Role Models: Dykes to look up to (and Oprah).

It’s a growing list.

Margaret Cho

Ellen Degeneres

Frida Kahlo

Audre Lorde

Rachel Maddow

Wanda Sykes

Oprah Winfrey

I think that Oprah has been on just about every list that I’ve made since the second grade.

Suze Orman?
Sia — though not sure if she counts as “power”

Baby Power Dyke

I cannot add Suze Orman based upon her smugness, terrible frosting and the stupid spelling of her name.

Though Sia is definitely on the list to consider.
So is Wanda Sykes. I love that Wanda Sykes.

What about ambiguous dykes? You know, the ones who are suspiciously vague about such matters, but with a combination of wishful thinking and tenuous “evidence” of dykey tendencies we can claim them as our own?

…cause if you’re considering those, I have to nominate Noah Sow. She’s German, but don’t let the language barrier discourage you. In fact, I started learning German because of her.

Ambiguous Dykes have a special place in my heart. The Debra Wilson place. Though Girlfriend told me that she thinks that Debra isn’t all that ambiguous. I say to her, “What.ever. Until Debra Wilson comes knocking on our door with a Babeland bag and ginger ale, I’m going to keep her in the ambiguous pool.”

-Course, if anyone out there knows something that I don’t, let me know.

Anyhoods, I would totally love to reap what Noah has to Sow. :O)
Thanks for putting her on my radar.
