Lesbians Are Just Like Dodgeball

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being a lesbian is like playing a really intense game of dodgeball.

So says professor, “social scientist,” and lesbian Kimberly Dark, who discusses “what it means to be a middle- age femme dyke that’s dating” in her one-woman show Dykeotomy, playing Thursday (Nov. 5) through Sunday (Nov. 8) at San Francisco’s Center for Sex and Culture.

Dark believes the choices lesbians make in their daily lives require a lot of dodging.

She explains, “If you dodge the right way, there is great pleasure to be had, like when considering topping, bottoming, or using a strap on. If you dodge the wrong way there’s potential danger.”

For example, a lesbian might be screwed if they’re masculine looking because ignorant people will ridicule or pick a fight with them.

Dark laments the amount of women who have transitioned into men, not so much because of the danger they’ve put themselves in, but because it’s “shrunk” her dating pool.
