    22 Things That Will Be Way Too Real If You're A Girl Who Likes Girls

    1. Spotting a lesbian in the wild can be tricky.

    Especially since everyone and their mother seems to be wearing a plaid shirt and a beanie these days.

    2. But there is definitely a secret lesbian uniform that some people choose to wear.

    Which is great, until two of you turn up in the same colour plaid shirt.

    3. It can be difficult knowing whether you want to be someone, or have sex with someone.


    Let's face it, it's usually the latter.

    4. Even if you have a girlfriend you still get that useful monthly reminder that you're not pregnant.

    Another month passes by where you weren't chosen for immaculate conception.

    5. Straight people are always asking how you actually have sex.

    They usually think it involves massive dildos.

    6. And they always seem to assume that it involves some kind of vagina-vagina wizardry.

    And you've tried to do this as least once, and then decided that it's definitely a myth.

    7. Sometimes it seems like the only time girls hit on you is when they want a threesome with their boyfriend.

    8. After you come out to people they'll start thinking that all your friends are you "special friends."

    9. Occasionally you use the world gay as an insult because you're so used to hearing it that way.

    But also you can say what you like, because you actually are a bit gay. 👯

    10. Some stereotypes are painfully true.

    It seems like commitment issues aren't all thaaat common in the lesbian community.

    11. But other's won't apply to you at all.

    No one should have a mullet.

    12. Meeting a new girl who is also into girls is a big deal.


    You will probably either try to get with them or immediately start thinking about who you can set them up with.

    13. Your representation in the media boils down to Orange Is The New Black, The L Word, and a couple of other bit parts.


    And 90% of the Lesbians in TV and film are super femme.

    14. And even though The L Word wasn't the best show you've ever seen, it's pretty much all you've got, so you've watched it all twice.

    And discussed who all your lesbian crew would be. No one can be Shane, she's not of this world.

    15. We had to wait like 6 years after Grindr first hit the scene before we finally got our own app that people actually use.

    And even though it's overly complicated, hard to work, and sometimes decides to send all your messages in the wrong order, we're very grateful for it.

    16. There is way too much group incest in girl-on-girl communities.


    There aren't all that many queer women out there, and those that are out there have all slept with each other.

    17. If your straight friends meet a lesbian they will try and set you up with her.


    And at first you’re like, “God, is it just because we’re both gay?"

    And then you remember that lesbians are few and far between and you're like, "give me her number."

    18. There aren't many lesbian bars so most of the times you go out it's to straight or gay men bars.


    Which isn't very good for your love life.

    19. And trying to flirt with a girl that you're not sure is on your team is a minefield.

    20. Nothing is worse than your first crush on a straight girl.

    Apart from maybe your first fling with a "straight" girl.

    21. Basically, to find other girls to get with you have to be savvy.

    22. Because a single, hot, girl who's into girls can sometimes seem like an endangered species.
