Forget the L word - to prove that I have kick ass taste in women, just look at my GF she is basically the perfect woman :)

That being said,

TINA IS THE poo. And she's not boring! She's just not psycho like most of the L word characters... I would classify her  as "normal," not boring... I would probably be boring too if I were on the L word... actually I would probably be Alice... but dress like Bette... 



I tried to email producers of the L Word to find out who Bette's stylist is. I LOVE the way she dresses. I'm still waiting to hear back. When I'm rich, I'm paying that person to buy my clothes.

I think there's a difference between who you'd want to "date" that show and who you'd want to hook up with. Tina does nothing for me. Shane could attack me any day. My girlfriend and I have a list of celebrities we are allowed to hook up with and it doesn't count as cheating. Shane is on mine along with Mary Louise Parker and Juliette from Lost. Funny, Kate from lost is actually on hers and Shane definitely is NOT - she thinks body looks like Montgomery Burns.

Shane is DEFINITELY not on my list, mine is: Kate from LOST, ScarJo, Yoanna from ANTM cycle 2, and that's about it :P For some reason I can't see any of the characters on the L word outside of having a relationship - I feel like I know them too well :P

I scare myself.


Uhmmmmm Pearl and Demandsatisfication.  You two are DEFINITELY paying for this board hijacking by litening to lots of talk about cute boys the next time I see you.   Considering how often I see both of you, I'd watch out if I were you...

Why don't I pay for it by going to 90% male Aut Bar and 75% male Necto this weekend? Oh wait I already have to do that because it's my job. :P


True.   I can't be at Necto on Friday, make sure that you hit on a few cute boys for me (I think you know my taste ;) ).

Also, this "poor me im going to a 90% boy place" argument doesn't work in your case since that's where you met your "perfect woman"   ;)

Pearl, I can't help but notice that you've left Bridget off the list...

Wait, I missed the L Word talk?  Tasha, ladies, Tasha.
That's cool how you referenced a case.

Dude, you're just having a great year!
J, if you didn't bring enough penis for everyone, you shouldn't have brought any penis at all.

Hey everybody, love the humor around here its great! but i've got a little question for you all... heres my situation...

I'm applying to law school in the fall probably in septemper/early october and taking the lsat in june and a pre class in a few weeks. The thing is my gpa sucks 2.5-7 bc I transferred from a private college up in the northeast where I was doing well at to the south (yeah.. Mississippi!?!?) to be closer to my mom who was going through a divorce - nice for her, not the best decision for me- but I've got lots of internships and volunteer type experience and worked all through collge pt. I'm going to be applying to law schools in the boston area, nyc 1 or 2, and maybe american pt and district of columbia in dc, and im liking franklin pierce too. I want to go back to a more northern, urban, gay friendly area. I want to work in a smaller firm or maybe even public interest doing something to represent people.. not out to be some big corporate lawyer or anything lol.. but im going for 3rd tier and some 2nd tier schools mainly..hoping to be around 160 for the lsat. I've been active doing gay rights activiss stuff to around Mississippi on campus and the surrounding area and its a little receptive to it but its definitely still the deep south...

... cant wait to get out of the south lol!!

so any advice? Suggestions? thanks!

Hey Sah,

Good luck!  If you've been doing LGBT activism and might be looking toward that for a career, Northeastern could be a good fit.  They tend to look beyond #s and generally favor LGBT applicants.  I'd also say write a KILLER personal statement and addendum explaining things and apply  VERY early.  You're going to need schools to "take a chance" on you, so to speak. The more time they have to look at your application and realize you're more than a number, the better.

Hey everyone...

I'm fairly new to the board but just had a question for you all... Does anyone know if LGBT applicants to Rutgers-Newark, Seton Hall, or New York Law School are favored in ANY WAY??

With a 150/3.61 and applying part-time to all three of those schools, I'm afraid I have absolutely no shot... I got accepted into University of Tulsa already and the LGBT Group president contacted me personally as a result.

Any thoughts??

Hey Dennis,

Well, LSAC publishes a pretty decent pamphlet called "Out and In Information for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Law School Applicants" it has ok info in the book and most importantly it has a list of all the US and Canadian law schools and whether or not they have openly lgbt faculty, and lgbt student group, lgbt specific classes, domestic partner benefits, and if the school considers lgbt applicants as a positive admissions factor. So, it has been a big help for me to see certain schools perspectives when applying.

I'm personally applying to NYLS in the fall and it says they have all of those things, and they consider being lgbt as a positive admissions factor. Rutgers-Newark has all of them as well, but Seton Hall has a student group, openly lgbt faculty, and lgbt specific courses but doesnt consider it a positive admissions factor.

Hope this helps a little, oh and the lgbt guide by lsac is downloadable from their website too or you should be able to request a paper one too. Good luck!

Principled.

So I had my first ever HIV test on Tuesday (came back negative :D), and the experience brought up a lot of concerns. I went to an HIV forum to ask some general questions in their off-topic area(since all the other forums were geared towards people who are either positive or questioning their status), and my questions (and I would venture to say that my overall  presence) appeared generally unwelcomed since I didn't appear to be suffering from anything, so I'm posting here where I know I have at least one thing in common with folks here (interest in law school), so I'd appreciate any of your insights on this:

--


I'm a 23 yr old African American lesbian who was tested for the first time this Tuesday, via a Rapid test. For quite a while I've known about the risks of contracting, but really didn't think much of them since I wasn't very active (dumbest reasoning ever).


Anyway, I was watching the Logo station on Sunday and saw a movie, I think it was called 26 days, though I can't be sure. In any case, I started looking up symptoms just out of curiosity and ran across the swollen glands part. I'm scheduled to have my tonsils taken out because the swelling hasn't responded long term to penicillin, which is kind of unusual (I would have thought mono, but penicillin would have made me break out into hives if I had mono, as it has happened to me before and is a common effect, says my GP). Then I noticed the swollen glands under the arms symptom, and this was a huge red flag for me, since my ex complained of this and I saw scars under her arms. (she turned out to be a compulsive liar, which is why I became so worried so long after breaking up with her--2 years ago).

Fast forward 2 years and I'm thinking about those scars I saw. and the fact that she claimed she was sick....by what? who knows? But I'm thinking..and thinking.. and by Monday, I was scared to death. Why did I never think about getting tested long before now?? What an idiot I am. Especially because I have a current girlfriend, who I've insisted we get tested before we go any further intimately. Such a dummy. So I was terrified for all of 24 hours and frantically got myself to a clinic and was relieved to know that both of us are negative (we got tested together). And I feel like we are in the clear now. Finally. Except...

We had a discussion the other night about protection. Even though we are quite committed and trust one another, is it ever really okay for us not to use protection? Our guess was probably not. And here's just a general question, is it ever smart for monogamous couples to not use it? Ever? I mean, I'm fresh from reading about our New York governors and LT governors, and I think it's a prime example of why we can't. But maybe I'm missing many other insights. But I'd like to see what I can learn here in this community, if I can.

I hope to hear from all of you soon.

---

Aside from all this: happy weekend everyone. enjoy the l word season finale! Can't believe it's ending already. I hope the last season is promising. Just from watching this season's, I feel like it will be.
