the thing about lesbians

i am concerned the new generation of LGBTQ2 is doing a chant of transphobia/biphobia/sex worker phobia and islamophophobia all in one breath and without any analysis of each issue or understanding that these are not entirely related issues arising from patriarchy

that islam is genociding lgbt2 and against sex work – which is not a middle class side hustle, but a global problem of human trafficking and that bi/pan and trans women who are unable to accept a no without name calling to dating are behaving like the hetero incels, who , insult ,assault, rape and murder because they are unable to behavior in a dating positive manner .

in 2019, I attended a Vancouver BC Canada Dyke March Town Hall about trans inclusion organized by trans, and while the meeting had no agenda, there was one.

to speak only about the dangers faced by trans, as if no other group was under the same threat of assault rape and murder by white supremists,

the meeting did not allow any time for issues of ethnicity, despite attendees who were there to speak to, and included a heterosexual couple who claimed to be lesbians and who advocated violence against the police who were being hired to stand between the marchers and the white supremists

and included a half naked man wearing a naked barbie doll as a necklace like a truck mud flap who told women to play with their nipples during the day, which is sexual harassment –

lesbians and dykes are at risk of harm by hetero men we do not court and under pressure to date under threat of name calling, those we are not attracted to in a battle over words and across world views that differ and absent of understanding human rights in public are one thing and dating is a personal choice not subject to a vote. or decided by one person for another.

so..

the thing about being a lesbian is that others do not define lesbian labels. words or phrases or decide for lesbians and especially not ignore, treat causally or reject a no.

it is harassment and potentially criminal when hetero men respond to a no with insults, assaults, rape and murder, and it is not okay for women who are bisexual, pan, omni or trans to tell any women, particularly lesbians, that a no is bigotry and not allowed, rather than accept not attracted to and respect the person one presumes to be interested in.

phobia is a violent reaction, while no is disinterested, it is different from bigotry.

not heteros, not homosexuals. Lesbians are lesbians, same gender and sexuality attraction in one complete word.

indeed. human rights are for the public square

dating is for sex selection and a personal choice, for which, there is a no.

without insult, assault, rape or murder.

bad when males deny that and worse when other women do.

even this article avoids saying lesbians love vagina. so why would a lesbian be with any thing else?

the idea that a lesbian would not partner with a transwoman who can not have a child is beyond foolish on it’s face..

Okay. : not attracted to is not bigotry or bias.

it is not attracted to the person’s physicality or mental energy.

being called phobic of bisexual, pan and trans is foolish on it’s face.

Lesbians are not murdering other women for not being lesbians

we are pro lesbian and want to date other same expression lesbians

and no one gets to put labels on or take labels away

we are lesbians or dykes, not homosexuals.

Hetero men who name called when refused dates are bad behaviour and any women who denies lesbians or any person a no on a date – which is a personal choice, and not a human rights issue – is part of the problem of dating.

to each person preference of desire and to the choice of sexual selection and intimate relations

Lesbians helped heterowomen get reproductive and workplace rights and then they went off and enjoyed those… then there was AIDs….. and now… this:

*article quotes*

However, our findings throw up several questions:

Who is on the wrong side of history when the GBT community operates a large-scale gaslighting of lesbians to accept the mantra that “trans women are women”; penises are deemed to be a female organ; and heterosexual intercourse is now redefined as a lesbian sexual practice?
Who is on the wrong side of history when the GBT community uncritically supports a population of transwomen who identify as lesbians to coerce lesbians into having sex with transwomen against their will?
Who is on the wrong side of history when lesbians’ sexual boundaries are disrespected and publicly demonised as hateful by the very charities whose purpose it is to defend them?
Who are the GBT organisations protecting by refusing to engage with lesbians’ very serious concerns?
Major gay, bisexual and trans organisations such as Stonewall and Pride in London should hang their heads in shame for ignoring our rights.

https://news.trust.org/item/20190412100802-6md1q/Lesbians need to get the L out of the LGBT+ communityLesbians are being callednews.trust.org

stop demanding dating as a condition of human rights support

that has to go both ways and to deny a no is to deny rights

lesbians do not expect their lesbian partners to be pregant and if the partner is a transwoman, it is very foolish to expect a lesbian to be sad she cannot get a transwoman pregnant. when the pregancy risk is the other way.

lesbian and gay sex is not procreative sex and that is part of it’s appeal and attraction.

