Lipstick lesbian. That's what I am. I suppose. Though I hate labels. Dyke. Butch. Femme. Gender queer. Stone butch. I'm blanking on the others. But there's a ton. The L Word is throwing the topic around. Not through the words so much (though there was Moira's reference to Shane, "Come on, we butches can get it" referring to the heavy carrying of luggage), but the differences within the lesbian community are just as vast as any other spectrum or grouping in society. A lot of it is exposure, small town, big city, rural, and socio-economic: we know what we know and live within our bubbles. I identify as queer moreso than lesbian. But on the exterior, I'd probably fit the lipstick lesbian scenario: I like dresses, perfume, make-up, and anyone who knows me knows I like to do my hair. Hell, I think everyone in my blogosphere knows about my hair.
But on the weekends, during the day, I don't wear make up. I wear my hair in ponytails.
Kind of like this when I was 10:
So there's Self Portrait Tuesday, peeps. Until next week...
