Reply to lesbian dating
Some of us have to risk our safety, relationships with family members, jobs, and housing just to publicly peel back the sexual orientation and/or gender that was assigned to us and declare our truth.
Mainstream culture doesn’t reflect the reality of so many of our lives, but everything is compared to its norms. One of the ways we can de-normalize heterosexuality is to stop assuming that everyone is straight unless they tell us otherwise.
Seeing as I usually only cover depressing Adam Sandler movies here at binarythis, I thought that it was high time I do a review of something more uplifting.
Yesterday my girlfriend and I went to see Pride – the true story of how a gay and lesbian activist group joined forces with a mining town to fight the Thatcher government’s attacks on miners in 1984 -1985.
All you have to do is bat a lash, act entirely disinterested, cold and bitchy, and boys will fall at your feet.
Maybe it was my aloofness that drew in the dudes (straight girls take note), but damn, dudes were easy like ~Sunday morning~.Some people will be shy about it, some people will come straight out with ‘you’re really beautiful’ or ‘your eyes are gorgeous’ – different strokes, I guess.The clincher for me is often people dropping into the conversation how much they like redheads.If they’re really keen you’re aware you’re their gender of choice – and/or that you display any other physical characteristics they really like – you might be in there.If the person in question frequently compliments you, on your physicality or your mind, it’s generally a good sign.
