C'mon, I Should Get An Award For Being A Lesbian

Long about a year ago, I ran across a little community blog called The Lesbian Lifestyle. There, I found a whole bevy of Lesbians blogging their little hearts out in one place. It was like finding the girl bar of the Internet! Good thing, too, because I don't go to bars and can't stay up past 10 pm when the music starts.

About the same time, it was running its first-ever Lesbian Blog of the Year Award. I thought, “Heck, why not?” And, sure enough, thanks to handful of devoted readers, I came in the top 5 and was a finalist. I even won—technically—but withdrew because I’m pretty sure I didn’t get 100 actual legitimate votes in 2 hours at the tail end of the competition--I doubted I had 100 readers at the time. Curly McDimple over at Ham & Cheese on Wry was awarded the prize—right on Curly! Fabulous Tina-cious was also finalist and I read her all the time.

Over the course of the last year, I did some posting over there at TLL. I read some great posts too. I hope you'll visit my daily blog, and if you like it, please go vote for the 2007 Lesbian Blog of the Year.

I mean, what’s the point of being a Lesbian if you can’t get an award for it? Can't get married, can't have equal protections under the law, but by golly, maybe I can win that beautiful pink award--hope you'll help!

Great post.
I'm off right now to vote for you.
You're right - if we can't get married (right now there is a divorce lawyer somewhere going D'OH over my breakup!!!) at least you should get a pretty award!

Nominations are being held right now - if you click the link in my post, Maun.

Susan, thanks so much for the nomination.

Mo - Thanks - knew you were fabulous! Must be in the genes.

Of course you deserve an award! And I am off to vote right now.
But on a serious note, what I think is even more important: gay people should deserve the right to get married and definitely should have all the same rights and protection by law, etc. as non-gay people. I am not gay myself, but I still feel very lucky to live in a country (the Netherlands) where there are no legal obstacles to same rights for gay people. I strongly feel that it is a disgrace to mankind that there are still countries, states and religions (!) that are against this.
