Why Lesbianism is Like Assembling Ikea Furniture

I have been doing some thinking and would like to present the following analogy for perusal:

I really like Ikea furniture. I even have some in my home. I know that there are some people who like to assemble Ikea furniture, and while I know that I am physically capable of doing so myself, when faced with an array of nuts and bolts and planks of wood it all just seems like too much effort.

If I could draw pictures in the comments, this would be a pen-and-ink image of me raising a champagne glass in appreciation of your succinct metaphor.

Alas, I cannot draw pictures in the comments. Oh, well.

Thanks, I'll take that as a good excuse to go and pour myself a glass of champagne anyway

I like that you've managed to have "lesbianism" in the title, and "nuts" in the body of this blog, and you've tied them together nicely as well. Nice work sista.

Thanks!

I excel at assembling Ikea furniture, although mostly this is a private ritual.

Yeah, and gayness is what happens when the two parts of an Ikea bought piece of furniture clearly don't go together, but you leave them there anyway because it's close enough.

I'm allowed to say that, btw.

Chris, don't forget that I have seen some (if not all) of your Ikea handiwork. I feel really close to you now in a way that is maybe not all that appropriate...

Jacob, are you sure? That sounds more like the definition of a dysfunctional relationship (of any persuasion) to me...
