That whorish media (Ava and C.I.)

Katharine Hepburn had repeated affairs with women.

Not just one woman, women.


And yet . . .

Spencer Tracey was the love of her life, Barbara Walters declared in a 1991 20/20 'report.'

Diane Sawyer repeated the same lie in her 1992 PRIMETIME 'report.'

Reality: Katharine Hepburn was a lesbian.

Great love of her life?

Wouldn't that be Laura Harding?

What can make it in print apparently can't make it on air to this day.


Or maybe it would be Claudette Colbert?

Triva: Name the then teen queen whose career ended when she had the temerity to shred the illusions of Claudette to Claudette.

Spencer Tracy?

The great love of Kate Hepburn's life?

Hey, Bo Derek, you got a comment on that?

Don't worry, Bo knows why we're asking.

Many people do.

No, we're not accusing Bo of sleeping with Tracy.

He had a lot of affairs though.

He beat up a lot of women.

But, after he began lodging on George Cukor's estate, he found a sort of calm, if not acceptance, with his inner demons via male tricks.

Two years ago, Larry Kramer told THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, "Hepburn and Spencer Tracy were both gay. They were publicly paired together by the studio. Everyone in Hollywood knows this is true, but of course I haven't seen it printed anywhere."

The media is perfectly comfortable repeating Hepburn's lies.

They're far less comfortable about exploring what really happened and what sort of internalized homophobia Hepburn operated from.
