Honest, although not brutally so. Not a slave to trends, not dependent on other people to validate me. Try to help others in trouble!
Not courageous enough to be fully out.

What I Like
Queer history ( i.e. Stone Butch Blues which is amazing), women’s history, anything to do with the classics. I also like old-fashioned comedy, like Jeeves and Wooster, the Jennings books, crime (Agatha Christie), stuff on Poland (I’m part Polish) historical novels and some fantasy stuff, like Terry Pratchett. I will mostly read anything though, I find WIRED very interesting, which is a technology/sci-fi magazine.
|Favorite Queer Books||
Stone Butch Blues, Sapphistries, Between Girlfriends, poems of Sappho, all the Claudine books, The Swimming Pool Library,Beyond the Pale, Tipping the Velvet, The Comedienne, The Woman in Beige,The Diary of a Nobody,The Diary of a Provincial Lesbian, Annabel,Patience and Sarah, The Color Purple,Before Stonewall,The Others,A gay history of Britain,Unspeakable Love,
Dirty Dancing, Made in Dagenham. I haven’t watched as many as I’d like.
I would really like to watch Prop 8 and the other documentaries looking at queer people-like ‘because the bible tells me so.’ I just have no way of getting them yet…
|Favorite TV Shows||
Comedies and romantic ones. Everyone likes a romance, right? . I’ll watch anything with lesbians in, loved the BBC programmes on Anne Lister and Lip Service. I also like Make it or Break it, which just so happens to have hot girls not wearing very much in it. They do some gymnastics as well I believe.Also detective programmes-I’m a bit middle-aged like that. And of course, Glee.

A cute girl.
I became a lesbian because of women, because women are beautiful, strong, and compassionate.
I have met many feminists who were not Lesbians but I have never met a Lesbian who was not a feminist.
The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn’t mean that God doesn’t love heterosexuals. It’s just that they need more supervision. ~Lynn Lavner
My lesbianism is an act of Christian charity. All those women out there praying for a man, and I’m giving them my share. ~Rita Mae Brown
