10 Things You Should Never Say to a Lesbian

10 Things You Should Never Say to a Lesbian

10. “All lesbians just want to be men.”

No, we don’t. We are women who like to be with women. Who said anything about men? So guys have penises, so what? It’s not like I can’t walk six blocks and buy one of my own. Plus, I don’t have to worry about being too small or any other “sexual dysfunctions” of which many men are concerned. If anything, men want to be lesbians.

9. “I am totally cool with lesbians, I just think two guys hooking up is gross”

Do you really think that makes us feel good to hear that? While many lesbians might also be less than excited about two men hooking up, we are still a part of the gay community. We don’t care about your approval, and you are not any less homophobic just because you like the idea of two women together. You know what I think is gross? Your impudence and stupidity.

8. "You’re too pretty and feminine to be a lesbian’

If you think all lesbians have crew cuts and wear flannel shirts and combat boots, then you have obviously had your eyes closed for pretty much your whole life. If you think all lesbians are ugly women who just can’t get a man, then you are an idiot. Lesbians come in all types, shapes, hairstyles, clothing, sizes, hot and not, fat and skinny, girly and not so girly. Don’t say stupid things like that—women are never too pretty and feminine to be lesbians … I bet you a hundred bucks my girlfriend is hotter than yours.
