book person, dog person, gay person ♥ they/them or she/her ♥ i care about you ♥ my tag is #spark barks
small nasty things people do to lesbians that you need to realize aren't ok
suggest there is some hypothetical man u could love
lavish you with praise upon the slightest feminization of ur presentation
make comments about your clothes or style like "girls shouldn't wear neckties tho right" or "idk i think it just looks weird"
get offended when you talk about how men make you uncomfortable, how you don't like them, etc.
get offended when you make jokes like "every man owes me $200"
say things like "you don't own that word!" w/r/t the word queer
act like they have the right to police when and where you call out homophobic remarks
saying they're a lesbian when they're not, making a mockery of acual lesbians' oppression
take the words butch & femme and try to apply them to straight people
suggest that there's something ugly or scary about lesbians
suggest that lesbians are gay bc they can't attract men
oversexualize or undersexualize lesbian love: reducing us to depraved sex maniacs or acting as if we are puppylike delicate things who never experience desire
there's more but the point here is that lesbians r uniquely mistreated in a lot of big ways and in a lot of small ones, some of which r listed here. im proud to be a lesbian and to my fellow lesbians: i love you. we deserve so much better. and if we don't get it naturally we will take it by force. we are gay and we are magnificent, and i wouldnt have it any other way.
