One day, I will look in the mirror and be proud of what I see 🤞🏻💪🏼
The beautifully written, yet shocking, ‘White Rage: The Truth of Our Racial Divide’ by Carol Anderson.
As with the books I mentioned yesterday, I am still listening to this book so can’t give a completely fair review of it. However, I have learned so much from it thus far, I can’t imagine my opinion is going to change much.
I am grateful to Anderson for sharing this book with us. I only wish I had read it when it was first released in 2016.
One word: Enlightening.
A deserving 4.4/5*.

Alrighty! So the lesbian subculture is great and large but there is a little bit of discourse about labels so Imma try and clean this up a little.
These are some slang words/labels the lesbian community uses.
100-Footer - Someone who you can guess is a lesbian from 100 feet away
Butch - A very strongly masculine lesbian
Blue-Jeans Femme - A lesbian who identifies as femme but wears more androgynous or masculine leaning clothing (little to no dresses/skirts)
Chapstick Lesbian - A soft butch or androgynous lesbian
Diesel D*ke - A very aggressively butch lesbian, often very muscular
D*ke - A reclaimed slur which means lesbian (Only lesbians can say this word, refer back to my D-slur post)
Femme - The fixed version of lipstick lesbian - a feminine lesbian
Gold-Star Lesbian - A problematic label which refers to a lesbian who has never had sex with a man
Hasbian - Someone who used to identify as lesbian but now goes out with men
Lesbo - Slang for lesbian
Lesbophile - Someone (typically a straight man) who watches lesbian porn while not being a wlw
Lipstick Lesbian - I’ve discussed earlier why this label was harmful but I’ll say it again; it was created both by a man and with anti-butch intentions
Lone-Star Lesbian - Another problematic label which means ‘lesbian who’s only had sex with one man’
Pillow Princess / Pillow Queen - A lesbian who prefers to be pleasured sexually than to pleasure others
Power D*ke - A lesbian who is powerful, or one who likes to wear suits
Stem / Kiki - An androgynous lesbian who does not identify as either butch or femme
Stone Butch - A lesbian who does not want to be sexually pleasured and prefers to pleasure their partner instead
Stud - A black masculine lesbian. This label is specific to black lesbians. My fellow white lesbians, stop.
I understand that these posts are getting shorter and shorter, but tbh I’m almost done with everything. Samhain and Halloween are the day after tomorrow my lovelies, and so is my last queer history post! It’s been a wild ride, but I’ve enjoyed every second of it!

pros of dating me:
honourable mentions: i have a british accent
cons of dating me:
Thinking about owning a bakery with my future wife
“do you listen to girl in red” was really just the newest version of “i like your shoelaces”/“thanks i stole them from the president” like let’s be honest here if you said these things to me in real life my soul would leave my body
