Status of the Lesbians

Yesterday two of my friends posted Facebook status updates that reflected how times have changed for us lesbians.  Even better, they made me laugh.

Bernie in New York reported that it was "date night with Cindy after filing married joint return.  She's the 'taxpayer' and I'm the 'spouse'!  Guess who's buying dinner?"

And Kate in Michigan wrote of an experience somewhat less likely to happen now. Years ago she was sitting in a church when the preacher sermonized, "God tells us to love everyone, including prostitutes, money lenders and homosexuals."  Kate's partner whispered, "Can you feel the love?"

"On the way home," Kate added, "I asked her if she'd like a loan."
