Ask the lesbian

Ask me anything. Nothing is too personal.

When did you know? How cool were your parents? Do you think on a whole that lesbians get less flack for their orientation than gay men or have you found it to be about the same? Other than the legal restrictions which we have discussed ad nauseum on these forums, what discriminations have you faced? Men most often value on women based on their beauty or lack thereof. Do lesbians generally?

I don't really have any questions yet, but I'm glad to see the resurgence of the "Ask the..." threads. I think they're great for building new dialogue between members with different life experiences.

What do you think of Ellen Degeneres? Not so much asking you as to whether or not you think she's hot, but whether she has done much/any for the Lesbian community?

What are your thoughts on "lesbian-themed" shows or plot lines on television?

From when I was very little, elementary school.

My parents were actually really great about it, I was lucky. My mom wants to be a grandmother, and that's hard on her, but other than that they've been very loving and supportive.

Well society puts lesbians into two categories butch and lipstick. I probably fall into the lipstick, therefore have it much easier than others. I do think lesbians have it much easier than gay men.

The majority of my experience with discrimination was in college and most of it from women.

I think it's great. I actually find her comedy annoying, but her bravery I adore. Plus she's dating the beautiful Portia De Rossi.

To be honest I haven't really watched any

I've heard "The L Word" is excellent but I don't have showtime.

But as far as Gay TV in general. I think Will and Grace started out great, I think the fact that they were able to make fun of themselves and the way they did it was really cool, but has sense lost it's appeal. But Six Feet Under is my favorite because the homosexuality is just part of the every day life, it's not an agenda or anything like that.

There's a lot of threads dealing with homosexuality in here, how does it affect you?

I often feel like a subject rather than a person. Certain individuals are extremely irritating but you just try to do your best to educate them, that's all you can do.