Generational change is inevitable, healthy, and necessary to progress. What I am living through right now is a painful transitional moment in which some of those older lesbian institutions are still going strong, and seeking participation and funding, while a current generation of activists are distancing themselves from such events, or even demonstrating against them. Younger, queer activists were vocal in opposing the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival; right-wing religious groups once eager to shut the festival down had moved on to bigger targets. This dynamic—a next generation of feminists attacking earlier lesbian institutions and disparaging their participants as less evolved—is not unique to the 21st century or the United States; it is embedded in Jill Gardiner’s powerful book From the Closet to the Screen, which describes a 1970–71 Gay Liberation Front “zap” against London’s Gateways Club bar. As this generational shift grinds on, how should the most recent decades of cultural production be interpreted, understood, and preserved? How will we use the tools of history to examine something we know existed as an investigable community?

dear bi, pan and trans women

sometimes bisexual is a portion of a woman’s life and she later lesbians and maybe call me then, see if I am available.

sometimes a person is attracted to a person because they are unclear on their own self and what they are attracted to, that personality of a sexuality and gender person.

so when bisexual women end up with men or are a phase but are not a phase. it is as exhausting as men who say they are women and then dress like women and surgically mutilate their bodies. still not women and do not define lesbian words.

i am attracted to vagina and not interested in a penis or a reverse penis hole that lacks a gspot or cervix and a woman around it.

meanwhile. bisexual and pan women and transwomen are able to date each other, without lesbians having to date outside of our group preference arising from our individual choices and preferences.

I am a lesbian, the word is gender and sexuality in one, seeking the same expression in another lesbian.

Lesbian erasure is the tendency to ignore, remove, falsify, or reexplain evidence of lesbian women or relationships in history, academia, the news media, and other primary sources.

Lesbians may also be ignored within the LGBT community and their identity may not be acknowledged

attraction to someone is not done by debate or framework

it is a physical response and an emotional reaction to the personality

lesbians have no reason to be made to feel that they have to date any person, trans or not and no one should deny anyone a no

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesbian_erasureLesbian erasure – Wikipediaen.wikipedia.org

women are being erased in the medial sphere and in LGBTQ

comments from mewe:

Alex C

I don’t like this modern trend in the community where some are calling others bigots or trsnsphobes for being attracted to just one set of genitals and not the other. I’m sorry, but we aren’t all pansexual or bisexual. Sexual attraction is not just about gender as many would have you believe. It’s also about biological sex and always has been, whether we like it or not. It isn’t fair to label someone a bigot or judge their character for their sexual attractions. Sexual attraction is NOT a choice and never has been. That is a fact that seems to be lost on more and more people in the community these days.

nina
yes. exactly. people with a wider range of attraction do need to stop calling monosexuals bigots for gay or lesbian sexuality.

and there is no reason to be sorry or that canadian as to say it to soften the view you are legit able to hold and express. and that is legit on the face of it

and the idea of removing biology from understanding people is also very bizarre, especially given dating is sexual selection and not a human rights issue.

name calling just validates a no on dating, as it is a major red flag on what a relationship would be. Dating is about attraction to and is selecting for sexual activity and as such, is a personal choice that everyone has a yes or no on, without threat of name calling, assault, rape or murder. Being rejected as a date is not a human rights complaint.

Alex C

Yeah, removing biology is a good way to put it. Some are 100% pan and 0% concerned with any biology or anatomy, and good for them, but we aren’t all like that. I can’t pretend to be pansexual to make that community happy, that would be like asking a straight person to pretend to be gay, and calling them a bigot for not being gay attracted. That’s absurd, and I hope this trend doesn’t stick or it will be very unhealthy for the community.

