18 Stupid Things Lesbians Are Tired Of Hearing

18 Stupid Things Lesbians Are Tired Of Hearing

It's a tough hetero-normative world for us women loving women, and when it comes to navigating the rocky landscape, it can sometimes be really bleak. We'd all be a lot happier if we could go the rest of our lives without ever hearing these things again.

1. Which one's the guy?
Neither. That's the point.

2. Have you ever been with men?
Is that really any of your business? No. Does it matter? No. Back UP.

3. Do you hate men?
Yes, that's the perfect way to boil down my homosexuality to it's core. Smh.

4. You must have not been with the right man yet.
No, because the right "man" for me is a "woman."

5. But you're so pretty.
Yes, I know, thank you. Now get out of my face.

6. Why date girls that look like dudes when you can just date a dude?

Because she's a she, and that's what I like.

7. Don't worry, I'm totally into gay marriage.
Well, if you're going to be an ally, then it'd be nice if you could understand my sexuality isn't only about marriage.

8. "There's just no way I could go down on another woman."
Good. More for me.

9. So are you going to cut your hair?
Really? My hair length is the topic bumping through your tiny mind?

10. Does that mean you're going to stop shaving?
No, I didn't decide to become a shoeless forest gypsy that will live in a commune and swear off deodorant (although there is nothing wrong with that).

11. But you really don't seem that gay.
Oh, really I don't? That's odd because I didn't know a person's sexuality was defined by what they "seemed" to be.

12. Is this to piss off your parents?
*slow clap*

13. Oh, I love lesbians. I know one I could set you up with.
This could go one of two ways. Either you feel belittled to the idea that lesbians are attracted to all women/lesbians, or you're single, desparate and perhaps hormonal, that you feel flattered.

14. Do I have to worry about you hitting on me now?
Okay, so, we're no longer friends.

15. So then you're down for a threesome, right?
Homosexuality is not mutually exclusive with having multiple partners (although there is nothing wrong with that).

16. You should let me show you what a real man is like.
Um. No thanks.

17. *Douchey dude* Oh, I'm a lesbian too.

Mmmmmk bro. Conversation's over now.

18. One time I kissed my sorority sister at a bowling fundraiser, so I totally get it.
Yep, you totally get it.

If only everyone could just understand we're living our truths for ourselves and not for the objectification or exotification of others. We just want to be loved ya'll!
