I was born Kara Zor-El. Into the Great House of El. On the doomed planet Krypton.Rocketed to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men.
Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive.They call me Supergirl...
...and this is the story of how I died.
It all started with a bang, and not a whisper the way most of these big stories do. Things had been good for a long time. The Sun shone every morning without fail. Heroes always won the day and nobody ever died. The multiverse was almost perfect.
Then in the 1960s a new breed of hero came along. These weren't the perfect heroes that fought for truth and justice since before the second World War. These were heroes who had problems. They had hangnails, and fought amongst each other. Most of them were poor and couldn't seem to ever make ends meet.
These heroes were real. They were Marvels.
Slowly things began to change for us. Not all at once, and not in a huge way, but we tried to make as big a ripple in the waters as the Marvels were making. Green Arrow faced drug issues. Green Lanturn tackled racism. Costumes were updated. New Gods were introduced and Batman became a darker version of himself.
At the beginning of the 80s more universes were added to the multiverse. Elementals and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles took the spotlight and the once forgotten X-Men became all the rage, shattering barriers never breached before.
On our side of the fence things were still good for us. At least we thought so. We had the greatest hero of all time and he stood for everything that was good and pure in the world and no one could dispute that. We were more than heroes. We were legends.
I don't know whose idea it was. Who first said, "Things are boring, let's kill Supergirl." I guess it doesn't matter. Someone wanted to shake things up in our wholesome little world so universes started dying. It effected everything really. The Marvels like to say they weren't touched, but they were. After Batman became a Dark Knight and Watchmen showed the world what true realism was all about, everything changed.
For my part, what can I say. My only regret was not being able to say goodbye to Barbara. She was my best friend and more, and after I was gone they pretty much destroyed her. They took away the thing she loved most. They took away Batgirl.
I wish I had been there to protect her. Or to at least to say goodbye and tell her that I would always love her. But they didn't let me have that.
No, instead they put me in the one position they knew I would fail. The Anti-Monitor had Superman down, and in an instant he was going to strike with all his power. I couldn't let that happen. I know he would have survived. He's the best, after all. But I couldn't take that chance.
So they put me in the position of trying to be him. I tried to be Superman. I had all his abilities and my power was equal to his. He raised me to be just like him and I tried with everything I had to do just that. But I'm not Superman.
And the Anti-Monitor knew that. I turned away for just a second...
...and that's when he killed me.
Like I said, no regrets. I fought along side legends and got to die in the arms of the greatest hero who ever lived. What more could a girl ask for. In the end, what more could Supergirl ask for.
I fought the good fight and when the time came I died in the fire, saving the person that means most to the world. I died a hero.
My name is Kara Zor-El...
...and that was the story of how I lived.

Australian singer/songwriter Sia thought she was just "chatting with her mate" at the U.K.'s Attitude Magazine when she casually mentioned she was having love problems — with an American girl. She's made it official, but, for the 32 year-old who has only recently "made it" in the music business, coming to terms with her sexuality has left her feeling unprepared. She's been doing hours of phone interviews to promote her new album Some People Have Real Problems, and now she's having to field questions about her sexuality. It take guts to come out in such a public way! Sia is setting a great example; lets hope closeted celebs follow. Here's my favorite Sia number: Breathe Me. . .
3Way is Three’s Company for a new generation.
After a tabloid-worthy divorce from vintage action star Dirk LaBonte, Siobhan (Maeve Quinlan) moves her lesbian best friend, Roxie (Cathy Shim), into her house believing this will be good for both her soul and her newly flattened wallet. Siobhan’s looking for a brand new start. A week later, in true lesbian fashion, Roxie moves her new girlfriend, Andrea (Jill Bennett), into the house, making it a 3Way. Roxie’s ex, Geri, (Maile Flanagan) inserts herself into the 3way.
Siobhan’s brand new start looks a little crowded. It might not be what she envisioned, but it’ll be one hell of a ride!

Lyrics To "Yes, We Can!"
It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.
Yes we can.
It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom.
Yes we can.
It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.
Yes we can.
It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballots; a President who chose the moon as our new frontier; and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.
Yes we can to justice and equality.
Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.
Yes we can heal this nation.
Yes we can repair this world.
Yes we can.
We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.
We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics...they will only grow louder and more dissonant ........... We've been asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.
But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false...about hope.
Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America; that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea --
Yes. We. Can.

