Love Is TRENDING, Thanks To Sarah Paulson And Holland Taylor

Updated on January 29, 2017

Love Is Kind


Love Looks Good On Them

Whenever I'm feeling a little like the world sort of sucks, I hit Twitter and head specifically for either Holland Taylor's or Sarah Paulson's Twitter feed.

Sounds random, doesn't it?

There's a method to my madness. I'd heard of both actresses for years, and became interested in both when I first started writing articles for various agencies online. I remember when the entertainment world seemed to be in something of a frenzy when Taylor admitted that she was a lesbian, and she was so damned casual about it I thought, "This is wonderful. Why shouldn't she be chill about something she's known forever?" Being gay doesn't define who someone is; the content of their character does, so it was with a great deal of happiness for Ms. Taylor that I heard she was out, because I firmly believe that people should have the right to be unafraid of what other people think of who they love - call me crazy that way.

When it was finally revealed that Holland Taylor's girlfriend was, in fact, Sarah Paulson from American Horror Story, I was happy for them both, not that it matters. Neither woman knows me, so I have no personal investment into whether or not they are together, but I'm always happy for two people who somehow find happiness with each other, and these two seem as though they are genuinely happy.

But their Twitter feeds...

I've never read such expressions of genuine appreciation for someone. Reading their tweets to and about each other are almost blissful because the happiness between them seems so genuine.

Do you know how rare that is to find?

She says she's the "luckiest person in the world" to be with Paulson, and has said that the relationship "makes everything else make sense."

In a world where the USA is led by a man who's working on building a wall that he insists Mexico is paying for, has implemented a travel ban where effectively no one from the Middle East can come into the States, and may or may not be involved in a happy relationship with his wife (remember the video?), it's about time love should be trending.

Intelligence And Love

For her part, Sarah Paulson also tweets "I love you," in addition to a few cute pics of the couple together (their New Year's pic is sweet and cute!), but I just think it's so amazing that two strong, intelligent and talented women found each other and take both solace and comfort in being together. Seeing news about the two of them and how genuinely happy they seem somehow warms my heart, and it reminds me that in spite of there being so much cynicism, darkness and generally things to be pessimistic about these two women are together and have been enjoying each other for some time. Happiness such as that found seemingly with a couple like Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson needs to be embraced and cherished wherever it may be found.

There is far too little of that sort of happiness in the world, and it needs to be sprinkled everywhere. Paulson and Taylor both take opportunities to be open about their love, with each of them adorably giving each other shoutouts whenever they can.

Could you imagine what our world would be like if we all took the time to be that warm and loving with each other? What relationships would look like? There would likely be far less strife in the world if we were allowed to be open about how we felt and about whom. Everyone has an absolute right to love and be loved, and it's such an amazing feeling to see that and hear it, both from the perspective of being in such a relationship and from "observing" it play out through the media.

Yes, I enjoy both actress' Twitter feeds because they also post very intelligent and thoughtful posts about the current - and sad - political situation in the United States, among other issues, but what strikes me as most warm is their tweets to or about each other. Even in their interviews - and both have been through many, given their respective successes on Broadway, in film, and on television - they are warm and effusive.

At the 2016 Emmy Awards in September, Paulson was wrapping an interview with E! when she said, “Hi, Holland — Holland Taylor, if you’re watching, I love you,” before she went on to thank Taylor again when she accepted the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.

““If I’m watching…?? If I’m WATCHING??? YES, I’m watching–!!! good LORD! … I LOVE you!!!” Taylor later responded on Twitter.

If everyone could only feel that comfortable expressing their love for each other.
