I am a lesbian going into Mechanical Engineering. This blog is meant to do two things: a.) relieve the stress on myself from being closeted, and b.) to let people know that there are members of the LGBT community in engineering fields.

Online Dating

       I've been considering an online dating website for sometime now (i.e. gaydar girls.com).  Yet I never have set one up, I start to fill out the profile, but I never complete it.  I guess some part of me still dreams of the romantic comedy meeting.  Although lesbian romantic comedies usually have the same theme.  That is gay girl meets straight girl who is happily in a relationship with a guy (sometimes in the verge of getting married or already married).  The straight girl has never really had a same sex attraction before and then before you know it she's left her male lover and everyone's ends up happy.  I prefer the "Lip Service" TV show option of meeting a significant other of "sure, every other woman I meet is a lesbian".  I am ignoring the fact that some of the characters have used internet dating sites and have shown the two extremes of meeting the dream girl and the complete disaster date.
       Maybe I should set an online dating profile one of these days, it's not like I know of many gay women in the sciences besides those that read my blog.  Thanks to those who do!

Views on TV Shows

       Tonight my roommates came up with the topic of how a lot of main stream TV shows have been incorporating an LGBT couple into minor plot lines.  These shows can include "How I met your Mother" and  I guess the Disney show "Good Luck Charlie" is having a lesbian couple in a side story.  Now my roommates, who are all straight, said that they are sick of this, but I guess they don't really understand.  TV needs to become more diversified, that way people will get used to the idea that everyone should be equal.
