Top 10 Things Every Lesbian Should Be Thankful For
If you are fortunate enough to be out to your friends and family, then Facebook is a great place for you to be yourself, join gay groups, meet other lesbians, send your friends rainbow bumper stickers, organize rallies and protests, and stay informed. It has been an invaluable resource in the current marriage equality fight and hopefully it will keep helping us in the future. Not to mention the funny targeted ads that I get along the border of my page telling me to meet gay singles and go on the Sweet Cruise. This is how I ended up with my “Marriage is So Gay” t-shirt. See?? Facebook, while also the outlet for many a homophobe, has become a safe space for queers and their friends, as long as we keep the weirdos out of our friends lists! I’ll leave you with this, a quote from one of my late-night bloggings:
The internet, cyberspace, is just an extension, a further dimension of human consciousness anyway. I want my thoughts to be held here is this electromagnetic fabric, safe from the pyres of book burnings and witch hunts that seek to destroy that which is beautiful in its defiance.
4. High Heels
I know lesbians are supposed to be tough and all but, come on, how can you look at those stunning shoes and not implode a little bit inside? Lesbians love high heels. Feminine girls love wearing them, strutting around and dancing their asses off in hot shoes, while butch women love staring at the femmes in said hot shoes. Bi girls love to wear them, straight girls like lesbians in heels, and short girls love the height they provide. It’s a win-win situation, and, let’s face it, who hasn’t had a sex fantasy that involved nothing but a pair of Jimmy Choos or Christian Louboutins? (On you or on her or on both of you, you get the idea).
Smokin’ hot sky-high heels are not just for straight women anymore. And while many women complain that high heels were invented by men to make us incapacitated, incapable of running away, mere sex objects, and subjected to a lifetime of back and foot problems, I am not totally buying that. Many gay girls will bear the pain because they want to look sexy, and they certainly aren’t doing it for any man’s benefit. So if you can afford it, go splurge a little and get yourself a pair. And you don’t need to drop a grand to look stunning, Urban Outfitters has hot shoes on sale all the time. Go forth and be sexy!
