So here is my POINT, to pick up from the Vagina Anthem Lesbians being censored in FAVOR of trans.
I was reading on the Debate about somebody putting a pink pussy hat on Harriet Tubman statue.
For non Americans Harriet Tubman was a black woman who rescued slaves in the underground railroad they called it so she was quite a shero but a black woman shero of course so the black folks were upset especially some black women and one wrote a poem to try to wake white women up that this was inappropriate.
That I can understand because many black women feel slighted by white feminism and the fact that 53% of white women voted for trump which makes me mad and that's where I bring in my Jewish and lesbian background that I definitely wasn't one of those women and I am oppressed by that system in different ways.
However where I live now I am surrounded by those types all over the white working class in the mid West and there isn't a democratic senator or congressperson to be seen for miles and miles hundreds of miles.
In any case she talks about in her poem about this situation with a pink pussy hat and wake up white woman and don't assume your issues are our issues basically but also throws in the oppression of queer and trans women of color and how not every woman has a pussy or vagina so that's what I have a problem and I don't wanna say it on my profile because I feel safer in here.
I can get behind the black woman struggle the black lesbian struggle but I am sorry I am not supporting trans because they don't support lesbians and in her Poem she mentions women and trans she never says the L word or the D word Dyke so in that sense I feel completely invisible.
As we are every time we try to assert ourselves that all those for communities are not the same and we have very differing needs it would be just like saying people of color: Blacks, Hispanics, Asians and Indigenous people, ALL Have the same needs And history that's what LGBT means to me it means invisible Ising us lesbians because our needs are very different than the other groups all of them have men in volved and then you involve all those other letters and keep adding to it and lesbians become even more invisible that's why the let's remove the L from it because and they've already remove the L actually. Lesbians/Dykes are barely Mentioned anymore unless putting us down or silencing us and assuming we're under the great queer umbrella and that women and trans includes us automatically
