21 Things Only Former Baby Lesbians Understand

    Baby lesbian = Someone who has just realised they might be an actual lesbian.

    1. At first you thought that everyone kind of thought about girls like that.

    2. And you just really liked Russian pop music and that's why you listened to "All The Things She Said" on repeat when you were 12.

    3. But soon enough you realised that not everyone liked boobs quite as much as you.

    4. And the reason you loved certain women so much was because you wanted to have sex with them. Not that you wanted to be them.

    5. Your first girl crush was probably on a straight girl.

    6. And for a while you probably thought that if you only wished hard enough she might like you back.

    7. After you realised you might be a *homosexual*, the next stage was probably googling exactly how one does that.

    8. Usually you ended up stumbling across some things you weren’t mentally prepared for yet.

    9. Eventually you probably came across The L Word and binge-watched all six seasons.

    10. Through The L Word you started to learn all the lesbian words.

    11. You then spent all your time absorbing as much lesbian culture as possible.

    This probably involved watching some truly terrible films (not But I'm A Cheerleader, that's a brilliant film).

    12. But watching Skins with your parents was always awkward.

    13. You definitely had a time when you wanted no one to know, and a time when you wanted EVERYONE to know.

    14. It felt almost mandatory to get some kind of dramatic haircut to go along with your coming out.

    15. Even if it's not your style, you've experimented with dressing more butch.

    16. At first it probably felt like you were the only lesbian in the world and you would never meet another one.

    17. And when you eventually did meet other lesbians it was very exciting.

    18. Before you did IT you stressed out about what lesbian sex actually was.

    19. The first time you held a girl's hand walking down the street was a big moment, but in your head all you could think about was EVERYONE KNOWS I'M A LESBIAN.

    20. The first time you got lesbi-heckled was probably equally traumatic and hilarious.

    21. At first being a lesbian sounded like the worst thing in the world, but now you wouldn't wanna be any other way.
