Drew:

I was conversing with dad of all of the men and women—

Bringing dads into this room!

I am aware — about becoming happy. And my dad was like, “Oh, really, do you really believe it’s because here is the very first union that you’ve gotten into as your self?


Christina:

To start with, father, that’s thus nice!

I’m sure! Really nice dad remark.

Stop, king!

And that I was actually like — very amusing so that you could phone dad king.


Theme track performs


Drew:

Hi, I’m Drew!


Christina:

And I’m Christina! And this is a podcast that we forgot the intro to currently.


Drew:

That’s okay! It’s been a bit.


Christina:

Woohoo, it offers.


Drew:

This might be

Hold off, So Is This a night out together?


Christina:

Yes, that podcast.


Drew:

We’ll do your component. Thank you for visiting

Wait, So Is This a romantic date?

An Autostraddle podcast everything about intercourse and dating as queer people who have queer people, hopefully. Exactly how, exactly how are we undertaking?


Christina:

No, In my opinion you’re smashing it. I believe what is truly interesting about this occurrence is it is our mailbag episode where we are going to end up being getting questions away from you, our audience. A bunch of you submitted sound memos and e-mails, so we possess material and the concerns and hopefully the responses, but like, I, I’m not going to state something also crazy. I really don’t want to get also outlandish, you are aware?


Drew:

Yeah. We are questioning together with you. Should we — I mean, this probably isn’t individuals first event, but in instance people skipped you, you know, launching ourselves, maybe that’s a person’s favorite part of the podcast. Thus I believe we should present ourselves.


Christina:

Yeah, definitely.


Drew:

Okay, cool. I’ll go 1st. I am Drew Gregory. I’m an author and a filmmaker and a queer person. I nonetheless determine as a lesbian, but i have been making use of that phrase much less, and is perhaps something that I’m able to unpack on another event. I however have always been a lesbian, but I also am similar, how much does that even indicate? You know? I am not sure. Brands tend to be amusing, but I’m fairly positive that I’m a writer. I am quite certain that I am a filmmaker. Uh, what about you?


Christina:

Yeah. Uh, I am Christina Tucker, a writer at Autostraddle in addition. I am additionally a queer person. I started in fact using “queer” more whenever I initially was released and from now on i take advantage of lesbian perhaps similarly. I’m really, I just style of use whatever term seems right, taken from my personal mouth area during the time. And that I never think about any of it far more than that. But that is a journey we are all on, honestly.


Drew:

We support that. I actually do believe that sums upwards just who we have been, that i am similar, “i’ll have to revisit this as time goes on.” And you’re love, “I just kind of do what I feel plus don’t need certainly to consider more info on it.”


Christina:

We very actually choose the term that works best for the little bit, so…


Drew:

Well, yeah. So as you said, it is our very own mailbag event. Should we just go into the first — oh, I additionally wish state before we begin that in the event that you sent us a concern therefore we do not get to it, it might be because there were specific things which were like, oh, i wish to unpack this on another full event, maybe with a special visitor who would be much more, you understand, possibly a lot more skilled to respond to it. So we actually value the questions—


Christina:

All of you delivered most concerns, that has been cool, but we would not need time for you will every single one of those.


Drew:

Yeah. However they happened to be all browse.


Christina:

In addition to some of you merely sent united states comments without concerns.


Drew:

And, you realize, frequently with — when this was actually a Q&A before or after a motion picture, it’d resemble, you should not compliment the person. There is a complete market right here, however for this, the actual only real audience had been Christina and that I and Lauren. And thus frankly, comments, fantastic. Thank-you a whole lot. Actually, excellent.


Christina:

Exciting to get, genuinely certainly my main meals groups.


Drew:

So yeah, why don’t we focus on the first concern. When you look at the sound memo, the person claims they are semi-closeted, therefore we’re gonna omit names just to end up being safe right here. And let us tune in to this concern.


Anonymous Asker:

So this is from somebody who has no knowledge about online dating at all, generally because I’m semi-closeted and residing call at the typically traditional boonies. Once I graduate high school, I’m leaving this one thus I have a taste of independence. And that I’m recognizing that i’ll be entering the queer matchmaking realm. This is certainly a rather simple query, but exactly how would I ask a female out the very first time without slipping into a complete on panic and anxiety attack? As you are able to tell, I’m very bad at talking-to people.


Drew:

This can be an age old, age-old question. Really.


Christina:

It’s. I in all honesty believe that it is why we have a podcast.