She doesn't see things the way they do. The sun comes up every morning and she drags herself out of bed, met by the cold morning air because they like to sleep with the heat turned down low and the fan on. Night sweats, you see. Plus the entanglement of legs and bodies keep them warm under the comforter. Keeps them warm from the cold.
She goes through the day watching everyone around her, wondering what they're thinking and if it might in any way resemble what's going on inside her mind. She knows it's not. She knows they don't think the way she does. She knows that if they ever caught a glimpse inside her head...well, she knows that would be a bad thing.
They go on about their lives around her and she pretends to do so, too. Pretends to be one of them, part of the crowd, one of the gang, a wheel in the machine. Nothing could be further from the truth.
They hold together and keep each other safe. "Friends and Family." All mixing together and laughing and enjoying just being around one another. They use it to shield them from whats reallying going on in the world around them. They try not to think of it and huddle together under their roofs as if walls and ceilings will shield them. A comforter keeping them warm from the cold.
Night comes and they all retreat to their homes ready for the days end. Most of them rarely venture out into the night, preferring instead to lock themselves away, settling for entertainment behind a screen. They watch, flipping channel after channel, but it's all the same. The horror of the world they avoid in the daylight comes streaming into their homes, filling them with the dread of the world. Luckily the glass protects them from reality. It's someone else's reality, after all, not their's. It could never happen to them.
Her favorite thing in the world to do is sit in the dark with music playing in the background whilst the universe unfolds before her eyes on another screen of glass. At least in that screen she can find some truths with the click of a mouse. At least she doesn't try to avoid it. At least she's not afraid of the dark.
Sometimes when everyone else is sleeping she sneaks out into the world and speads her brand of mania throughout their lives. She usually doesn't try to hide this and sometimes gets in trouble for it. She only wants to be herself but they fiercely attempt to take that away from her.
"It's not normal," they say.
"Neither am I," she thinks to herself. "Neither is the world."
They all have their own brand of insanity. From the woman who walks down the street counting every step she takes, to the man that rapes and kills whole villages just for sport. They all have something they want to hide.
She doesn't like to hide the insanity. She likes to take it out and spread it on the bed and roll in it. She lets it get all over her and it's so much that it spills onto the floor and down the stairs and out the door. It drips onto the street and the next thing you know it's loose in the world and no one can stop it till she herself decides it's enough. Which is rarely.
Usually she just takes the pills and hides it behind her eyes they way they all do. The way YOU do. Some thoughts are just too horrible to share.
In the quiet of the night she sometimes wakes and untangles herself from the bodies of others then just sits there watching them.
She wonders if they're drowning.
Lesbian Issues...kinda sorta.
It's OFFICIAL! Men are no longer needed.
Sperm cells created from female embryo
By Roger Highfield, Science Editor
Last Updated: 7:01am GMT 31/01/2008
Sperm cells have been created from a female human embryo in a remarkable breakthrough that suggests it may be possible for lesbian couples to have their own biological children.
British scientists who had already coaxed male bone marrow cells to develop into primitive sperm cells have now repeated the feat with female embryonic stem cells.
So, all...most of the women of the world got together last weekend while you men were either drinking, working or taking out the trash, and decided that MASS EXTERMINATION of your now semi-worthless species will begin this summer. We will of course keep the VERY strong for moving heavy objects, lobotomised, and the genius' among you, scientists, scholars, writer of Ultimate Spider-man, but other than that you. are...GONE!
No point in discussing the issue, the plan has already begun.
From the, "WHOA, my fantasies are now complete" files, as reported by news outlets everywhere last September...
Marcia Brady aka Maureen McCormick Had Lesbian Sex With Jan!
I thought it was old, old news that the Brady's were not as clean cut as their TV counterparts. I think one was gay and died of AIDS, Greg was banging Jan, and Jan was banging Peter, or something like that, but it seems that Marcia was really actually banging Jan. No way! Maureen McCormick details her lesbian experiences with Jan (Eve Plumb) in her tell-all book which hits shelves in 2008.
A source told The National Enquirer, "The most explosive comments will be how the then-blonde, blue-eyed cutie developed a crush on Eve Plumb, which led to some sexual play. This book will certainly come as a shocker. While Maureen is not a lesbian, she reveals there were some sexual hijinks going on behind the scenes. It's bizarre because she played such a virginal character on the show."
If we knew back then what we know now, this could have possibly helped the Brady girls careers. Thank God for 2007 where naked pictures, cocaine and lesbian scandals actually raise your star-meter instead of lower it. The Brady Bunch days must have been such a bore, since they had to keep underage lesbian sex quiet, sounds kind of like Nazi Germany.
Over the last few months I have watched hundreds (Dozens, even!) of short lesbian films and, although I couldn't find screencaps for any except my top pick, each one is truly a gem. Most are under ten minutes. The ones that are longer, all under 20 minutes, are split into separate parts.

The Strange Death of the Woman Who Filed a Rape Lawsuit Against Bush
by Jackson Thoreau
November 18, 2003 – Early one Saturday afternoon in July 2003, I made a simple phone call to Margie Schoedinger, a Texas woman who filed a rape lawsuit against George W. Bush in December 2002. I expected to leave a message on a machine, so I was caught a little off guard when Schoedinger answered.
She, too, sounded somewhat surprised I had called, saying she hadn’t heard from many other reporters. But she talked to me for a few minutes about the legal action.
"I am still trying to prosecute [the lawsuit]," said Schoedinger, a 38-year-old African-American woman who lived in the Houston suburb of Missouri City. "I want to get this matter settled and go on with my life."
Well, Schoedinger hasn't gone on with her life. In fact, three months after I spoke to her, she died in an apparent suicide. And this matter remains unsettled.
ABC News: Killer Germ Comes Home With Troops
Troops arriving home from Iraq and Afghanistan have been carrying a mysterious, deadly bacteria, according to a new magazine report.
Doctors have linked the bacterium acinetobacter baumannii to at least seven deaths, as well as to loss of limbs and other severe ailments, according to the report, which found the bacterium has spread quickly since the war in Afghanistan began in the fall of 2001
9/11 inquiry head 'tried to shield George Bush'
By Tom Leonard in New York
Last Updated: 1:55am GMT 05/02/2008
Philip Zelikow, the 9/11 Commission's executive director, allegedly attempted to intimidate staff to avoid findings that would be damaging to President George W Bush, who was running for re-election, and Condoleezza Rice, his then National Security Adviser.
These happy characters are Peruvian anti-riot police, who are seen here parading in celebration of Peru's independence day. Yes, they are terrifying. This makes Peru the latest entry in a long list of countries I will try to avoid rioting in. I'm still all about rioting in Canada and Sweden, however.
We Are In A LOT Of Trouble!
