The lesbians on Datalounge verus the lesbians in your real life\\n

In what ways are they different?

by Anonymousreply 15404/12/2015

On DL they're imaginary.

No difference. All the lesbians I know come here regularly.

Both are mindnumbingly boring. The ones on DL should defect to Zetaboardworld IMHO. They try to steal everything from men anyway, why can't they let us keep DL?

Another vote here for cane-free lesbians. I don't know any gay women in real life under the age of 80 who use canes and I have no idea how that stereotype started but I still laugh at 'caneface'.

by Anonymousreply 1109/18/2010

The ones I know in real life are fun to be around.

The ones on DL who are fun to be around are not noticed for being lesbian, because they don't make a belabored point of saying so whenever they post.

One regular lesbian DLer is a good friend of mine whose comments are probably often assumed to be those of a gay man.

R12 - I'm a lesbian and am not "sanctimonious, judgmental, uptight, and hyper." I don't even run in a pack. I know the type you speak of though. I'm fairly attractive (within the height/weight of where I should be and don't scare small children with my appearance) and my partner is a knockout. We are out there so please don't hate us all. We're just not at your typical lesbian venues (bars, pride events). Don't give up hope. Oh, and I don't think you should settle for some toothless wonder with a neck tattoo. I didn't! We live in Chicago btw - maybe you're in a more rural area? Good luck!

The cane stuff was some DL guy from 2002 trying to be funny. And you now take it seriously? LOL. I'll bet the ones who make the crude jokes are 20 year olds and don't know a lesbian in real life.

Bitter R12, if you look to the upper classes -- more educated, more income, and over 30 -- you'll come across many sophisticated lesbians who do not fit your stereotype.

[quote] if you look to the upper classes -- more educated, more income, and over 30 -- you'll come across many sophisticated lesbians who do not fit your stereotype.

I don't count myself as upper class, but the lesbians I met who study at the same university are all sophisticated lesbians who do not fit R12 stereotype. With one exception none of us is butch, and when we meet at a regular bar we often get mistaken for a group of straight women.

The picture looks different at places where the 'scene' is meeting. The worst experience I've made was at a panel discussion with lots of lesbians over 40. They behaved like R12 described. Apart from one. And she is the (lesbian) Mayor of our city. There is hope, R12.

Real life lesbians that I know, want very badly to be men.

DL not so much.

by Anonymousreply 3009/19/2010

Unfortunately, although I love being 52 (and look much younger, so they tell me), that does qualify as "over 40." And although I have dated a few women 30 and under, they bring an entirely different set of issues to the table.

I understand what you mean about the "upper classes," but even though I am a multi-degreed professional, in my profession I make very little money, and I tend to act more like the working class lesbian I have always been. This enables me to better connect with the people served in my profession, and I certainly, at this late date, don't plan to "put on airs" just to meet someone.

"Upper-class" lesbians don't really like me anyway, because I neither look nor act they way they think I should, particularly when they find out my profession. To me, they tend to come off as a bit snooty, and waaaaaaay too concerned with being straight-acting and straight-appearing, similarly to the gay men on DL.

But thanks for the suggestions, everyone; I appreciate your kind thoughts.

If lesbians can be found by bread pudding consumption, then every librarian is a lesbian. Wish I could meet an actual lesbian that was in to me, not too caught up in academia to have a normal conversation, took care of herself, and didn't try to make up for her lesbianism by adopting other social hangups like major race issues.

I have met lesbians that fit that standard, but for one reason or another they are not in to me. Usually it's my age.

Lesbians are all different, just like gay men. Just because some of us wish the 500lb lesbian with missing teeth doesn't exist doesn't make it so. It always amazes me that a site with the most critical, over the top gay men have something to say about gay women-hey, we come in all shapes and sizes-just like you and just like the straight people. Why don't we all allow everyone to be who they are, without limits or rules??Isn't that what equal rights is all about??

BTW, I am very much a lesbian who always had to tell the gay women in the bar, that yes, I was gay and not just hanging with my gay friends. I get it.

