Straight girls in the gay bar

Hey hey hey

I'm sorry for being a total dork and not updating...I don't even have a good excuse all I've been doing is watching old episodes of Judge Judy and eating cake mix.


Well I am home and offically graduated (with a first Ithank you) and I a offically unemployed and hating my life. I've been reading my back entries here and wish I had a fun exctiting lesbean topic to catch up on but t'would all be lies as the only lesbian thing I have been doing is texting my lesbian pose on the mainland and hating the fact there are no gays in Belfast.

But aside from laying in my pjs all day and drinking too much milk I have found time to go out with my straight girlfriends and they inadvertedly inspired a subject for me.

why are straight girls so intrested/afraid to go in gay bars?

that's it that's the topic...

ok so recently I had to miss Liverpool Pride to go to a friends birthday party and durring conversation the topic of where we should go came up. I suggested a well know gay bar here called "The Kremlin" and a very homo friend place called "Black Box" which are both pretty fun places to go on a saturday night due to the music they play. This was greeted with nods from a couple and then with downright fear by the others. One of my st8est friends piped up "I'd be kinda afraid to go there I mean...what if...something...." and she went quiet clearly uneased by my dykish pressence. But what if what? a girl hit on her? surely this friend had had boys she didn't like hit on her at some point so what was the big dilema? was she afraid a tribe of justin beiber look alikes were gonna lick her and claim her as a sacrifice to the mighty goddess lesbiannia? it made me a little sad that a lot of straight girls are still afraid of us lil ol' lesbeans, surely they don't think we're so dumb and beast like that we actively seek out straight girls to de-flower and beat...sigh I think sadly this may be the case.

Then there are the other straight girls who want to come see the freak show, to be disgusted and delighted by the "un-natural" goings on when people hook up. These adventuerous types also annoy me as they too treat us like animals that need to be observed and apart from a certain ex-girlfriend of mine we do not act in that beasty way.

It makes me die a little on the inside that in this age of SKINS and Sugar Rush that going to a gay bar is like some sort of epic quest or gruesome trek for straight people. I am often dragged to loud obnoxious places where the straight couple seem to be attempting to both devour each other and reproduce in one act and I have little choic in the matter it is everywhere I look. It is a horrible double standered that needs to disappear.

This whole scenario made me aware of how some of my straight friends treat me, as a cautionary tale of what may happen to them. And is perhaps a reason it is often tricky for lesbian ladys to be accepted by their straight friends, there's that constant question in each others minds "does she fancy me?"/ "does she think I fancy her?"

And also it is not my fault the straight bars play crap music on a saturday night

About three years ago, I had never been clubbing before, so one of my gay guy friends insisted that he take me out with a bunch of his buddies to lose my clubbing virginity. They took me to one of THE most popular gay clubs in West Hollywood. And literally three minutes after I walked into club, some lesbian girl came up and asked me to dance. Being my awkward dumbashe self, I kind of stood there with a dumb smile and said "um"... because I half-wanted to just go along with it and have fun, but didn't want to lead her on. My guy friends shooed her away and told her I was straight. I wanted to tell her sorry and like "hey, I can't dance and like dudes, but am here to have fun so why the hell not?", but the club was so big and loud and strobe-lighty that I couldn't even see a thing.
And it's like...I know I didn't intend for it to come across that way, but she's forever going to remember me as being that douchebaggy straight girl in the gay bar. :|

well that's unfortunate but at least you weren't grinding on her for the amusement of some middle aged man.

I know I'd be totes willing to take you to a club and dance with you even if you were wearing a "Team Edward" tee shirt

Ashley said...

OMG, really? See, I'd probably BURN anybody wearing a "Team Edward" tee shirt, then dance around the body.
