Latina Magazine blogger Sarita published a post today with a great tip on how to mix up your summer after a drab season of winter hibernation.

‘The other night my girl Angie and I were hanging out and talking about how excited we are about the summer! Summer in the city is always an adventure—New Yorkers come out of hibernation and there’s always tons of street fairs and free concerts. People go out more, date more and by the end of summer you inevitably are left with some hysterical and unforgettable stories.

While candidly reminiscing about the our crazy boy stories from last summer, we realized that we’re once again heading into the season as single women. That’s when Angie turned to me and said something I wasn’t expecting to hear:

“I think I’m going to be a lesbian this summer.”

“What are you talking about?!” I laughed incredulously.

“Well, I’m sick of guys.,” she explained, “It’s always the same old story, and I seriously feel like forgetting about them for a bit and trying something new,” she said matter-of-factly.

Now, deep down, Angie doesn’t really want to become a lesbian, but she did mention that visiting some of the city’s lesbian clubs and dancing with cute girls is always a blast. Hmm, after I thought about it for a second I realized a change of scenery may not be a bad idea at all.

We decided right then and there that we’ll soon make plans to go dancing—with the ladies.

Do you plan to do something different this summer? Perhaps, change up the scenery a bit?’

There’s nothing wrong with her plan.   If she and her friend want to hang out/hook up with girls for a change of scenery that’s all fine and good and I’m sure a lot of fun but what a grave misuse of the word lesbian.  One does not become a lesbian. What’s more disturbing is that her  dis-organized writing in the public sphere perpetuates the fight for validation and right to be taken seriously for the queer community.  When she goes home she still has more rights than any of these women she plans to “party” with.

You want to change your scenery? Go on a road trip…preferably off a cliff.
