A Short Lesbian Relationship Survey

I am doing a little research and I am hoping that you all can give me a little bit of help. Below are 10 questions about lesbian life that I would love for you to answer. They aren't in any special order and you don't need to answer them all. Just leave your answers as comments at the end of this post or email them to me at Don't worry, I am not going to publish your names on the blog, I am more interested in the different answers I will receive.

  1. What do you think are the biggest health issues facing lesbian women today?

  2. Do you think that the lesbian community as a whole is more or less health conscious?

  3. Do you think lesbians are more accepting of women who are overweight?

  4. Do you think lesbians have more or less stress in their lives then our straight counterparts? And if so, why?

  5. How long do you think the average lesbian relationship lasts?

  6. What do you think are some of the most common problems lesbians face in long-term relationships?

  7. Do you think lesbians tend to get into more "unhealthy" relationships than straight women?

  8. Have you ever had a commitment ceremony, marriage or otherwise (this does include Domestic Partners), in any of your relationships? And if you have, how many times total?

  9. At what age did you start dating women?

  10. At what age did you tell your family that you're a lesbian?

That is all for today. Thank you in advance for helping me with this survey.

Equality California Prop 8 Update

In a recent email from Equality California it was announced that U.S. District Court Judge James Ware ruled that former U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker did not have to recuse himself from the federal case against Proposition 8 just because he is gay.

If Judge Ware had decided that Judge Walker should have removed himself from hearing the case because of his sexual orientation, Judge Walker’s ruling in 2010 that Prop. 8 is unconstitutional could have been overturned. It also would have set a dangerous precedent for many judges in the US. Female judges could have been barred from hearing cases that affect women. African American, Latino and Asian American judges could have been barred from hearing cases that affect their own ethnicity and so on. This ruling reaches beyond the LGBT community and is a cause for celebration for all Americans who believe in equality.

So now it is up to the California Supreme Court, which will hear arguments in the case against Prop. 8 in September of this year. Then the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will consider the findings of the California Supreme Court and make its own ruling on Prop. 8, probably in the beginning of 2012.

As more information and details become available, I will be sure to post more updates. You can also stay caught up on prop 8 by following Equality California on Facebook and Twitter.
