I mean, they don’t care about us. They don’t give a shit about ACTUAL queer women - the only kind of “lesbians” they approve of are “political lesbians”, who are not queer/lesbian at all, but rather appropriative straight chicks. I have literally been told by “political lesbians” that I’m objectifying women by daring to love them and be attracted to them. And yet I keep seeing my fellow actual lesbians/queer women spout radfem BS; some are even defending “political lesbians”. And just… no. I absolutely hate seeing my fellow queer women supporting a movement that hates queer and especially trans* women. D:
Lesbian is a political identity.
The only “born this way” is that you are born male or female.
Everything else is a social construct.
lol, just admit that you’re a fucking hetero already. I’m not a lesbian as a goddamn political identity. Unlike you, Brennan, I can’t just go “oh, I don’t wanna face the stigma of being gay, guess I’ll just go back to boys now :D” Lesbian isn’t some radikewl identity I can wear when it suits me. Lesbian is the sexuality I was born with. Again, unlike you, I’m a lesbian because I love and am attracted to women, not because I want to be ~radikewl~ Oh, and of course you had to throw in some cissexism with your homophobia, didn’t you? Don’t delude yourself into thinking that actual LGBTQ people don’t see through your bullshit. You’re not a fucking lesbian. Stop appropriating my sexuality for radikewl points.
And yes, I count “political lesbians” (appropriative hetero scum) as straight. Most of them seem to be either radfems (I fucking hate radfems in general, too) or just clueless “sex-positive” (except when the people having sex are *gasp* queer, of course) feminists.
Eurgh, I’m getting increasingly fed-up with the feminist movement. Hetero NT ladies don’t know shit about my experiences. No, not even if they claim to be “political lesbians”.

When I started typing this sentence, 11,970 people had used “f*ggot” on Twitter today.
When I started typing this sentence, that number was up to 11,982.
This fantastic, albeit horrifying website logs how many people use “f*aggot,” “no homo,” “d*ke” and “so gay” on Twitter every day in real time, including a feed of those tweets as they occur (TW for homophobia). The numbers are astounding.
Homophobic language is everywhere, all the time. This is the terrifying proof.
Oh, and by the time I finished this post - 12,077.
A program led by Reverend Mark Kiyimba, from the Unitarian Universalist Church of Uganda. Any money you donate goes to Ugandans to improve Uganda, not white saviors or colonialists. This project is to create a queer space that provides internet connections, giving a voice to marginalized people. More information can be found at the link.
The Reverend is a leader in the LGBT movement in Uganda, and currently runs a school and orphanage near Masaka. If you can’t give, please boost at least. This is an expensive project and he has told me that it will take much effort. Thank you.
I’ve just learned that in Moscow, Pride marches have just been banned for 100 years. Anti-gay activists are using the Russian government’s gay gag laws to sue Madonna for $10,000,000 because she spoke up for the LGBT community. And punk band Pussy Riot has been sentenced to 2…
If studying-lgbtq-people inboxes you asking to take part in questions about LGBTQ people “to help her understand” DO NOT DO IT. It is Sophie M Herold, the girl from Germany who attacks LGBTQ people and outs them to others. She is transphobic, homophobic and one of the sickest people I know….
