Slice of cake?
Ladies, ladies, ladies today marks a momentous occasion; the fourth anniversary of the first ever Gaelick post. I know! How did you ever survive in a pre-Gaelick world? How did you know what was Alainn or Appalling? How could you have an indepth conversation in the pub about how lesbians can enjoy sex with men? Where oh where did you get your political and current affairs? Yes, it was a grey, barren land.
Then, one day in a tavern in Dublin a group of ladies got together with an idea. “Where are all the women at?” was the cry. And lo Gaelick was born. “Come aboard!” we shouted to all. And so our journey on the internet cast off with a crew of misfits and miscreants intent on riding the waves of life together. (FYI – I may have had too much rum last night).
It’s rather boring to admit, but our first post (by yours truly) was a restaurant review. Look, it takes a while to get these things going ok? From the off, it was clear that AorA was the most popular section; even though most people (ahem clickhere) give out about it being demeaning to woman. We have a rule though; AorA is a celebration of women, not a pervefest. Honest.
One of the oddest things ever to happen Gaelick was when we went viral with the simplest of polls; who is your favourite lesbian couple on television? My lord did the Tibette (Tina & Bette from The L Word) come out in their droves. Thousands of them.
This was the first lesson of what is now known as The Third Rule of Gaelick: You shall never know what gets people engaged, no matter how hard you try. Rules One and Two?
The First Rule of Gaelick – women in all of their forms rock
The Second Rule of Gaelick – ok, maybe not Breda O’Brien
So here we are, with a crew of eight hardy wenches putting their backs into rowing our course. We also have a few wonderful contributors who take the helm when they feel the need. But without you we’re just a bunch of eejits wasting time on the internet. So thanks for reading, you wonderful people.
