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.”

Ever been five beers into a happy hour with your friends, spot a girl across the bar, and suddenly wonder… “Hey isn’t that my ex’s ex-girlfriend?” Well, my fellow beer goggle dykes, never fear. Yup. There’s an App for that.
By sharing these private images, Ellen and Portia make the idea of same-sex marriage and relationships seem less scary. Radical? No. Progress? Definitely. Maybe Ellen wasn’t joking about world domination.

You’ve heard of the Hipstamatic application for iPhone but now it’s time for the Lesbomatic! Digital photography has never looked so queer! This iPhone application turns your plain pictures into lesbian works of art.

Ummm, I have a slight confession to make. Technically speaking, I’m not ‘officially’ out yet. I mean, everybody with half a brain cell’s gotta know by now (seriously, I could tick off most of the things on our Stuff Lesbians Like list), but I’ve never actually broadcast it to the masses.
You know what lesbians lack in their lives? No – not that. Pressure. That’s right. We are all just gliding along with no stress at all. We never agonize over decisions, never feel regret. Heck, we don’t think at all! We just float from thing to thing with the ease (and intellect) of Tarzan swinging on his rope swing. Fortunately, other lesbians are willing to help!
This is really in honor of Chu and Yip, as their conversations about their mothers are fantastic. Chu’s recent posts on her facebook were the last straw in my decision to become Asian. I have always dabbled in the Asian through sushi bars, living in Southern California, and using chopsticks. It just isn’t enough anymore. I would like to be Asian, and I present my reasons why.

You may have noticed that the post started off with a complex dilemma, and quickly moved on to partying, cheating and schlongs. I’m just following Ilene.
