In response to comparing Lesbians to 45 or his supporters because we have BOUNDARIES:

Dont compare us to Trump. Since when have lesbians had billions of dollars to force their will on others, with full State  support and threatening violence, and enacting it?

Trans have threatened Lesbians and radical feminists and other women over and over again because we disagree.  With murder and rape. This is what MALES do. No matter HOW they dress or act or what feminine gestures they imitate.

Us Lesbians HAVE BOUNDARIES. This is WHY we are hated. We do not cater to males sexually PERIOD. IF there's a penis attached, NO THANKS. A dildo is NOT a penis and will NEVER get you pregnant. No false equivalencies. Lesbians come in all races, ages, sizes, ethnicities and ways of expression from high femme to hardcore Butch and everything inbetween. But we only recognize bio females/wbw as Lesbians=Female homosexuals.

GUEST POST: Pele Sized Rage by Spider Redgold

I have a rage...
in me..
Pele sized rage
 a volcanic lava of rage
I am rage...
And I am tired
Tired of men thinking that can walk into the space feminists have created
and shame me
shame us
into thinking they belong in this volcano sized rage

Try to shame me/us into thinking they know what it is to be girl

Shame us into leaving the word mother behind
Shame is into being uterus bearers

I have a rage in me that is dangerous
like molten lava is dangerous..

I use that rage, not to harm anyone
I use that rage
direct that lava into protecting women and girls
protecting girlhood
protecting tomboys from thinking they must take testosterone to feel allowed/valid

My rage is dangerous
my wild female mind is unleashed
I will protect women and girls to my dying breath

I will lay my body across the gate to the temple

will you step on me to make sure men are comfortable?

On Butch, in response to superfical article trying to sell Butch clothes

To young Butches in the video saying they do what they want and "don't give a fuck"...

No, it goes much much deeper than that and "not giving a fuck". Many Butches IN FACT GIVE A FUCK, and want to be fucked, thus we dress to ATTRACT the kind of womyn WE WANT.

WE are the WARRIORS of the Lesbian communities.  The obvious Dykes, we wear our sexuality on our sleeve, we DEFY Female roles and femininity forced upon us, WE TAKE UP OUR SPACE,  we dont let men control us and often stand up to them and compete with them for jobs and other resources, and we are often hated upon for NOT being sex objects to men but FULLY OUR OWN PERSONS.  WE INSIST on being treated as equals, as seriously as any man, and yet proud to be Lesbian and Female connected to our own unique Sisterhood that has been around and often suppressed for millenia. 

We show the world a Female can be and do anything she wants going to places and professions other women fear to go as groundbreakers and pioneers because we ignore all the accusations of not being "female" or feminine or submissive enough to men. We pursue our goals anyway DESPITE THEM. We are the females who act in every fiber of our beings as if we are FREE of male control.

We do pay the price for our defiance, but also reap the rewards for doing so.

We LOVE and Lust after women.

RadLesFem Survivor and WHY She NEEDS WBW ONLY SPACES

https://radlesfemsurvivor.wordpress.com/https://radlesfemsurvivor.wordpress.com/I feel this is so important to include. For her very survival. I completely feel for her and ONLY in WBW Lesbian centered spaces do I feel most alive!!!


In Response to a Radical Feminist Survivor whom ABSOLUTELY Craves WBW SPACE FOR HER SAFETY

Goddess, I agree with her on so many levels. Never more Separatist after working with men all day in the Trades, where I would be lucky to see even a handful of women if that on the job, with men who didnt want me around, always treating me as "less than". Sacred womyns spaces were places to GET AWAY from them and their patriarchal attitudes, and be able to BE my FULL DYKE SELF without fear, censorship, threats, or male violence on ANY LEVEL(including psychological).

My Dianic rituals were my refuges, and womyns festivals. Other aspects of Dyke and womyns community, parties, groups, events, SF Dyke March were slowly being encroached on by trans. Males who in NO WAY even "pass" as women, the vast majority of them, and whose energy is STILL MALE, despite hormones and feminine dress. The most male aspect being THEIR ATTITUDES and assumption of privilege. In other words, like every other male,they cannot take NO for an answer or boundary, by Females.

