My good friend Allison Bailey said the word lesbian is taken. The word is taken by us. I'm going to speak for millions of lesbians around the world. We love other women. We will not have that stolen from us.
There have always been men who say feel they're a lesbian tee hee hee. Always jocular. Lesbians often a laughing stock. We will not be. We will not be erased and no man with a penis will tell us he's a lesbian because he feels is.
