UPDATE 5/24/15: A key piece of evidence is a video interview that Sandra Bullock gave in 1989, way before she was famous, in which she looks disturbingly like a man in drag, and where she uses flamingly gay theater kid mannerisms and facial expressions. The original webpage that I linked to, at ET Online, has been removed in its entirety, not just the video clip. Thankfully there is a copy of it at YouTube: watch it here.
Perhaps the original was just one of those webpages that the hosts decide to remove after awhile to free up space, or perhaps Sandra Bullock's publicists are doing their damnedest to erase all evidence of her man-in-drag identity from the internet. [End of update]
While investigating the gay rumors about Ryan Reynolds on Google Images, I stumbled across a number in which he's shown with Sandra Bullock. Not being much of a contempo movie fan, my image of her is somewhat hazy -- more from 1994, when my friends and I saw Speed about 40 times that summer. Something looked a bit off about her, so I did a separate image search for her...
Holy shit, dudes, those pictures demolished my gaydar, like there's no "11" high enough on the dial to register how flaaaaaming she comes off. And it's not just a picture here or there -- every one either reads as a nervous gay wreck struggling to keep his poise and not be found out, or outright flaming theater kid hysterical emotional ejaculation. Then I found pictures of her when she was a child and a teenager, and the impression is even stronger then. Hang with me if you want to see just how warped the modern movie industry icons are, or bail now and spare yourself the brain-bleaching you'd need to unremember what you're about to see.
Side note: normally I'd refer to male-to-female transsexuals as "he." It just sounds jarring to be told that a news item is about a male who believes he's female, and to keep hearing "she" "she" "she". In this case, though, it would be more jarring to hear "he" referring to Sandra Bullock. So I'm going to stick with calling S.B. "she".
Again, the point of this series is not to feed our lurid fascination with celebs. I could care less about any of them. The point is rather to uncover how pervasive the homosexual influence has been in the pop culture of the past 20 years, for better or worse (mostly worse). They don't just make movies; they use their vast cultural influence to try to mold the public's perceptions of what the world is like, and how it ought to be. And it would be hard to point to a more influential Hollywood actress nowadays than S.B.
Has anyone else thought the same thing I did? Most definitely, and it's such an unlikely thing to think about a major actress. If so many people are independently wondering the same way-out-in-left-field thing about her, can we all be wrong?
Google's auto-complete thing only gives four answers these days. But merely typing in "was sandr" gives a fourth answer of "was sandra bullock born a man" -- wow, good guess, Google! It's almost uncanny how you leapt to that conclusion from one and a half words. Try "is sandra bullock" -- no luck there, but try "is sandra bullock a" -- "man" is the first answer, ahead of "republican," "scientologist," etc. Even when you use "an," where the next word should begin with a vowel, the third answer shows that Google still thinks you actually meant to ask is she a "man." How about "is sandra bullock r" -- "really a man" is the second answer, behind "racist" and ahead of "rescued in gravity" and "related to seth bullock". And "sandra bullock ad" -- "adam's apple" on the third answer. Glad to know I'm not the only one here.
Now onto the pictures. Please, do an image search for her name and wade through the evidence yourself, it'll blow your mind if you have an even halfway functioning gaydar. Note her inability to form a normal adult smile, with the lip corners pulled back and up, with only the top row of teeth (or none) showing, with the outer corners of the eyes crinkled, and with raised cheeks pushing up the eyes into a squint. Every one of her expressions looks like an infantilized Peter Pan queer, including her attempt to look seductive -- which reads more like a small child aping a femme fatale movie star, coming off campy and vampy.
Nervous gay laugh: here and here. Note much space visible under top row of teeth, lips pulled sideways rather than back-and-up -- center of top lip is clearly above the height of the corners.
"I've been a bad widdle boy" smile: here and here. Note lips pressed together with more wide-open eyes than squinty-crinkled eyes.
Gay bedroom eyes: here, here, and especially these two here and here (oops, an earlier version had a third pic that was probably Natalie Portman). Forehead bent slightly forward, narrowed eyes, or at least drooping upper eyelid, plus subtly raised eyebrows, blatantly and obviously asking a question -- "So... you feel like... y'know?" Real women are never that direct and obvious. If they do wear those eyes, it's part of a kabuki face / hammed-up performance, whereas S.B. is making these eyes sincerely. That's how she truly feels a seductive glance would look coming from a real woman. Closeted gay male celebrities always make these eyes too.
Can't be gay without some kiddie surprised eyebrows raised straight up and/or mouth agape: here, here, and here.
Over-the-top eager intensity when holding her adopted kid: here. Note the lack of a nurturing instinct, as that's not the kind of face a new mommy ever makes. Compare to homo blogger Perez Hilton and infant son here.
These facial expressions are the most important to establish that she is gay, not merely mannish-looking for a woman. Specifically, a gay male. But she does also look mannish, unlike the boyish queers --
Angular jaw: here and every other picture. Thick/wide neck with Adam's apple: here, here, and here. Jutting brow ridge / recessed eyes: here and here. Man hands to end all man hands: here, here, and here. Man calves: here. A few man-woman gestalt pictures: here and here (is that Christian Slater driving the bus in Speed?).
Now for the before-she-was-big evidence, which would seem to leave little room for doubt. Here is a must-watch interview (dead link fixed) from 1989 about her role as the new Bionic Woman (if only they knew). Like I said, no deviance dial can go high enough to measure the full shock of all those 'mo mannerisms. Was the interviewer told not to ask "So, uh.... you're a dude, right? Why should you get to play a woman?"
Here she is sometime in the late '80s or early '90s (obvious neck, jaw, chin, and brow). Here are a few with her looking like a flaming theater kid on the cheerleading squad, and her prom date apparently oblivious of her obvious Adam's apple and man jaw. Here she is making that gay seduction face as early as high school. A high school yearbook picture showing a boy with Farrah Fawcett hair and a sweater covering his Adam's apple. Finally, here is a gallery to click through of her as a teenager, clearly showing a teenage boy's face and hands.
In fact, there are pictures of S.B. wearing frilly dresses and long hair cut like a girl's as early as her pre-pubescent childhood -- here and here -- meaning she must have felt this inclination from a very young age.
If she is a male-to-female transsexual, she would fall into the category discussed by J. Michael Bailey as very effeminate gay men who have been that way from childhood. She clearly had hormone treatments around the time of puberty, since she looks way more feminine than a normal teenage or 20-something boy would have. Still, it looks to have affected her body shape and fat deposition more than her skeletal structure, prompting lots of inquiring minds to ask if she was born with an X and a Y chromosome.
So judge for yourself -- is America's Sweetheart actually made of slugs and snails and puppy dog tails?
