Has anyone ever heard of the term "girlfag"?
There's a Wikipedia article about it, so I guess it's a sort of established thing:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girlfag_and_guydyke


I found it a few days ago while surfing the Internet, and honestly, I think it applies to me quite well. But there isn't much out there about other girlfags, and I searched this forum and didn't find anything either. Does anyone else feel the same way?

Thanks.

Hmm, that's pretty interesting :] For the most part, I don't feel the need to label myself as anything specific, but I know a lot of people find comfort in having a single, definitive term in which they are able to say, 'Well, hey, yea - that's it, that's me in a nutshell.' I think it's interesting how we, as a culture, come up with so many terms, also.

Usually, when defining myself orientation-wise, I choose the term pansexual, because it's what fits the closest. I do remember a time early on, when I was maybe 13 or so, when I went through a period of time where I felt very much like this article describes, especially the line that states, "A girlfag might partly or wholly feel 'like a gay man trapped in a woman's body'."