She may pick up on their oh so obvious predatory male energy as a survivor, like any other hunted species we are TRAINED to detect males and assume a certain level of wariness around them ESPECIALLY as survivors.  But also as a Witch, Female energy energizes me, male ennergy drains me. Men openly leech off Female energy, THEY HAVE PREYED ON US LONG ENOUGH!!! And so called trans "women", are wolves in sheep's clothing. Not to denigrate real wolves.
Male en femme. They are,still and WILL ALWAYS BE MALE.

WOMYN MUST trust OUR gut instincts and our womyn only environments USED TO BE our refuges. But sadly some women and lesbians HAVE sold us out...

Trust your instincts Sisters, ALWAYS!!

You fuck men, males, (and Female)you are NOT Gay or Lesbian. Both terms MEAN HOMOSEXUAL (Gay) or Female Homosexual. Dyke is a fierce out loud and proud LESBIAN term. Every time a bi/pan/queer individual claims a purely Lesbian or homosexual term IT IMPLIES  our sexuality is fluid and if need be we too could engage in het sex, or be hit on by the opposite sex. Conservative Religion is always pushng this too..that we can be converted to mostly straight.

This is even more problematic for Lesbians cuz dudes THINK they can convert us, or we will make an exception for them. So by you using the term "gay", and other nonLesbians using the term "lesbian or dyke", you put Lesbian/Dyke/Gay womyn at risk to be hit on by het or bi males. It happens ALL THE TIME. And it partly happens cuz they got a bi/pan woman like you coopting OUR labels fucking them, so they THINK WE WILL TOO, if properly persuaded. THAT is nonconsensual!!!

This Lesbian/Dyke whose been gay 36 years DOESNT DO BIO MALES OR WANNA BE MALES OF ANY STRIPE.
WBW Lesbian womyn ONLY.

Charge of the Crone-Author Unknown

This was read at the Croning Ceremony I attended where I was Croned among others. Very powerful and life changing.

I heard this once before in a ritual put on by Bayla at the darkest dark Moon of the Year: right before Winter Solstice. She opened up her Crone circles to ALL WOMYN, and yes Bayla was Lesbian.

Hear the words of the Grandmother of Time:
She who has been known as Hecate, Erishkagel, Cerridwen, Kali-Ma, Anna, Hella, Spider Woman, and many other names - some feared, and some loved, but none ever ignored.

She it is who brings wisdom and the awareness of eternity.
She has been the Maiden, and remembers that joy.
She has been the Mother, and recalls that pleasure.
But age has changed her, and taught her the mysteries of the Wheel that is ever turning, the Wheel that is life, death, and rebirth.

She is the whirling tornado, the erupting volcano, the rising tidal wave, the trembling of the earth's crust.
With age comes an understanding of the past, and a glimpse of the future.
For, in the turning of the Wheel, the past is the future, and the future is the past.
She is the Learned One, the Teacher, the Bringer of Inevitable Change.
She is the Dark of the Moon, the Hidden One, the invisible unknown that lies ahead.

But do not fear her for she is not malicious, and her touch, however harsh, is love. Only in ignorance is she scorned and reviled.
Those who do not know her, parody her as the ugly old woman whose powers were said to blight crops and sour the milk in the cow. It is fear that turns her age into abomination, her wrinkles into hideous deformity, and her voice into an evil and manipulative cackle.
For those who sought power over the earth were afraid to face her wisdom and her unalterable truth.
But in the old days, we sat at her feet to learn the most ancient lore.

From her came the knowledge of the healing herbs, and the chants and songs that shaped our lives. She sat in honour at our councils, our marketplaces, in our homes. She governed our governing, and interpreted our laws. She gave focus to our changing seasons. She was our teacher, our oracle, our promise of rebirth.

Come, honour her as of old, listen now to the words of Wise One, the ancient Seer, the Crone!

Lesbian Issues so Easily Dismissed by Het and Bi Women

I feel as the other feels, where issues that affect mostly het women like "porn and prostitution" are "real" issues, but issues that affect Lesbians like equal access to the workplace, wages, work opportunities, the ability to be OUT on the job and not discriminated against or even demoted or fired, the ability to show our love and hold hands in public, to not not fear harasment or violence against us for doing so, the worst being "corrective rape", religious intolerance and hatred against and a Presidency and Justice Department that wants no protections for Lesbian or gay workers and to strip away any protections we MAY have, the access to womyn and even Lesbian only spaces, bookstores, festivals, bars, events, conferences DENIED to us and lost where we cannot even meet AS LESBIANS without male interference and claiming of our very identity and Being, pressuring other young or newly out Lesbians that "trans women are women" and " penis is female, get over your penisphobia", and any smack of Butchness "you must be a man, you oughta transition", all THESE LESBIAN ISSUES deserve just as much attention as the needs of straight and bi women.

