It's actually the 27th here today (happy birthday to my best friend), but most of my followers are overseas so I get away with posting a day late.
Happy Lesbian Visibility Day to all of the homosexual women around the globe!
You are so under-appreciated and I just want you to know how beautiful and valid all of you are.
Society seems to only accept feminine lesbians, but lesbianism is extremely diverse. Men only seem to accept feminine lesbians simply because they think being a lesbian is all just a bit of fun. They don't actually think women love women. They just want to watch two girls that they find attractive making out. Yet as much as they only want to accept our fem girls, they also madly tell those girls that they can "turn them straight."
Women love women naturally, and no man will ever change that. Being a lesbian isn't for fun and attention, it's a part of who some girls are, they were born this way.
Gay women experience a lot of hate and assault — if they're feminine people may also tell them that they're just confused and that they're "too pretty to be lesbian." But you have no right to say such things.
Gay women who are masculine have to face the expectations of heteronormative people, expecting them to only be attracted to "girls who actually look like girls".
Trans lesbians go unnoticed on a day-to-day basis with people telling them that they're just "perverted men." But you're 100% valid women, and you're 100% valid lesbians.
Gay women experience lots of sexual assault and harassment by men who treat them, their sexualities and relationships as sexual objects and fetishes.
We need to end the hate towards lesbians. End the fear of masculine lesbians. End the sexual assault against feminine lesbians. End the murder towards trans lesbians. End the hate crimes against our beautiful gay women — even in their own community.
We need more sex education about homosexuality for kids, we need more accurate lesbian representation in the media and movies, we need to teach more education on LGBT history to kids, and we need more awareness on what lesbians have faced and are still dealing with to this day in society.
Love is love
