Gay Iconography: Was 'Mean Girls' Too Gay To Function?

Meangirls

The phrase "gay icon" gets tossed around a lot, but what does that really mean? Welcome to Gay Iconography, a new feature where we present a proposed iconic figure or character and then ask you to weigh in with your thoughts. 

So far this series has focused on individuals that many consider gay icons. Sometimes that meant obvious standards (like Cher and Judy Garland), and sometimes it was introducing more contemporary figures (like Ben Cohen and Laverne Cox) that are still making their mark.

But sometimes there are classic works that become iconic more than their individual creators or stars. (Films like Paris Is Burning and Brokeback Mountain immediately come to mind.) However, this week, we were reminded of a (perhaps sillier) movie that happens to be celebrating 10 years since its initial release.

We're talking about Mean Girls. I get it, this isn't The Boys In the Band. But, for a certain generation, Mean Girls is the definitive portrayal of the high school experience. Hailed as one of the best high school films of all time, the film was a box office and critical success when it was released in 2004, and it has only grown in popularity -- especially in the gay community. Even if you've (somehow) never seen it, it's so often quoted, you've likely heard one of Mean Girls' many one-liners.

Treat yourself to some Friday afternoon LOLs with the groolest moments that have endeared the film to those of us just too gay to function, AFTER THE JUMP

News: Stevie Nicks, Zac Efron, Boy Scouts, Benghazi

What you really wanted for Christmas? Jared

RoadSinger/songwriter Vanessa Carlton got married. And Stevie Nicks officiated

RoadAre gay marriage bans in jeopardy? Some say "not so fast": "'I wouldn't say [the Windsor ruling] is the death knell for marriage exclusion through the rest of the states, but I think it does initiate the next round of marriage equality victories,' said Bill Eskridge, a professor at Yale Law School and a constitutional law expert who has authored many works on legal issues facing same-sex couples. 'My prediction is that there will be a very fair number of judges who will be persuaded that marriage equality should prevail,' he added."

RoadThe residency has begun

RoadAnd the stars showed up to get a piece of her.

RoadIn case you missed it, the trailer for Zac Efron's raunchy comedy That Awkward Moment that features a scantily clad (and work unfriendly) Efron dealing with some consequences of taking a certain little blue pill. 

RoadBoy Scouts to open ranks to gay youth come January 1: "'My hope is there will be the same effect this Jan. 1 as the Y2K scare,' said Brad Haddock, a BSA national executive board member who chairs the policy implementation committee. 'It's business as usual, nothing happens and we move forward.'"

RoadTina Fey has a new show in the works about a "woman who escapes a doomsday cult and starts life over in New York City." Sadly, she won't be in this one. 

RoadFellow funny lady Rashida Jones has also sold a show with a somewhat wacky bent:"The half hour comedy [set to air on HBO] is called Claws and is described as a midnight-dark workplace dramedy-noir about a nail salon in Florida and the strange, dangerous women who work there."

RoadFeathers appear to have been the exception rather than the rule with Dinosaurs.

Abandoned RoadThe 38 most haunting abandoned places on earth.

RoadIs Facebook losing ground with teens? "Researching the Facebook use of 16-18 year olds in eight EU countries, the Global Social Media Impact Study found that as parents and older users saturate Facebook, its younger users are shifting to alternative platforms. 'Facebook is not just on the slide - it is basically dead and buried,' wrote Daniel Miller, lead anthropologist on the research team, who is professor of material culture of University College London. 'Mostly they feel embarrassed to even be associated with it. Where once parents worried about their children joining Facebook, the children now say it is their family that insists they stay there to post about their lives.'"

Neil Patrick Harris tried to open the Emmys, but was interrupted by past hosts of the show, including Jimmy Kimmel, Jane Lynch, Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien, and finally Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

"Said Lynch: I want to tell you why I wasn't asked back. I wasn't asked back because I am a woman."

Replied Harris: "Oh, c'mon Jane. I don't think anyone who watched that night thought of you as a woman."

Lynch: "I'm gonna show you just how much of a woman I am Harris."

Harris: "I wouldn't like it, Lynch."

Lynch: "I would like it less, Harris."