Drew:

Yeah. After all, I feel like we type of recognize where i’ll choose this, that’s like, it’s about acknowledging the fact no body’s effective in this? After all, maybe people ultimately get effective in it since you exercise sufficient therefore kind of squander the — what’s it — the visibility therapy or whatever — but like, its among those circumstances where you simply do it plus it gets easier. And really, even before we came out — I mean, to clear up, I happened to be inquiring girls out before I arrived considering the total getting a trans person thing. As soon as i do believe regarding the beginning of while I kept my bad small town and moved off to university and was initially actually inquiring people out, i truly took a very direct method and really had been like, “Hello, would you like to embark on a romantic date?” And I believe over time, I relocated away from that a bit. But we really however, I nevertheless think sometimes it’s fantastic just to be drive and ask someone away, and also you have a clear solution. What i’m saying is, you could also do the thing the place you simply start obscure and ask someone to spend time and you simply, you are aware, play a,

Hold off, Is This a night out together

video game for some time.


Christina:

Correct. Fingertips entered, i really hope that information comes across. In addition think in a scenario, like for me, when I began internet dating, when I was actually queer relationship, I happened to be away from school, solution of my personal hometown, but I happened to be undertaking lots of matchmaking via apps hence really does reduce the awkwardness because it’s like, everybody knows that which we’re right here for. And while I think you will find certainly disadvantages to any matchmaking app, like most things in life, i really do genuinely believe that style of eliminating that shield of love, oh no, just how shameful is this probably going to be? Like, can it be probably going to be like, no, it is, that is what this is when it comes down to program in which you came to. After which whenever you, whenever you make the hangout ask, it can necessarily know it really is a night out together because that’s the reason we’re all here. Vibing.


Drew:

Which is a great point.


Christina:

I mean, I do keep in mind that its — like this sense of want, “Oh no, this really is will be therefore embarrassing because I’m thus uncomfortable.” But frankly the occasions i’ve believed very embarrassing, honestly, most people are like, that was pleasant. Thus don’t believe about your awkwardness just in similar, this is uncomfortable and everyone hates me personally. People could be like, that is shameful, but it is method of sexy. And I perform would you like to continue a romantic date to you. A couple of things is generally true. I do believe that’s gorgeous.


Drew:

Very true. Yeah. Yeah. I believe we now have this concept that if you ask some one down, you need to be like significant leading electricity Shane-style, and it’s really like, no, you’ll be able to ask some body out as an awkward individual, and that is a different sort of model of hot, but it is nonetheless, it’s still one of the brand names.


Christina:

There are many labels of hot.


Drew:

Yeah.


Christina:

Wow. Which Is truly stunning.


Drew:

Great. Really, let us move on to the next concern definitely from Claire from Australia.


Claire:

Hey, I adored hearing all of you from here in Queensland, Australia, together with a question each of you really. Christina, what exactly is this non-transferable lip lining that you wear on an initial day, and where may I purchase it? And Drew, your own website is a bit harder. How will you understand when to tune in to the difficult feelings that can come up during a non-monogamous circumstance and when to be hired through all of them?


Christina:

Wow. Everyone loves that I get a lip and you also have difficult emotions. I do believe which is a really beautiful. I shall go initial and provide you with sometime to consider the difficult thoughts. So there’s several versions of a non-transferable lip. Whenever I was in my young people back in the existing mid-aughts, when everyone was simply addicted to putting on a matte lipstick, used to do a lot of, like, Stila mattes are very non-transferable. But here’s the one thing I’m getting older. My epidermis is getting drier. I can’t be putting on a matte lip such as that rather than having a dried aside lip suger moment. Now we have now relocated into a stain, that will be actually chef’s hug. Cause it may get a tiny bit necessity, but no-one truly sees, however look wonderful. Currently a huge enthusiast of Clinique. Their black colored honey is a great one because Knicks lippie powder puff, many tones, fades beautifully. A great lip spot. Go forth making on your dates with great lips. That is all i would like for all really. Now, Drew, speak with me about hard feelings.


Drew:

Tricky feelings in non-monogamous relationships. Wow. Yeah. Thus a fun thing that took place when you look at the hiatus that we’ve had yet is You will find a girlfriend now.


Christina:

She actually is amazing!


Drew:

Yeah. I’m really, really pleased. I am just, I feel like each and every day type of mastering brand new definitions of what interactions and love and gender can be, as well as have perhaps not already been that much of a romantic since I have was at highschool plus it was all theoretical. So, I’m very happy, want to share that. Im like, ok. And what takes place if you are, you are aware, in a relationship you worry about versus, you understand, simply having hookups and fillings and things, is you are also checking much more with your own personal limits and your lover’s limits in terms of what you discuss. And appearance, all of this might be stuff that i did not share. And that I merely moved inside concern and ended up being vague, but this can be my version of getting available when you’re want, detailing like specific main reasons why i would be vague about podcast moving forward, because i actually do believe actually it is necessary within parasocial interactions we’ve with others who compose or those that have podcasts that like, I’m not sure, to share these items, to talk about like how I determine my personal boundaries, particularly as someone who writes and talks about gender extremely graphically. Anyways, so all of that as a preamble for this concern—


Christina:

Context is actually king. That is what we are always stating.


