Rumors have abounded about Lindsey Lohan’s on going relationship with girlfriend Samantha Ronson.
To date, neither Lohan nor Ronson have commented upon their relationship. Ms Lohan has made it clear that she wishes to keep her private life private. While Ms Ronson has flatly refused to deny the rumors. According to some in the media, Lohan and Ronson will be finally announce their love for each other publicly in the near future at a ‘lavish LA bash.’
According to Rav Singh of News of the World, Lohan and Ronson would like to have a child, and have been in discussion for some time. Also according to Singh, Lohan hopes that having a child will help her through recovery. Lohan, 22, and Ronson, 31, have apparently discussed asking one of Lohan’s ex’s provide the requisite male contribution for the pregnancy.

O’Reilly, Hannity and Limbaugh will be out in force over this story, have no doubt about that. While one could argue that having a child will not help someone recover from alcohol and drug abuse (though a loving and stable relationship will), I would lay bets that this trio of Conservative bobble heads won’t be focusing on that at all.
O’Reilly will, undoubtedly, be focusing his dirty old man mind on the images of three way sex between Lohan, Ronson and the father of their child. After all, this is something that he has shown a great deal of interest in. That, and falafels. Hannity will probably be sneering his way through comments about how same-sex couples harm children, and Limbaugh will lambaste us with his sanctimonious pomposity about how Lohan is a train wreck and a ‘good example of what being lesbian does to young people.’
They have already done a stellar job attacking Lohan and Ronson for their rumored relationship, which they wish to keep private. How often will they talk about how Lohan having a baby will corrupt the minds of young teens? And yet, not a single one has dared to question what having a pregnant teenager as part of the potential second family is going to do to encourage teen pregnancy, especially since the father of Bristol Palin’s child has publicly stated he never wants children. They have been great about how this is a private matter, and yet they have drooled like wild animals while reporting on every detail of Lindsey Lohan’s life. Miss Palin’s pre-marital sex is swept under the rug to choruses of how ‘she is doing the right thing’, and ‘isn’t she just great for marrying the father’. But for Lohan and Ronson, who have publicly expressed affection for each other, and appear to be in a strong and stabilizing relationship, their decision to have a child at some point will be resoundingly denounced. The Conservative pack will attack these two as being immoral and encouraging immorality without respect for the privacy they now ask for, and hold Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston up as paragons of morality
O’Reilly, Hannity, Limbaugh, and the throngs of paparazzi and Conservative ‘commentators’ who line up behind them, will undoubtedly make some mention about Lohan and Ronson wanting to have a child. True or not, they will leave a streak of what we can only hope is drool behind them as they run around speculating on everything. They will never think about how they are hypocrites for respecting the request of a fellow Conservative, a request that has been honored even by the Liberals, and yet ignoring the requests of others to be left in private. While it is hard to tell if the interest in this story will be because of Lohan’s stardom, or because there is a lesbian relationship wrapped in, or both, the reality is that Lohan and Ronson deserve the same privacy that we should all enjoy. If Palin and Johnston’s lives should be kept out of the spotlight, so should Lohan and Ronson’s; however, it is not likely to happen. Expect the slobbering throng of bobble-headed Conservative commentators to be all over this story. It is a woeful double-standard, and one that is lamentably damaging to both Lohan and Ronson, and one that is all too familiar for the LGBTI community.
It is lamentable that Lohan and Ronson, who seem to be so beneficial to each other, will be harassed and ridiculed by men like O’Reilly, while the relationship of Palin and Johnston is off limits.
Never mind that Bristol Palin’s pregnancy flies in the face of her mother’s, Sarah Palin, public and private morality, and that neither Lohan nor Ronson are involved in politics or policy.
