Yea! 6 Disks of folky lesbian music arrived today.

2 from Jamie Anderson

4 from Dar Williams

And now I my conscious can feel clean for those mp3's.

BTW, why is that "woman's music" seems to invariably mean "lesbian music"?

But you'd think that there'd be some straight women who are concerned about feminist issues, who liked music that was positive about women.

Oh Yes, Now I remember, the way that society attacked feminism was to claim that any woman who was feminist was a dyke.

Which didn't bother the lesbians that much, but did work to silence some of the straight women.

(And I have no idea what the bi's would be doing in this analysis.)

Straight women listen to womyn's music too... they just blend into the crowd *g* Dar Williams came to play at my teeny little campus, and sadly I missed her, but I pretty much guarantee the entire audience was straight. I guess women like to support women, so if you are in a crowd of women you are more likely to hear about spiffy female artists before the rest of the poor schmucks that rely on mtv.

Okay, so I was jumping to conclusions based on stereotypes with only little tiny bits of misinterpreted data to back it up.

Though I bet at the dar williams concert the ratio of straight women to queer women was lower than normal. (And I further bet the queer women were more visible than usual.)

here I was thinking I was up later than you for the first time *g*

erm, actually it is a kinda religious college... and they aren't too keen on the whole lesbian thang *g* so if only one lesbian showed up the ratio would have been all messed up : )

It'd be really tough for you to be up later than me, I tend toward being a night person to start with and then I've got this unfair 3 hour advantage. Though I'm probably going to go to bed in a few minutes.

Wow that's an impressive percentage change, from N/0 to N/1. I think that might even be an infinate improvement.

Though I bet that there are actually a few queer women floating around. Once I was at a poly event and met at guy who used to be a minister in the same wacky fundamentalist church that I grew up in--and now he's a bi poly pagan.
