Jodie Foster splits from girlfriend

Jodie FosterAccording to reports, Jodie Foster has split with long-time girlfriend Cydney Bernard, ending the couple’s 14-year relationship. The split comes just months after Foster broke her silence about the relationshipwhich was one of Hollywood’s worst kept secretsduring an acceptance speech at a Los Angeles film gala, in which she thanked: “My beautiful Cydney, who sticks with me through with me through the rotten and the bliss.” The pair had been living together, raising Foster’s two sons, nine-year-old Charlie and six-year-old Kit. An insider told the National Enquirer, “Jodie breaking up with Cydney is shocking… [they] have been together for so many years and have two children together, the potential fallout and legal wrangling from this split could be monumental.”

    I’m sorry, but, ‘homosexual, lesbians, same-sex anything’ just make my stomach turn.

    The new laws in California and the un-ending media coverage of it just makes me sick and I have to turn my eyes from the coverage when I see all the ‘butch’ women parading around and kissing each other!

  2. Karen Gallagher-Burt • May 16, 2008 @ 9:39 AM

    Let it go! Love is love is love……nobody “Decides’ what sex they will be attracted to, they just are! I admire Jodi Foster’s work. I can empathize with the couples feelings but in reality, like all celebrities, I don’t know them , I am not obsessed with them, and frankly their lives are none of our business.

    may they both find ya both..

  4. Melanie • May 16, 2008 @ 10:50 AM

    trl, in this day and age I cannot believe people still have these views, it shows how much fear and insecurity u possess. maybe u need to look deep inside yourself and figure out why this topic brings such negative feelings inside of u! it is definately your problem not ‘butch’ women parading around with ‘joy and happiness’ inside of themselves. p.s. i’m straight and believe everyone has the right to happiness!! hope u find it soon, because life is short!

  5. Nancy • May 16, 2008 @ 11:52 AM

    Hey, trl is entitled to his/her opinion too!! I absolutely agree with trl although, I don’t get sick…I get pissed off because I believe that men and women were given specific parts for a reason and that people who are gay should not be displaying it in public!! What they do in their own homes is their business but, don’t do it in front of me cause I will tell ya what I think, that’s for sure!! Don’t the rest of you believe in God? I mean, sure, I don’t go to church and I don’t go around preaching to people…I keep my religion AT HOME but……ADAM and EVE!! Get it???

  6. Nancy • May 16, 2008 @ 11:56 AM

    Oh, and Melanie, I don’t believe that I am being ignorant in saying this and, I am not fearful or insecure about this issue. This is just my opinion and sorry, but I want to get into heaven so, I don’t agree with this issue.

  7. AlexRover • May 16, 2008 @ 11:58 AM

    Me thinks we didnae know if she was gay or not. Maybe she liked the lads too! So let’s not judge, shall we. Any breakups are sad. I want to wish Jodie and Cydney lots of courage through these hard times. They’ll both need it. I just hope fer them that they shall remain good friends.

  8. Starr • May 16, 2008 @ 11:58 AM

    I think I love Jodie Foster even more now.
    I have never once minded same sex (not me) but other people how they find love no matter the body part. LOVE is beautiful. Its there to share and make you feel all good inside, I feel sorry for the people who dont have that understanding.

  9. Ian • May 16, 2008 @ 12:00 PM

    There are so many things that go on “in public” that are at far greater odds with the teachings and beliefs of the world’s religions… I think people holding hands, kissing, expressing love for one another is a positive thing -no matter what sex they are.

  10. Jewel • May 16, 2008 @ 12:22 PM

    I feel bad for anyone who breaks up as its a painful process.. I hope the best for both of these ladies!

  11. Nancy • May 16, 2008 @ 12:40 PM

    I don’t ‘hate’ anyone! I just don’t agree with it, that’s all…the rest of you can have your own opinions on it. I don’t go around beating people up or doing things to them because of their choices, but I will voice my opinion when it is flaunted in my face! I’m not saying that all of you who disagree with me will not go to heaven but, I am entitled to my opinion as you are to yours. I also think that Jodi and Cydney did a very good job of keeping their relationship private and I have absolutely no problem with that as it was not IN MY FACE and Jodi is a very good actor, I would feel no differently of her if she were straight. I will love my children no matter which path they choose in life but, let it be known that I will NEVER agree with it. EVER!

