On the subject of “Lesbians Until Graduation,” and all the stigma attached to the label, a commenter points to the Two Nice Girls song on the subject. A sampling:

I spent my last ten dollars on birth control and beer
My life was so much simpler when I was sober and queer
But the love of a strong hairy man has turned my head I fear
And made me spend my last ten bucks on birth control and beer

It concludes: “there’s certain thrills that lesbian love simply cannot supply / Like paying for abortions from sperm gone awry.” Indeed.