The Word Lesbian is POWERFUL Guest Post by Miriam Ben Shalom

The word Lesbian is powerful. If a woman says she is a Lesbian, that means she has discarded much of Patriarchy, has taken the love of her Self to other women. Being a Lesbian means, a woman does not rely on men to define her Self nor does she depend on men to support her or do for her. Saying "I am a Lesbian" means that one will not treat women as men do--as objects to be used and demeaned.

Being a Lesbian (and not 'queer') means that a woman can be a warrior, a fighter, a healer, a teacher, but all her energy is for and by women. A Lesbian is, to borrow a phrase, for us, by us always. To say "I am a Lesbian" is to connect historically with the poet of Lesbos, with the legions of women come before whose names we do not know, but whom we inuit, whom we grieve for amid flames and smoke of the auto-de-fe and Inquisitions.

Lesbian is a word some will not accept because they cannot tolerate the power of the word, they can't abide by the construct of being a free woman to love whom she will, who directs her love, both agape, and eros, to her Sisters. Such women can't give up men, can't give up servitude to men, can't give up the notion that they need men to exist. They can't give up the idea that slavery is freedon, that revolution is what being a Lesbian is. Those who will have sex with a woman but call themselves queer and who pander to men in dresses fear the Lesbian because deep inside, they know she speaks the truth of what a woman is and can be when she takes her power, accepts it, and follows her path whatever that may be.

The Lesbian says, do not call me cis, do not call me queer, do not call me by any name but woman, do not call us by any pronoun but she, her, hers. The Lesbian whom some call butch is not masculine, she is the ultimate of female power. She does not bend to the parody of beauty that men foist on women. She does not shrink from that task at hand. She deals with the world sure in her own presence and power. The Lesbian whom some call femme is no man's dream, is no woman weakness. She stands in her power against the demands of patriarchy and lives as she will in her beauty, in her life, and refuses the definition men might like to place upon her. And then there are Lesbians--we used to be called kiki-- those of us who do what we can, when we can, how we can. It is never a proposition of "may". We do what we must to care for our Sisters and let them care for us. We never lose sight of who we are and what we are and we refuse to dishonor ourselves and our Sisters by using any other name but Lesbian.

We define ourselves in each --our own unique way for our Self and for our existence. As for me, I am what I am: I am the howler at the edge of the darkness of the bent ones; i am the one with red eyes and a fierce growl, the one who will not allow the bent ones to have their way and desire to put shoah upon womenkind. The one who looks for the false and unjust, the one who looks for those who would deny women. The one who howls in warning.  We define our power by ourselves, we define ourselves by our power.

Lesbian is the ultimate act of revolution in the implicit denial of patriarchy, of male demands, of male hubris, of male violence and destruction. Lesbian is the word that stands against the annihilation and erasure of women.

Just my thoughts (and there are more) and I stick to them. But then, I am a Lesbian.

Wild Amazon Soul

I do not connect with the Queen thing at all, but like I said before my Path is Amazon. Fierce Warrior, Tribal, ancient, and putting womyn, Goddess and Mother Earth first and foremost forever. Protector of our Womyns Mysteries, connected to the WildWomon within, shamanic, magical, intense and protective. I came into my Amazon Path at Puberty when I got into the martial arts at age 14, a Lifelong Path, combined with Dianic oriented Wicca when the Dyke Witches brought me out at 21.

In 2011 a culmination of much of my Amazon Work and teachings I High Priestessed an Amazon Main Ritual for our Community of womyn on Land at EWF, and it was an intense Initiation for me into Amazon High Priestesshood and OWNING that. It was Primal and powerful where She spoke through me as Her  vessel.

As a result my Path has become more primal, shamanic, subtle and not contained,  connected deeply with Mother Earth. It is hard to put into words, but a Time prior to there ever being Queens. The Female Tribe of Amazons and WildWomyn honoring each other, Wild young girls, Artemis and various emanations of Goddess  and Mother Earth. Dancing, drumming, bonfires, raising Energy and connecting, like at Michfest.http://theurbanhowl.com/2016/10/12/invoking-artemis-danielle-dulsky/
