, and (as far as we know), there have been no reports of brains in middle America short-circuiting. The article in question is “Why Women Are Leaving Men for Other Women.”Although increased visibility for queer women in mainstream publications is a good thing, I will admit that a few things in the article bothered me.
In 2014, Mrs Yota decided to start her brave business venture, opening Tammy’s Thai Massage on Forsyth Street.In 2011, there were two out of 12 covers; in 2012, three.By 2013, there were five, nearly half of the year's available covers.Female sexuality cannot be reduced to an Almond Joy/Mounds commercial: “Sometimes you feel like a nut — sometimes you don’t.” There are plenty of queer women out there who never felt an attraction to men. Not all lesbians buck gender norms, and those who do not buck gender norms are just as gay as those who do. (Furthermore, members of the choir, can you send this memo to the general public, because the ’90s are over, and I’m tired of preaching.)Still, it is a good sign that a publication that has been traditionally marketed to straight audiences touched upon sexual orientation and gender.Gender identity/expression and sexual orientation are not always intertwined. I will take well-intentioned articles on sexuality and gender that slightly miss the mark over no visibility at all.
