Lesbirdians? Turns Out Animals Can Be Gay, Too!

Not sure how I missed this one last week, but according to a New York Times Magazine article, animals can be gay, just like humans. The Laysan albatross, which is considered one of the most monogamous species of birds in the animal kingdom, is not always as heterosexual as scientists once believed. As it turns out, many of these lovebirds are lesbians, or … lesbirdans? (Sorry, had to.) But the albatross isn’t the only example of a homosexual creature in the animal kingdom. Various forms of same-sex sexual activity has been observed in over 450 animal species including flamingos, dolphins, bison, beetles warthogs, koalas, and orangutans. So, basically, almost any kind of animal imaginable can be gay, although it’s less common in some species than others. And scientists have been keeping this kind of under the radar. Why?

Girl Talk: The Phone Call Rule

At brunch on Sunday, my friend Liza explained to me what she calls “the phone call rule.”

“Now that I’m out of the ‘one-night stand’ game, I have a rule that if I hang out with a guy that I’m dating, even casually, and we engage in intimate activities, I tell him that I would appreciate a phone call from him the next day.”

“Really?” I asked, my jaw kind of dropping.

“Yeah. I politely tell him that a phone call the next day represents respect,” she said. “It doesn’t have to be a long phone call, or anything. I just want him to ask me if I’m doing OK or tell me he had a good time or whatever. Is this really too much to ask?”

My first reaction was, “Yes.” Then again, this is coming from a girl who felt weird asking a guy I had just engaged in “intimate activities” with to help me find a cab at 3 a.m. Keep reading »

Decode My Dream: A Confusing Reunion With An Old Flame

I am curious about a dream I had last night. Before I share the dream, I should give you the background.

In college, I had a near-affair with a close friend. Unfortunately, the timing and where we were in life was all wrong and we ended up severing all ties in 2003. We got back in touch this past October. He was going through some difficult things at that time, and said that he wasn’t very good at maintaining relationships. It has in fact been very difficult to communicate with him at all on any subject, no matter how impersonal. In December, he informed me that he “couldn’t offer me the kind of closeness [I] wanted.” Note: what I wanted was never discussed. But he said he didn’t want to stop talking altogether. I have not heard from him since, nor do I expect to in the future.
