Lez Integrationiste: MLK’s Dream Redux

Ok so as usual I am taking for granted that if you read my blog you follow me on twitter, so you know that I attended the Art Exhibit & Cocktail Reception Winter Party event.

It was a great time full of artwork, music, drinks, and food. I got to meet and mingle with staffers from both the National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce and Aquagirl (two awesome organizations!). The best part being the proceeds go right back into the community. But the one thing that I couldn’t help but notice was… ummm there were 3 black people. No really I counted.

Unfashionable Femme

*I wrote this post from the air on the way to see UNO so chalk up anything that ruffles your feathers to the altitude… it probably has nothing to do with the altitude but if it helps you sleep at night (shrugs) *

I have come to terms that I am not hip. Mostly because I equate being hip to being with fads, and nothing about me says fad-ish (or so I hope). That is why I will never be a cool lesbian… or a diva dyke or whatever homo Barbie-esque labels we go by this week. I am just an old school doily dyke that loves women (most of the time, you heffas can also work a nerve).

I am not really sure when being a lesbian became so primetime cool. Was it when Gina Gershon and the Bride of Chucky chick kissed? Was it when Showime presented the L Word? I would say Ellen… but nothing about Ellen speaks cool… Was it you Queen L in Set it Off? Maybe all the girl on girl video chick scenes (you can always blame rap) . Whoever and Whatever it was can I say a rousing… Thank you…dumb ass.

Superlesbians Do Not Exist

… better yet let me say that I’m not one.

I guess this post all started when I was approached by a girl on twitter who proclaimed she was a “Goldstar”. Now seeing that the last time I was concerned with stars of any metallic color was in grade school I was a bit confused.  I am glad she couldn’t see my face because she definitely was the recipient of my patented “Did you ride the slow bus?” sideeye.

So when she asked me if I was a goldstar… I didn’t even pretend to know what she was talking about.

You Asked For it: Interracial Dating

… now let me first say this it is 3:18am in the morning

Ok so I was on twitter the other day, feeling void of inspiration but desiring to blog so I asked for a topic. And strangely enough the first 5 responses were interracial dating… which took me aback for a moment only because it is not something I discuss (or honestly think about) often. But since I am putting on my sleep deprived thinking cap here is my take on it.. (hopefully I don’t go to far off the mark). Continue reading You Asked For it: Interracial Dating
