Equality and Gender Roles Do Not Co-Exist When a Woman Loves a Woman


A great post about important topic! Like the age old question: “Who is the man and who is the woman in the relationship?” A question often asked of same gender couples. Some ask humorously. Some ask seriously. But it is perhaps the most illustrative example of gender role conformity at its worst.”

Gay Girl Revolution

Society had it all worked out in advance for me. All the time growing up, the message though implicit was loud and clear. Any of my future romantic endeavours would concern the male kind, because I’m female. This presented difficulties when I came to realise that I liked girls, and not boys. I couldn’t fulfil my gender role as was set for me. I fell short of society’s expectation and this came at a price. I thought I was “different” on foot of this. I felt I couldn’t be who I was, who I am, who I’ve always been. But I didn’t know any better at the time.

  1. PS: I’m loving your banner image. It made me think to change mine. Which is probably a good thing as the photo on mine is of the tree we planted on our babies graves, so since we need to be looking forward I need to find a new image that encapsulates that.

    • Hi!
      Did you have your latest insemination already? If you did, which DPO r you in now? Tons on baby dust to you! We wish you got lucky this time and that you will get BFP and all goes well!❤

      • Hello🙂 we expect I ovulated last night or today. So we did our last of 4 inseminations this morning. So no dpo’s yet lol. We are going away on Thursday in a holiday in my uncles’s campervan to the North where I am from, so will be busy for the TWW which is a good thing🙂

      • We hope that TWW goes fine and fast and that you dont have to count days that you will just soon realise that you’ve missed your AF and you will get BFP! We’re keeping fingers crossed here🙂

        (btw, did you get my email like few weeks ago?. Check your email and reply if you find the message, if you don’t I can send it to you again…)!
