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 […]

Lesbian Shape Shifter

Lesbian Shape Shifter

I’m not going to lie to you—I just bought a pair of workout shorts that promoted “tummy control”. Cuz if I can wear shorts that have a “power mesh insert” that will help me discover the figure I never knew I had—I’m buying them. I’m buying seven. And besides, if you can shove your power […]

Dissecting the “LOOK” and Other Matters

Dissecting the “LOOK” and Other Matters

(A response to Trayvon Martin and a beautifully articulated piece written by Vicki Randle) That ‘LOOK’. Yeah, the one that alternatively means ‘Uh, you have GOT to be joking that you are walking up in here thinking you can be a part of this; or: ‘You’ve lost your way little lady, let me help you […]

On Race and Gender

On Race and Gender

I met some friends this morning at a breakfast restaurant in Berkeley I had been to once before. It’s a delightful little place with high quality dishes and what appears to be a somewhat high-end clientele, normally a place I really enjoy patronizing, as I’m a bit of a foodie. The first time I noticed […]

DJ Rockaway Rocks the House!

DJ Rockaway Rocks the House!

I love to dance. I just HAVE to! And DJ Rockaway is the DJ that keeps me dancing. She stepped up to DJ our big Epochalips party for Nicole Conn’s movie premiere of ‘A Perfect Ending’ last year at Frameline. She got me to jump in the pool TWICE (with most of my clothes on) […]

It’s Here: My 50th High School Reunion

It’s Here: My 50th High School Reunion

Fifty years was an unimaginable amount of time when I was 17 and now, like a thunderbolt, that long stretch of life is behind me. My best friend from high school is going to the reunion with her halo of wild dark hair gone white – like mine. What will she see? Trim athletes now […]

Remembering Lynnly

Remembering Lynnly

Ever had a friend who was with you through thick and thin, taught you important things, exasperated you, but led you through each stage of life feeling like you were running to keep up? Well I had that with Lynnly Labovitz. Today is her birthday and I woke up thinking I should try to be […]

Lesbian Dating: Building Trust

Lesbian Dating: Building Trust

Recently I talked with two women, “Susan” and “Karen.”  They had just started dating a couple months before, and seemed quite in lust. They were glowing and giggling, until the issue of “trust” came up. Susan:  I just wish Karen would trust me more.  She just can’t let herself lean on me.  She’s been hurt […]

Stop Embarrassing Yourself. Read This!

Stop Embarrassing Yourself. Read This!

Dear Battle Axe, I don’t feel old, in fact, most people don’t believe I’m in my mid-60s! Do you have a list of ‘do’s & dont’s’ to help keep my age a secret? Dear Hiding, Rule #1 If you wear glasses, use frames to hide the bags under your eyes. But beware, your glasses might […]

Silence is Not a Virtue

Silence is Not a Virtue

Silence is NOT a virtue. I don’t know much about life but I know a lot about love. I don’t know how to split atoms, I don’t split body from mind, but I’ve split many infinitives and I split my gut laughing. O hell, I’ve been splitting fine hairs with tradition for years. I don’t […]
