    So, when we go to Key West we like to stay at a gay/lesbian/straight guest house and have found some of the funniest, friendliest lesbians there.
    This time it was a couple from New Hampshire and one evening we were all walking down Fleming Street on the way to "A Taste Of Key West", (a wonderful chance to sample all of the best foods from the island restaurants) and one had mentioned that she wasn't a 'lipstick' lesbian as much as a 'chapstick' lesbian.
    My partner asked if you'd call a diesel dyke a 'dipstick' lesbian?

    She was laughing so hard and her partner was naming off the list they knew to tell that to. icon_lol.gificon_cool.gificon_biggrin.gificon_smile.gificon_wink.gif

    A "dipstick" lesbian is actually bisexual, because she'll put her lipstick on your dipstick.

    First, glad your Key West trip seems to have gone well. but sorry our own schedule didn't allow us to drive down while you were there. We've been there for Fantasy Fest, but not Taste of Key West, with which our KW friends are involved and always encouraging us to attend.

    As I mentioned to you, our preference is the male-only gay KW resorts, partly because we like clothing optional places. Interestingly, some of our female friends will stay at lesbian places when a number of us are in KW, like for the SMART Ride, but then we all get together and hang out at the bars & restaurants. Maybe one time we should consider a mixed guest house like you guys used.

    On the subject of different types of lesbians, I was thinking the other day why there should be any lesbian term at all. Straight women don't have a special word for them, of which I'm aware. We say straights for both men & women, and straight men & straight women when we want to distinguish by gender.

    So why not just say gays, and gay men & gay women? Well, in reality I know it's something that lesbians will never permit. One has only to look at how lesbians insisted on renaming GLBT to LGBT, an illogical change I still don't understand.

    BTW, maybe it has something to do with New Hampshire, but I'm surprised those women hadn't heard of dipstick lesbian before, as the alliterative flip-side to lipstick. I'll ask some of our lesbian friends here if that's news to them, too, since I thought it more commonly known.
