    Sex Slurs

    Sex Slurs

    This week we’re looking at sex slurs for queer women, from muff diver to p***y puncher to bean flicker. Leni and Brendy discuss the implications these terms have on queer sex, how the terms get power from societies patriarchal structures and segue into a discussion about queer sex education in schools.

    Gaydar

    Gaydar

    Gaydar, a mash-up of 'gay' and 'radar', is said to the ability to accurately pick someone's sexuality based only on observation or intuition. Leni & Brendy talk about the stereotypical traits used to assess someone using gaydar, the act of being visibly queer, and how right and wrong they've been with their own gaydar.

    Mary & The Girls

    Mary & The Girls

    The use of she/her pronouns by cis gay men - words like "girl" or “ honey” - is an increasingly visible trend, not to mention calling one another by traditionally female names. Leni and Brendy discuss the practice of switching gender pronouns as a way of embracing femininity and creating a shared culture around names like Mary, Nancy and Nellie, to name only a few.

    Gay Best Friend

    Gay Best Friend

    If there’s a woman on TV having relationship problems, you better believe there's a sassy gay stereotype giving her wise and insightful advice. In the early naughties, the gay best friend almost became a sign of status for the cultured, inner-city lady. Leni and Brendy break down how the GBF stereotype has changed from an accessory to the staring role and the importance of the gay male & straight female friendship when "coming out”.

    Lesbian Bed Death

    Lesbian Bed Death

    Lesbian Bed Death refers to the so-called phenomena that happens in lesbian relationships where sex declines and then ceases to exist completely. Leni and Brendy discuss reasons sex in long-term relationships may stop, how the theory frames lesbian sex and how it differs from sex with men.
