Silver and Gold

Poodle: A very feminine lesbian quite similar to a lipstick lesbian, but in the early stages of her lesbian career. Poodles are typically high maintenance, self indulgent and expensive to entertain and maintain - and will likely tell you they're worth every pretty penny.

Poodles are the younger, more modern, and often times urban version of the lipstick lesbian.  Ms. Poodle is most likely in the early stages of her lesbianism and well on her way to embracing the lipstick term later in life.  Meaning she is already bossing people, working others, and manipulating the few she needs to get to the top of her career.

She doesn’t leave the house without looking like the bombshell she knows she is. She even arrives at the gym in full make-up and hair, only to take it off with make-up remover before taking a swim.  If she's there for aerobics class in one of those rooms with mirrors, the make up stays on and she works out dabbing her face with a towel in between high and low steps. A little diva-ish? You betcha, but boy is she a beautiful glistening sight. (Yes, glistening, because poodles never sweat.)    

She only mates with the subset, Packer, who must cater to all of her requests including, but not limited to, household chores,  car maintenance, lawn care, morning coffee and even grocery shopping. Not that she isn’t capable of doing these things for herself, she just doesn’t want to be bothered. Because of this characteristic, she chooses her packer carefully.

It's hard to shop for the girl who has everything and must have it her way, so you might want to get her a gift that she can keep on the shelf until she's good and ready to use it. We suggest buying her a certificate for limousine services from About Town Limo so that she can organize, plan and coordinate a night out on the town with her friends. Call Jeff at 615.330.6885 for prices.

For the rest of her wish list, get whatever she says, everything she says and then add jewelry. But nothing you've seen advertised on T.V. It just won’t do for her to have the same piece of jewelry that every Southern Baptist minister's wife will be receiving for Christmas.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
