I’m a woman, who happens to date other women.
When I walk down the street, people stare when I hold another woman’s hand. They question how we know each other.
They say things to us that they would never consider saying to a straight couple.
We are singled out because we are different. It’s weird though, because we don’t feel different.
I don’t think of my self as being a lesbian couple. I see us as a couple.
People have their own idea of what a lesbian relationship looks like, and if someone doesn’t fit that bill, then it’s really hard for people to understand.
And not understanding, apparently, opens the door for a line of questioning.
