So is the Dahlia part too old for me to get? (like so many things *sniff*)

I'd like to know more about this word too, maybe a kind elderly lesbian will tell us. Ok, not that I said elderly they won't post. Err I mean, a wise and someone who is many days young. lol.

Ahhahaha now I feel bad too...I think we're what they call punks now. I'm thinking maybe it's an older clothing line or something...hopefully someone knows.

Being from Indiana it doesn't matter how, er, old I may be, we knew no slang for that which could not be spoken.
