What’s the worst part of being a lesbian?

What's the worst part of being a lesbian?

I’d be lying if I said that being a lesbian was perfect. But it’s pretty damn close. I just can’t explain how right it feels.

That being said, it doesn’t come without hardships. Here’s a handful, because that’s honestly all I could come up with:

1. There’s a much higher risk of drowning in hair during sex

Maybe that’s why so many lesbians choose to cut their hair short. It just makes practical sense. Otherwise, there’s hair everywhere. In your eyes, your mouth… and your drain, but that’s another story.

2. People always think you’re sisters

Or best friends. Or cousins. Or mother-daughter.

3. You have to deal with people “offering their acceptance”

Why strangers feel the need to verbally approve of who you love is beyond me. But it happens – all the time.

4. If you sync up, all hell breaks loose

While there’s no shortage of tampons, there’s also no shortage of hormones and mood swings and animalistic chocolate cravings. It can make for quite a bloodbath – no pun intended.

5. Two opinions are not better than one

In our house, we have a magnet on our fridge that quips, “Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right and the other is the husband.” As you can imagine, when both parties are wives, you fight to the death.
