In a forthcoming papertwo Stanford researchers used a deep neural network to detect sexuality from profile pictures on a US dating website. The internet was aghast. The authors themselves raised the spectre of Orwellian surveillance.
Barbara Gittings died of breast cancer Sunday. She was a lesbian activist since olden times. Everyone decided to dress very conservatively, to help make their point that they were just like everyone else and deserved equal treatment.
In Slate's latest installment of "Ask a Homo," where readers submit questions about all things queer for a chance to have them answered by Slate's LGBTQ section, editor and culture critic June Thomas answered the age-old question straight people seem to have about why we lesbians sometimes dress and cut our hair in styles traditionally adopted by men. In her response, Thomas mostly explains that the reason that lesbians dress and cut their hair in a style that appears to be more conventionally masculine is simply because of the fact that they can, and because our lesbian foremothers set a bad-ass precedent of dressing however the hell they wanted. It's also important to remember, though, that there are lesbians out there who don't cut their hair short or "dress like men" and who don't wear their hair long and dress in a conventionally feminine way because newsflash, there exist other ways of being that are outside of feminine and masculine presentation. While dressing and cutting your hair however you want is about freedom of expression, I want to offer some other suggestions to the curious minds out there who can't seem to grapple with the fact that sometimes lesbians present in more traditionally masculine ways.

This looks like sharing resources with chosen family, exploring and nuancing our gender expressions, queering reclaimed rituals and ceremonies, and archiving our existence through art every step of the way. This photo series captures and celebrates the beauty of how contemporary Femme and Butch people express themselves autonomously and in relationship to each other. There is so much love, passion, and pride in these pictures. This is what liberation looks like.
Like medieval German poetry, lesbians and bisexuals, heteroflexibles, queers, pansexuals, and womyn-loving wimmin are frequently misunderstood. Who are these mythical beings? What do they wear now that hipsters have appropriated flannel?
Sign in. R min Drama, Horror, Romance. Diane's feelings for Jack -- the girl she met over the summer -- begin to manifest themselves in terrifying ways when she learns that her friend will soon be moving away. But seriously, all this has such a minor importance in the movie that you barely see it it must take 5 minutes in total dunno why it's so "big" in the trailer O.
