Apologies. I hoped to cite some well regarded works by lesbian authors so as to provide some insight… But I don’t think my examples really show what I thought they showed anyway. On further consideration those characters’ relationships are more nuanced. Also I was a bit drunk when I wrote that, though I still am.
ugh why am i reading these comments
first of all
”I don’t know any gay or lesbian women in my real life, that I know of, because it’s a little difficult for me to meet new people.”
that follows the “i’m posting drunk” admission
admittedly i am not unfamiliar with drunk posting but jesus
secondly from another commenter:
“It wasn’t great to be a woman. But it was pretty much completely shitty to be a man, too. In many ways, worse; at least women weren’t considered fully intelligent beings responsible for their own behavior. Men had no such recourse. Step out of line, or even don’t, and your fate was torture, beating or violent death – pretty much all the time.”
THIS IS A COMMENT ON A FEMINIST BLOG
wow and the OP’s transphobia in comment #92 right below it is amazing
feministe, this is what you are.
The really depressing thing is, this isn’t what Feministe wants to be. That is, the editors don’t really agree with any of this. They just don’t care enough to keep it away. I honestly don’t know what’s worse.
