Yo Lesbos! What up? Once again, I've been slackin,' I know. Well, Lots has happened since you heard from me last. Firstly, I got a new girlfriend

She is seemingly perfect,too!(yes I know I have said this before. sue me). 

Firstly, she is a

and an atheist 

Like me. So, right off the bat, I know she is rad! Turns out she is also incredibly kind,caring, funny, sweet, and loving. 

Now, in addition to this awesome new life development, right up until the election, I was phone banking with Marriage Equality USA.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have made OMFG nearly 2000 phone calls for marriage equality in Maine, which brings me to the name of this post-
Not only did we re-elect President Obama

But we won in all four states that had marriage on the ballot! Oh happy day!

The tides have turned, dykes! We're totally on our way. Gonna be interesting to see what the next four years are like, eh?

New York, New York!

Well Dykes, guess what?!?! I finally made it to OMFG NEW YORK.

(Well I am in upstate NY, but the photo is pretty!)

So far, it has been an amazing experience. There is a wonderful LGBTQ Center, and I am on the membership committee! Wheeee for LGBTQ PRIDE!

The people there are wonderful, and I have made some awesome new friends. There are groups, and there was already a piano bar event! Whee!!! Further, the straight people here are gasp! LGBTQ friendly. Of course there are bigots everywhere, but this place is nothing like SC. What a relief!

Also, guess what? I am OMFG EATING HEALTHIER! Healthy food is in abundance here, and I can finally indulge my being a totally stereotypical lesbian and go all veggie on y'all.

Also, I can eat healthier and at affordable prices, whereas down south where I am from, everyone is into fried chicken

Ham hocks
and get the picture. Stuff that just ain't good for ya! But never fear, fresh eating is here! 

Also, and the best part is...drum rolllll...puhleaaasssee...

Getting Messages From Hot Girls After Changing My Location.

You heard right, lovely lessies. The more gay friendly environment means that more people nearby are out and proud, and, therefore, ready to hit up a screaming dyke like me!

All in all, New York Rox my Sox! Stay tuned for more!

Man Hating Feminist Dyke- Not I!

Whew! Lessies! I'm back. I hate that I abandoned this place for so long, but I have had sooooo much going on. Anyway, you lovely ladies deserve an explanation, so, alas, here it is! Firstly, I have been all caught up blogging for Veracity Stew. As a 

y'all know I simply can't give up the chance to voice the truth about the radical right. I have quite a few articles there, and that's my author link! Check me out! 

Also, I have been building my online IT business

as I prepare the rest of my life. 

I'm also totes single again (what else is new?) and really wish it weren't so. However, you know what they say..better to be single than with Ms. Wrong. 

But don't worry, this dykedellic place will always be my baby. I might lag sometimes, but I promise I'll always come back. It is important to have a platform though, which brings me to what inspired me to post here tonight. In my speaking out against the 

that the lady- hating GOP

is waging, I was accused of being...wait for it....


Now, this simply is not true. I absolutely do not hate men. I hate it when they won't respect my being a lesbian, when they make sexual advances, and, most of all, when they try to control women's health because 

but some men- and many ignorant, overly religious women- seem to think otherwise.

Speaking out against men making decisions about things that simply do not concern them and which they certainly don't understand does not mean I am a man- hating dyke. It means I am a smart, independent woman who knows her own mind, and realizes that the government does not belong in my vagina, and I don't need a panel of men to make my health decisions. 

Yes, boys, I am a 

But, for the last time, it doesn't mean I hate you. The end.

Officially Open

What up lesbos?!? Hope you are all well, and that you had a great
Independence Day

If you live here in America and you celebrate. 

I've had lots going on. Firstly, I've been busy working ALL THE TIME.

I have two writing jobs and a day job, so I am a very busy queermo these days.

On a more interesting note, I've also been 

falling in love.

Which is great, but we are taking it really slow. Also, guess what? For the first time in a long time, I found a woman who shares my views on open relationships. 

