why did the word ‘lesbian’ have to get a dirty connotation? is it not enough that i had to reckon with my sexuality? now i feel like i can’t even use my own label without making others uncomfortable? and then there’s the whole stereotype of lesbians being ‘predatory’? it feels like i can’t be even the tiniest bit flirtatious with my crush until i know 100% that she likes girls or else I’m coming off as an aggressive lesbian? anyways i’m frustrated with both my own comp het and the way that society sees wlw thank you for coming to my ted talk.

How to subtly confess to your crush (from a Useless Lesbian) :

I am a big usless lesbian but here are a few subtle and creative ways of confessing to your crush (I did use one of them on my girlfriend 😅)

For both long distance & in person if you want to confess through text :

  • Confess through a poem - it can be as long as you want and make sure that it’s easy to interpret
  • Playlist acronyms - creatively arrange the song titles on a playlist and send it to them
  • WHOLESOME MEMES - don’t spam them but cute wholesome memes can give a hint and also can reduce the nerve from telling them in person

To confess in person :

  • Sing to them - if you can’t sing (me) you can lip sync
  • Make a cute sappy card or write them a letter - it’s easier to write it in paper than telling them face to face
  • Write it out on cupcakes or cookies - who doesn’t love a sweet treat 😋

These are a few ideas that can help you with confessing to your crush, hopefully it goes well if y’all do it.

So whenever I take a girl out on a date and we’re playfully arguing about who gets to pay I always say we should thumb wrestle for it.

My secret? Thumb wrestling is my super power. Haven’t lost a game in a decade. I will always pay the bill.

in a completely non-sexual way I need a butch (preferably a top) to tell me what to do. 

I’ve been procrastinating typing up the damn handwritten pages of my book and I swear to god I need someone to take control because clearly I cannot be bothered.

The sound of the rain against the window would be what rouses me into a half awake state. I listen for a short time until your breathing breaks through the rainfall and your familiar smell washes over me. Looking at you with blurry eyes and my senses full of the earth and you, I am the happiest I could be, and it is only morning.

I’m doing a research project on the history of queer poetry because i CAN and my notes are an absolute disaster. I included a Sappho quote and just said “if that isn’t gay, idk what is.” my notes that my teacher will read. Why am i like this?

lay with me on a snowy afternoon as we lounge by the fire. lay your head in my lap and drift off to sleep as i read you classical literature. i will close my eyes when i feel your breath slow comfortably, and we will sleep together in every sense of the phrase.
