A Dyke Looks in the Mirror

When a dyke looks in the mirror:

Age 3: Looks at herself and sees a Prince!

Age 8: Looks at herself and thinks she could awaken Cinderella/Sleeping beauty with a kiss.

Age 15: Looks at herself and sees herself as a valiant/ peaceful/virile/athelete/prince or if she is PMS’ing sees herself as weird/out-of-place/different than other “girls.” (thinks “Mom, I can’t go to school being like this!”)

Age 20: Looks at herself and sees "too manly/too conventional, too obvious/too different She’s got to go out sometime so might as well start now.

Age 30: Looks at herself and sees “too fat/too thin, too caught up in women/ too caught up in pleasing society & the church” but decided she doesn’t have time to fix it so she’s going anyway.

Age 40: Looks at herself and says "too fat/too thin, too butch/ too much of a psychophant but says, “At least I’m clean and don’t do drugs.” And goes anyway.

Age 50: Looks at herself and sees “I AM” and goes wherever she wants on her Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Age 60: Looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can’t even see themselves in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquers the world.

Age 70: Looks at herself and sees wisdom, laughter and ability and goes out and enjoys life.

Age 80: Doesn’t even bother to look. She knows she’s handsome and wonderful. She puts on her ballcap and goes out to have fun with the world!
