the level of lesbian representation in media is bad as it is but the type of representation is pathetic too. it’s almost exclusively white, thin, feminine women playing lesbians. it’s hard to feel attractive and confident in our already marginalized sexuality when we don’t see ourselves portrayed in fictional relationships or at all. As you may know, anything that starts that way is obviously asking for something, and this is no exception.I'm reaching out to the readers of my almost five year old blog to help keep my blog running, keep my life moving, and keep my work progressing in the ways you've come to know and love.
Lesbian Tea Basket has been put on the back burner, as my computer will no longer play videos.I've also had to table some dire Word Press issues on the back end of the website (my RSS feed is still spotty), and cancel the hosting for the back issues of the Femme Cast podcast.Aside from the laptop issues, I've had some life struggles that have made it difficult for me to focus on building my femme-pire.Life as a freelance lawyer is not always as glamorous as I make it look, and sometimes I feel that all I can do is hustle hustle hustle, which leaves little time for quality content.As you know, I strive for excellence in all areas of my life, and this blog is no exception.Each blog post takes between three and twenty hours to write, code, photo edit and publish, with most averaging about six hours.I want to keep bringing you the parade of abundance that you come here for, and I simply can't sustain at the rate I'm going. Asking for help is hard, but I know if I don't get ahead, I won't be able to do the work I feel so passionately about.After listening to my friends and my heart, I've come to the realization that I need to open this up to the public. I'm finalizing my memoir, have several episodes of Lesbian Tea Basket just waiting to be unleashed, have so much love to spread, so much to share about the turns of my life over the past 6 months, and I can't wait to share with you!If I have I made you smile, helped you cope, given you insight, helped you climb out of a bad relationship, threw a party where you met your sweetie, brought perspective to your messy breakup, or made your life amazing in any other way, that's truly a reward of its own, but warm fuzzies sadly don't pay my vet bills, medical bills or buy a new computer. I've put together some really fun prizes that might be of interest to you, and some of my amazing friends have generously volunteered some work of their own.Of course, I'm hoping you'll contribute because this work is valuable and you want me to continue to be able to do so, but perks don't hurt!Please consider donating and picking up an awesome gift along the way! I was hoping to have them done by now but having a girlfriend going through surgeries and chemo has slowed stuff down.
