Description:When we tell society that we can and will live out our lives exclusively partnered with other women and as we build families with other women, we are also declaring that men, for us, are not essential to achieving a full and happy existence. The mere fact that I exercise my right to be out and to make a marital commitment to another woman, rather than abiding the heterosexual norm, grants me ownership of this stereotype as well. The way in which I view the world tells me that what I and my lesbian sisters have accomplished without the authority of men may very well set us apart. Although some may have had the privilege of growing up in households with more progressive and woman-centric values, at the very least, the world at large—whether inside our homes, outside our homes, or both—advised that relying on men would be a crucial part to achieving success and happiness. Dare I say stereotypes have negative stereotypes? While lesbians vary in our lifestyle and identity, appearance and presentation, and even in the ways in which we create and execute relationships, we all share one thing: When I made the transition, as a clueless year-old, from life in small towns to the larger city where I live today, I was loved and embraced by a group of gay men who will always hold a piece of my heart.