  12. CC • May 16, 2008 @ 12:51 PM

    The world is changing, and people are people, straight or gay/lesbian, why can’t we all get along! Being a lesbian myself feel happy that there are few people with your opinion in my community, where i can hold hands and hug my partner and not worry about ignorant people. BTW, hugging and holding hands is just that! hugging and holding hands.

  13. Tony • May 16, 2008 @ 1:15 PM

    yes because so many gay people actually FLAUNT it saying look at me look at me.

  14. Taz • May 16, 2008 @ 1:24 PM

    LOL… wow… funny how things quickly turn to disdain, hate etc… glad the world is diverse though, spices it up 🙂

    Anyway… just thought I would drop this as I feel no matter who you are, no matter what age, race, color, creed, religion, gender, gay/not gay etc… it is applicable:

    “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
    Eleanor Roosevelt

    If “we” as “people” could only see that no matter what, we all experience hurt, pain, love, loss, sadness, elation etc…and not only do we experience it, we also all share in those emotions more times than not… If we could also see that no matter who we cut or how deep, we all bleed red… That we all walk on the same earth, feel the same sun, breathe the same air, share the same physical space, which essentially means that whether we are open to it or not, we are all a part of each other, we have all touched/felt each other in some way, shape or form… If we could see that we share more commonalities than differences maybe the next time we felt hate or looked down on someone, we would realize that at the core, because we are all “one people” we are actually looking down on a part of ourselves… Essentially, if we projected onto ourselves what we project onto others, the world as we know it would definately move with very different synergies.

  18. PJ • May 16, 2008 @ 2:21 PM

    I love the “I don’t agree with it” and “as long as it’s in my face” attitude. I for one am sick of hetero people making out in public…there’s a time and a place for that too…

    I think Jody is a role model for not only lesbians but to anyone in a relationship. Why is it that religious people are the ones that propogate hate? Isn’t it God’s duty to judge? not you and not some church. I think we are a diverse people and need to recognize that if it’s not your way…accept it and move on

    If you don’t agree with Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Two Spirited, etc…move to Iran and enjoy your life there with no freedom to think or live without the Theocrats…

    “If you don’t agree with Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Two Spirited, etc…move to Iran..” ……………….WTF! Why would I ever, EVER leave my country because a certain group of people came along and tried to change things? I never suggested that all gays and lesbians, etc. should move to Alcatraz did I? I don’t feel that this is a fight in any way and that we cannot all get along and live on the same continent! I just don’t agree with it and that is all. I don’t go out and search for gay people and cause trouble, burn down their homes and beat them up, etc. That’s the great thing about this side of the world…we are a free country and CAN have our own opinions and, if you don’t agree with that, PJ, then maybe you should move to Iran!! The world would be a very boring place if everyone was exactly the same…look, dress and act the same and have the same values and opinions, wouldn’t it?

  24. Poppa John's in Exile • May 16, 2008 @ 5:48 PM

    Who cares if she’s gay or not? I just think she did a great thing for herself by coming out a couple of weeks ago, so now she’s on the market and fully advertised for her next lesbian prospect…..
    She doesn’t live in my neighborhood, so she can be as queer as she pleases. She can even take a few of you with her, for all I care!!!

  25. Taffer • May 16, 2008 @ 7:01 PM

    1- gays and lesbians flaunt their sexuality no more or less than the woman who unbuttons her top to show cleavage and hikes up her skirt to show leg. The only difference is that heterosexuality is the “norm” and by reading some of the comments on here, it is evident that there are still people out there who believe in the “norm”. Anyone read Orwell’s “1984”? Conformity’s not all it’s cracked up to be.

    2- Newsflash guys: You can’t control people. Think what you think and do what you do. Share your opinions but remember that everyone is different and has the right to do as they please as long as they aren’t hurting anyone else without having people judge them, call them names and say that their lives, loves and relationships are invalid. How does mature, true love hurt anyone?

    3- If everyone would follow these rules we all learned in kindergarten, we would all live in a better place:

    “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”

    “Keep your hand and feet to yourself”

    “Eyes on your own paper.” ie) Mind your own business.

  26. Taffer • May 16, 2008 @ 7:08 PM

    My second comment was unclear. Apologies.

    Share your opinions but remember that everyone is different and has the right to do as they please as long as they arent hurting anyone else. No one should have to worry about having people judge them, call them names and say that their lives, loves and relationships are invalid. Love is love darn it.

