I just watched "Prey for Rock and Roll" last night. Between Lori Petty and Gina Gershon...

Anyone have any other hot movies to watch? Or women you crush on that you want to share? Or both?



Ok...so totally NOT a parenting issue.. but hey, we're women too, not just mama's right?

...Michelle Clunie (Melanie on Queer as Folk) is absolutely beautiful. I think I like her b/c she looks nearly identitical to my DP.

We have a secret L-Word addiction in our house : We don't have cable, so We got the first season in tape from my moms, and HATED the first two episodes. I was convinced it was essentially " bad Lesbian soft core porn for straight people" However, one afternoon while we wer both down with the flu and DD was napping we popped it in due to exhausion and nothing better. We are now HOOKED! I first thought Marina & Kit were serious hotties (NOT anywhere near as cute/sexy/brilliant as my Dp , but fun to look at). This season though, Jenny got really cute and butchy all of the sudden. I HATED her in the first season, I was sooo pissed when they dropped Marina & not Jenny.

I really have to see the L word now. I think I'm the only lesbian on the block who hasn't seen a single episode ( i don't get the channel). I keep hearing about it. Everyone seems to have a love/hate relationship with it.

Another L-word junkie here. Yes, it is basically a lesbian soap opera. So what?

Shane has my vote. I have even looked at her fan website. : And, kd lang. And... I have to admit, it's the butches who do it for me, and there just aren't enough of them in the media...

Nope -- you have company. One of these days I'll see it.

Oh come on, I thought this was discussed a few months ago - it would be kind of weird to have this thread in TAO or media, but the Queer board is specifically in the "parenting" section, for better or for worse. I thought as long as it was queer related it was fine - I mean it IS labeled fluff thread.

Personally I think the queer board should just be in "finding your tribe" or something. We talk about TTC, etc. which really fits in other areas too, and no one throws a fit.

ETA - I forgot to say I also have never seen the L-Word. :

But if it was in TAO, I would have a better chance of finding it an adding that I am absolutely in lust with Sandra Oh.

That said, I don't know if she would make a great mom. (There now its about parenting, too!)

Nice try -but no. :LOL

It is not a catch all board. It is supposed to be for parenting issues as related to being GLBTQ. So no, not all queer content goes here.

So... isn't one of the couples on the L-word trying to concieve? How are they going about that? To they plan to breastfeed and use cloth diapers? Will they both lactate, or just one? Do you think they plan to have a homebirth?
How does this compare to your experience as a queer parent?



Sandra Ohhhhh.......

SPOILER ALERT!!! IF you haven't seen the show and don't want to know what happened, DO NOT read on!














They did conceive. They had the baby in the last episode of Season 2. The first try was at home, that resulted in a miscarriage.

They originally wanted a home birth, but had to move to the hospital

BTW, my DW started watching the L-Word, and somehow I ended up getting hooked on it too! I didn't intend to.

Yup, me spoil too.....




don't read this if you haven't seen the end of season two!!!!!!







I think that this still belongs here, since it does have bearing on how we (as glbt parents/people/couples) see ourselves, and the world around us, which I believe also has a bearing on our parenting. It's creating safe space, even for Lesbian Fluff!

That being said, I think the most excelent thing for me last season, bar none was the Tina storyline. I think it is the first place ever, anywhere, I have seen a visibly pregnant woman portrayed as a sexual/sensual being. I thought that was so cool! Sometimes I feel like once women get pregnant we are erased as sexual beings. Also, even though so many of our families are multiracial/multicultural I think that is invisible in the media also, I just fear they are going to do something to kill the storyline! I really want to see what they do with two mama's raising a multiracial Dd both with their respective histories. I was also VERY bummed when the planned home waterbirth turned into an emergency C-section. I wish they would have had the guts to do a homebirth on the show.Funny side note, On the six degrees of lesbian seperation. I was in the same Act-up group (briefly) as the producer and one of the actresses years ago, when they were a couple making a movie together that became pretty famous. The movie shows the neighborhood I grew up in in lots of detail,and was very cool if you've never seen it, it's called Go Fish.

