    • Yes, but not everyone in those cities is progressive. The midwest panels mirror my experiences in the south side of Chicago. I currently live in Milwaukee, the largest city in Wisconsin, and the dating pool of queer women is exceptionally small. So I related to these panels!

        • I appreciate your defense of the Midwest and please know that I affectionately give the Midwest a hard time because I spent most of my life in rural and suburban PA (who just got marriage equality! YES!). I’m just pointing out the correlation between the amount of queers and vegetarian food in an area. I can’t comment for all of the Midwestern cities, but I do know that Chicago’s pride blows LA’s and SF’s out of the water:)

    • I love this defense of the Midwest! I have been to plenty of vegan and vegetarian restaurants being born and raised in Ohio. And also know of plenty of places to go and meet other ladies. I live in Boston now, and I think people would be amazed at how easy it isn’t to go and meet people here!

    • Oy. I gotta say, as a twentysomething queer from Akron, Ohio, I have to say: the MAJORITY of the Midwest lacks vegetarian options and the MAJORITY of the Midwest does NOT consist of “big, progressive cities.” So…thinking in “big picture” terms, the panels are pretty accurate. In Akron, I was the only lesbian as far as the eye could see. Same with the vegetarian options, although I’m not so sure, since I’m staunchly omnivorous. (Morally ambiguous, I know…maybe it’s time to start eating vegetables…)

  1. I went to a restaurant with friends a few weeks back and almost everything on the menu was cooked using lard. I consumed the only thing that didn’t have lard: Alcohol. Mainly, margaritas. So, not all was lost.

    • LOL!!! Ok this begs the question, (I am vegetarian also), what do Gorillas eat for protein? Do they eat insects? Avocados? Brazil Nuts? I am serious. I expect answers but may google it myself.

      I know that Chimpanzee’s have been filmed eating other animals that they have successfully hunted.

    • From my googling, it seems like they only eat plants and the occasional termite. Apparently, they have to eat constantly in order to get enough carbs. That sounds like an animal I could be related to!

  2. YES!!! I love it. I feel this especially when I’m watching a something on TV, or a movie, with friends. I remember watching Gossip Girl with my friends in high school, and while they all drooled over Chuck Bass, I was secretly blushing because I was so attracted to Serena! Oy vey…what’s a queer to do?

  3. This is so good! I live in the South and I had to give up vegetarianism due to lack of healthy options (unfortunately my health had to come before how I gross I find meat) and I feel like I might as well give up on ever finding a girl at this point. I can’t wait to get out of here and get to somewhere like San Francisco.
