long post, lesbian discourse
hhhhhhh ok a thing i saw elsewhere that i wanna talk about: a lesbian, today, means someone not attracted to men. im not talking historically bc like ik that it used to be the only term for anyone who was attracted to women but now we made more words for attraction bc we realized they were needed and that these ppls experiences are not all the same. so we developed terms like bisexual for ppl who are attracted to everyone and ppl who arent attracted to men kept the lesbian label. there is no new label for ppl who arent attracted to men. the only one we have is lesbian and having a label for that experience and attraction is v important. i understand that bi women and lesbians share a lot of experiences and i love my bi sisters but there are differences. it makes me scared when i see posts encouraging bi women to call themselves lesbians bc i feel its not only invalidates their own identity but it also seems v close to the things ppl say in order to justify doing terrible things to lesbians (lesbians can be attracted to men)
