Fag Hag niece has been on fine form today. In fact, whilst I popped over for a cup of tea and a brief play on her Ken doll (so sue me! It’s been a while and you gotta take your kicks where you can get them…) the conversation turned, like it so often does with six-and-a-half-year olds, to Civil Partnerships.
They were, decided Mimi, a decidedly good thing. ‘Seems a little bit fair. Boys should marry boys. I mean girls can marry girls, after all!’ Tres ‘Mistresses’ of you!
Just as I was finishing my examination of Ken and congratulating Mimi on her rational thinking, she suddenly decided now was a good time to come out…
‘I just wanna be gay!’ she announced dramatically, like Liza saying, ‘I just wanna dance!’
‘Do you Mimi? That’s good.’ She thought about this for a while. ‘I don’t mind people who aren’t gay. It’s just that I don’t feel like having a boy.’
Of course, shortly after this she was spotted lusting after the man who plays Danny in Grease the Musical so I think for the moment her Funday Times personals ad will be firmly in the ‘Bi-Curious’ section.
