Woman Crush Wednesday: Jo from “The Facts of Life”
In honor of National Coming Out Week, my WCW is Jo from “The Facts of Life,” played by the ageless Nancy McKeon. It’s safe to say an entire generation of lesbians had a crush on the jean jacket wearing, motorcycle riding “tomboy” Jo, and I was no exception.
Back then I had no idea why I was so drawn to Jo…I thought maybe we were tomboy soulmates. Now I know it’s because Jo was fucking hot.
To this very day, long-haired brunettes render me defenseless. I can thank Jo Polniaczek for that.
