Just curious, do gay men complain that bi men are “appropriating” terms like bear and twink like lesbians complain about bi women “appropriating” terms like butch, dyke, and femme?
This post is utter trash
Why do you not get lesbophobia.
'Dyke' isn't your word wtf
The power dynamic between gay men and bi men is different. They’re all men that are sexually available to men.
Idk this whole post reeks of misunderstanding and lesbophobia.
Femme was coined by a lesbian who used it to describe her bisexual girlfriends. When the word homosexual came about, it was used to describe anyone who partook in same-gender sex/romance, no matter orientation, so these terms are used for all queer women (a-little-bi-furious, bidyke, and bisexual-books have entire posts on this, sources included). Stop claiming words used for queer women as only for lesbians jfc Also it’s really gross that you say gay and bi men are “sexually available” to men no one is just automatically sexually available to anyone???? Asserting the right to reclaim slurs that apply to me isn’t lesbophobia.
In fact, you can turn this in another direction: the Pride march was created by a bisexual woman (x), so are gays and lesbians appropriating Pride from bisexuals?
Get your head out of your ass, thanks. ｡◕‿◕｡
ok but thing is it doesn't really matter what kind of profound contemplation you went through over the use of the term, d*ke isn't for us it's for lesbians. its not for queer women in general when /they've/ been the target. it's not about being a gatekeeper into /queer spaces/ its about groups having their own spaces within a community. what you're doing is invasive to others. does trying justifying your use of the term overrule what the people who've had it targeted against them have to say?
So, apparently I’ve never written this sentence clearly, so here goes:
"Dyke" has never been exclusively used against lesbians. It is and has been routinely used against bi women because - GET THIS - you can’t tell apart between lesbians and bi women unless you ask them how they identify.
NOTE: any further ask about this will be deleted. Kthx.
My manager at work has referred to me as a dyke half a dozen times and he knows i am bisexual.
So, I was outed (as bisexual, which for some reason was worse than being gay when i was in middle school.) in the 7th grade while I was in Spanish class and literally the first thing that happened was some kid yelling “dyke” and throwing something at me.
Some time later that year, I was doing an improv exercise in my theater class and the same thing happened.
I have lost count of how many times I’ve been called a dyke since then, and I have never identified, came out as, or been outed as a lesbian.
And much solidarity.
Israel is the problem. Hamas doesn’t occupy land, steal water, ethnically cleanse Israelis & bulldoze their homes. The only people ever “driven into the sea” were Palestinians. Attempts to wipe Palestine off the map continue. How did so many Palestinians end up in Gaza? Mass ethnic cleansing. The refugees aren’t the obstacle to peace, the occupier is.
Btw, this is not hyperbole. We were LITERALLY driven into the sea.
4chan is targeting tags and posting incredibly violent and triggering material within them. DO NOT ACCESS THE ABOVE TAGS.
I noticed that a lot of the PSA’s were images without transcripts, and there are several posts with different tags to look out for.
This is a compilation of those tags, in a text format for anyone who has issues with reading images.
Please spread around in the interests of accessibility, especially since the ableism tags are being targeted as well.
Thank you, and stay safe.(via hollowedskin)
