Nation’s Lesbians Invite You To Their Veiled Room

Jan 11, 2019

The nation’s lesbians invite you to their veiled room.

Come inside, she said.  I set down my book and glanced over to find her parting the curtain.  Well, why not?

It’s a magical place.  You can stay inside.  Or you can leave.  Or you can come and go as you please.  There’s no one way to be with this room.  You are not the room you live in.

According to the latest National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles, the number of women reporting same-sex partners has increased from 1.8% to 7.9% over the past 20 years.  As a result, there are more lesbians available to invite you to their Veiled Room.  It is said that the Veiled Room is more open than it ever has been in history.

It can be scary to some: “If I go in, will I be the same?”  Some men and non-lesbians feel excluded: “Am I allowed in the Veiled Room?”  Some people have no interest: “I’m happy with the room I got, thank you.”

Yet there it is, always there, never leaving.  The veil parts open like a decalcified pineal gland, like a trigger releasing the bull into the button shop, like a calm movement, an understanding that gets more mysterious as the curtain expands.  What is this Veiled Room all about?

Yet, all the same, the invitation awaits.
