Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

An amazing show for teens that covers just about everything a teen of these days goes through...questioning your sexuality, drugs, high school and much more. It's about a family named the Carlins that move from a little town of Ohio to sunny and quick moving LA.

Spencer Carlin meets a girl named Ashley Davies that causes her to question if she truly likes men. She begins to fall for her and ends up going on a rollar coaster of emotions that brings out her mother's dark side.

Ashely Davies is a lesbian who has been through Hell and back, but when she meets the new girl, Spencer, she begins to fall in love.

Glenn Carlin used to be the star basketball player back in Ohio, but in LA his abilities are put to the test when he faces King High's Aiden Dennison.

Clay Carlin is the family's adopted black son and when he moves to LA he begins to realize the complications of living with an all-white family. He meets a girl Chelsea and gets her pregnant.

Paula Carlin is their mother. After moving to LA, she begins to regret it. Her daughter is hanging out with a lesbian more than she is at home, her son Glenn struggles with basketball, a broken knee and drugs, her black son Clay gets into trouble with his new friends, and everything falls apart.

Arthur Carlin is their father. During Spencer's fight with her mother about her being gay continues, he is there for Spencer the entire way. He finds out that one of the reasons they moved was because his wife's old flame moved to LA.

A tv show on the n, where one of the characters thinks shes gay, but that doesnt really matter cuz i dont think anyone really even pays attention to her. Her brother, Glen thinks he is so amazingly cool just because he's dating a cheerleading Slut, Madison, who totally sucks. Her other brother is a nerd who is just trying to get through high school. Ashley is so mysterious: "In high school, it's all about being somebody." Hmm...
Aiden is so damn messed up...I think he should just be out of the show...maybe like somehow die of a strange disease and get off the show! That's South of Nowhere.
Glen: Gay. That's what the word is.

Hey have you seen the show south of nowhere
yeah that show totally kicks ass...if only aiden and madison weren't on it...ew
