Straight women are swooning. Real Lesbians ™ and Real Queer Women™ are outraged. This week, the interwebs are all aflutter with girl crush fever. Apparently…
Today I finally got to see the new film, Girlhood (Bande de Filles), from the director of 2011’s Tomboy, Celine Sciamma. It’s not a comfortable experience but as a whole it’s a remarkable portrayal of a girl stepping into adulthood.
A few weeks earlier I’d gone out dancing with friends and I couldn’t get over how incredibly friendly the guys were. Eventually it dawned on me – they thought I was a guy and were hitting on me.
Perhaps it’s just that I like stories of marginalised women … Or perhaps it’s just its hilarious portrayal of lesbian sex. Either way, I’m happy.
I loved my neighbourhood a little bit more when I recently found a public toilet “reclaimed” for Humans.
