I'm a Bisexual Woman Dating a Man

Despite my hesitation to call myself bi, I call myself bi to simplify it for others. I don't really fit in with the LGBTQ+ community, but one thing that is particularly noticeable is how straight people react to me. There are quite a few things straight people say to bi women, which really should never be said to them... but they still are said....more
I am so very happy to see a post like this -because it's really true.  Being bi (and especially ... more

Don't Be Selfish By Having a Child-free Wedding

This summer, my husband and I have approximately 10,000 weddings to attend. OK, that's an exaggeration, but it definitely feels that way. In and of itself, our plenitude of weddings are a good thing. Drinks! Dinner! Butter cream frosting! The only problem with all these weddings this summer is that the vast majority of them don't include an invitation extended to our offspring....more

So, Would You Date a Bisexual Guy?

Editor's Note: This piece was first published in April, 2009. I enjoyed the discussion of sexual fluidity and gender identity. For Pride Month, I want to feature more BlogHer posts that discuss queer identities when it comes to dating, love, and sex. - Feminista Jones For someone like me, living in oh so open-minded Northern California, the tabloid press stories about celebrities’ sex lives are kinda puzzling.

Disneyland & Beyond: Where to Eat in the Anaheim Resort District

Disneyland may be its own world, but it's at the center of the Anaheim Resort District, a swirling galaxy of hotels, restaurants, and shops. Which means that, even outside of the park's hedge-ringed atmosphere, you'll find a multitude of places to get something to eat. ...more
