on the dangers of t'internetting - that was almost as funny as some of the Reg's friday Pub-lishings.
Do you think they even bothered to open up the page, or just stole a quote from google?
I for one would not have any problems with 'L' Reg branching out in order to appeal to a wider demographic.
(Hehe... did you notice the pun there... didya? didya?... Ahem...)
We're going to be drowning in poontang now we're all lesbians!
I'll still keep buying the Indie though - it has 4 sudokus and a crossword! - and I'll keep coming here for real news.
If you honestly enjoy Paris' aural offering, might I suggest "Kingston Town" by UB40. It has essentially the same chord sequence and rhythm but without the attendant problems of making me want to stab someone in the eye.
Well, not a shocker really.
I read the Indy when I want to get angry about something. I could just read the Daily Mail/Express, but frankly I prefer to peruse something that has been written for someone who's mental age breaches double figures. Even if it's only just.
Anyway, I'm all up for more penetrating lesbain debate. How about a video interview with some leading lesbians. Preferably on tarpaulin. With an oil shower. And cucumbers.
Paris. Well, obviously.
The Indy wasn't too bad while Charles Arthur was there. Since then it's just awful for tech.
I always assume that the 10 best of anything for stuff I don't know about (say ladyhair removers or coffee tables) are going to be largely crap. This is based on the observation that if it is something I know something about, they're usually wrong. As well as the best budget pick often costing more than I'd spend on said object in the first place).
But it is Wednesday, and there's an actual link to it on their 'site.
I'm almost speechless as to how terrifyingly amusing this is.
Just, haha, I can't think of it. How is it possible to respond to something that is described as credible without checking it out?
How can anyone fail to possibly spot that this 'site is definitely not a Gay 'site?
Journalism, there is none.
Present company excepted.
/specs 'cos of not actually reading something before reporting.
But still available at:
for a while yet.
This is clearly Lesbian retaliation for Lester Haines article 'Gay Americans favour hybrid electric vehicles' in which he insultingly refers to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community as GLBT instead of the correct LGBT. The lesbians always come first ! If in doubt, googlefight - LGBT 7,700,000 results, GLBT 5,590,000 results
Roger Alton is to newspaper owners what Paris Hitlon is to newspaper editors. He has whored out the Observer and worthy journalists like Richard Ingrams went to the Indy just to avoid him. If anyone writes to the Indy again please forward this previous related Register article -
Harvard Man in lesbian mix-up wants satire clearly labeled
You've got your Lesbians mixed up ........ the cheeks are for the other ones apparently ;o)
@ Everyone Lesbo-Paris'ing .....
I'd rather it be Kylie Minogue and Alissa Milano ...... now there's a vision I still very much enjoy <vsg>
Speaking of Lesbians and El Reg actually - I can understand where us blokes would insert into IT ..... but where would the Lesbians? surely this should have given it away that they were gonna get themselves into a sticky position (okay, I couldn't help it) and leave 'em wide open (dammit, not again) to a lil criticism on their lack of journalistic research?
/- Penguin - cause someone had to .......
Those spoilsports at the Indie may have changed the article, but Google's cache will always show the truth about our Sapphic leanings:
The Independent has caused no slight on your good name, especially one of sexual orientation:
"Now, an on-line magazine called The Register has put forward a solution."
That's taken directly from the article linked to by your good self, Sir.
Paris, because it's obligatory, and because her studious nature would ensure she CHECKED THE OFFENDING ARTICLE FIRST!
Ah, yes, fair comment. A retraction is certainly the done thing, although Steven Burn also makes a very fair point.
I really shouldn't post just after I've had a coffee - it makes me all tetchy, strident and shift key happy. At least I had the sense to post anonymously, so you've no idea who I am. I could be your teacher, your mum, or your care worker... Doh, just finished another coffee ;-)
"If you honestly enjoy Paris' aural offering, might I suggest "Kingston Town" by UB40. It has essentially the same chord sequence and rhythm but without the attendant problems of making me want to stab someone in the eye."
the similarity was not lost on me the other morning. I found it not unpleasant to listen to for a couple of minutes, although I shan't be queuing it up for a .torrent download (unlike her videos which are much more interesting, especially her *o*ral offerings)
I can't even remember the name of it now. Who were we talking about? Paris who?
You Should Have Finished Reading The Thread.
Apt advice for a few of the "Mr. Angry"s in this here forum :)
Beware the power of the internet. Something you would never have said if you'd had five seconds to think twice can now be said in four seconds, and half-way round the world by the fifth....
I can't point to one study, I am extrapolating from several studies which included lots of field research at Ani Difranco concerts.
Women are slightly more biased to symmetrical mates than males are, and each sex is better at identifying their own genders symmetry. Everyone orgasms harder and quicker with a symmetrical partner. In women seemingly this 'upsuck' can rip off a condom and deposit it in the cervix. Women are also slightly more symmetrical than men are so it seems likely that lesbians generally achieve faster orgasms than the rest of the LGBT community.
"Yet, it was only three years ago that two British biologists, Robin Baker and Mark Bellis, tested the so-called upsuck hypothesis. "
"If it's true that our insistence of symmetry in the laws of nature is largely a selection effect because of how our brain works, it may mean that there are completely different ways to formulate the laws of nature in which symmetry is not the most fundamental thing," Livio said.
"Overall, the researchers found that faces correctly classified to their own sex, and therefore considered to be either more feminine or masculine, tended to be faces with higher symmetry."