    Taffer – I agree with you – especially about minding your own business. But…alas, I think the problem is, there are enough people out there in the world who are far more interested in other people’s business more then their own and not spending enough time fixing their own problems and in their own world.

  31. just me • May 17, 2008 @ 1:36 PM

    A break up between 2 people is generally sad no matter who they happen to be. It is really a shame that the only thing that some people can say or feel about is is anger. Jodi Foster, as well as anyone else, has the right to love who ever their heart is meant to love. The world would be a much better place if everyone would just live and let live but we all know that we don’t live in a perfect world. I don’t believe that any 2 people should “flaunt” themselves in public, but I also don’t feel that you should be ashamed of who you are. Be comfortable in the skin you are in.

  32. just me • May 17, 2008 @ 1:44 PM

    P.S. I we “hate” on or at the negitive people who really don’t or won’t have open minds then we are no better than them, and that would be a terrible place to be. If you want to live your life with high standards then you have to ignore the low standards in life.

  34. xray • May 17, 2008 @ 3:46 PM

    “just me” – a break up between two people is often a good thing. it depends on what foundation a relationship is based. many times people unite, homo or hetero, for the wrongest of reasons … and eventually things fall apart, and often badly. ever seen anyone enter a shelter for spousal/relationship abuse?

  35. kyn • May 17, 2008 @ 5:58 PM

    It baffles the mind. Why are people so hung up on same sex …anything?
    I thought we had grown away from that oppression.

    I know that minds are openning to acceptance a little more each day. I have to believe that. I was surprised at myself for reading these posts, as I have never in the past. But being a lesbian myself, and always curious about Jodi, the article caught my eye. What I didn’t expect was that her difficult situation right now has prompted nay-sayers into thinking that being gay has anything to do with what she is going through.

    I am frustrated with all the negativity that has oozed out in the aftermath of this article, and I am maybe even more frustrated with myself for getting once again caught up in celebrity gossip.

    Let’s get a little crazy here, and move away from gay-hate in this world, and maybe lobby or focus all that attention on something that really matters.
    Like say…off the top of my head…Africa. I dunno…the war. Are these crisis not infinitly more important than who is doing whom in hollywood and on which side of the proverbial fence do they sit.

    Moving on, and moving forward.

  36. kyn • May 17, 2008 @ 6:00 PM

    I wish Jodi all the best, and hope that she has wonderful supports behind her.

    Oh my God, you guys. Calm down. Nancy has just as much right as any of you to have, and to voice, her opinion. Those who are telling her off are the real haters because you are intolerant of anyone who’s opinion is different from your own. Now I’m going to post my opinion, and anyone who disagrees with it can challenge it, but please, use a little maturity.
    My personal opinion: I do not like anyone shoving their sexuality in my face, hetro or homo. That sort of thing is private. Be what you want to be, but don’t force it on me. I have gay friends, they do not shove their sexuality in my face, I do not shove mine in their face. I don’t like their lifestyle, but I am not going to tell them what to do. That doesn’t make me “afraid” or “phobic”, that makes me a person with an opinion.

  39. Nancy • May 17, 2008 @ 8:20 PM

    I am not a ‘hater’, as I have said, I just don’t agree with it. And Paige, I already said earlier that I will ALWAYS love my kids no matter what…I just don’t agree with it!

I don’t change my opinion to suit you and I don’t expect gays to change for me, plain and simple. Because my opinion differs from yours that makes me “stupid and closed minded”????? Voice your damn opinion on the subject and stop addressing your comments directly to me, HATER!!!

  43. Al John • May 18, 2008 @ 8:28 PM

    Trl I am sorry I have to agree with Melanie. I can not believe you have these kind of comments. The fact that you have a problem with 2 people of the same sex enjoying a relationship is obscene.

    Whats such a pity is that if your child becomes gay they will have a parent with such views as yours. Imagine being a child knowing what hate and shame their parents have on them because of who they fall in love with.

    Personally I have no problems with anyones sexuality. If everyone worked on their own problems and own lifes instead of judging others this world would be a hell of a better place.

