Effing Dykes

Effing DykesWelcome to the L-Stop’s Effing Dykes section!

Winner of the 2011 Bloggie Awards for Best LGBT Blog, Effing Dykes is a humor blog about harnessing your lesbian gaydar – helping you spot the ladies faster, so we can all get laid.

Here you can find completely stereotypical gaydar tip-offs, musings on the inner workings of dyke life, great pictures, accounts of slutty goodtimes, and some seriously filthy fucking language.
Effing Dykes is based in Chicago, so we’ll definitely see you gayelles around!

    • Heart of Glass
      Tweet Tweet Hi oyster shuckers! What’s happening? Over here in Chicago, it’s been weird-weathering for weeks.   Nothing like what you faggettes have on the East Coast, but seriously. In January, we had a 24-hour period in which it was almost 70 degrees one day and raining [...]

      Tweet TweetHi there, vagina-diners! Greetings from the black hole of time. Jeez. In the two months since we’ve talked, we’ve had Mitt Romney vanish like a bad dream and we’ve survived an almost-apocalypse.

      Tweet TweetHow’s it hanging, love-tunnelers? Well. It’s been touch-and-go for years, but it’s official: I finally love Chicago. I really, really do. When I first moved here, I hated it. The cool green streets of Minneapolis were fresh in my mind, and all my friends were there [...]

    • Come Together
      Tweet Tweet Ciao, dew-lappers!! Hmph. Just look at you. Sitting there, snug in your chair, one hand on a delicious beverage and the other scrolling down this mess.   A minute ago, you gleefully clicked through your facebook and email and animalstalkinginallcaps and checked Rick Santorum’s highly [...]

    • Shake That
      Tweet TweetHola, velvet tunnelers! If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?   I know, I know. Questions like that are a cheap way of getting to know someone. Questions like that come printed in brochures called “Connecting With Your Teen.” But seriously. Assuming [...]

    • Are you gonna eat that?
      Tweet Tweet  Hiya fish-mongers! How was your Pride? Mine was, um, epic. Live/drunk blogging was ridiculous. Nothing happened with God-Des, obvs. The girls I was driving with found her wandering the streets of downtown at 2:30 in the morning, looking for her hotel. We hollered at God-des, stuffed her [...]

  1. So-I’m in a long distance relationship with a wonderful lady. BUUUT, I also need to get out of this house and have some fun. I’m kind of over the whole going to a bar and dancing until 3am thing…any suggestions as far as fun queer activities in Chicago?

  2. Hi Rickikat,
    We have the L Stop events page where we do our best to feature all kinds of queer friendly events. Events can vary from bar nights to volunteer work to open forums. It just depends who’s doing what. For example, this Saturday there’s a Hollywood Beach Meetup thrown by the good people of GenderQueer from Noon – 3PM. Check it out, I’m sure you’ll find something cool.
