STRAIGHTBIANS in “Lesbian” Films

Warning: If you are a lesbian, you may need to remove your eyeballs and scrub them with soap after seeing some of these pics.

The dirt from dirt

This short list of STRAIGHTBIANS in purported Lesbian films is a brief example of how STRAIGHTBIANS use/abuse and damage Lesbians, in film and in life. It is NOWHERE near the LONG list of STRAIGHTBIANS in film which date back to the beginning of film making.

  1. Let’s not forget another Gina Gershon edgy movie *puke. “Prey for rock and roll.” It started out with some promise but ended like a flower wilting in the heat.

  2. All Over Me actually had a good message, I think. The main girl gets over her dead-end crush on her straight friend, and does the right thing by reporting the straight friend’s boyfriend to the police.
    However, on reflection I notice that a lot of the films I unthinkingly accepted as films about lesbians are actually about straightbians. And I used to wonder why I couldn’t identify with most of them.
    A lot of them seem to suggest that a woman’s sexuality can suddenly change, or is fluid, or a matter of “falling in love regardless of gender”. Who benefits from this message? Why are these the stories that get told? Is it because they have more “mainstream”/straight appeal? Because straightbians have more access to money and visibility?

    • Yes, exactly! The message of many films seems to be that our sexuality can suddenly change (and even worse, in many cases in the movies, it usually changes so a man can win in the end)!

      I think this sort of crap has flourished for a number of reasons: Like you said: “straight” appeal; and Straightbians (and, often, the men who bankroll them) have more access to money and visibility.

      Also, I think society in general is stunningly (and sneakily) lesbophobic that they sometimes seem so ready to “accept” us…but only under their false idea of what we “should be”.

      Plus, many lesbians have bought into the false myth that any woman can be a lesbian, so perhaps many don’t even recognize that we are being insulted.

      Additionally, lesbians are so starved for any scrap of recognizing ourselves in movies, books, TV, etc. that we will willingly gobble up whatever meager or offensive portion is thrown our way just for the fleeting (and fake) sense of belonging.