Drew:

That will be to say that like, after all, in a way, like i am, I’m during my very first commitment, like as someone who’s available about being non-monogamous and navigating that and et cetera. And I also believe merely talking usually, like every union is actually a unique discussion. And with the people that are because relationship, everyone gives goals and gives things that are just like beliefs in to the connection, but also, tends to make compromises and has now talks and — or does not, immediately after which that is your form of that. Correct? I really believe its sort of an annoying solution, however it is sort of want, you need to both consult with yourself and talk with your lover or associates, and decide sort of, you know, something essential for you, you realize, if you are a person who’s monogamous while begin internet dating somebody who’s non-monogamous, usually something you will get used to? Are there any specific factors which make you comfy? Would it be convenient for your family as soon as your lover hooks up with somebody which you all learn and it’s really relaxed and it’s whatever, or do you really, is it much more comfortable whether they have some other connections, however they’re not surrounding you anyway? Or like all these — there’s so many approaches to have non-monogamous connections. And I also do not know if you are asking this from the perspective of someone that is really cost-free in non-monogamy and is also probably online dating a person that is not, or the other way around. But In my opinion that’s frequently a — i will not also say a conflict, it’s just an integral part of getting non-monogamous, i believe, is most people have various relationships to non-monogamy.


Christina:

Yeah.


Drew:

For me personally, i really could date a person who had several partners. But usually with non-monogamy, my personal ideal will be to big date someone in which i am their own lover, and then we are not monogamous. Basically happened to be up to now some one, that isn’t current situation that I’m in, where I was internet dating someone who wished to have numerous lovers, i’d need to be like, okay, what exactly are my thoughts about this person? What are my personal emotions exactly how this individual communicates? Do In my opinion that that will be something that my work for me personally? And figure that away. And you’ll find union characteristics i possibly could be in in which i am on a single end and where i am on the other side conclusion. And I also genuinely believe that just goes to show that like, it is simply in regards to choosing if person you are matchmaking — one, should your feelings on their behalf tend to be sufficiently strong enough that it’s beneficial, and if you are compatible adequate in your needs that it could operate, because often you really like some body in addition they like you, or perhaps you love some one and they really like you, and it only does not work properly down using what both of you wish from a relationship. And that is unfortunate, however it is also exactly the case. So if or not working through tough feelings is definitely going to be situation by case. And that I genuinely believe that it’s also really influenced by interaction types, since if you have good communication using person or people you are internet dating, you are able to sort out significantly more than any time you battle to talk. So those are typical my rambling applying for grants this thing that i believe about much.


Christina:

I would like listeners to find out that for this reason I have six-minute voice memos from Drew. Though in equity, this lady has maybe not sent me personally a six-minute vocals memo in a very long-time.


Drew:

This has been quite a long time.


Christina:

But that’s the electricity. And I perform feel just like i recently spoke one into existence. I cannot wait for the then couple of days.


Drew:

You think it’s because I’m in a relationship?


Christina:

I understand that it’s.


Drew:

I am feeling vulnerable about this now. Yeah. Now I am like, was we a terrible friend since i am in a relationship?


Christina:

I think it really is okay and delightful and great and great. And I also’m not exactly clamoring to get even more six-minute voice memos.


Drew:

I’m going to deliver a six-minute voice memo about my union. Would that end up being fun? Would that end up being a great thing for you yourself to have?


Christina:

What i’m saying is, yes, naturally it might. You’re my good friend.


Drew:

Thank you so much. Okay. Moving forward.


Christina:

Moving forward.


Drew:

Why don’t we see. This voice memo is from Julia.


Julia:

Hey Received. Hey Christina. Here’s my question for y’all. If you may have any imaginary queer fictional character from the pod, that would it is and what online dating topic could you discuss? Many thanks for having these Qs! Bye!


Christina:

This will be these a fun question.


Drew:

This might be an excellent concern. My — genuinely, rather than getting extremely Autostraddle about it, but my personal instinct reaction was like, I would like an extra season which a sit down with every main fictional character of

The L Keyword.

And merely to-be similar, “what exactly is wrong along with you?”


Drew:

Yeah. Okay. And so I’ve already been producing a concerted energy in my mind and my personal writing, to talk about

The L Keyword

much less, because I’m like, there is such other stuff available to choose from and like, it really is fun that people have this common vocabulary, {but also|but additionally|
