Lesbian is MORE than just a label! We have a rich and long herstory!
Ok, so this REALLY burns me up. Because Lesbian is MORE than just a label! This was posted to another women's and mostly Lesbian Facebook group I was in without question or comment. I felt I had to, and my response is below. As predicted, the moderator of that group moved it IMMEDIATELY to instead of open commentary, that EVERY posting is now fully moderated. Very, very predictable. And she's a Lesbian herself! Let's NOT let our community or our words be coopted, rewritten or used in ways that don't reflect US. Lesbian is NOT a catchall label for anyone who is not bio gay male, or for the rest of the 'queer' alphabet soup! We are Female Homosexuals, we are womyn loving womyn, we are DykeAmazons, we are Butch, we are Femme, we are anything inbetween, we are born female, bleed as females and LOVE FEMALES ONLY! I will fight till my dying day FOR our Lesbian/Dyke communities, personhoods, and presence, intact, with integrity, and in Sisterhood! And yes, we have a Sex, and that sex is FEMALE. We are not 'genderless' or 'sexless'. Though we may want to throw out all 'genda' roles or boxes, we are still FEMALE and lust and LOVE FEMALES!!!!!!
