Girl On Girl: Tinder, Modern Love & Watery Maybes

There’s an important point to be made about how easy it is to ghost people or cancel plans now. We now say no at a lower emotional cost. That means we can say yes more.

Girl On Girl: Why Are Lesbians Always Friends With Their Exes?

A few months ago, I was trying to find something to do on a Saturday night after my initial plans fell through. I scrolled through my recent texts to search for someone who lived in New York and didn’t work on weekends. On an average day, I text anywhere between 20 to 30 people. Thi…

Girl On Girl: The Inequality In Being Outed

If you were anywhere on the internet in the past four days, you probably read something about Gawker’s outing of a C-level executive at one of the biggest media companies in the world. In case you missed it, Gawker published the details and text messages of the executive trying to hire a male escort during…

Girl On Girl: The Impermanence Of Celebrity Sexuality

Remember when Paris Hilton’s Sidekick was hacked and topless photos of her kissing a girl leaked online? Probably not.

Girl On Girl: When Gay Marriage Becomes Marriage

When huge things happen in our world, we always remember where we were when we heard the news. “Where were you when gay marriage was legalized?” will quickly become the new “Where were you when the Beyonce album dropped?” As for me, I had just gotten off of the subway and was at a crosswalk…

Girl On Girl: Why We Never Talk About Male Sexual Fluidity

“Girls can hook up with each other and it’s fine, but you suck one dick – ONE DICK – and you’re gay”.

Girl On Girl: Sexual Ambiguity Seems More Fun

When I was 13, I decided to become a vegetarian until I realized I loved shrimp cocktail too much, so I became a pescatarian instead. There were things I missed, like buffalo wings and (obviously) tacos, but the most trying time in my vegetarianism was when I went on a month-long trip where the only vegetarian food…

Girl On Girl: Lesbian Characters In Hollywood Blow

This weekend, $69.2 million worth of people (including me) saw “Pitch Perfect 2.” I love the franchise and I feel obligated to support my sort of doppelganger, Anna Kendrick, even though every scene where she kisses that dude makes me feel weirdly uncomfortable. As one friend puts it, “Every time Anna Kendrick kisses a man,…

Girl On Girl: I Am Not For Male Consumption

A couple weeks ago, some guy tweeted at Janelle Monae telling her to be sexier and to not dress so androgynously. What resulted was one of the most perfect and succinct clapbacks: “Sit down,” Monae tweeted back. “I’m not for male consumption.” I feel this, we all feel this. If you are a woman anywhere,…

Girl On Girl: Questioning Monogamy

I’m a hopeless romantic, but in the last six months, I’ve had a drastic shift in what love means to me. I’ve let go of the idea that love is an intense and demanding force. It doesn’t need all of my attention and it doesn’t mean things have to happen “now or never.” I’ve learned…

Girl On Girl: The Myth Of Lesbian Bed Death

One of the things about being a little different from society’s standard is that you tend to seek out and consume the kinds of things that you see your reflection in. This is why “The L Word” stayed on the air for as long as it did. This is also why Jews still go to…

Girl On Girl: RIP Lesbian Bars

I went to my first gay bar when I was 18. This was also the night that I discovered Four Lokos when the gas station was sold out of the other disgusting malt liquor energy drinks. My gay male best friend and I split a can and, with our designated driver, drove an hour from…

Girl On Girl: On Tinder & Women Objectifying Other Women

I have 876 matches on Tinder. I love Tinder. I’ve met some of my favorite people via Tinder, but sometimes, Tinder feels cheap. That feeling creeps up on me when it’s late at night and I’ve just swiped left on 20 people. That feeling also creeps up on me when five people send me the…

Girl On Girl: Casual Dating Sucks No Matter What Gender You’re Into

There’s a thought process that being a lesbian is easier. Because women understand other women, they communicate better, and they’re exempt from the patriarchy. Yeah, right.

Girl On Girl: On The Death Of Lesbian Bars

I had to say goodbye to one of the most intrinsic parts of my life this last year. It was something that was there on my darkest days, my most celebrated moments and during nearly every major life event. It was there when I took repeated shots of courage and came out to my dad,…

Girl On Girl: Dinner Table Talk For Lesbians & Their Possible Sperm Donors

When you’re in a committed relationship, it’s inevitable you will be asked by friends, among other people, if you plan on having children. When you’re in a committed lesbian relationship, it’s inevitable you’ll be offered your friends’ sperm.

My wife and I have been married six months and I’m not sure if it’…

Girl On Girl: Finally, Lesbian Relationships Make For Juicy Tabloid Fodder!

It makes me really happy that people are speculating about Rosie O’Donnell’s love life, that she’s in People magazine talking about how she met her girlfriend at a Starbucks. And The National Enquirer, that trashy rag, wrote an entire story recently about how Portia and Ellen don’t want kids. They literally took one idea from…

Girl On Girl: The Joke’s On You

I feel so bad for “Entourage” star Kevin Dillon right now. He’s hurt because of a joke Jane Lynch made while hosting the Emmy Awards last weekend. He said what Jane did was “unfair,” because it is just not true!

What Jane said: “A lot people are very curious as to why I’m…

Girl On Girl: What Goes Down At A Lesbian Bachelorette Party

I feel like I’ve been writing about weddings a lot, but I guess it’s just that time of year. I had my first experience buying bachelorette accessories for a lesbian wedding this month, as the first one I attended was my own, so I didn’t buy anything for myself. But for my best friend, I…