So, yes, as of last night, my new girlfriend and I are gasp!

Officially Open.

We have yet to discuss, you know, the all important Rules, though, so  I am not going to do anything with anyone until we have those down pat. This is a huge relief though, lessies, because, of course, as per usual, the relationship is long distance.

Now, this isn't a problem for me, because good things are worth waiting a reasonable amount of time for. Plus, I have changed my San Francisco plans to the closer and more practical gayborhood of Wilton Manors
(actual phot of gorgeous lofts in Wilton Manors!)

in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. While I wait for my lovely lady to be able to move I can go clubbing

and get to know the gayborhood. 

Of course, I'd rather have her there with me. She's awesome, and the thought of being without her for any amount of time makes my heart break. 

However, in the meantime, just because she is that awesome, and we are that sure of our own feelings for one another, I can have the occasional tryst with a pretty girl 

without a shred of guilt. Hell, we'll even talk about it.

How you like them apples, hmmm? I know I like them quite a bit. Who needs monogamy? 

At least for now, I don't. Being in an open relationship does not mean you don't love your partner enough to be faithful. On the contrary, it takes more love and trust than a monogamous relationship to be able to know that you are the only person for your partner, no matter who she shares sexual experiences with. I am glad that I found someone who feels the same. Thanks, babe!

 I, for one, am 
Proud to be Open.

Shannon is a Youtubing Atheist!

Yo, Lesbos! I am sorry I have not been around, but, Guess WHAT???

Well, after months and months of scrimping and pinching to make ends meet, Shannon finally has a gasp! Job. 

Yep, Lesbos, I am back in the restaurant world, working in a sub shop.

(You stalkers didn't think I was gonna tell you which one I work at, did you??)

Between that and freelance writing on Surface Earth, I have been one busy little dyke! Anyway, as usual, I am all over the net, promoting our cause, so you guys should like, totally check me out. I even gave you the link! Click!

But, on to why this post is here. Yep, dykes, I have crossed over into being not just an atheist, but a YouTubing Atheist.

Now, y'all know by now how much I OMFG HATE ORGANIZED RELIGION. 

Well, now, I have taken that a step further, dykes, and joined the thousands of youtubers who have decided to expose the harms of religion to the rest of the thinking world. What does this have to do with being a lesbian you ask? Well, I'll tell ya! Or rather, I'll show ya. Firstly, here is a video on the absurdity of the LGBT THEIST.

And, for the very last time, no matter how much you ask, 
Here is why:

I don't mean to sound harsh with that last line, lovelies, but I guess I am just way past tired of people telling me how wrong I am for that deal breaker. 

Anyway, again, I am sooooo sorry for my absence! Did y'all miss me? I promise to be more *ahem* regular in my postings. Hope you enjoy the vids!  Ta Ta!

Series: Dykin' It Up: Episode 10: Gaydar. Yes, It's Real

Hello, my dykedellic sisters! Hope you are all having an enjoyable LGBT Pride Season thus far! Best time of the year. It also offers an almost unending supply of Pride Festivals

at which to pick up hot chics if you are a single dyke

like me. do you know if a girl is gay outside super gay environments? 

After all, Pride comes but once a year. The rest of the time, you have to OMFG WORK to find other lady lovin' ladies. Because, unfortunately, thanks to sheer numbers, the next chic you hit on outside the gay bar is probably going to be hopelessly GASP!
(Yes, it's Reese Witherspoon, sue me)

And I think we all know that nothing puts a gay girl on the prowl into a never- ending funk

like hitting on a girl only to find out she's straight. She is off limits for obvious reasons, so this seemingly little detail is a huge deal. But..Never Fear! Gaydar is here.

