Dem youngsters, dey so goofy

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!Β  😦

Here’s the list, btw:

1) Vagected
2) Tw*t swat
3) Clam jam
4) Clitorference
5) Beaver impeder
6) Taco blocko
7) Scissorception

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. πŸ˜€

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?

    I’ve heard “boxblocking” for women. But the others are funny!

    I think for straight women who have never actually gotten to know any lesbians well, the first instinct on meeting one is to think, is she going to be like a guy in a woman’s body? hence the flirting by the kind of girls who do that with absolutely every guy they meet, married, single or senile, for yes, an ego boost. Because guys like being hit on, even if they’re not interested, or know they’re being played with. So why wouldn’t lesbians? but when you get to know some and you realize oh, they’re women, they think pretty much like the rest of us, except we have this weird penis fetish *g*…it’s like, “ahh!” light bulb. It’s just ignorance, and understandable really. That Effin’ Dykes blog is practically a public educational service.

      I think that’s quite perceptive, Fizzy. Not only straight women, but straight men sometimes make that assumption that I’m just “one of the guys.” Or a co-worker always refers to “the one who’s the man” in a given situation. *rolls eyes* Never had anyone refuse to shower with me, though. πŸ˜€

    Am I allowed to say that this is certainly not generational, or indicative of anything other than a particular culture… a culture about which I will shut up before I piss anyone off.

    It most certainly does not make you uncool.

    • Alyx says:

      You’re allowed to say just about anything you want, Becka. *g* But I’m glad you don’t think I’m uncool. πŸ˜‰

      • BickaBecka says:

        Not at all! Don’t let them make you feel bad, they are NOT a complete cross-section of any kind of society (except their own, obviously). If you don’t feel part of it, you’re probably not, and you shouldn’t feel bad because of this, nor feel forced into it. It’s okay to be yourself, and not conform to what they expect. πŸ™‚

  4. Cutey says:

    I’ve been accused of cock-blocking before generally because of people trying to hook up. I like the idea of clit-blocking.

  5. Alyx says:

    ROTFLMAO! Okay, I’ve heard of salvia, even grown it myself. But mind your typos, Cutey! One set of letters switched makes quite a difference! πŸ˜†

    (Thanks for the link, Becka! πŸ™‚ )

    I used to work at a centre that treats addicts *winks*

  7. Dreamgirl says:

    Alyx, me thinks you’re plenty cool, and goofy too. πŸ™‚

    I was directed to this blog by a certain someone (wonder who that could be). Although I find it very entertaining, I’ve never heard of any of these words..or even the practice they are associated with.
    Haven’t heard the term sport fishing either, that’s a good one!
    And I must live in a nation of total prudes, but the shared shower thing is completely unheard of! I’m certain no-one I know would get stripped off in front of a complete stranger. Is that normal in America?
    I suppose my lack of knowledge now means I’ll be keeping you company in the “terminally uncool” (your words, not mine) gang!

    • Alyx says:

      *LOL* I don’t think it’s a nation of prudes, but they do seem more “private” about bodily functions. Which is a good thing, believe me! You should’ve seen my trip report about the difference between British and American toilets! I so wish ours were more like yours!

      We do shower with strangers, though. In school, in locker rooms, at music festivals. πŸ˜† I personally am not a big fan of it, but I do admit it was very freeing to shower with dozens of women of all shapes and sizes and colors in the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival. Not to mention the hundreds that were walking around topless or bottomless or both! *LOL*

      Not to worry, Sandy. We terminally uncool types still get up to lots of trouble, as I’m sure you know! πŸ˜‰

    Cliterference lol that one was funny.. I must be immature

    • Alyx says:

      I don’t know you well enough to comment on your maturity. πŸ˜€ But I thought a lot of the terms they came up with were pretty funny!
