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’s that fact…

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 a lesbia…

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…

Girl On Girl: 5 Things I’m Not Allowed To Do Because I’m A Lesbian

This week I've had a few reminders of the rules that exist for gay girls like me in American society. But because I'm an optimist, I'd like to look the bright side of things I can't do in public.

Girl On Girl: Being A Lesbian Isn’t “Easier”

I know I’m lucky to have it as easy as I do. I’m a lesbian, which means I don’t have to put up with any crap from men. In fact, I’m exempt from patriarchy, and women are just so easy! I don’t have a care in the world, being gay. I don’t have to worry…

Girl On Girl: What’s Real About “The Real L Word”?

Reality TV is a tricky medium. It claims to be a realistic portrayal of the people (“characters”) and themes (“storylines”) it pieces together in each episode, but viewers are often left wondering how much of it was all for the cameras. So when a show is supposed to be a “real” portrait of a subset…

Girl On Girl: My Very Lesbian Wish List

I don't hide the fact that the holidays are not my favorite time of year. Christmas does not make me think of tinsel-covered trees and red and green wrapping paper. It makes me think of crowded stores, overpriced gifts and too much family time. Plus, it falls right around the coldest and darkest days of…

Girl On Girl: 8 Things I Miss About Being Straight

A few weeks ago, I wrote about all the things I love about loving women. A lot of commenters wrote that some of the things I listed can be found in straight relationships, too. This got me to thinking about what—if anything—I miss about being with dudes. Don't get me wrong, it was a big…

Girl On Girl: How To Avoid Difficult Topics At Thanksgiving And Stuff Your Face In Peace

I spend most of Thanksgiving milling around an overheated room holding a glass of wine and making conversation with aunts, great aunts, second cousins, third cousins, fourth cousins twice removed and the great uncle of the neighbor down the street. At this year's turkey-chomping fiesta, only about one in 10 of the people in the…

Girl On Girl: 8 Reasons I Love Being A Lesbian

I know that too often I write about homophobia, harassment and my own experiences with catcalling jerkfaces. But the truth is, I love being a lesbian and I wouldn't change my sexuality for anything. If you don't believe me—or even if you do—check out my list of reasons why being into chicks rocks.

Girl On Girl: “Thintervention” Is Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

I don't usually watch TV because I get less than 15 channels and half of them are in Spanish. But lately my girlfriend and I have been watching "Thintervention" on demand at her apartment. In case you don't know, "Thintervention" is about a group of overweight people being whipped into shape by Jackie Warner, a…
