Lesbian Persuasion

By | June 8, 2008

There is a lot of coverage on the BBC News regarding the Greek Island of Lesbos and the fact they want to challenge the gay movement by objecting the term “Lesbian”. Although it is the homeland of Sappho one of the most renowned female poets of antiquity, born between 630 and 612BC.

I really don’t know what all the fuss is about, especially as the televised objectors were all male! Doh!

One thing that did occur to me was where are all the good looking lesbians? The BBC had found the most masculine, tugs they could find to interview to uphold the lesbian side of the argument.

Being a bisexual who grew up with a lesbian best friend I have to ask this question because almost every time something is televised relating to lesbians they seem to find the most butch looking women out there.

And I know there are some really attractive lesbian girls, I’m not saying stunning but they do look like women. This kind of coverage almost makes me feel like they are portraying lesbians as making their sexuality choice based on lack of male attention.

What do you think?
