Femme lesbian needs $100,000 for documentary about femme lesbian invisibility
[quote]Never before has lesbian visibility been discussed on such a large scale. And never has it been so important to make the conversation happen. This is about introducing the world to a largely invisible portion of societyâ€” the lesbians that â€ślook straight.â€ť While out and proud, they still face the burden of invisibility on a day-to-day basis. Of feeling alone within the gay world, and lost within the straight world.
[quote]Without popular, positive representation, feminine lesbians will continue to remain a delegitimized populationâ€” and the LGBTQ community cannot afford to lose the faces of these women in the midst of a civil rights movement. The time for this documentary is now. If Jennifer Lopez can produce a television show on ABC Family about a lesbian-headed family, we know that there is a market for and momentum behind the subject matter.
it is better to just fit in.
what is the point of this?
will have negative consequences
THIS FILM'S NOT FUNNY!
This is not needed whatsoever! Femme lesbians are fawned over, masturbated to, and held up as the model of what every gay person should be. They are the #1 most acceptable queers in mainstream culture, and invariably used as the excuse to chastise anyone with atypical gender presentation. Not to mention that femme lesbians are way over represented in all media due to how much everyone already accepts them.
The Other side of Snatch.
Bonne Bell [italic]LipSmackers[/italic] and frosted tips does not make a lesbian "look straight"
femmes for femmes!
Agree completely with r4
r6, no looking straight is about the whole package. Clothes, confidence etc
r2 = rosie
Some of those "femme" lesbians still look so very butch.
r11, bitter bulldyke
R12 is fem les, a noted psycho, self-loather and homophobe.
So are these the equivalent to GayBros?
r13, Go shave your pits
I am telling you NOW so I don't have to tell you THEN....
R4 and several subsequent posts prove why some education is needed, most of all in the gay & lesbian world.
Just ff R11/R!3, who conflates being a femme lesbian with a mandate to make juvenile ad hominem attacks on anyone who isn't, or who points out her ubiquitous nasty spamming.
But most fictional lesbians on TV are femme. I can't think of any butch lesbian characters on TV. And I am not talking about real lesbians like Ellen, but characters on TV. The lesbians on Glee are femme. The lesbians on the ABC family show "fosters" are femme. The lesbians on Greys anatomy are also femme.
Let them remain invisible, I say.
r20, this is great! Hopefully more femmes will come out and date each other
Oh I just saw the website and I am donating a grand!!
Can we please talk about how pedestrians lesbifraus are? What happened to the Katharine Hepburns? Lesbians are so granola, so styleless, so lacking in personality barring man-hating bulldyke-ness, of course...
Yeah, I like intellectual with style - it's a rare breed
I like smart androgynous types, too.
Too much wanting to fit in and be straight-ish these days...
[quote]Go shave your pits
Uh, I'm a guy you fucking idiot. You're so beholden to gender roles you'd probably fall the fuck out if I shaved my pits.
Do you realize you have one of the most recognizable posting styles? Your lunacy can be seen from space.
I'm sure you are Bertha! Now go scratch your imaginary testicals
r24, we need a national femme les coming out day. Sadly, the real feminine and classy lesbians meet up in private parties etc. I live in L.A I know this is true
Fem les is one of the most moronic posters in DL history.
r29, another irate butch!
Yes, doll, we're all "irate butches". Christ you're dim.
Oh please, femme lesbians are overrepresented in the media if anything! But that's not enough for this chick.
...and for my next trick, I'll need a Lesbian and a bed sheet.
Sheeee-it! Femme lesbians love attention from men, and would be lost without their ability to manipulate them. That's why they look the way they do.
They enjoy passing for straight.
Is Sandy B a femme lez? She's hot to me!
The women in those videos are femme if you define femme as "not transgendered".
They look like average, everyday soccer moms to me. There's nothing especially glamorous or even hot about them - which is what I tend to think of as femme.
Totally agree, and I was just going to write that, R38. What is the point of being "femme" if it is just looking like a boring, average straight person? No style. Fearful, wishing to blend into the mediocre. Not a turn on.
BOUNDARIES are in danger of being VIOLATED in this thread. I am flabbergasted that no trigger warnings were issued - it feels very rapey that this was not done, obviously it was deliberately done to hurt me. I am telling you NOW that I don't have to tell you THEN.
I am still short $$$!!!!!!!!!!
I am a femme, they may not be bulldykes(?) but some of them look hardly femmes. Really harsh manlike facial features or your typical lesbian looking ordinary people...
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so farâ€¦Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