  44. mandee • May 18, 2008 @ 8:43 PM

    ok basically, this thread isnt supposed to be about who agrees or disagrees with gay people. this is supposed to be about jodie foster and her girlfriend breaking up, which is terribly sad. but, since everyone is making it an issue i may as well state my opinion. there is nothing wrong with gay, or straight relationships. everyone does have their own opinion, but i think putting down anyone that is gay or stating that they shouldnt have the same rights as the rest of us, or they shouldnt be able to have their relationship in public, is just ridiculous. regardless of weather or not youre gay, youre going to have feelings. imagine if being GAY was the norm and being straight was the different. how would you feel if someone told you you couldnt kiss your husband/wife in public or hold hands just because you were different? there is no reason for anyone to discriminate because love is love, and its really no ones business but the 2 people it concerns. i think if god really objected to it, he wouldnt have made anyone gay ever. i dont think god judges people based on race, age, or sexuality. i have never once heard of a gay person saying they disagree with straight relationships, or try and say that we have no business having public displays of affection because THEY DONT AGREE with it. so i think everyone needs to learn from these people, if they dont judge us, who are we to judge them?

    Jodie Foster is an attractive, talented actress and a well-educated, well-spoken woman, and it’s sad that she and her friend have split, however…it’s much sadder in my view that she and her friend were “raising” Jodie’s two children together. Those kids deserve to grow up with a mother and a father, a woman and a man….children are not a social experiment. Gay people don’t choose to be gay so if that is the only way they can be happy, they deserve to be together, in peace, and please, in private. I do not agree that two people of the same sex can get “married” though! You can call a fish a bird all day long ; it’s still a fish.

    You are so fake, and I hope your gay friends know that that’s what you think!!!! Because if they new, they wouldn’t be your friends.

    What was it you said – “I dont like their lifestyle, but I am not going to tell them what to do. That doesnt make me afraid or phobic, that makes me a person with an opinion.”

    Aaahh no that make you a lier, and sadly a fake person. When you love someone you love them for who they are, lifestyle and everything. If you disagree then don’t bother being their friend, because that automatically proves you wont be able to be there 100% percent and who wants a friend that can’t commit all the way? And there is a difference between agreeing, or disagreeing with someone’s characteristics when the subject matter becomes larger than what it should…

    Because you could say you disagree with your friend being a bitch, but if she ever needed your support, you would be there. But when it come to larger things like sexuality (which people let face it, it still is to this very day a big deal, ask NANCY)
    you just said you disagreed with the lifestyle, which means to my understanding you will not support it, and if your friend needed your support you would not be able to give it to her, seeing as you would be (if you said yes) contradicting yourself!

    It scares me to know that there are friends like you around, and one sometimes falls for your lies and completely trusts in you!

    And NANCY pray, my love pray, because according to the BIBLE god said that he love all his creatures, and that one should love those we hate!!! Babe you just bought your ticket to hell!!! According to the religion that man himself helped write. This world is filled with liers, and people with opinions, and since we are on the topic couldn’t it have been that when the bible was written they would have stated their own opinions on how the world should really function?/??? Just a thought!!!!

  49. Pinkie • May 19, 2008 @ 1:45 AM

    If you believe that you were born to be gay or lesbian, does it matter what straight people think? I think that the time we live in focuses too much on sexuality and not enough on personality/or individuality. I really don’t care to know a person’s sexual orientation. I think it is a private matter and a person with self-respect/or class should not have to define themselves by their sexual orientation. Last but not least, opinions are like belly buttons, everyone has one.

  50. Pinkie • May 19, 2008 @ 2:06 AM

    Jodie Foster is classy and she maybe gay. She has chosen to be recognized for her work. I respect the fact she has kept her personal life – PERSONAL. Gay or straight that is someone who has a great deal of self-respect. I don’t go around talking about my sexual orientation or my relationship with my husband. It is personal. You might find out if you are my friend but I don’t advertise it.

  51. Father Alex • May 19, 2008 @ 11:29 AM

    All you people who proclaim others are going to hell are not religious. When God said “Thou shalt not take my name in vain”, that’s exactly what he meant – you do not use his name and declare someone else is going to be punished by God because you do not know what God is going to decide. It’s up to Him, not you and none of us know who’s going to hell or not.

    OK, I had no intention of posting my opinion because the topic degenerated so far from Jodie Foster and her break-up. I did not know Jodie Foster is gay, and that is the way it should be. She is a wonderful actress and that is all we need to know. However one post really pushed me to respond – how can you compare The Bible with Harry Potter! That is taking things way too far!! You may not believe in The Bible or go to church, but to ridicule and demean it to that extent makes you just as bad as you think anyone else is for their opinion about being gay.

