From the leatherarchives:Your #WLHP herstory lesson for today: Lesbian Sex Mafia, aka LSM, was founded in 1981 by Dorothy Allison and Jo Arnone and is the oldest continuously running women’s BDSM support group in the country. LSM identifies themselves as, “A support and information group for lesbian and bisexual women interested in so-called “politically incorrect” sex – fantasy and role playing, bondage, S/M, costumes, alternate gender identities, etc.” LSM prides themselves on creating a welcoming, supportive space for any person who identifies as a woman and is interested in exploring kink in a safe, sane, and consensual way. LSM is quick to point out that they are not politically motivated in any way, preferring to focus on cultivating a tight-knit community.

Evening Post- August 12, 1899, “Thrashed by a Lady Cyclist”. 

An extraordinary scene was witnessed on Saturday morning in Peel Lane, a thoroughfare connecting Little Hulton with Tyldesley, in which the principal participants were a young lady cyclist and a youth of nineteen or twenty. The lady was riding at a good pace, and when in a quiet part of the road the young man, who had apparently been imbibing, stepped into the roadway, and, addressing some insulting remarks to the cyclist, made as if he intended pulling her off the machine. She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in scientific fashion, to the delight of several coliers who were passing. The young man made off, and the cyclist, who is believed to be a Bolton lady noted for her athletic powers, rode off towards Tyldesley. 

What an awesome tale- the tale of a lady on two wheels not taking any guff!
