Finding Out Victoria’s Secret: An Underwear Shopping Expose

By in Fashion, Straight People

I shop almost exclusively at the ‘mens’ section in stores, but (apparently)looking much like an androgynousteenage boy myself, I manage to get away without people acting like I’m out of place. Dare I go to the changing rooms to try anything on though… One shop assistant actually forcefully barred me from the ladies room once, but I think he was just trying to get me to flash him ;)

By in Straight People, Stuff Lesbians Like

You know the feeling, you’re out with a group of all straight friends and something gay comes up. Immediately the conversation stops and all eyes go to you; not because your friends feel awkward, nor are they afraid they’ve offended you. They want answers. Let Grace Gatsby walk you through it.

This is a Story of Boy Meets Girl, Then Girl Meets Girl

By in Awkward, Dating, Straight People

Pursuing the same girl as your straight male friend: a good idea? Or is this on par with using an electric toothbrush (with the head still attached) as a vibrator? Bueller?

Awkward situations where non-gays try to relate and miss the point entirely.

By in Awkward, Straight People

Grace Maxwell lists some unpleasant situations queer women go through while socializing with non-queer folks. Homophobia? No. The mildly annoying, awkward, and just plain “…” things. Nothing major to start a revolution over, but enough to write a blog post about.

Attack of the lesbian clones?

By in Awkward, Parenting, Straight People

It’s that time of year when the air is crisp and the leaves are beginning to fall gently onto the ground in colorful heaps.  The birds are flying south and the squirrels are returning to school. Did I say squirrels? That was a total slip of the typing fingers – I meant  children…the children are returning to school. With the new school year upon us, those of us lesbians who…

Inaccurate Assumptions

By in Culture, Straight People

There are many inaccurate assumptions about our community from outsiders, and thankfully most are thought but not said because well that’s just not “kosher.” Every now and then someone says something, and I become the angry lesbian and react before I think. My girlfriend and I had a gay-overloaded weekend consisting of the NC Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and an Amy Ray concert. A weeken…

The Grass is Always Greener…(or bush, more accurately)

By in Culture, Dating, Straight People

You are having a lovely microbrew with one of your straight friends when she begins to tell you about her relationship troubles. She tells you that her boyfriend/husband doesn’t do anything around the house. He doesn’t cook. He doesn’t clean. She asks if it would kill him to wash a dish now and then and, though you know it’s rhetorical, you answer “noR…

To Prom or not to Prom

By in Culture, Straight People

To Prom or not to Prom? The words constantly echoed through my head like Hamlet’s eminent soliloquy. As the months turned into weeks before the dance, I realized I had to stop putting off my decision and make a plan of action. Posters were slapped up around school with grinning boys in tuxedos with their arms hung loosely over the shoulders of girls in rhinestone-studded frilly gowns. The a…

Let’s go, Thunderdykes!

By in Culture, Straight People

As the Midwest dyke correspondent (well, conservative Midwest – Chicago is a beacon of hope), I have recently had the wonderful pleasure of having to go through the coming out process all over again. My southern Iowa family decided to decline meeting my wife as she is the “issue” they don’t want to address. This, along with almost everything else, got me thinking. I would like to propose we…
