I don't get what the point is of the male/male scenes in True Blood if they keep happening in dream sequences and never have any effect on the plot or characters. The most recent example is like the third time this has happened on that show. I enjoy fanservice as much as the next girl, but it sort of rubs me the wrong way. Like the showrunners are pandering to the fangirls rather than actually developing and presenting queer desire. I think this might be what people mean by queerbaiting on the rare occasions when they're not just delusional or bitching about pairings they don't like.

In other news, both Angel Haze and Siya (of Oxygen's Sisterhood of Hip-Hop) are openly lesbian/bi and in relationships with women (Haze is with Ireland Baldwin, daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger). Ten years ago I could never have imagined two openly gay black female rappers being on TV and putting out music videos!
