Western Massachusetts Feminine Lesbians [MA/w] New
Description: "This group is for lesbians tired of a so called 'community' that only values the bar scene, women who look more like men than women, s/m idiocy, and personal ad places that just want your money. This group is for everyday feminine lesbians out there who would like to form substantive friendships. This is not a Femme group either -- no lipstick lesbians looking for their butches, PLEASE! By 'feminine,' i just mean women who still look like a woman, even when they change their own motor oil! I don't want to offend anyone -- I just want to be clear about the group as a place for lesbians not fitting any stereotypes (self- or societally imposed).The group is based in western Massachusetts, but anyone is welcome from the area...."
