I think he meant the more manly lesbian that goes for the more girly lesbians. It's not that hard to figure out ya know.

It was in response to Cube's confusion.

Everybody knows you have your Lipstick Lesbians, and then you have your Lumberjack Lesbians.

OT April is neither girly nor tomboyish, she's sort of inbetween the two.

You mean like a butch? Implying April is the femme? I am pretty sure many lesbians don't require the dichotomy. I've seen couple that appear to be both "lipstick" or both "tomboy" or whatever.

At any rate, she does have nice breasts and all, but somehow in many versions she has no friends or apparent love interests.

She's literally paired with Casey in every single series besides a few.

I mean before him. And he is not that amazing a catch. They pretty much bond because both of their lives have been upended by the Turtles.

Nothing can compare to the beauty of two lipstick lesbians. I know they exist.

I can see how some of you would consider her in between femme and tomboy. That yellow jumpsuit is pretty hideous.

Anyone find it funny April consistently gets younger in every incarnation? In Mirage she starts off as a woman (probably late 20's and then goes into her early 30's), then she gets gradually younger with each version.

Original cartoon she was 28

4kids she was 23

IDW she's a College student, so around 19-20 at the beginning I imagine

Nick she's literally a 16 year old teen


April literally went from a mature woman to more young girl or teen for each newer generation.

Yeah, I think I read somewhere that she's 27 at the beginning of Mirage.

I think they changed it because it may come across as creepy having an adult woman hanging out with a bunch of teenage boys. I personally prefer that approach because she's more like a mother figure to them and I find that really sweet.

Well the Turtles never really acted like teens in either the original cartoon or 4kids, so it didn't feel much different. It felt like April was just interacting with other people of her age.

The Nick show really is the first series where the Turtles are written as actual teenagers.

Huh back when I was 16 I'd say most people I knew had friends and hung out at each other's. I mean, sure, when you're a kid/teenager you can be friends one day and then 2 months later no longer like them anymore due to some stupid fight or argument, but it's a lot easier to get a social group when you're younger due to something as simple as "he likes the same cartoons as I do". It's much easier to quickly get acquainted people of your age bracket when you're 18 than it is when you're 40.

The FW series doesn't even sexualize April that much. You gotta really be paying attention to notice suggestive shots. Then again, I watch anime, so any possible fanservice that the FW series has has nothing on your average anime.

Well looks aren't everything. And she doesn't sem to be the type of person who puts herself out there. In the FW series Irma and the Turtles are her only friends, pretty much. No way Vernon or Burne could be godo love interests for her. Not to mention she seems too career driven to care about marriage and dating.

Love and attraction work in odd ways. So many times I've seen couples that made me wonder why one of the parties was attracted to the other.

I haven't read much of Mirage, but on the 2k3 series I think that couple worked out well. It would not have worked out well in the FW series, though.

I guess he doesn't qualify as African American to cubed because he doesn't say things like "yessa massa", "sup dawg", "yo", "kill whitey" and "shee-it negro!"

lol I agree, I was just trying to steer the conversation back on track before it dissolved into the nihilism of most threads when things dissolve into boob conversations or whatever.

They worked out fine in Mirage. The fact that they did is kind of a miracle and mostly testament to Casey's wild turn-around in personality. I guess that's what going sober does for you.

Great, it's like she regressed alongside the franchise as a "kid's thing"...

Sooner or later the characters will all be kindergartners. Maybe in 2018. (Not serious of course, but eesh... really hope it's never like that.)

In the 1987 series she had it pretty bad for Bugman, and at least one other guy.

I don't think anyone even bothered to mention the movie portrayals of April and Casey...

Well at least she had human friends in the movie, such as her boss and her boss's son.

Movie Casey was... well let's put it this way. I have never seen such a rough start to a massage.

Well in the 2014 film she did go back to being 28.
