Just when you think you're starting to understand....
Sigh, back to the beginning.
You're speaking in riddles.
Kate Mulgrew has a very devoted fanbase full of all kinds of mostly women. Straight, gay, bi and trans. I don't think we can pin down why she attracts such a following because we'll have different reasons, but she does have a definite charisma that is there from seeing her as a young girl on a soap to her late 50's on a stage at a con.
I had an immediate crush on her when I saw her on Cheers.
I had an immediate crush on her when I started looking up Youtube videos of Captain Janeway, before I had watched a single episode of Voyager I haven't been this "crushed" since I discovered Xena a few years ago!
That's the word for my reasons: charisma. Ty, Teacake.
J'sG... just for you.
(Just J & 7)
YEARS ago ... there was a youtube vid with Xena as Janeway's role model / heroine.
(HEROINE: a woman admired or idealized for her courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities)
It was pretty good but has since been lost to the ages.
If anyone on the boards has delusions of vidding, feel free to bring back that idea as a new video.
hux... why do you consider Janeway a sexless reflection for women. Because many woman are not interested in having sex with her, or because you feel Janeway herself is not a sexual person, or that most women do not see themselves as sexual beings?
Crush.....sigh......such a female concept
Talk to me about vigorous fucking not crushing
The first one. It's too innocent. It's like in the Simpsons when Lisa is always "crushing" on non-threatening boys called Corey
I know female sexuality can be more......what's the word?....fluid?, but to me, that fluidity is not what I think of when I hear the word sexy
Sexy implies sex......that at some point there will be some hot, stinking, sweaty and hopefully disgusting.......fucking
My sexy is bigger than your sexy.
But mine is more culturally pervading
See porn for more details
To me, using the term "crush" is an easier way of saying you're attracted to someone.
Crush is an adorable word all about how your heart juices are leaking under the pressure and running down and making everything moist.
Btw J'Rulz, thanks for the videos
Teacake is an artist of expression and persuasion.
teacake, if I'm ever doing some writing and need help describing a girl-crush, I'm calling you first.
Well PMing, but you know what I mean.
I always thought a girl-crush was admiration rather than romantic/sexual thoughts, which is what teacake described.
See, clearly I will need assistance if the story requires accuracy in that department!
We're all doing that, all the time, except maybe for the incredibly stupid.
There's regular admiration, like you admire Neil Armstrong and then there's admiration flushed with ardor. That's the crush. Crush means infatuation is at work. The degree of it and the make up of the person having it will effect how much of this is sexual and/or romantic.
In ye olde books you would see the crush going on between women, or sometimes men, and romance and sex would never be mentioned. Austen has girls smitten with older more socially astute women for instance. While that character might never have a sexual thought about her crush she certainly was in the (biochemical) throes of infatuation and psychologically attracted to the other woman in a way that in a heterosexual world would be reserved for a man.
Let's not lose sight that these are imaginary people we're talking about.