I don't know that many in real life but the ones I do know seem to be a mixture of what r12 described with others who are smart and funny and good looking.

The ones here are few. Off the top of my head I can only name two or three posters here that I believe are lesbians, including myself. I tend to stay away from the obsessive threads about celebrities though (like the Chely Wright one). Honestly, I don't even know some of these celebrities when they are talked about here. I think the last one I contributed to was the Stephanie Miller thread and that was because I'd been listening to her show for many years.

But in my experience, lesbians are pretty obsessive so it doesn't surprise me that they can have several threads going on the likes of Chely.

I have three lesbian friends. One uses a cane and has a great sense of humor; one has a very curious mind and is a delightful conversationalist. The third is vivacious and charming and somewhat of a sartorial chamelion - she can go from frumpy, sweats wearing, no make-up, and ponytail to a made-over knockout in about 30 minutes. She is one of the most charming people I know. None of the three are like the obsessive man haters that pop up on DL.

My partner and I have been together 25 years. The older we get the less other people's sexual identity matters to us. Most of the people we do things with are straight couples or single straight men and women.

I like to go hiking and backpacking and most women my age don't like it or physically can't do it. One advantage of being lesbian is that the wives of the straight guys will trust them to go with me on overnight trips.

They're weird. Never have I come across a group that so vehemently wants nothing to do with men. It's just boggling.

I mean, men are connected to men, women to men both romantically and platonic and gay men are also connected to both men and women. But lesbians?! Nada. Whenever I meet a lesbian, I honestly feel totally invisible... odd feeling. When a woman is introduced to a bunch of gays (in real life, not to you bitchy DL queens), she is always received warmly, with interest (unless it's a club where the gays have one thing on their mind: cock).

Just bloody bizarre.

Lesbians are so pedestrian and meagre nowadays. They either have that annoying college-girl bookworm thing going on; that nasty hipster chick going on; the fat quirky sex maniac schtick or some variant of these!!

I yearn for the days of stylish, powerful charismatic lesbians like Kate Hepburn and her love, Laura Harding.

by Anonymousreply 8010/01/2013

Dang. Am I the only lesbian here that has a circle of close friends comprised equally of gay men and lesbians, with a healthy smattering of straights of both genders to make things interesting? There is a core of us who have been friends since college/grad school, and our group has expanded over the years to include partners/close friends of the original group. We're all reasonably presentable and mostly gainfully employed, and gone through life's joys and tribulations together, geography permitting.

Surely there are other DLers out there who share this experience? I can't imagine being close with only lesbians, or only gay men for that matter. But I can't imagine a fulfilling emotional life without either contingent, either.

DL is the only place where this politically incorrect lesbo can go to escape the rampant genderqueers who now dominate the social scene in London.

I have mostly gay and straight male friends and a couple of chilled lesbian friends - all of whom I would die for. Most lesbians I see on the scene are humourless Debbie Downers who can't laugh at themselves, and who think that full-sleeve tattoos are the height of individualism despite everyone else having them. Yuk.

I don't do the scene any more because increasingly it's full of MtFs with dicks who get all affronted because I won't shag them, you know, seeing as they have dicks. And their young trendy lesbian friends are so desperate to be seen as inclusive that they call me transphobic because I don't want some Hairy Mary with his junk intact. DL is the only place where other lesbos seem to agree with me on that.

I like coming to DL because I feel like I get an insider view of what's happening in the US and the snark levels match my own cruel sense of humour.

r120 - If you doubt the veracity of my identity as a gay man, TD me and stroll over to the hot Algerian soccer player thread, of which I am the OP. I doubt many women would be this fixated on men's asses, and I doubt anyone would go to such elaborate lengths to assume a false identity on an anonymous message board for homos.

I am gay and crazy for men, but for me that doesn't equate to hating women, here or in real life.

I am also used to getting attacked when I point out misogynist and racist shit on DL, but I never shut the fuck up. My boyfriend hates me coming here because of all the negativity, but I keep returning for the insights and pop culture snickering.

