Can I tell my teacher about my feelings for her?

Hi, my name is Anna and I'm 18 years old, just about to graduate out of high-school. Like many teens, I have had a sustained crush on my teacher, problem is, she's female. After graduating, I want to tell her how I feel, to get it off my chest and all. I can't stop thinking about her, and I want to let her know. Would this be unwise? What should I do?

Lesbian Butch-Femme Relationships

Dear Rachel: My question concerns the Butch/Femme relationship. I have always considered myself femme/feminine, but I don't know if this is really all there is to being femme in a butch/femme relationship. In the past my girlfriends have been either other femmes or more androgynous, but I am in the process of starting a relationship with a butch. She has very clear expectations as to how a femme should behave, and seems to assume that I should already know them (because I say I am femme). Help! I want this relationship to work, but I feel as though I don't know the ground rules for this kind of relationship. What should I do?
