Stuff Lesbians Like Part 124: Reply-All-colism

By in Culture, Mindless chatter, Stuff Lesbians Like

What really makes a lesbian more excited than a paparazzo in room full of Kardashians is when she receives a mass email announcing a night on the town or a house party. This is not because she will get to drink cocktails with her friends and thirty other people she barely knows but pretends to be best friends with. It means that she will be able to solidify her position in the entourage by announcing her presence and expressing her thoughts to a built-in audience by pressing “reply all.”

Interview with Rose Rowe and Renee Olbert of Seeking Simone

By in Blogs

Seeking Simone is a web series that follows Simone Selkin’s bumbling attempts to date her way through Toronto, and the first episode of the second season recently premiered.

The Dinah 2011: Day One

By in The Dinah 2011

After fourteen hours of being airborne and being not so airborne in the longest layover ever at LAX, I finally touched down in Palm Springs at 7:30 PT last night and raced over to the comedy show at the Riviera, which was already in progress. 90 degrees, clear skies, palms trees lining the streets.

Stuff Lesbians Like Part 123: Identifying other lesbians by who they are dating or sleeping with within 30 seconds of introducing or meeting them

By in Stuff Lesbians Like

The most important element of a lesbian’s identity is the last known person she was sleeping with or dating. The sooner everyone knows the last person you’ve played tonsil hockey with, the more you are truly understood. The world is a cold and unforgiving place, and everyone wants to be understood. Help your new friend understand you. You will be better off in the long run.
