Vintage Univ. Of Wis. Handout Goes Viral: When You Meet A Lesbian -- Hints For The Heterosexual Woman
How times have changed!
A handout from a 1988 Women's Studies course at the University of Wisconsin-Madison helps straight women handle their very first meeting with a lesbian with grace (i.e. not running out of the room screaming, apparently).
Click the pic to embiggen, but some of our favorite morsels of advice dispensed in the handout include:
- If you must back away, do so slowly and with discretion
- Do not assume you and she cannot be friends. Do not assume you can.
- Do not expect her to be as excited about meeting a heterosexual as you may be about meeting a lesbian.
The instructor also asks students to experiment by pretending to be a lesbian for 24 hours.
Glad those students of '88 were well prepared to meet the gays in the real world after this course!
