There’s this blog I read occasionally called “Effin Dykes.” It’s amusing, but the blogger is awfully young, so mostly I use it to stay aware of the latest cultural icons and slang. Like once she had a contest to think up an equivalent lesbian term for “c*ckblocking.” I’d never even heard of c*ckblocking before, and I never saw lesbians engaging in it either. Maybe my friends are just too polite. *bg*
Anyway, so her readers came up with a huge list of things they say, which proves the phenomenon is much more prevalent than I’d ever imagined. Damn, it’s a jungle out there! 😦
Here’s the list, btw:
2) Tw*t swat
3) Clam jam
5) Beaver impeder
6) Taco blocko
Recently she did a post on asymmetry, and why it’s a good indicator of dykehood. Apparently “hipsters” will totally mess with your gaydar and make you see lesbians when there are none. I had to go look up “hipster” — that term’s been around since the jazz era…surely it couldn’t mean the same thing now, right??? Evidently it kinda sorta does.
And then there was this post about weird reactions lesbians get when coming out. From straight girls that won’t use a public shower with you to “sport fishing.” (I love that term: “sport fishing” because the fish doesn’t get eaten. *snort*)
I have gotten positive and negative reactions to coming out. But nothing so….dramatic. Of course, I’m a very low-key kinda person. 😀
Does this really go on in everyone else’s life? Is it a generational thing? I’m so terminally uncool. *shaking head* Check it out for yourself: Did you want to try that on?
