For All the Straight Girls Out There

Here's an interesting piece I found at AfterEllen. The title caught my eye - "Don't Quote Me: Straight Girls Happen".
As much as I bitch in this column about straight women who have kissed their "‘roommates"’ or best friends for notice or gain and later proudly call themselves "“lesbians,"” I'’ve never voiced my opinion about their bolder sisters :— the straight women who have actually allowed themselves to be seduced by real lesbians.

The author believes - I do as well - that women (all women) need and want to be seduced by their significant other (or the person they are with at the moment). In the case of straight women, she argues, there seems to be cult within this posse that doesn't fear a sexual encounter with a woman - but also doesn't claim to be lesbian, because she isn't.
The bad news, if you want to call it that, is that hooking up with a real lesbian won'’t make any straight girl gay, despite what you wish or what your mother may have told you. But the act does lift the bravest out of a balcony crowded with attention-starved wanna-bes, and drops them softly between the velvet, so to speak, center stage among the "“wanna-dos."
The wanna-dos do, all right -— they do like there'’s no tomorrow! They are free and passionate spirits who have graduated from —or have never accepted -— imitations. And I give them credit for that.
I'’ve actually given them more than credit. But I don'’t like to kiss and tell much either.
The article is worth a read. The dynamics of lesbians and the straight friends that love them have always intrigued me. When I say "love" I actually mean as friends - that line, however, often gets blurred, the realationship becomes fuzzy and often times you can't go back. There's a book here, I can feel it.

I've never ridden in a limo, but I had a mad love affair with a girl in high school that culminated with a heavy make-out session in the back of a bus*. And I'm mostly hetero.

*It is the source of some regret that I never let it go any further than that, but I was such a prissy good girl in high school - I wouldn't let my boyfriend go any further, either.

I believe we will soon see that many prissy good girls in high school have had mad love affairs with girls!

And I think the bus can count as a limo.....if I ever write that book you'll have to give me an interview!
