Important Hipster Article of the Week / Blog of the Week: "Boobs-Only Lesbians"

Each week the boys scour the New York Times Book Review in search of pompous fiction they can pretend to read in order to impress intellectual women (current favorites: Tom McCarthy's C and, of course, Adam Levin's The Instructions). During this week's search we came across an important piece called "The Hipster in the Mirror" by Mark Greif.

Grief feels that the "couch-surfing, old-clothes wearing hipsters...seem the most authentic but are actually the most socially precarious": "They are the bartenders and boutique clerks who wait on their well-to-do peers and tourists. Only on the basis of their cool clothes can they be 'superior': hipster knowledge compensates for economic immobility."

Richard: "Well, of course 'hipster knowledge compensates for economic immobility.' Chip and I have Ph.D's in the humanities and still can't get jobs. Why do you think we find the 'sparklemitten' and 'cow cloud' fantasies of the Transmittens so appealing?"


During today's perusal of Vice magazine, the following sentence immediately caught our eye: "Boobs-only Lesbians is an important blog about tits written by two partially gay girls." (their blog title refers to "women who appreciate the company of women, the beauty of women, but with an aversion to the vag.”).

Vice offers a stimulating interview with the blog's authors in which they provide such insights as "Tits are great and should be enjoyed."

Chip: "I've been saying that for years, and I'm not even a boobs-only lesbian."

The Vice piece also offers an important poll, complete with pictures: "What kind of knockers make you want to be a boobs-only lesbian?"

We voted for "deliciously suckable." (Chip: "Actually, I voted for "Big, with nipples like sun-dried tomatoes.").
Go here to take the poll yourself:

Chip: "It may be a blog for lesbians, but I'm finding A LOT of things there that I can also enjoy.


Chip is right on the nipple said...

There is a lot on this site to get a straight man going. And it makes me think that boobs-only lesbians might be even more in need than anyone of a little assistance, someone who has no aversion whatsoever to the vag.

If you need me, leave a message at my blog . . .

And like the majority, I voted for gigantic, round, symmetrical, pert!

Hmmm, thinking back, I think I was a boobs-only lesbian for the first 20 years of my life.
....Then I experienced unprotected coitus for the first time and shit was over.
