It sort of depends on the group or person I'm talking to. A Label is really just the word we use to explain ourselves... so if I'm with family members who are a little bit more refined (read: sensitive) than myself I'll say the word Lesbian.. but when I hang out with some friends who are in the same boat as I am I usually refer to us as "the boys", myself as a "****" things of that nature.... overall I identify as my wifes wife, my kids stepmom, etc. If I had to check a box on a survey I'd check Lesbian. But I like the word gay better.

I really hate labels! Even if you're straight up gay, I hate it. You're human, and that's the only label I accept!
But, if someone insisted on being all up on my sexual biz, I'd say *shudders* bisexual. But, I identify more as a lesbian, but since I am married to a dude, I don't wanna complicate my sexuality more than it needs to! LOL

I consider myself bisexual as well. My mother is a Lesbian but would much rather be called a dy.ke because she says Lesbian sounds like a disease and she doesn't like that because she is proud of who she is. That's my moms look on it.

I'm hetero-flexible panromantic

And for me, it's not a label saying your sexual orientation.. just like saying I'm a Canadian. It's not a label, it's who I am!

I don't do labels because it's complicated. Married to a guy though so really, that's all that matters for now I suppose.

I am not sure what the label is: Female in body.....Male mind/sex drive/roles.

Also only date men, who are extremely feminine...or identify as "lesbian" or "bisexual" female.

rachel, i know we talked the other day about this, but perhaps something simpler is just plain old broader-termed genderqueer.

I am Lesbian. Althought i dont feel there should be labels, but thats the way society is at the moment. I am a woman who prefers other women, hopefully one day people will be able to get past labeling
