QUEER VOICES

Whitney Mixter of "The Real L Word" sounded off on news that a lesbian character was joining the official "Star Wars" canon on an installment of The Rubin Report this week.

On the show, Mixter joked to host Dave Rubin that the new character's name, Moff Mors, could be a tongue-in-cheek reference to the female anatomy.

"I want it to be like a giant muff," she quipped. "The whole hot lesbian thing has been done so much. I want this to be like a menacing muff that eats things!"

Earlier this week, Big Shiny Robot reported that Moff Mors, described as "an Imperial who has made some very serious mistakes" who "also happens to be a lesbian," would feature prominently in Paul S. Kemp's new "Star Wars" novel, titled Lords of the Sith.

Mixter joked that Moff may not actually be that unique in a galaxy far, far away: "C3P0 was a total queen! I think [he and R2D2] had a relationship."

After several successful years with The Young Turks, The Rubin Report has a new home on RYOT News.
