If we had a nickel for every time we’ve heard a variation the phrase “used to be a Lesbian” or “former Lesbian”, Dirt and I could quit our day jobs.
Just think about it, there are tons of examples in everyday life, in TV shows, in movies, in books (etc.) where an alleged “
Lesbian” ends up with a man. (“Alleged” is the key word here, obviously).
Let’s review just a few examples of (so-called) “
1). Susan Ross, George Costanza’s ill-fated fiance on Seinfeld: When George learned that his ex-girlfriend, Susan, was dating a woman named Mona, he made a joke that he had “turned her Lesbian”. Then (of course, predictably) Susan and George reunited. To make matters even worse, Mona fell for Kramer, even though the character had allegedly never expressed interest in men before. (Offensive).
2). Orange is the New Black’s Piper Chapman: In the Season 1 official trailer, at approximately .36-.37 seconds, Piper’s mom asks “You were a lesbian?” and Piper (sitting with her MALE fiance) replies “At the time”. (Ugh).
3). The turd from my last post. (Yuck).
4). Susie Bright. (Barf).
5). JoAnn Loulan. (Loathsome).
6). Every Straightbian who has allegedly eschewed “
Lesbianism” to embrace Christianity, such as Turd #3, above, as well as others of her ignorant ilk, like Rosario Butterfield. (Repugnant).
A couple quick Google searches for “used to be a lesbian” and “former lesbian” showed that there are many, many, MANY hits:
The problem is: There is no such thing. You are being lied to. These people are insulting your intelligence.
And: not only is this pervasive lie offensive to, and erasing of, real Lesbians…but it is also downright dangerous because it gives the VERY false idea that being a Lesbian is just a choice which (POOF!!) magically can be changed on a mere whim, the whiff of a penis, and/or the discovery of a deity.
Once again, behavior does not equal orientation. Any woman can enter into a same-sex relationship (or just have sex with another woman), BUT any woman cannot magically become a Lesbian. It doesn’t matter whether a relationship between a straight woman and another woman lasts 50 minutes or 50 years, a straight woman will never be a Lesbian, and a Lesbian can never be a straight woman.
The truth actually stunningly simple: Whenever you hear that somebody “used to be a Lesbian” or is a “former Lesbian”, you know you are dealing with total bullshit. You’ll know that the very special snowflake somebody in question is a Straightbian. Bottom Line: This person never was a Lesbian to begin with.