As a cis gay man I’ve always found the prospect of gay trans men interesting. I sometimes find myself attracted to trans men. Most that I’ve met in person seem to be interested in women though.

nina

I do not use the term cis, it has too many problems with the sissy slur and copting from black culture sounding like sis and. your identity is in your world experience. not other people’s who need other words to make sense of themself.

it is hard to have a conference on women and exclude mensuration, abortion/pregnancy and, menopause as panels and discussion/information.

nor should anyone pretend to be attracted to who they are not or use a label to avoid being name called.

bisexuals vs pansexual is a horrible debate too, bisexual being binary attraction and pan being beyond binary should be a compromise

Alex C

I personally don’t like the term pansexual because in fact there are NOT a panorama of sexes. There are 2 biological sexes, and in rare cases intersex. Pansexual refers to an attraction to multiple genders, and gender is a distinct concept from biological sex, so they really should describe that differently and not fight with people who are bisexual.

nina

bi vs pan is not about either one of those, it is about transgender. and it is about making gender something in a person’s mind and that is kinda like having to respect a person’s religion when you are an atheist.

once you reject the idea that there is only one hetero way to be either gender, it is not hard to realize there are many ways to be. personality and character is not limited to sexuality/gender and for lesbians there is one word that includes both, given faggot was not reclaimed by gay men.

Alex C

Gender is a social construct and a personal issue. I don’t like when people misuse science and try to say that science proves anything about gender. It doesn’t. Science only proves biological sex, and shows there’s a spectrum of hormonal balances, brain chemistry and neurological patterns that usually correspond to one biological sex but don’t always, and many people (including me) exist somewhere on that spectrum. We’re just getting caught up in stupid labels with all this infighting about what is factual and what isn’t, and who is “woke” and who isn’t. The science is very clear.

nina

how gender is represented and expected is a cultural concept that does vary, but that people have a gender is biology. I agree – it is also like religion vs biology, when biology says nothing about religion, and anthropology puts religion in it’s cultural place.

academics, medical, legal and then average people understanding differs across jargon specific vs casual use of language – and then are the agenda activists.

MEANWHILE:

everyone is one person and not any or all others.

“all identities simultaneously” – anyone else wondering how self loathing is driving this?

The film depicts Wagemans making the prototype for a futuristic mask, a piece of hackable body equipment that would incorporate software and could conceptually queer the notion of identity. “The story Samuel created is about documenting the making of a mask that is a fictive hacked nano-tech transhuman prototype that connects a global network of queer people who reject the mainstream appetite for immortality, super-intelligence, and well-being,” she told Dazed. “An object that you could take off and allows any uncensored software to be installed like scrambled identity – becoming all identities simultaneously.”

After getting some aggressive and unwelcome attention from male patrons of the bar, the ladies decided they’d had enough and took to the stage as part of the venue’s open mic night, singing a parody of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic “I Enjoy Being a Girl”:

“When I see a man who’s sexist/

and does something that I don’t like/

I just tell him that he can fuck off/

I enjoy being a dyke!

I’ve always been an uppity woman/

I refuse to run — I stand and strike/

‘Cause I’m gay and I’m proud and I’m angry/

And I enjoy being a dyke!”

Meghan, 39, admitted that she was naive at the start of her relationship with Harry and unprepared for the strictures of royal life.

The former television star, who is biracial, said that when she was pregnant with son Archie, there were “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”

Harry confirmed the conversation, saying: “I was a bit shocked.” He said he would not reveal who made the comment, though Winfrey said he told her it was not either of his grandparents, Queen Elizabeth or her husband, Prince Philip.

In the U.S., where Harry and Meghan now live, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki was asked whether President Joe Biden and his wife Jill had any reaction to the interview.

Psaki said Meghan’s decision to speak about her struggles with mental health “takes courage” and “that’s certainly something the president believes in.”

nurturing or neutering words defining a gender’s spectrum

The company had said it would use the term “womxn” in order to be more gender neutral in its language.

But LGBT communities online called the change transphobic because it suggested trans women were not women.

“We’re committed to growing from these experiences… and ensuring we’re inclusive to all,” the company tweeted.

“Womxn” has become a popular alternative word for people who say that the term “women” has patriarchal roots. Some believe the term is inclusive of trans women and some non-binary people, but that is contested.

It echoes the use of the word “Latinx” in some Spanish-speaking communities in an attempt to move away from the traditional use of genders in the language.

https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-56251452

this queer blogger adds:

not entirely, there was in the 1990s the spellings

womym and wimmim as the plural

these were excluding transwomen

so womxn is an attempt to have a word that includes heteronormative to transwomen

and some nonbinary persons

of woman, women which have the words man and men in them

meanwhile y and x.. y is the male gene and x the female

so.. a word is crafted to mean the opposite of the spelling

I want to say this won’t gain him an inch of ground. Those who have such an attitude are already firmly in his camp. He’s lost moderates, not extremists. He might do better to come out somewhat (obviously not fully) supportive of transgender rights, to show he’s not entirely made of hatred and stupidity. He won’t lose any of his lunatic base, who he can still capture with hatred of minorities and “illegals”.

