The Lesbian Duplex 8: An Open Thread

women-talking

This space is for conversation between commenters.* If you have a link or article or interesting thought that’s not relevant to an ongoing thread, you can share it here. If a conversation on another post has turned entirely off topic, you can bring it here. And so on. Every so often, as the number of comments on a given Lesbian Duplex post becomes unmanageable, I put up a fresh post. For those who are interested, I also try to have regular open posts specifically on children and parenting is … [Read more...]

Introduce Yourself!

When I first started blogging, I never imagined I would end up creating a community.

This feature is designed as a solution to this problem. In the future, comment sections attached to posts on abortion should stick to discussion of the specific angle of the post, and general debating over abo … [Read more...]
