Lesbian lesbians.

This is bananas. Completely.

Certain residents of the Greek Island Lesbos want to ban the use of the word ‘lesbian’ as a gay woman. Rather it should only be used in conjunction with being a citizen of their island.

Seriously?

Realism people, isn’t it a bit late to be making a fuss now? Maybe I’m just mean.

This is interesting though: “The term lesbian originated from a mythological goddess and poet called Sappho, who was a native of Lesbos.

Sappho expressed her love of other women in poetry written during the 7th Century BC.
