we wear bward shahts

hmm, i wonder what it would be like if every lesbian stereotype could be summed up in a 3 minute vid clip...


(from the DoubleBird youtube profile)

so labels...what do you guys think of them? i know lots of people HATE them. but if you do label yourself and others, what sort of lezzy are you? i cant figure out what to call myself. and i like labels. labels make things all neat and nice and easy. i also like words that have 4 letters in them. im a low maintenance, low key, caramel-and-british-chick-loving, (and caramel-ON-british-chicks-loving) sensitive lesbian wit' a big ol' booty and an even bigger heart. what are YOU?

Labels are good. I'm definitely femme. No one believes I'm gay because I supposedly don't "look" like it...

I don't belive in labels. I am a lesbian but I dont consider myself femme or butch or anything else. Simply put I am an individual who just happens to love women. If we start labeling oursleves then we might just as well accept the labels given to us by society whether they are derogatory or not. Labels take the uniqueness away from people. Thats just my opinion. What does everyone else think?

i'm a fan of labels, and for the same reason, i think. i like how they make things orderly and tidy and classified. i'm a sport dyke/butch, all the way. and proud of it!

im not that big of a fan of labels, but i've chosen a label so that it makes sense to others. i mean, when i think of labels.. yes it does make things tidy and neat.. but i also feel like it generalizes everything. i mean, someone may not be 100% gay, or 100% straight.. so what the hell do you define yourself? "bisexual" i suppose.. but then you might not exactly like sitting on the fence ALL the time. maybe the fence has a swinging gate which you easily slide through whenever you want.. or maybe you're taking a vacation from the other side, but the fence isn't a million feet tall.

yeah.. labels make things easy and quick.. but once getting to know a person... it all fades away. or at least, it should.

hey! it s not that i don t like labels... it s just that i have a really a hard time labeling myself! :S ... i m a newly "doesn't look that way"lesbian - not scratching out completely men - kinda sporty but still femme but not the "oh my god, i have a brain" type ... make sense?

So, on the lable thing-- I actually wrote a blog about this very topic just a month or so ago... I'm not to much into lables either but society is very into lables (think the new "branding" surges in American business) and I might as well be more pragmatic than self-righteous and think of one. I am not particularly femme, though I do love to dress well when the occation is right. I own dozens of pairs of shoes only 3 pairs are soccer cleats. Ellen is my fashion role-model-- so I'd have to say that I am a chap-stick lesbian.

i'm a femme, appearance-wise.

tomboy/soft butch personality-wise. :3

I pretty much consider myself femme with a touch of tomboy. Though, despite the pride I wear day and night on my wrist, people dont generally know I am gay, or they do and I am oblivious to it. I am looking more and more gay everytime I go out, lol, cause I get hit by women more and more. Anyway, yes I agree... I, too, like labels.
