I hate the size of men's forearms? Even on the scrawniest, most malnourished-looking 5'5" dudes, they're just so big and wrong looking, even when they're not grossly veiny.

I've been here since like the beginning I guess, but I've never posted and don't comment a lot... because sometimes I'm too lazy I guess, or have nothing to really say... also I'm always glad to see a new post here, but at the same time posts about, say, topics like people who insist lesbians can like dick, or whatever can be tiring like y'know seen it a million times before.

If this is just four people on Twitter, then I'm thankful I guess, because yeah this pretty gross. I hate how they stole "lesbian not queer" to make this line. It's just like how trans people stole Black Lives Matter and all those other famous slogans to be about the T.

I don't really agree with everything you said, but I definitely agree on the second point and I'm surprised more people don't? I'm not Greek, I've never even been there. How is it my word rather than theirs, just because some woman a really long time ago also happened to be attracted to women? It's hard to tell how I would feel about "lesbian" without the porn association and the current misuse, but really I wouldn't want to call myself Shibdenian or Llangollen either.

I wasn't interested in guys and they weren't interested in me... there were a couple of times (in elementary/junior high) I picked out some guy, in my head, who I thought wasn't totally obnoxious or disgusting to try and convince myself that he wasn't so bad (but I'd never tell anyone) and that maybe I could have a crush on him, but obviously it doesn't work like that, and the first time I had a real crush on a girl (ninth grade), I realised how stupid and pointless it had been to try and force myself to believe some guy was cute, that liking someone isn't just thinking "oh you're not so bad", and that I was 100% gay and definitely not bi.

Also before getting feelings for my first crush, I definitely wanted to believe to that men as beautiful as (super feminine) manga boys existed... .Hack Legend of the Twilight Bracelet's Reki and Shugo were so cute to me, lol. Or CLAMP boys... Kamui is the prettiest noodle person.

Anti-Master Doc document circulating on social media, comphet-supporting "lesbians" are losing their minds by [deleted] in Lesbians

[–]33799 8 insightful - 6 fun8 insightful - 5 fun9 insightful - 6 fun -  (0 children)

Hadn't really heard of this master doc before the recent LBL screenshots posted here... kinda shocking that it's such a big thing to some people, and that they would harass the author of this so much. I've never read the original but it doesn't seem like a very good thing, but neither does this rebuttal doc. I'm probably not going to end up finishing reading it, just kinda skimming at this point.

Also, the author is bisexual, but she also wrote "I don’t want to be accused of ‘hating lesbians’ when I am one" like uh what?????

And I thought this bit was stupid: "The bi and questioning and trans and fluid kids – kids who are already considered queerer by society than the average Ellen and Neil’s these days" — Ah yes, being OSA and SSA is more gay than being gay. Yes, not knowing if you're gay is more gay than being gay. Deciding you're special because you like both sweatpants and performing feminity is truly the gayest. Heterosexual T people who fetishize gay people are definitely the most gay.

25 and Canadian. I honestly don't know if my family knows! My sister's boyfriend knows (because he tried to introduce to me to his friend), so she probably knows? Dunno. And at least one of my parents packed up all the books I had in my room — it's not like I own any 50s pulp novels, but there were a few books with "lesbian" in their title or subtitle. But maybe that's not enough, IDK.

Dating profile details that immediately make you swipe left by lovelyspearmint in Lesbians

I hate when women have something in their profiles that makes it seem like they were mainly/only thinking about men reading their profile when they wrote their description... you know what I mean?

Honestly there's way too many for me! I feel like I'm way too picky, even though it's not like I have high standards. Or maybe I do? I hate seeing really obvious makeup (would prefer someone who never wears any at all, but the clown red lips and big fake eyeliner "eyelashes" are so ugly to me, but then there's also the ones with black lipstick or crazy eyeshadow, ugh). Pics where someone has a bunch of friends make me feel kinda shitty about myself like wow congrats on being normal and having friends, cause I sure don't. I don't like seeing weed stuff since I don't do it, I hate seeing virtue signally-stuff, hate seeing q***r/nb/poly, and I'm really not into long hair. Or facial piercings or massive tats. So basically I hardly ever like anyone and it sucks.

I'm Canadian, for reference, and I'm all over the place. I voted for JT in 2014 or whatever, then I started to change my mind when I realised he really didn't care about the environment. The CPC isn't any better on that front, but at least they don't pretend to be? And I also dislike him because I'm pro-gun, so there's two reasons from totally opposite sides. And there's Bill C-16 (the gender identity bill), where it's like... most of the people who are against it probably aren't really against it for the same reasons I am, but it's still a thing I dislike JT for. But I can't stand the religious side of the conservatives, which they probably almost all have, but at least some are more quiet about it than others — I'd never vote for someone like Leslyn Lewis who wants to take away abortion rights or gay marriage (and I don't think she likes firearms either). I do have some other right leaning opinions, they feel kinda asshole-ish to admit, but I don't think UBI (and the associated money-printing) would be helpful, I think having a low population is good, and I think our military spending is too low and that they'll probably have a lot more disaster relief tasks in the future... sandbags aren't expensive, but...

Imagine being this wrong. Supporting trans IS homophobia and misogyny. But then they follow with "You cannot profess to love queer and trans people and then demean us in the same breath." because the QT is all that really matters, isn't it?

People shouldn't show kids the Jazz book without informing them of the reality of Jazz today but that wouldn't be appropriate or something they could understand... hmm... I find it interesting how the OP claimed they showed their kid things about how it's ok to be a boy and like dresses and unicorns or whatever and yet the kid still decides to want to be a girl... but maybe it's fake like jjdub7 said.

I'm slightly surprised that reading these hurt me as much as the anti-lesbian ones did. I always saw myself as someone who wasn't bothered by just words, but to see such homophobia over and over again, posted by people who basically took over our movement, really does hurt.

I mean, if a woman is legit bisexual and chooses to be febfem, I have no problem with that. I'd see that as a good thing and be able to trust her more than a regular bisexual. I'd also see it as a sign of her being someone who doesn't believe in gender b/s, although I guess it's not a guarantee. But it doesn't belong in the same category as political lesbianism.

I guess the post is weird though, since this woman is married and doesn't have any problems with her current husband, so like what's the point of even posting about it?

What was your first serious crush? by VioletRemi in Lesbians

[–]33799 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

In junior high, my best friend since primary became friends with this girl who had gone to a different elementary school. At first, I hated her and didn't want her to steal my friend and hoped she would just disappear eventually, but she didn't. Over the three years of junior high, I went from hating her, to kinda liking her, to realising, oh shit, this is what it feels like to be totally in love, wow, I'll never feel this way about a guy... because I had always forced myself to think "oh he's not terrible, he's okay I guess" about random guys, and then I realised that liking someone was sooooo not thinking that someone was "okay" and that I definitely wasn't bi.

She was (well, is) tall, very androgynous, definitely not traditionally attractive or even queer/alt attractive, and nothing like the kind of girl teenage me expected to be attracted to. Never told her. I feel so weird about how I regret not telling her, when it was so long ago. And women who look like her are basically non-existent, even if you include NB krazy kweerz.

Mainly just shorts and t-shirts in summer, with the occasional long skirt. I run, and I'll wear a lot of race t-shirts even if I'm not working out. When it cools down a bit, I'll wear my old lady button up dress shirts (vintage, synthetic fabric, usually with some flowery embroidery). In fall and winter, obligatory plaid shirts, tacky vintage sweaters (again, often flowery), and I've got a thing for kilts.
