Cool Site of the Week: Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber

Unless you’re a 12-year-old girl, when it comes to Justin Bieber, the latest in a very long line of teen heart-throbs, you’re somewhere between too old to know who he is and too old to care who he is.

As for me, if I wasn’t a blogger, I would probably be in both camps, but it is my sworn duty to know and report on all things queer and trust me, the nation’s obsession with this kid sure is queer and I have found just the right web site to prove it: “Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber”

I’ve been scolded before by readers who say I’m not sensitive enough about gender stereotyping, so I am not going to be the one to point out that the 16-year-old pop sensation looks and sounds like a girl, because I don’t have to. This week’s Cool Site does that all by itself.

LWLLJB (sorry, it’s not a great abbreviation, but the name is too damn long) is a fan site that celebrates Bieber Fever with a twist. From the look of it, the site is created by and for young lesbians with a sense of humor about themselves. There is a certain segment of the lesbian community that really goes for the boyish type and JB is that type. The tag line in the banner reads, “I mean you get it, right?”

Yes, I totally do.

Here’s how it works: Biebs-obsessed lesbian fans submit pics of themselves or friends/others that they think resemble the pop star, right down to his signature mop-top hair cut. They get posted, along with various other pics of the kid. Readers post comments. Everyone is in on the joke. It’s just that simple.

By the way, the Earth-shattering news that Justin had cut his hair this week sent shock waves through middle schools everywhere, but fear not. His new do, inspired by Ellen DeGeneres after Biebs appeared on her show recently, has only stoked the flames of passion among his lesbian legions. During the interview, JB mentioned the site by name and said he thought it was pretty cool.

As with everything in our ADHD-driven pop culture, Bieber Fever will pass, so check out Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber while you can, have a giggle or two, share it with your friends and we’ll all move on to the next obsession.
