“What Does LGBTQ Stand For?” Your (Colorful!) LGBTQIA+ Glossary - 😡😡😡😡😡 by Chunkeeguy in LGBDropTheT

While nonbinary is sometimes abbreviated as NB, that abbreviation was in actuality coined by Black activists to refer to non-Black — or “NB” — people of color when discussing their experiences of racism. Rather than co-opting this term, ENBY is seen by many as the better acronym choice.

Oh, but they can co-opt woman, lesbian, and any other letter convenient to them? The double standards, I swear.

I'm sick of sapphic rep being called "LGBTQAJHSHZHZH+" rep by Mermer in LGBDropTheT

[–]CatsOrGoHome 10 insightful - 1 fun10 insightful - 0 fun11 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Facts. The word sapphic being used instead of lesbian makes me mad just as much as lgbtq+. People should just say it is either lesbian or bisexual rep when it is to make it easier for those particular communities to find but they don't want us to since they want to be "inclusive" by making it hard for us and therefore being the opposite of what they claim to be.

Why can’t lesbian just be female homosexual? by CuntWorshiper in Lesbians

[–]CatsOrGoHome 12 insightful - 1 fun12 insightful - 0 fun13 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

My annoyance is that, even in so called “lesbian spaces” I have to be thinking of who is actually lesbian and who is not because everyone else already went so far at turning ‘lesbian’ into political statement, hobby, fetish, moral choice, trauma cope, sexy attention magnet or whatever. It seems lesbianism is everything but female homosexuality. Lesbians are not only rare on “open world” they are also rare on “lesbian spaces”, that’s the annoying depressing thing. But of course, it’s too politically incorrect so you to ever say it out loud.

This right here and the rest of what you said have summarized what I feel too. People here are assuming you are attacking rape victims when you are criticizing the fact a lot of "lesbians" just have a problem with men due to their trauma. I know this is a general internet problem, but I wish people here would get some basic reading comprehension. If you are an actual lesbian, you would immediately understand what she is trying to say.

The funny part of that thread is that they focus on the most tiny, obscure, crazy people that even we don't agree with, a minority among us, but when we question them on what insane things they say, a majority among them, they say that is just a few people. They always accuse us of the things they do.

Honestly, between the mods deleting things that either shouldn't have been or just things they disagree with and the people here that constantly fight over petty reasons are why this place is dead. It is a very hostile place and one of the reasons I've stopped posting. Why can't everyone here just get along and act like adults?

It always feels weird in any lesbian space other than this one. You will usually see either the stereotypical hyper sexualized stuff straight men like or you will see a completely desexualized depiction of two women together that looks more like a friendship than a relationship. It is depressing.

I feel you. I roll my eyes at most of the things the community applauds for representation. I never like the ones they like. She-ra is one I do because I can easily look passed the queer stuff with the gc perspective.

I wish we could be depicted as normal people under this current climate. Recently, I've started to watch one show I watched when I was little called Stargate Universe. One of the characters was a lesbian and I think this was the first show I ever saw with lesbians in it. It wasn't central to her character and she was just like everyone else in the show. Can we please get back to being seen as that and not the empty virtue signaling the queers like?

I feel you. When I peaked I basically peaked lgbt. I was so upset by the amount of brainwashing I had been exposed to and disappointed in myself for retweeting harmful things about my own community. The amount of gaslighting we are treated with is unbelievable. Every single letter and their mother hates lesbians with so much passion and vitriol, that it feels like getting hit by a car when you realize. Lesbians are constantly fed that everything is unicorns and rainbows in our community by people pretending to be us, that lesbians think it is and can't believe when it is not so and wake up to the abuse we receive.

Yikes at that entire thread. While some had some self-awareness, they'd then start to be lesbophobic. :/ If you only are ranting about your hate for men and not your love of women, lesbians are going to pick that up and run for the hills. We avoid those bisexuals like the plague, not just the ones who cheat.

Also, lol when she admitted she'd vet bi women for the same reasons we do. That is the real reason bisexuals complain when we don't date them, though most would never say it.

I knew I liked girls as far back as my earliest memories when I thought Emma Watson and a girl in kindergarten were pretty. Even though I knew 100 percent I was only into girls, I called myself bisexual because of pressure and wanted to believe I might eventually find a guy cute. I never did and gave up that crazy pipe dream and started to embrace calling myself a lesbian in 8th grade.
