Tag Archives: dyke drama
I have many questions about why society at large and specifically its het population do not tolerate us, but the queer community? What’s not to understand?
We’re people, not freaks.
I hear questions like, why must there be dyke drama – and it’s such a simple thing. There isn’t such a specific thing at all, it’s merely part of being human and being a small community.
Anyone need anything else demystified?
Hopefully I won’t need to draw a chart for this one.
Beetle and Hippy fell in love online. Obeying the traditional dyke impulse; that good ole urge to merge, they didn’t wait for the second date to move in, Hippy drove across the country and they moved in together. Sort of. They were in a sort of a kind of relationship. I can relate – I’ve done it myself. I’m not sure exactly how long it all took to implode, but implode it did. Enter Alter, who made friends with Hippy online. Hippy confided in her and was immediately challenged by Beetle, who had allegedly also made friends with Alter, who’d told her everything. At some stage, Hippy drove back across the country.
Meanwhile, in another city, on another chart, Softbutch moved a thousand clicks to escape a heartbreaking affair. She met Beetle online. Then she met Alter online. She suspected they were the same person. History does not relate whether anything actually happened.
From the original chart within this category, Sian, downloading email, got two emails in from Twitter – Beetle and Alter had started following her. She logged in to her account and … they weren’t. She searched both names and … they were nowhere to be found.
Spooky? Nope, just another day in the charts.
And now, a word from our sponsors aka ME! I have started an experiment to see whether I can make queer money from a queer blog. Feel free to check it out and click stuff.
Hero’s main lesbian connection is a strangely uptight and clean woman called Scrubs. Scrubs has been going out with a very cool butch called Dean for a few years. They make rather a surprising couple – Scrubs is all about labels and status and Dean is all about hard work and kindness. Dean’s a bit of a legend and has been out with her fair share of women locally – no idea about Scrubs. Scrubs is low-grade, low-level, permanently dissatisfied and constantly searches for opportunities to flirt with other women. She reckons it’s all just harmless fun, but Dean doesn’t like it one bit.
Scrubs thinks she’s cleverer than Dean, better looking; she thinks she’s just better. Dean thinks she’s in a serious relationship with Scrubs. Scrubs gets insanely jealous when other dykes go anywhere near Dean. There are lots of good things about both of these lesbians, but for morals, you’d shop at Dean.
Scrubs has two primary targets for this “harmless fun,” the first is Heidi – a good looking and rather androgynous bisexual woman currently in a long-term open relationship with a man. The second and allegedly more meaningful target is Fluff, who says she is straight, but who, rumour has it, has been the subject of much local gossip amongst people who suspect she might be attracted to Scrubs. Heidi is no threat; if there was a custody battle between Scrubs and Dean, Heidi would be firmly in Dean’s camp. Fluff’s an unknown and seems quite uptight anyway.
The reason this is Hero’s dilemma, is that Scrubs confides in Hero and Hero, frankly, disapproves of it all. Scrubs has also been trying to get Hero to facilitate a meeting between her and Fluff, without Dean present. Hero hasn’t a clue how to deal with it – what do you think?
