Two separate reasons for posting today:
I read about a week ago about Carly and Tresne from MKR getting married in NZ
I was so happy for them and I really appreciate having them out in the public eye to look to because I have been feeling like I don't fit into the typical "lesbian" stereotype (which really is silly because since when are stereotypes completely accurate of an entire group of people?!)
Almost all lesbian couples I meet, there's at least one, if not both that are "butch" – doesn't wear dresses or skirts, hates heels and makeup and women's fashion, would rather watch sports than reality tv etc.
And I feel rather, well, disheartened because that's the opposite of me. I'm very "girly". I love cute dresses and heels and twirly skirts and going shopping. I love being girly.
And I find that attractive in other girls if that makes sense. Im not really looking for a butch partner. If I end up falling in love with one, then I guess that's the way things go but it's not what I would imagine. But it is what the world imagines. They are still stuck on the concept of one being the "woman" and one being the "man" in the relationship. I think that's wrong.
I am so glad that Carly and Tresne are showing people that it doesn't have to be that way.
Onto my other point. I tried to contact people from the Brisbane chapter of f2b using the form on the contact page, but haven't had a response. I'm very apprehensive to attend any meetings etc in "real life" because I am ridiculously shy and uncomfortable with unfamiliar people and places, so I thought I'd get to know some of the chapter leaders on here first just so I'm more comfortable if I decide to attend a meeting.
Anyone know how else to contact them?
