7 Lesbian Stereotypes That Are Actually Spot-On

They get a bad rap, but some stereotypes are awesome.

For example, I’m British, and the minute someone hears my accent (after they’ve asked if I’ve met Prince William. Yes, I have) they offer me a cup of tea. Stereotype win. So, if someone wants to offer me a lesbian the minute they find out I’m gay, who am I to turn them down?

Stereotypes aren’t meant to imply that every member of a community/culture has a certain trait. It’s about a majority having it. So instead of getting insulted, here are some lesbian stereotypes that we should totally be embracing…

1. We “Recruit” Straight Women

No we don’t. We just bring closeted women out of their shell. And the more of us out the better, so we aren’t apologizing for this. It’s like a lesbian public service.

2. We’re All Super Good At Sportssoccer

For those of us that DO play sports, this stereotype rocks. See a gay girl geared up to kick your ass and you’re going to get psyched out. That’s tactics right there.

3. We All Have Gay Wear Gamecara fashion

Whether you’re androgynous, gay glam or going full-on femme, you have to admit gay girls just dress better. I mean we were wearing the “boyfriend blazer” long before straight girls adopted it and don’t get us started on plaid shirts. You’re welcome, fashion.

4. Queer Girls Love Threesomesgreys grind

Yes. But not the kind you’re thinking of… News flash: men are not required for three-way-fun.

5. We All Heart Tegan and Sarah And Have Seen Every Episode Of The L Word and OITNBshane l word yeah

Well, haven’t we? I mean that’s just good time management.

6. No Gay Women Wear Brasnatalie dormer

If you’ve watched The L Word you’ll have noticed there’s a noteable absence of bras. I, for one, would like to encourage more of this underwear shruggery. You know, for comfort, mainly.

7. We All Own Catscatwink

If we don’t, we should. I mean who hates kittens? Really?

So let’s not be so quick to fight off certain stereotypes, eh? Some of them really are in our favor.
