Do lesbians have their periods monthly

Are Lesbians Better Men?

Craftsmanship is not a question of gender. Lisa is in my room. Dowels and screws are spread out on the floor. I kneel on the floor and hammer nails into the wood of a drawer cabinet. Lisa looks hard at the paper in her hands and then lets her gaze wander in resignation while I slide the already assembled drawers into the cupboard. I breathe in relief and look at my work. In the meantime, Lisa has felt her way to the screws and is moving a package of them in her hand. I search the ground. Aha, there it is. I hand the screwdriver to Lisa. But she shakes her head vehemently. "I've never done anything like this before," she says firmly. I look at her in disbelief. “It's just a screwdriver. Come here. That is very easy. And put away the stupid instructions! We don't need them. ”With my encouragement, pointing and occasional intervention, Lisa manages to screw in the screws, fix the hinges and the rear panel and insert the door into the cupboard. It wasn't difficult at all!

"I don't do that. I am a woman. There are men for this kind of work. ”At this sentence my ears almost peel off in shock. I beg your pardon? I have to gasp for air first and think of an answer to something like that. “But I am also a woman,” it escapes me. Mmm ... was it sexist and flat in the same way? Am I one? Lisa is still there. She looks at me as if she had to explain something to me that everyone around me has known for a long time. "Andrea ...", she sighs and pauses. Her eyes lightly brush the ceiling. "You're a lesbian." What do you mean? Am I of a third gender, or are lesbians just the better men?

It is undisputed that I renovated our entire apartment with my own hands. I set about tearing down wallpaper, plastering walls, gluing and painting new wallpaper, with the help of my friend I installed sinks and cisterns, disconnected pipes and drilled holes in the wall, sanded down doors and shelves and painted them. It is also undisputed that I currently have long hair and put on make-up every morning, even if I sit at home all day. I wear skirts and dresses, albeit rarely. But even under such circumstances, the lesbian of the world always has the cordless screwdriver in her handbag while she tries to make the world a little better with yogi tea, spelled biscuits and football in purple dungarees.

Women who are too emphatically feminine are more likely to be ridiculed in the scene if they don't make up for it with a very specific character. Lesbians love strong, smart, creative, independent, adventurous women. What seems to scare men sometimes, we find irresistible. It is undisputed that a lesbian sucks her monthly period just like her girlfriend and knows what it means to be exposed to general social pressures to completely depilate. But be careful, women who love women can also be incredibly disparaging. There is then talked about women and the latest conquests like at the regulars' table in an inn.

What am i now A woman with a male element, a better man or just a lesbian? I think that also has something to do with life circumstances and lived roles. For me it doesn't make sense to differentiate myself too much from the male gender. Why also? Ultimately, I want to impress the woman who fascinates me and she impresses me. Since there are no men in this equation, I actually don't really perceive them as a variable for my image of myself. Perhaps that leads to this different approach to life, which makes a thought like Lisa's statement sound completely absurd.

Well girls I can't rely on a strong man I'll have to drag my sofa down from the fifth floor myself, change the lightbulb, and fix the toaster. That's not something that scares me, because people grow with their tasks. Necessity makes inventive and shows us all of our hidden talents. Yes, and we are all human somehow - no matter whether man, woman or lesbian.
