Lesbian Discrimination
Just wanna rant a minute about a lesbian friend of mine who I took out to eat at TGIFridays with some other friends of mine. As we are sitting at the table as she was talking about her fiance, we heard a lil snicker fron the booth behind us. We were talking with low voices, until we relized they were snickering at my friend. The reason for that was is this, they were laughing not because she was a lesbian, but she was not a what they call, a PORN STAR LESBIAN. Now She and myself will admit, you won't see her on Playboy, FHM, Cosmopolitan, etc. She doesn't have the an erotic voice that would turn on any man since she has a loud voice with a slight southern twang, she doesn't have long legs since she is 5'3, etc. I myself am getting sick and tired of guys thinking the only good lesbians are the porn star hot lesbians. These people think with only their dicks instead of their hearts

1. Ignore the ignorant children when you can.
I'm sorry that your friend had to deal with that. It's mean and humiliating to be treated like that. But there is no point picking unnecessary fights. We have more than enough necessary ones.
:(

2. These people are flakes.
Ignore them. There are more than enough decent people in the world who deserve your attention. These characters don't.

4. Actually
Although she hates it, she takes it in stride. At least they just didn't dis her sexuality though. Too many guys expect that in order to be a good lesbian, you have to have the looks to see through that. It pisses me off though.

3. Just remember...
The bigger the mouth, the smaller the genitals...

(And, look on the bright side, if those idiots eat at TGIFriday's on a regular basis, their probably six months away from their first coronaries.)

In other words, I'm sorry your friend had to go through that.

9. A lot of straight men don't have a problem with gays
as long as they are attractive women in a porn.

10. Even Adrianne Curry of My Fair Brady agrees
Bisexuals women have it worse, if they decide to go a straight relationship, they are afraid if thier bf/fiances find out of their sexuality, then their significant others expect much much more sexually then they can give them.

12. That girl is the most classless idiot on earth
after GWB, of course.

i give that mess of a marriage ten minutes.

Interesting that she said something semi-intelligent though, rather than "Wanna touch my vagina?" She is trash.

14. She was talking about it on the radio.
The story she told was when she had her only threesome, and she HATED it.

11. "Guys" don't think that, some people do.
The more heterosexual a guy is, the less attractive anyone who resembles a guy is to them.

People who make fun of other people in public suck, whoever their target, but I'm guilty myself. I like to point at people in traffic who have W bumperstickers and declare loudly how fucking stupid they must be to openly support the fucking traitor. It could be the parents' car, or a friend's, I don't know.

Neither dicks nor hearts think, and I don't mean to just be literal here. Emotional responses, no matter what kind, are not logical. They are reactive, impulsive. It's possible the guys you are referring to above are actually gay-friendly and have a lesbian sister who resembles your friend, and your friend was reminding them of something stupid their sister said or did. Maybe not, I don't know, but you can't know for sure, either. But that's logic. Your reaction to their reaction, like theirs before yours, is emotional.

I agree that people need to get the fuck over homosexuality already, though. It's not going away.

16. Stereotypes are an unfortunate downside to the way humans think.
Typically, we categorize everything and assign it a label. Like big corporate music stores. As space is limited, the creation of new sections is frowned upon unless absolutely necessary, so the attempt is made to fit new things into an existing category, even if it doesn't really fit well.

15. Its the ironic idea of lesbians existing to stimulate men.
Real lesbians don't bother. Personally I would be happy if all lesbians were unattractive to me since I can't have them anyway.

17. my girlfriend and I are both butch
Butch enough that we've had stupid boys yell 'Faggots!' at us before. :D Anyway, I like to think that she and I do our part for the good of the world by ruining straight men's conception of 'lesbians as fantasy fodder' everytime we go out in public.

20. LOL - we joke that if we did it we'd have a corner on the market
Since it doesn't exist! Of course, I don't know if it'd be profitable or not... or if my mother would ever forgive me if she found out! :D
