RIP, Estelle Getty

I just read the news that Estelle Getty, of “Golden Girls” fame, passed away early this morning.

I was never a big fan of “Golden Girls,” but I know plenty of people (read: gay men) who adored that show, and loved Estelle Getty’s character in particular.

  1. Its terrible isn’t Amy? The minute you tell someone you love the Golden Girls, they label you a Gay Man. I guess I will never understand the world today.

    **goes see what my boyfriend is up too.

  2. Whipping out another fake stat, I’d have to say that 80% of all “Golden Girls” fans are gay men. Everyone knows that. Sure, there may be 20% who aren’t gay men that are fans – but MOST fans are gay men. And those men LOVE Estelle Getty.

  3. 80%? That is a bit too high.

    Lets break it down. 10 people in a room that like the show Golden Girls… 8 of those people would have to be gay. My family alone would contradict those numbers… we used to watch is as a family.. a family of 5. Of that 5 only 1 became gay… thats about 20%. No Fuzzy Math here.

    However, you are correct on one count… Of that 20%.. Yes, they/I LOVE ESTELLE GETTY
