While I can’t quite do the graphic design work that went into Gay Times‘ man-pussy ad or its “women are all stupid, frightening bitches” ad or even any of its three “get laid more” ads, I can push out a list of talking points like a mofo. So, following are the talking points lesbians really need to start using to recruit more women to the Sapphic Lifestyle.
- Breasts are fun. They just are.
- You know how you used to fish for compliments about your shoes from your boyfriend? Yeah, don’t worry about it.
- You’ll never have to smell schweaty balls again.
- You know you always kiss a guy after he goes down on you, so you can’t claim squeamishness.
- When you cry, your girlfriend won’t try to fix the problem, she’ll just let you have your feelings.
- Double your wardrobe, double your fun.
- Body hair maintenance really is optional.
- Rachel Maddow. You know you want her.
- No woman will ever try to use her teeth on you during oral.
- And, if you’re really one of those girly-girls who is super into the Dream Princess Wedding, there’s only one thing to say: two wedding dresses.
