Any breakup can be ugly. There are feelings to hash out, possessions to separate, and blame to assign. Breakups are understandably no fun for anyone. But in the world as I’ve experienced it, there ain’t no breakup like a lesbian breakup.
Perhaps it’s the way two women intermesh their…

We’ve spent a considerable amount of time this evening discussing whether the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival is actually something we’d want to experience. Here are some of the highlights of our discussion, as I wipe away the tears of laughter.
D: You know they require you to sign up for work in addition to buying a ticket.
B: Seriously? How much are tickets?
D: Not cheap, like $400+.
B: Then screw those hippie vaginas, I wouldn’t work AND pay that much.
D: I don’t think you have a choice. They walk you into the tent while you “volunteer” for work.
B: Could we work together, at least? I wouldn’t want to work somewhere without you.
D: Maybe we could tell them we have codependency issues, and HAVE to work together.
*few moments of hysterical laughter*
B: But then they’d force us to attend one of the Womyn’s therapy sessions.
On Chem-Free and Chem-OK Status
B: Can you bring beer?
D: It’s unclear. I think maybe you can, but other womyn can give you “gentle reminders” about your “chems”.
B: “Chem?” That’s offensive. It’s not like you’re dealing smack if you have a couple of Bud Lites.
D: They do provide support groups for those who wish to be Chem-Free. And you get to sit in the good seats at the shows when you’re Chem-Free.
B: Do I need to sit closer to know God-Des and She suck? No.
D: True. And if anyone gave you a “gentle reminder”, I think you’d likely knock her into next Tuesday.
On Clothing Optional Events
D: You know they don’t make you wear tops at this thing.
B: That’s fine as long as I can give the womyn with fun bags hanging down to her knees a “gentle reminder” that bras aren’t just for burning after she gives me a “gentle reminder” about having my “Chem” around her recovery group.
On Whether This is Our Scene
D: Maybe we are Dinah-style circuit party lesbians more so than granola festival lesbians?
B: All signs point to yes.
