Many of my contemporaries would recall feeling as children that there was no one in the world who looked like them, or expressed themselves the way they did. But what about the ladies? In a completely arbitrary order here are eight lesbian cartoons I watched as kid. I guess I do tend to be the last to know…. The classic lesbian pioneers if you will.

Here's what I think was really the deal: I think that Velma always had a crush on Fred, but knowing that she could never compete with Daphne for Fred's affections, she submerged herself in her only comfort, academia. Really, many average-looking, glasses-wearing, slightly stocky, brainiac girls are there that many of us?? I've been there and done that; and if the guy's that shallow, we're never going to win his affections we know that he's not worth winning, anyway, but media driven social icons and imaging are difficult things to shake. I don't think that Velma ever allowed herself to get to a point where she realized that, or perhaps she was just so head over heels that just traipsing after Fred in any capacity was better than nothing at all. It's a bit dysfunctional, but more believable than the lesbian theory, to me.