Yep, you heard me right, dykes. Your gaydar can save the day every time, and you need to use it. Yes, it's real. Y'all know what I'm talkin' about, too. It's that unmistakable 
when you meet a girl and automatically know that she is OMFG QUEER. Doesn't matter if she looks femme

we still know. We always know. Chances are she knows you're queer, too. Yep, gaydar is real. No one knows what it is, we just know that it is. So what are you waiting for? Next time your gaydar goes off, just go for it! After all, the worst she can do is say no...and hey, we're all due for a happy ending...


So don't let anyone tell you your gaydar is all in your head, lady lovers. It isn't. I promise you. We are almost always right.

Happy Pride 2012!

Yep, homos, its that time again! Time to get roarin' for the annual 
celebrations. Now, my Pride Month will be rather uneventful, seeing as I have more practical things to be taking care of right now. You know, job.
All that grown up jazz. That does not mean that I can't celebrate, though! I am determined to wave at least one giant 

before the season is over. I haven't missed a pride in 13 years, and I don't plan to start now. I've already had a bit of preliminary festival activity

and it has been quite enjoyable. I hope all of you have fun this year and take lots of photos. Also, please remember those who have fought and died to get us this far, starting with the Stonewall Riots in 1969, which brought about the modern LGBT rights movement as we know it.

Series: Dykin' It Up: Episode 10: Great Stuff That Every Dyke Should Like

Yo, queermos! It's only been a few days since last we met, and at that time the great, Big, Burning, question was...

Is Shannon in Love ?

Sadly, lessies, the answer to that question is no.
But...never fear! I have a rundown of great internet stuff that should be a staple in the online life of every proud dyke. Firstly, a new find: Ms. Magazine.

(yes the words above are a link to their site)
Meeting all of your woman and feminist needs, this magazine is the one stop shop for all things girl. Pro Woman, Pro LGBT, Pro Choice. Full of fist- pumpin' 

Check it out, I promise you will not be disappointed.

For your second tidbit of dyke- friendly goodness, I give you Rosie Wilby. 

This lady is a smart, hilarious lesbian comedienne extraordinaire. For all you belly- shakin' laughing needs with a queer girl twist, she's it!

Lastly, but certainly not least...drum rooolllll please....


Yep, lesbos, I am coming out of YouTube Exile. After four year of having no videos on the internet, I now have one up, and many more to come! Here is the first, And you better subscribe, ya hear?!?!?!

So now y'all know what I sound like. ENJOY!

Am I in LOVE?!?!?!

Heya Dykes! I know it's been a hot minute since I posted, but I was away 

with only shitty motel internet. Apologies for the delay! I promise I got something that will make up for the wait! You see, homos, Shannon just might be on her way to gasp! 
Falling in LOVE!

Well, seeing as we just met yesterday, this proclamation is certainly more than a little premature. It is promising, though, because y'all know how long Shannon has been waiting to find OMFG THE ONE. You know, the key that fits into her ignition.

There have been many times it seemed this person had been found, but to no avail, so of course I am treading carefully. This time, though, it feels like it just might be that perfect balance.

Y'all know what I am talking about, right? Sometimes you just know, no doubts, no reservations. Looks very promising, as this person embodies all the things I love about queer life and then some. Firstly, and most importantly, Atheism.

And you fags know that is just about the biggest requirement dating wise for me. Even better, my feeling that

is shared, so I never have to worry about being offensive or respecting something that deserves nothing but contempt.

Secondly, Feminism.

with the understanding that 

thanks to the current GOP war on women, and is socially responsible enough to do something about it, so, of course, this person is also an Activist Like ME. 

What more could I ask for, you ask? Well, volunteering at 

with as big a passion for LGBT Equality as I have

Annnnddd...drumroll please! As if that wasn't enough, Vegetarian Eating!

Y'all know I love some health food that keeps you looking good and feeling even better. With my recent commitment to juicing

someone who shares my commitment to healthy, environmentally responsible eating definitely rocks, and is the tastiest icing on an already perfect cake.

Oh, and as if all that weren't enough, my Non Monogamous Ways are embraced!
Again, what more could I ask for?

Hooray for Compatible Lesbian Love!
