I never read Everyday Meninism, because I don’t want my head to explode, but sometimes Cheki makes fun of their posts, and sometimes people post them on Facebook to make fun of them, so I have noticed a tendency of theirs that is starting to really piss me off. They have a tendency to claim that homosexuals are attracted to the same gender. Nope. As we always have been, homosexuals are attracted to the same sex. Sex is a biological feature of human beings that we are born with. Gender is a social construct, and generally refers to the sex stereotypes of femininity and masculinity that are imposed on females and males.
It is completely daft to claim that homosexuality means attraction to a certain set of sex stereotypes, and that it has nothing to do with genitals. I know these days everyone’s gender is supposed to be unique and special, but honestly, most of what transgenderists are promoting is ancient, tired old masculinity and femininity, not anything new. They would claim that lesbians are attracted to femininity, therefore if a male is feminine, we’ll be attracted to him. Nope. Lesbians are female humans who are attracted to other female humans. And lesbians aren’t even always attracted to femininity! We can be, but not always. Genitals are absolutely a part of sexual attraction. Just as heterosexuals are attracted to the opposite set of genitals and what they can do together, homosexuals are attracted to the same set of genitals. You know how straight dudes always talk about “getting pussy?” Yeah, they’re attracted to the genitals of the opposite sex, duh. Lesbians are in fact attracted to vulvas and that’s okay. And we don’t have to see someone’s genitals to know we are attracted to them. The thing is, it is obvious whether people are male or female no matter what clothes they’re wearing. Males and females look different, even fully dressed.
I took some time today to think about whether it is at all true that I am attracted to a gender. I thought about the people I find attractive. Number one, I have a partner, and she is butch. I’m definitely attracted to butches. She looks super hot when she’s wearing dirty coveralls and working underneath the car. She also looks really hot while operating power tools in other contexts. However, just because I find this attractive on her, doesn’t mean I find it attractive on men. I don’t give a shit about men fixing stuff or using tools.
I’m not just attracted to butches though. I mean, I find women of all sorts attractive. I have a huge thing for actress Gillian Anderson, and she’s a gorgeous, beautiful femme. So like… I guess I’m attracted to any gender? However, I’m attracted to one particular sex. That sex is female.
Same with my partner. Obviously she’s attracted to me. But her “type” is generally femmes with long curly hair, and I’m androgynous with short straight hair. (I’ll just go ahead and say it: my partner’s “type” is Helena Bonham Carter. lol ) But guess what, even if we tend to find certain styles or looks attractive, that doesn’t necessarily mean our life partner will come in that style. Our life partner will certainly come in the sex we are attracted to, though.
The trans activists who insist that people are attracted to a gender are living on a planet of their own. And I worry about young lesbians because they are being gas-lighted on a constant basis. Young women are learning in their GSAs and in their student unions that TERFs are evil and oppressive and that they must be inclusive of “women” with dicks. Young women tend to be nice to everybody because we are socialized that way, and they have not had much opportunity yet to learn just how much men hate them. I fear for them buying into this nonsense and dating trans women and being coerced into sex with their lady peen. How terrifying. Misogynist men have been trying to bed lesbians since forever and they’ve been outraged since forever that we love other women and not them. This is the same homophobic, misogynist abuse that frat boys have been displaying since always, but now they have a groovy new “queer” angle to go in at.
Female homosexuals are attracted to other females. That’s what it means to be a lesbian. Trans activists are homophobic and abusive. Don’t listen to them, young women. You are allowed to be a female attracted to females, you are allowed to say no to men of any gender, and you are not a bigot, you are a lesbian. Being a lesbian is fantastic and you don’t have to change that.
