My most recent DA post is live today: The Misunderstood Life of a Queer Woman
I loved writing this one- it follows from a post long ago that I wrote, and is something that I think about often.
Here’s my intro:
“I identify as queer and really enjoy being with women. I have been with women sexually and dated a few of them, but I’ve always had a hard time with this idea that I “read” as straight.
I’ve had a difficult time dating women
Most sage advice recommends you don’t change yourself to fit some idea of what you should look like in order to attract partners. For me, I know I don’t want to cut my long hair in order to look the part of a queer woman.”
It was helpful to me to write this piece and to remind myself of the idea I close with:
“Embody the values you want to live by and the characteristics that arouse and charm you. Be your own best friend and let the rest fall into place.”
Go read the rest! :)