I thought the hospital transfer was irresponsible of them. I mean, sure, lots of homebirths end up in the hospital (mine included), but most don't. Couldn't they have stuck with the 'most' seeing as we never get to see homebirths in the media? And, very few homebirth-hospital transfers are done in an ambulance. Not an emergency most of the time. Why'd they have to make it all dramatic like that?

But, I also loved the pg sensuality, I just hated who she was having sex with most of the time!

And, let's see... I watch this show when I need to escape after a hard day of being a SAHM. There! It's about parenting!

If you haven't seen it, and don't want it spoiled, don't read below!














For those of you who have seen it, what did you think of the home insem scene? Realistic? Good? Bad?

What are your thoughts?

Adina, I am confused!
There are a dozen threads below this one along the lines of "I am married to a man and have the hots for this other woman and am thinking of pursuing a sexual relationship with her; my husband may or may not participate, etc...." Those threads have nothing to do with parenting.

I am struggling with understanding this space.
1) I KNOW it should be for gay parenting (which as I have pointed out before, is the smallest tiny percentage of threads. We have been trying to change that, though as more lesbian moms are coming out to post)
2) I know the biggest share of threads and most views are the poly/intimacy type subjects. Threads more about how to manage and create open relationships and intimacy.
3) So this particular thread is called "Lesbian fluff thread." I think it was posted in the spirit of those lesbian moms who are finally beginning to connect and build rapport with each other. For it to be moved, while the many other non-parenting threads here get no similar comments, it feels weird to me.

I really wish we could figure out the categoriation of space in a way that makes everyone comfortable. I have seen Cynthia's recent posts on Parents as Partners that sex/intimacy/relationship problems are not something MDC wants to host space for. I am on board with that and feel that would be a good thing across all the forums, including this one.

But I do think "fluff" threads in which lesbians or bi-mommas build community and rapport with each other is advantageous. In order to provide support for the specific parenting problems we will encounter (like our kids getting harassed for having two moms), it helps to build a rapport with each other through chit-chatty conversation. KWIM?

It leans me back to us having space in a Tribal area or something.
I wish we'd get a dialogue going about where things "fit"! So we all feel like we know where things go

Kincaid - that is some of the issue..we are trying to work out where these things go - I agree that building community is part of this board - which is why I leave so much here.

I also agree that some of the thread currenttly in here do not belong here.

But at the moment - without a clear definition of what goes where and a space for you to build community in that manner, things are staying here. I am just trying to remind people that some threads don't go here.

Just pointing it out. Trying to work with you rather than just moving stuff and making you deal with it.

You are right - the focus is going to become more clear, and things are going to change a little bit in here. I feel that some of the genuine parenting stuff is getting lost to the community building threads...you know? And since I would like this community on this board to really thrive, and be a vibrant part of MDC, I would like it to be an active board! Not just the thing that people post to when they want to talk about celebrity crushes, or the odd stray post about how to talk to kids about being GLBTQ...you know?

I was SOOOOOOO Disappointed in the birth scene. I was actually pissed. So many people watch this show and now they created this image that homebirth isn't safe. I really want to write a letter or something cause I'm not happy.

But as far as celebrities that are hot... Winona Rider is always top on my list (even had her as my avatar for awhile ) and I Shane is totally, totally hot.

Clea Duvall all the time, but especially in But I'm a Cheerleader. The way that woman walks, smokes a cigarette and wears a black button down gets me every time.

Edit...I'm bad and didn't read the whole thread...I hear she's married...maybe she and her wife will have children and join the boards!! (ok wishful thinking).

Gee Whit, I guess YOU know who she is 'eh?

So I got the first season of the L word from my friend. Now I'm hooked! I'm not usually a TV person, but for the last 2 nights I've been glued to the tube!
What fun!
