I'm probably supposed to be offended by this, but I actually find it unbearably amusing

A blog devoted exclusively to photos of men who are rocking the aesthetic of lesbians in their golden years. Behold, Bilerico readers, I present to you: Men Who Look Like Old Lesbians!

This is particularly amusing to me because, just this morning, a friend and I were having a discussion about how the lumberjack-like fashion of bears and lesbian-seperatists (plaid shirts, jeans, work boots, Birkenstocks, hair) put them a lot closer to each other on the food chain than either camp might want to admit. I know that most of the guys in these photos aren't bears, but...

Other items of note:

  • In the interest of full disclosure: Richard Butler (lead singer of the Psychedelic Furs, a band I really like, I'd just never seen his photo before!) looks like the kind of bookish older dyke I would have had a mad crush on when I was 15.

  • Bruce Cockburn manages to combine the aesthetics of THREE different women's studies professors I had when I was in college. The earring, the hair, and the glasses were each rocked by a different prof.

Oh, hilarious! I still have crushes on chicks who look like that! Also...

*I have a single dangly earring*

and have been known to wear a vest at times.

this is so bad; this is totally the aesthetic upon whom I crush! this is also why i won't get any dates until i'm 40.

Oh my. This is too funny. Just the pick-me-up I needed this morning. Thanks, Gina!

Andropause can be a crewel to the straight man.
That is funny.

Take care

It just supports what I've said all along, that gender-wise we're all a lot more alike than we are different.

I like to claim I'm half lesbian already. I'm friends with all my exes, I love fish and I'd wear natty sweatshirts all day if Jerame would let me. Does it mean this is what I can expect as I grow older? *sigh*

Great find, Gina!

You love fish? What does that have to do with being a les- OH MY GOD I JUST GOT IT.

Haha, this is funny, Gina.
