I Kissed a Girl & I Liked It

Sometimes I have crushes on women.

I am in a happy, loving relationship with a wonderful, handsome man, & for all intents & purposes, I identify as a straight woman - but I'd be lying if I told you I didn't have a soft spot for "masculine" lesbians who don't conform to gender stereotypes. Incidentally, these women are typically reality TV stars.

You're thinking Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber right about now, amirite? Sorrrrrt of, but not quite. Let me give you the top three examples.

Ashley Merriman, my original (& biggest) reality TV crush, was a "cheftestant" (that faux word makes me want to punch a puppy) on Season 6 of Top Chef. This New Hampshire native (woop woop!) looks exactly like a hipster boy, down to the mini-mullet & the plastic tortoiseshell specs, & I'm apparently not the only straight lady who found herself swooning over the culinary cutie. The former emo kid in me still wants a boyfriend just like her! I mean... wait, that doesn't even make sense. Except it does.
 
 
Sarah Golden
was (spoiler alert!) recently booted from The Voice, a decision that did not sit well with me because I loved her a lot. She has a powerful folksy voice, & her acoustic rendition of Lady Gaga's "You & I" solidified her spot on this list. Sarah told NBC she'd had the opportunity to sign with record labels in the past, but both wanted her to change her look to long hair & dresses. I, for one, think Sarah is beautiful as she is - & her look doesn't have a damn thing to do with her sound.
  
Azmarie Livingston is a current contestant on this season's America's Next Top Model, and yesIstillwatchitshutup. Androgyny is her "thing," & she does it damn well; she's been ranked number one in the last two weeks of the competition. I don't know what else to say about her, so I'm gonna move right along to the photo & let you crush for yourself.
 

I know straight dudes are a fan of saying "No homo!" before admitting to their dude crushes, but forget that. Nothing wrong with identifying as a solid 2 on the Kinsey Scale.

How about you? Reality TV crushes? Crushes whose gender falls outside your typical interest? Love for these ladies? Think I'm nuts? I'd love to hear it all.
