Misunderstandings with warped oedipal undertones often plague queer women in intergenerational relationships.Once, the author and poet Eileen Myles was checking out at a store with a younger woman she was dating at the time, when the cashier asked her, “How are you doing today, Mom?Everybody’s cool with women dating up, so long as the older person they’re dating is a man.Increased visibility for intergenerational lesbian relationships doesn’t only shed light on the public discomfort they inspire — these depictions also reflect the real-life lesbians who’ve been dating like this since the dawn of always.They joked about their jobs and Dungeons & Dragons.“I hadn’t had that close a friendship in years, honestly,” Martela adds.It was Chaubal’s first time at a salon, when both women were in the early stages of their gender transitions; a lot of traditionally feminine activities still had the sparkling sheen of newness.“If we’d been the same age, we would have hooked up that first weekend,” says Martela.

Take Emma Stone, Scarlett Johansson, and Jennifer Lawrence’s entire careers.According to their social media PDA, at least, actors Holland Taylor (age 72) and Sarah Paulson (age 40), are ridiculously, deeply in love.My colleague Sarah Karlan recently rounded up the sweetest tweets exchanged between the newly public couple.Not because they are gay, but because Sarah Paulson is dating the crypt keeper.” Depictions of significant lesbian age differences were mostly the stuff of subculture before this year, when a number of films pushed the phenomenon into the mainstream spotlight.Three films released in 2015 that centered on lesbian characters — Paul Weitz’s Grandma, Peter Sollett’s Freeheld, and most recently, Todd Haynes’ Carol — all involved intergenerational romantic relationships.
