i’m a huge fan of politically incorrect jokes. listen to this absolute classic: “abraham lincoln was never president”!
I hate it when straight girls make out to entertain the male gaze because they get to do it freely simply because they are straight. When a lesbian couple dares to show affection in public, all they get is harassment. Straights girls do it for the harassment, which makes men think it is the appropriate response to seeing two women show affection. It is not just straight men but also straight women who perpetuate the lesbophobic myth that lesbians exist to fulfill men’s fantasies.
I also hate it when straight girls kiss to make a statement “for gay rights”. This always boils down to appealing to the male gaze in order to promote your agenda; it’s another version of certain animal rights organisations’ use of degrading and objectifying female nudes, just with added lesbophobia. In fact, this angers me even more than straight girls making out for fun because the whole pretext of “supporting lesbians” is so ironic when actual lesbians suffer from being reduced to men’s sexual fantasies.
Lesbians kissing in public take the risk of receiving harassment and abuse as result of getting outed. Heterosexuals doing this are just flaunting their privilege. It is disrespectful. It trivializes lesbophobia.
It’s only okay to be a lesbian as long as you’re not one.
cool post but lets not forget that some Straight girls are not actually straight girls. while i know that some girls do this 100% for male attention, some of them may be questioning and trying to figure themselves out. so, while girls making out with other girls to turn dudes on is annoying as fuck to me as lesbian, lets try to have respect for one another when we dont know them personally and dont fully understand their situation. also, when we call out lesbophobia in straight women let’s make sure that we are also holding men accountable for their misogyny (this post attacks women for ‘appealing to the male gaze’ but says next to nothing about men and their culpability). thank you and god bless us one and all.
who fetishize lesbians are gross and awful
number one pet peeve of all academia related to literature:
- when men are characters but women are symbols
