The Conundrum of the ‘Femme’ Lesbian

The Conundrum of the ‘Femme’ Lesbian

Since I came out as a lesbian twenty-five years ago I have had a plethora of statements and questions about me that no one ever would have stated when they assumed I was straight. In the beginning, I got the proverbial, “I never would have guessed you were a lesbian” and the “Gee, you don’t […]

Is it Anti-Feminist for a Lesbian to Initiate Sex?

Is it Anti-Feminist for a Lesbian to Initiate Sex?

What’s a very common refrain you hear when you ask a lesbian about her sex life? “Once we get started, I love it!” Actually, you hear a version of that about a lot of things, not just sex. “I didn’t want to go to that party, but once I got there I had a great […]

The Sex That Dare Not Speak Its Name?

Brave new world of e-publishing: We changed the title of our book. Not while we were writing it, not prior to publication, not before anyone had caught sight of the original title and cover.

It’s our tribe, our gaggle of gay girls and our fighting to be included in some social club, meetup, Facebook Group, marriage rights, equal rights and more or hiding in social awkwardness afraid of […]

Arisa White: Calling All You Bastards

Calling All You Bastards, the Fatherless, the Forgotten. “Do you want to write your father?” My mother asked on the 33rd birthday.
