lesbian elder

story time👭

i was told i should definatley post this story so here we go!:

So I was selling Girl Scout cookies at a cookie booth this weekend, and this little old lady walks up to the booth to buy cookies! She looks to me like she’s at least 70 she’s really old. She’s super friendly talking to us and telling us about what it was like when she was a Girl Scout. So finally she picks out 5 boxes to buy and she says “you know I don’t really like these cookies but my, uh, my spouse Sharon did.” And she continued to tell us about her wife Sharon who died 2 years ago from cancer. Sharon was a Girl Scout leader and she was 6ft tall and she just loved thin mints. And then Margaret (she said at this point her name was Margaret) pointed down to her shirt (which was HUGE on her) and said it belonged to Sharon and even tho it’s really big on her she still wears it all the time because it feel like Sharon is still there hugging her. And she told us that they had been together for 28 years and really loved each other. Then Margarets old lady friends came over so she had to go and she said good bye and after she left we were talking about it and I was so happy to have met her because it just made me so happy to meet this elderly lesbian Girl Scout and all of the sudden the sort of sad mood is interrupted because the other girl in my troop looks over to me and says “wow Kaitlyn, she was the first gay Girl Scout I’ve ever met besides you!” and all I responded with was “it was an experience" 

Disney’s Dinosaur is an exercise in nihilism as the events of the movie are rendered null and void when taking the canon of the franchise into account. Aladar’s actions to save his family prove pointless as, sometime after the ending of the film, the K-T extinction event takes place and everyone he loves including his sexy dino wife, his newborn babies, his adopted lemur family and his interspecies elder lesbian friends are brutally killed in the impact. He only survives due to the actions of a time travelling scientist determined to bring a living dinosaur specimen back with him into the present-day. In this essay we will explore the nihilistic themes present throughout Disney’s Dinosaur and its extended canon by-

“This? Oh, this power armor isn’t regulation, but I’m a Sentinel, y’see, so I can pretty much do whatever I want,” Frank says with a smirk.

But seriously though… gay Aunt Josephine… Anne is telling her that she wants to be like her and not fall to the “frivolities of romance”, and Aunt Jo is like… that’s not like me at all. Then she says that she WAS the marrying kind, in her way, and that they lived a long full life together. She is mourning the loss of the woman she spent her whole life with. Anne getting advice from a lesbian elder is literally making me cry

There is this super cool older lesbian who got hired where I intern and every time I mention something gay she gives me the “knowing lesbian elder look” and I love it. She is making up for the other interns being idiots by being super cool, so that has been really nice ❤️

My work has a psychologist who comes in and evaluates the workplace and how we interact and how we are as people. She’s very nice to talk to and the part that makes it even nicer for me is she is an older lesbian with a partner. She’s pretty open about it, and so I’ve been open with her and that’s so affirming. We talked about the political climate and how she and her partner are bouncing back and forth on whether to get married. They don’t feel it’s really necessary but they also feel that in our current situation they should marry before that chance is taken away. 

Having elder lesbians around is so amazing and I just…..love em.

It fucks me up so much that almost every irl thing I see that’s specifically for lesbians is populated almost entirely by older women. I love my lesbian elders and I want to spend time with them and learn from them, but the idea of being the only lesbian in my age group that’s interested in that kind of thing is so isolating and heartbreaking. 

- scraped a w (87, 82)
- ate some tasty chicken strips and approximately 1 lb. of ketchup
- saw Alysha Clark take her shirt off
- became the fan fam from Fever Pitch after meeting all the people we’ll be sitting next to for the season, including an elder lesbian couple expecting their first grandchild, a young couple with a toddler and a newborn, a seventh grader and her dad, and my mom and me
- the man sitting directly in front of my had thirteen fingers and shelled an entire bag of peanuts during the game: I was mesmerized
- the woman directly behind me was breastfeeding the whole time and it was causing a ripple of anxiety as we were so close to the paint
- I barely watched the game because I was so distracted by Megan Rapinoe and her wife/teammates but after the game MY MOM MADE ME TAKE A PICTURE WITH ME AND SHE LITERALLY PUT HER HAND ON MY LOWER BACK AND I ALMOST FAINTED

My great aunts Cela and Mary- the estranged gays of the family until I came out- sent Allie and I a package with lots of vintage gay things. If the 80s, 90s, and 00s count as vintage.

We humbly accept this knowledge from our lesbian elders and hope to eventually pass it on to other baby gays.

Seek Out Your Crones

Last night my love and I went to a release party for the newest issue of Sinister Wisdom (#98 Landykes of the South). We went hungry for connection and community with our Lesbian Separatist elders, bolstered by our experiences at Fest and eager to learn. We hoped there would be other young womyn to bond with who still valued Female-Only and Separatist space.

Listening to the Crones recount their years of being Landykes living on and from and intimately with the land was an incredible experience. We heard about the ingenious ways that they figured out funding to purchase their land, and the cottage industries they set up to fund the minimal monetary needs of womyn on the land. One womon spoke of her life traveling and documenting wimmin’s lands, and how she finally came to put down roots right outside of Our Town. In the 70′s and 80′s, prior to electronic communication, it was common for our Dyke foremothers to just drop in on each other and travel from land to land to help out where they could and where they were needed. They spoke of beginning to see portraits of themselves in the bark of trees and the ways they worked to share their knowledge with every sister that asked for it. There was open discussion of the struggles and difficulties of the Landyke life, but every womon’s eyes sparkled with joy and laughter broke out often as they remembered their lives on the land.

We found our community, although we will be the youngest by almost two decades. There are Lesbian-only writers groups, and Lesbian potlucks, and they all get together for holidays, and there are frequent parties. The womyn tentatively asked us if we were Lesbians, and were surprised and relieved when we responded so enthusiastically that yes, yes we are. They no doubt expected us to be curious onlookers from the queer community, and we heard from several of them that none of the young ones call themselves lesbians any more. We all know this to be too true. The way to combat this is to join with our elders and begin to build a community for our younger sisters to be able to relate to and come to. We must take the pride and strength we feel from being Dykes and Amazons and Separatists and wear it on our chests as much as we are possibly able. We must give our cause positive representation.

It is important to seek out your Crones. Find out where they will be, and go there. Listen to them with respect and intention. Ask them where you can fit in to help strengthen our Lesbian community and keep our proud herstory alive. It is up to us now, and it is time for us to step up. I say this especially to my Fest Sisters, or any sisters who support the Intention and Female-Only space: you must go to them now. They need us as much as we need them, and it has become urgent that we find each other and begin to work together.

Hey so I'm the anon who was asking about conversion therapy and I was wondering what I should do instead. I'm still strongly considering it, but what should I do instead. I just don't know what to do. I just turned 17 so I cant make any decisions w out my parents. I'm just tired of feeling this way and I either want to be okay with myself or be straight. Thank you💖

You should try CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy, which helps you figure out why you dislike being gay and change it) or find lesbian-specific support.

In order to stop self-hating thoughts, you need to figure out what specifically about liking women makes you feel bad about yourself.  Dissecting your negative thoughts and feelings helps you to discover where they come from.

Talking to elder lesbians doesn’t hurt.  Remind yourself that your sexuality doesn’t define you as a person.