But that said, there a a lot of otherwise reasonable moderates who do get heebie-jeebies at transgender. 😕2 Replies

then I would call them regular conservatives, not “otherwise reasonable” nor “moderates”. in 2020 USA politics there is only the extreme, and both parties have been galloping right for some time

Socially extreme conservatives have punishing fiscal policy because of their hatred but do not disguise their motive, whereas so called moderates, fixate on the finances without admitting it is owing to their biases. The republican party only accepts LGBQ2 who are ethnicity bigots who think that will make them straight enough, and ethnicities who hate LGBTQ2 as if that will make them white enough.

remember when Clarence Thomas was promoted to the Boys Club and whereas Anita Hill joined the ranks of the ignored because his career was too important so his conduct was okay.

Once again, if you’re religious and are operating a business in the secular domain, then you by default must deal with all customers. If your conscience cannot permit this, that is your right. But if so, then you must trust in your God to provide another life path for you, and leave your business.1 Reply

yes. cake is not art in the sense of legal purposes. this is why religion does not make a person good, only delusional. Children are told to not listen to their imaginary friends because look what happens when adults to. eh.

editted to:

yes. cake is not art in the sense of legal purposes of art, which is a creation to comment upon, rather than an item to be consumed to celebrate a live event. there is a line of art and line and this is the battleground issue as the “husband and wife” language to “spouse and spouse” to gender neutralize the oaths, and allow any couple to choose which words they want to represent their particular union depending on the pairing. this is why religion does not make a person good, only delusional about where one’s rights end and another’s begin. Children are told to not listen to their imaginary friends because look what happens when adults to. eh. children are taught to share and then that is how adults behave over things more important than things.

meanwhile in 2020. a victory of inclusion of sorts…

what about this compared to the hallmark?

from the article:

However, the series, which starts this week is more than just Desperate Housewives in hijabs. The smoking and swearing of the main characters has proved controversial, as has the tackling of issues such as child abuse and domestic violence, as well as same-sex relationships, which are illegal in Pakistan.

“Because we are showing such a diverse range of women, it was important to show the entire spectrum of sexuality. It would have been wrong if they were all straight because not all women in Pakistan are straight,” said Abbasi, who is based in Leeds.

There is also a transgender character. “The reason the women open the detective agency is to level the playing field for everyone who identifies as a woman, so a transgender character who identifies as a woman should be included.”

He added: “The fact that she’s transgender is not addressed on the show and that is deliberate. It’s not that I was overlooking her identity or ashamed of it. It was to show the women coming to the agency were all equal.”

Well, that does put things into perspective now, doesn’t it? 🤔

Maybe Pakistan has their own version of the Hallmark channel we can watch…?

from the article:

“she is raising an alarm about the increasingly common trend to use a gender-neutral term, like “people,” to group together the LGBTQ community with biologically born women, (who identify as women), to the point where it is becoming unacceptable to use the word “woman.”

Nina Notes the word “heterosexual” is missing from the above paragraph.

and it is a problem for White Heterosexual Women to be included on par with LGBTQ2, some of whom are white, the most visible and represented portion of the qmunity.

White Heterosexual Women are the group most likely to be allied with part of PFLAG – Parents and friends of. leveraging their lesser than heterosexual male privileged, on behalf, so as each group steps up, the idea is turn around and help the next group to access rights and dignity of person.

There is no question that equitable linguistic representation demonstrates respect and tolerance for more complex gender/sexual identities. But, scrubbing language of essential gender-specific words, which work eminently well for society at large, and arguably for most women, can hardly be called tolerant or respectful.”

Nina notes: including self definition as well as determination, each to our own identifiers and labels and not sticking them on others, each to our own.

so – who is what, and who has what rights. in 2020. this is why heterosexuals are not in the qmunity of LGBTQ2, not because they are oppressed and murdered less, they are not, they are often married off to their rapists, after all, white heterosexual women were the chattle of the heterosexual men, property under the law, not named in the law as having rights; while there were laws against sexuality and passing for a gender in the terms of that centuries ago era;

with ethnicity of any person often reduced to being property rather than persons, with or without full legal rights of financial and body sovereignty.

LGBTQ2 were marginalized in that society, over time and nations.