I meant to address r122 above, but got too wrapped up thinking about athletic Algerian butts.

[quote]you were born of a mother, you may have sisters, female cousins, work colleagues etc...I'd like to know how you managed to live your life with half of the population just being "transitory amusement". Whether you sleep with them or not, whether you like them or not, females are relevant. Step down from your ivory tower and live amongst the real people. You may learn something about yourself that you seem to be too afraid to acknowledge. Life shouldn't be lived in a bubble.

Oh please. That's just pointless posturing. Gay men don't need women in any real way, accept it or don't, doesn't change anything.

The ones who have overstated their own importance are the women insisting that we are obsessed with your lives, when in actuality, we're usually just amused by them.

Of course I'll pay attention to women I like, but I'm certainly not going to choose them over them men I like.

what a bunch of woman hating. None of your comments reflect any of the lesbians I've met in my 50 years as gay. Oh - I'm attractive, wealthy and retired. You sound like a bunch of malcontents. And if you're tired of being told what to say, how to look, and how to behave, try being a woman in a room full of gay men.

Reeling at the thought that there are women you like. I do wonder about that...do they really like you back?

R136 - if a gay man wants to have child (and many do), a woman WOULD be needed.

You can live in your own sad, little world if you want to. I can't see how you can contribute very much to society and there's no way you can reach your full potential as a human being with an attitude like yours. Have a nice day.

Back atcha. Same goes for lesbians and men. And that is why we are reviled.

R141, i think that obsession has sexual connotations, so there is no way lesbian women to be obsessed with... men!

Bisexual women, yes, they could be obsessed with males, but lesbians, well, not really. Can't you see the obvious? Meh...!

Lesbians are extremely obsessed with men. I wish it weren't true but it is. I hope all women stop it at some point but I don't see it happening.

Lol, R143, what happened? Really now! Who hurt you and you see all women in that negative light? Is it possible all women to be the same to you? Whoa...That's disturbing, but it is at least funny!

R144, I am tired of women obsessing over men. Nothing wrong in my speaking up. I'm not bragging about it. I wish it weren't that way at all.

by Anonymousreply 14504/11/2015

Lesbians are indifferent toward men. That's what drives them crazy.

R146, You sound pretty obsessed. I have no doubt you will continue to do so.

A surrogate would be needed, an adoption agency would be needed, a wife would not.

Funny that's the only example you could come up with.

Since you are not here for my amusement, feel free to walk away, if not, you will continue to amuse a whole bunch of us.

R120 Bless you sir. I have always kept the faith that there were more of you in DL than there are of the "fraus are the plague of the earth" types who act as if we add nothing to the debates and conversations here.

I am also a caneless Lesbian, funny, world traveler, pride myself on never being boring and very much into (successfully) being a change agent during this time around. Am able to post as an expert on a couple subjects in here - and I hate "Tin hats." LOL

I LURVE my Gay brothers, truth is most of my closest friends are gay men, though my community is straight as much as gay. Sometimes I miss having my close gay GF nearby, but that is the price I pay for living the life I want.

Agree this is a LGBT site, but I respect the feelings of the men that claim it as their own - but am disappointed if they get messy or hostile about it. This site is fun as hell, but lately have found it disappointingly not as funny as years past - just as advertised! particularly appreciate this site on layovers... awesome reading when stuck in the sandpit hell of AbuDhabi. GO my Queer Brothers and Sisters - Be FREE, wherever you are....

I agree with R151- this place is a blast- but was much better in the late nineties. Still makes me laugh though despite the influx of simpletons. The best site to keep me connected to home and entertained during layovers in wacky countries...

I'm not sure where OPs question has gotten him/her/us. We're all here because we have common interests in DL topics regardless of whether we're gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans yada yada yada people. Nobody knows who's what, anyway. Some of us are jerks and some of us aren't. Do we really need to lapse into more stereotyping?

by Anonymousreply 15304/12/2015

R151, Be FREE, to go to a lesbian site. Please and thank you
