Hillary Is Here For Women

ai???There cannot be true democracy unless women's voices are heard. There cannot be true democracy unless women are given the opportunity to take responsibility for their own lives. There cannot be true democracy unless all citizens are able to participate fully in the lives of their country. We all owe so much to those who came before and tonight belongs to all of you.ai???

Gold Star Lesbian

Question: Gold star lesbian. People take such pride in this term. I am not one but I feel like it's something that I should be, and am ashamed that I am not. Thoughts? Answer: Gold Star Lesbian, let's define what this means before I give you an answer. According to Urban Dictionary, a Gold Star Lesbian is a lesbian that has never slept with a man and categorizes herself as a woman whose preference is women and only sleeps with women.

Caitlyn Jenner, A Disappointment

Let me start off by saying that I respect what Caitlyn Jenner has done, in that she has taken to many social media platforms in order to answer questions from young, impressionable men and women. Good for her. Sheai??i??s got a strong voice and she should use it. My concern is that, while she is stunning on paper, when she opens her mouth everything cringe worthy surges out.

Acceptance

From Anon: I came out to my family years ago and it wasn't terrible. They accepted me the same. That is until a few months ago I got a girlfriend. It's like all of a sudden it became more of a label and now "real." My family acts weird around her and me. They call us "friends" and are at times disrespectful all while putting on the front of "acceptance." I know this is a huge change for them and I don't want to throw it in their face. But I want to be happy too. What would you do? Help! I'm glad you asked, Anon.....

Born With Teeth: A Memoir

Now, while being a fan of Kateai??i??s for a few years, I was hesitant to read the memoir, as I had known a little about the adoption, the attack, and the heartbreak Ms. Mulgrew discusses, and knew that I was nowhere near emotionally prepared for the depths in which Born With Teeth reaches. Chapter by chapter, I was blown away. The lengths at which Kate goes in order for her story to be heard is insurmountable. Through 302 pages, Kate Mulgrewai??i??s personality and strength shine through. I read Born With Teeth in a day and listened to the audio of the book about a week later. The passion in Kateai??i??s voice, the sadness, and the excitement captivate the reader in a trance for 9 hours. Kate Mulgrewai??i??s words stun to the highest degree.

Hating Men?

As a lesbian I have been called a man hater over and over and over. It's becoming a soft spot with me. I don't particularly like men, but that's not due to my sexuality (I don't think). But the stigma of lesbians hating men is something I wasn't aware of until it happened to me. I don't know how to argue my point. I don't know how to stand up for myself. No, I don't like men, I don't find them attractive or appealing or good friends. But I am not a man hater. Help!

Save The Women

Save the tatas. Save the boobies. Save the tits. Save the mother. Save the daughter. Save the life. The month of October is a month for breast cancer awareness, but what does that mean? Do we all walk around wearing pink and slap bracelets with ai???save the tatasai??? on our wrists? Does our pink shirt tell the woman who is dying that her children will never forget her? Does our bracelet tell the woman who just had a mastectomy that she is no longer valid? Do our breast cancer campaigns wrap the crying women in pain in our arms and tell her that her breasts do not define her?

Mean Girls: A Lesson on Truth

What makes a ai???mean girlai???? I've recently been asking myself this question, based on a certain situation in my life that has given me pause. I've taken time to reflect on my own actions in this ai???mean girlai??? process and have come to the conclusion that the truth is taken much differently person to person. What may seem like no big deal to one person might tear another personai??i??s world apart. Whether I am being brutally honest with someone or I am hurting them with my words has become a blurred line that I do not necessarily approve of in myself. I have always been a firm believer that the truth is always the right answer. Truth, by definition, means ai???that in which is in accordance with fact or realityai???.