    And, I never said you were dumb…because I don’t know you, just as you don’t know me. So don’t judge, please. My point here is that I don’t care about your spelling errors…we ALL make them. I just wanted to show you how it feels to be judged.

  67. Nunya • May 20, 2008 @ 6:42 PM

    Arent we all human beings? Gay, Straight, White, black, brown, whatever, who cares. We all are people. And most of these comments are IGNORANT! I hope the lot of you open your eyes to reality and humanity

    My eyes are open Somya…oops, I mean Nunya.

    Gayboy on May 19, 2008 12:23 am
    My dear, no I am not a liar, my friends know my opinion, I know theirs, but WE are all mature enough to not make it an issue. I go to coffee with my gay friends, no big deal. Now if they were sucking face in front of me, I’d be offended (as I would with my straight friends and their partners). YOU are an extremely intolerant person, you cannot tolerate the fact that I, or any others, have an opinion that differs from yours. So you just go ahead with your same sex relationship, it really doesn’t affect my life at all, and I will go on with my hetro relationship.
    And if my gay friends ever need me for anything, I’m there, because I love them for the person they are, not for the choices of sex partner they have. Do you understand now? Can you please try to see my point of view? I have viewed this issue from many angles and am very satisfied with the way I am living my life. If you are unwilling to try to see it through my eyes, then you are definitely intolerant. And Nancy and I were just simply stating our opinions. What is wrong with that? Are you intolerant of other peoples opinions unless they totally agree with you? That’s pretty childish.
    And if you want to do some soul searching in the bible, how about this verse, “man shall not lie next to man”. Check it out, it’s in there. So if you wanna go bible thumping man, you’re talking to the wrong chick.

    Thank you Father Alex!
    Oh, and by the way, the last post under “anonymous” was me, for some reason the computer wiped out my name.

  76. Lilliepop • May 21, 2008 @ 8:05 PM

    after reading this entire list of comments i have come to the same conclusion that i always come to – the whole soddom and gammorah thing in the bible was misinterpreted. 99 percent of christians and bible followers are just that followers. with christianity being an all or nothing contract between the believer and the Jesus well then just thinking about hating another person for not being like you makes you a sinner. I myself could care less about going to hell. i dont care one bit about the idea of not being in heaven with these christians. It doesnt matter because well as a christian you still don’t know if you’re going to heaven. you have to go on faith. i remember this because basically every single christian pretty much tells me that faith in believing in your heart no matter what. so therefore i shouldn’t think for myself. i shouldn’t question the imperfect humans and i should just follow blindly. Nancy – you are typical of an unthinking blindly following christian and you are proof that well i am not going to hell. because i dont think like you. You can have your opinion but hey just having that kind of thought in your mind is a sin. all things aside see the Zeitgeist movie and you will realize that well you should get over this whole – eew gays are icky!” thing.

    and by the way nancy not capitalizing is not the same as not spelling.

    More power to you Jodi Foster!

  77. tributegirl • May 21, 2008 @ 8:06 PM

    Oops, sorry Nancy, I’ve been away, took a little, much needed, family vacation. Didn’t go far, but the computer was no part of it! Oh, and by the way, keep up the comments, and keep posting your opinion, no matter what it is. That is what this venue is for!

  78. Alex • May 22, 2008 @ 9:24 AM

    Well, Lillipop, it’s difficult to misinterpret Bible passages such as these:

    ‘If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.’ (Leviticus 20:13)

    Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves
    nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

  79. Lilliepop • May 23, 2008 @ 2:40 PM

    First of all it was passed down by word of mouth for about 500 years. which means that well men in power got to decide what they wanted to tell. then it was finally put to paper. another group of men in charge decided what went onto paper in the bible for political reasons. then the book was translated from it’s many languages to english. so in essence it’s a very long game of telephone. By the way, those verses were about a group of people that was small in numbers. Procreation was of the utmost importance to keeping the people in existence. But hey, if you want to live by the word so much then cut off your hand for the sins it has commited is also in there. so it is not that difficult to misinterpret the bible when it has been rewritten and edited to suit the needs of People in charge. but hey Zealots just follow and never question. long after you and i are gone christianity will be gone. it’s always so convenient to quote one verse of the bible but forget about what Jesus taught. let he who is without sin cast the first stone. or hey how about this! Judge not lest ye be judged. None of that matters because you’re getting into heaven just for beleving that jesus died for your sins, right? You get the unconditional love for being born straight. you can commit any number of sins and not have to care. You just have to feign sorrow for the church to see because no one would really know. I on the other hand am going to hell because I was born gay. how very nice that your jesus makes it easy for you to keep the love out of your heart and judgement in your heart. the thought is just as much a sin as the doing but you know what most of the bible has been changed to suit man and not God.

