So no matter what happens, the lesbians win! Actually, that’s not true. The Lesbians might win. What the hell am I talking about? Three Greek women who live on the island of Lesbos filed suit against the Homosexual and Lesbian Community of Greece, per the AP, claiming that its name “insults the identity” of the people of Lesbos.
Please! Even assuming the Lesbians defeat the lesbians, what about the other, um, BILLIONS OF PEOPLE who will still use the word “lesbian” as a synonym for a gay woman? What’s next, Lesbos v. Rest of World? Ladies, you can’t unring the bell. You can’t put the genie back in the bottle. (Help. Any more trite phrases to express this?)
