On Lezbelib, we are used to talk about politics. It is always important to know what's going on and to know a little bit people who represent us, no matter their gender.
Recently, Cathy, Cael and E-Li had the opportunity to interview James F. Haning II, an openly gay Candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in the 3rd Congressional District of Nevada.
We were interested in his ambitions and how he thought he could represent the LGBTQ community if he wins. Which are his projects? What will he fight for? We also approached the simple fact of being an openly gay candidate and what that implies.
A request for asylum of an Ugandan lesbian was refused because she did not read lesbian magazines.
I found out this week that I get to keep my seasonal job. They moved me to part time.
I love this job for many reasons: I get to help people, answer questions, become more knowledgeable, and basically just have a job, which is always good.
One of my favorite things about this job though is the internal policy which bars discrimination of all kinds, including based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Another week, another column, and another question...Hello my beautiful lezies, it's me again...Going through your personal baggage and helping you clean house. There's something about spring cleaning that brings relief, but along with it comes that moment where we must face ourselves and the situations that have bogged us down for years...
My solution for the maddening obstacle? Simple, bring me your junk, I'll sift through it, conquer it, and even send you a box of chocolates(okay maybe not the chocolates) But none the less I will help to make those burdens lighter by offering you a new and different perspective on the issues that are plaguing your life....
Is sexual identity and orientation natural or essential to the person or is it socially constructed and subject to change? Are people born gay or is it a personal decision to become gay?
How did your society think and act about homosexuality and sexual orientation in ancient Greece? I think I might be naturally gay myself.
I’m rather tired of being called gay when I am bi. Seems society thinks all bi men are gay and all lesbians are bi which is so stupid. Bisexuals are not lesbians. Sometimes lesbians become bisexuals. I like to keep them guessing.
I have a super crush on a nurse I work with. I know she s a lesbian and up until now I have lived my life as a want to be bisexual. Although most of my relationships have been with men, I find myself constantly fantasizing about women. Now all of those women have become the face and embodiment of this one particular woman that I can’t stop thinking about, and believe me, I have tried.
I want to connect with her and I am curious if lesbians would sleep with or could come to love a bisexual woman? Is there some sort of political sexual protocol or unspoken code of honor about lesbians sleeping with bisexual women?
You said that the ancient Greeks did not conceive of sexual orientation as a form of social identity as Western societies have done for the past century. In this post racist world wouldn’t it be nice to look at each person separately and not think in terms of race, color, sex, gender, or creed but the human being inside.
What a different world it would be if we did not have to see it in such strict terms of duality: male, female, butch, fem, boy, girl. I mean are there really differences between straight and gay people? That got me thinking about gaydar, sexual identity and how to tell the difference. Do you have gaydar and how do you define your sexual orientation?