    I don’t want to be in a heaven that would accept someone like you.

  80. tributegirl • May 24, 2008 @ 12:05 PM

    Riiiiiiiiiiiight. Ok, Lolliepop. It’s a darn good thing we got you to set us all straight, obviously you know something we don’t, you must have a direct line on your phone to God or something. Thank goodness, now we can all be saved by you!

  81. Lilliepop • May 24, 2008 @ 7:06 PM

    hey I don’t want to save anyone. free will is great that way. but you know what? to each his own, right? but chrStians don’t think that way. remember the crusades?

  82. Anonymous • May 24, 2008 @ 10:23 PM

    i don’t see how what any of you have said has anything to do with the original post. to be honest i feel a little dirty for having read all of these posts. needless to say it was refreshing to read so many different opinions on a subject that is and will continue to be split in two ways.

    On a side note, there is a number of you who write a great deal not only on this post, but on almost every post. Maybe if we(society as a whole) put forth more attention on our own lives, and what’s going on in the world, than the sexuallity of someone none of us have met and probably never will. people will stop reporting on this sort of stupid trivial celebrity nonsence, and actually report the news.

  83. Lilliepop • May 24, 2008 @ 11:17 PM

    yeah you’re right about that. I guess I was just stirring the pot

  84. aquasonik22 • May 27, 2008 @ 10:25 AM

    Well, there are some very interesting”Dissertations’ here. and I too’am one among many who are saddened’ to here of Jodies’personal affairs’ irregardless’
    of her ‘partners gender’ if it was a ‘He’my feelings would be no different’in that regard.
    Jodie” to you my Love & Admiration will continue’ for what’ & who you are ‘on screen’ and off’ and i must admit I had some thoughts
    that you

  85. aquasonik22 • May 27, 2008 @ 11:05 AM

    …sorry, as i was saying’ that you might “Lesbian”~
    but as i read these posts; some ‘funny some not’ it shows what “Religion” does to some people. I am grateful for what God’ has given most of us’ and that is the ‘ability’ to “Discern” what is the “Truth” and the ‘Free will to ‘choose’ a right or wrong ‘path’ in this life we are given’i believe ‘God’ is not as small’ as a man or a women’ but something that is a much deeper & mysterious’ and beautiful beyond belief’ an infinite and boundless “Wind” that ignites the ‘divinity’ in our spirits~some of us find it’ some of us…well i only wish them well’in their journey….yes,I’ve read the bible’ and have no disputes to what is written
    & it’s deeper purpose for all of us’ irregardless of which Faith we choose.And as for this gay marriage’ issue I say “Well, hell
    let the gay’s be just as miserable as the rest
    of America” Ha!~ i’d open up a Gay divorce’ court around the corner from city hall!~ LOL!
    Hey, come on now… i’m tryin’ not to be so heavy duty’ here and lighten up~the nay-sayers’and i truly try to leave the word ‘Hate
    out of my vocabulary’ and all or most of the ‘cliches'[did i spell that right?]hmmm??
    And back to Jodie Foster’ I’m sorry to hear of this break-up’or maybe they’ll make-up’ and we all know how Feckin’ Ffun! that can be.
    Well, My most humble wishes for the best results’ that Jodie could ever wish for!! that these 2 could ‘patch it up~ then again…
    hey damn’ we lesbos might stand a chance! ahh
    just wishful’ wishin’ OK’ bye all you loverlies’ see ya, i’ll stop in here once in a while…and see what’s up buttercups!~~~

  86. aquasonik22 • May 27, 2008 @ 11:11 AM

    oh yea’ let me give my apologies now to all of you who will ‘Edit’ my post’s/ really i’m
    OK with it~

    if i misspelled'[that don’t look right either]?? and i forgot to key in a word or two
    I’m sure you all know my ‘Drift’ or ‘meaning

    hope to catch some of you here nxt time>>>>>> BYE’

  87. Nancy • June 2, 2008 @ 9:20 AM

    Hey Lollipop, I’m not a Christian!! But YOU sound like quite the ‘bible thumper’…

    “and by the way nancy not capitalizing is not the same as not spelling”….WTF?…That makes no sense! I don’t really care about spelling errors I said. I was making a specific point to Anonymous, so get a grip. Like I said, we all make mistakes. As for you, aquasonic22, I could care less about your spelling mistakes or lack thereof, as well.

  88. tributegirl • June 3, 2008 @ 2:05 AM

    Well, I AM a Christian, I also have free will, and I also agree “to each his own”. Lollipop said that Christians don’t think that way. Well, apparently we do. Lollipop seems to think she (?) is an expert on the bible AND a mindreader too!

  89. Anonymous • June 3, 2008 @ 12:29 PM

    i hate how all of you are going of topic to religion and gay rights well i think that its a shame that jodie broke up with her girlfriend and i hate how some people are judging her on what a book says

  90. tributegirl • June 3, 2008 @ 2:49 PM

    I am not judging her by what the book says, I have free will, so I am judging her based on my own personal opinion. Don’t get me wrong, I love Jodie Foster, and if she is gay, fine with me. Not my cup of tea, but whatever.
    Lollipop is the one yacking about the bible.

    Nancy I have one question for you.
    What brought you to wanting to read up on Jodie Foster’s Break Up with her GirlFriend?
    If You do not agree with the life style why are you even reading about it?

    I agree you have the right to post your opinions no argument there.

    I’m just interested in knowing why you came to this sight?

  93. Anonymous • June 4, 2008 @ 11:16 PM

    shelly what are you talking about? these kids dont need a dad to have a good childhood what if there dad abused them? all that matters is that the parents can provide for them and love them not what there parents sexes are!

  94. Nancy • June 5, 2008 @ 9:54 PM

    Well Anonymous, first of all, thank you for accepting the fact that everyone has an opinion…even if it differs from others. I come to Tribute and post all the time. I read every article and usually comment on each. I do not agree with the lifestyle of gay people no, but Jodie Foster is an excellent actor and, as I said before, I do not think any less of her or her acting abilities. I am not a hater, I have my opinion on this subject and have spoken my piece on here about it, but I do not spread hate. There are alot of things in this world that I don’t agree with and some things that others don’t agree with either…I don’t expect anyone to change for me as I know I wouldn’t change for them. People just have different opinions of stuff and life goes on. The world would be very boring if there were no differences. This article would have been quite boring as well if everyone who commented had the same opinion.

    I have a question for you, as well. I am not the only one who commented about disagreeing with this lifestyle, so why did you specifically centre me out with your question?

  95. Anonymous • June 5, 2008 @ 11:56 PM

    Honestly,Because I noticed you were one of the people posting more than one comment and I just thought I would ask you.I’m fine with your Opinion.I do not share your opinion.But that is why yours is yours andmineismine.All I have to say and this is to everyone.I as a lesbian would never make the choice to be a lesbian its just who I am.I would never make the Choice to be a minority and hated by so many people.I’m speaking with experience here.
    For Me this was no choice , I fought it for years. I am who I am, annd thats ahardworking American, who hurts noone, pays her bills, pays her taxes, and has a very loving Girlfriend.I’m going to leave you with something I learned very young.If you have nothing nice to say, maybe you should say nothing at all.Good Night Everyone

  96. tributegirl • June 6, 2008 @ 7:45 AM

    Hey, anonymous? I just gotta say, I like how you said all that. You are very honest, and respectful. On this issue, I share Nancy’s views, but I don’t hate anyone for being who they are. If you are the type of person you portrayed here, then you remind me of my gay friends, they just are who they are, their sexuality isn’t a big secret, but it’s also not out on display. Same as me being hetro, no secret, but not on display.
    Even though your comment wasn’t directed to me, I still appreciate your honesty and your respectful nature.

  97. Anonymous • June 6, 2008 @ 7:02 PM

    Thank You.

    I am who I portray.
    I have nothing against anyone for their thoughts. I live my life the best I can and I honestly feel we all can learn from eachothers thoughts and opinions.
    We may never agree, but we can take away thoughts from one another.
    Have a Good Day 🙂
