BuzzFeed Article Suggesting Lesbianism May Die Out Triggers Anger And Lesbian-splaining

A BuzzFeed article exploring the gender revolution — and whether or not lesbians will survive it — appears to be all the rage right now, literally. 

The article, aptly titled “Will lesbians survive the gender revolution?” has provoked many angry responses and jargon-laden explanations for why it’s the worst thing ever. 

Writer Shannon Keating begins the piece reflecting on “The Future Is Female” — the slogan popularized by Hillary Clinton not along ago, or so most people think. 

In reality, shares one of Keating’s interview subjects who apparently created the phrase, it stems from a “lesbianism separatist movement.”

And so begins the lamenting of the “diffusing” of lesbian culture. 

Then Keating explores the rise in “non-binary” genders and how that might affect lesbianism. 

Against the increasingly colorful backdrop of gender diversity, a binary label like “gay” or “lesbian” starts to feel somewhat stale and stodgy.

She goes even deeper, questioning whether lesbians are actually harming progress for trans individuals, simply by being lesbians. 

When there are so many genders out there, is it close-minded — or worse, harmful and exclusionary — if you identify with a label that implies you’re only attracted to one?

Of course, none of this sits very well with commenters on BuzzFeed LGBT’s Facebook page, who quickly blasted it. 

“This makes me angry,” wrote Alice Nunk Swanton. “I am a woman and I’m a lesbian. I’m only sexually attracted to cis women. Too many people have tried to tell me that I’m not a true lesbian therefore… That is horseshit.”

“This is a mess,” wrote James Gamble. “Trans women can be lesbians the identity survives fine you just can’t police everyone’s personal definition of their own orientation.”

“I’m a lesbian,” declared Amberlynn Lewis. “Trans women are women and I love them. Cis women are women and I love them. Once in a blue moon I love some fem non binary people as well. I’m still a lesbian. It’s not that difficult.”

“I’m a trans lesbian,” insisted Lisa Kreut. 

“Some lesbians won’t want to be with me because of that. That’s fine. Nobody owes me their attraction. They do owe me the basic respect of not voicing their dislike of me because of factors beyond my control though. It wouldn’t be cool with any other minority group, it’s not okay with trans women.”

“Historical erasure of lesbians is already a problem,” said Maggie Grace. “I’m so delighted BuzzFeed is so eager to continue to perpetuate this and undermine an entire community’s identity. It’s those gay women who have a problematic community!! Certainly not those perfect gay men! Thanks BuzzFeed.”

    Nothing like watching a bunch of people race to the bottom of the bucket of crazy and argue about who got there first….

      It’s pretty sad when they never knew who they were in the first place and still try and find their identity.

    This kind of thing is always going to happen to those who live in a subjective world. Not all things can be true at once. When people think that anything they believe is true is true there will always come a time when they run broadside of each other.

    Can you imagine the calamity of ending lesbians will do to the porn industry.

        Yeah, actual Lesbians are too unattractive to be in porn. Those are straight girls earning their pay.

    When I was in college back in the 1990s a standard joke among straight males was “I’m a lesbian trapped in a man’s body”. I guess we were really ahead of the curve back then

    Same goes for us “normies,” you hypocritical twits. Check your privilege.

    So crowing about the browning of American and diffusion of white people as the majority is to be celebrated, but the idea of lesbians who can’t reproduce naturally as partnered pairs is inflammatory. Got it.

    Cat fight!

    These people all have serious issues. They argue who has the right to the most screwed up identity and sexually attraction.

    What the heII is a “cis women”? I looked it up and I still don’t get it. OOOOO! Why does gender have to be so confusing now a days?? I liked it better back in the day when you have either a dick or a vagina…not a “somewhere in between”. SHEEESH!

      That day is still now. The big thing that has changed is instead of giving mentally and emotionally disturbed people professional care and treatment, leftist society has decided to play their silly games. We encourage confused people to believe in any level of crazy they so desire. Fact of the matter is you can think you’re female and you can act, dress, walk and talk like you’re female, you can pretend and lie and believe that you’re female, you can even squat to pee but the reality is that pesky Y-chromosome will not be denied. No amount of make-believe is going to change the facts but we (society as a whole) will allow you to be as crazy as you choose to be. Same for women who identify as men, just reverse all the pronouns and it’s the same… except for the squatting to pee thing. Women who believe they are really men will have a little difficulty standing to pee. You can do it but your shoes won’t fare so well and you will start to smell foul. When did we decide it was better to humor sick people instead of help them?

      I was in the same boat. The best I can figure is that a cis woman is a woman who was born with “woman parts” and actually identifies as a woman… Strange these days, but they still exist… 🙂

    “They do owe me the basic respect of not voicing their dislike of me because of factors beyond my control though. It wouldn’t be cool with any other minority group, it’s not okay with trans women.” so you shouldn’t voice your dislike for me because i’m white either, right?

    Ironic isn’t it how they said the same exact thing about straight people but when it’s done to them, they huff and puff and attempt to blow the house down!! ah the typical hypocritical LGBT community! I believe that you silly lezzies is called KARMA!!

    They get *paid* by generating clicks ‘n eyeballs.
    They have chosen to do this by tapping into Controversy, Outrage, Anger, Prurient Interest, and to a somewhat lesser extent than the rest of the media, Bloody Gore.

    They make big bank by getting you to click on whatever wild, spun up thing that they can use to get you all worked up.

    A lesbian only attracted to straight women? Sounds like the definition of “Unrequited Love”.

    • Starstorm

      February 14, 2017 at 2:06 pm

      No, a lesbian only attracted to women that were born female. They aren’t attracted to trans-women.

        Shouldn’t make a difference unless they’re sexist.

        well as a gay im not attracted to trans-men, I prefer the authenticy of the male gender than a fabricated one, I respect those who transsexualize their bodies as for their own wellfare but for me even if you change your gender some things will never be like it should be, but im sure there are gays who might love transmens.

        • Starstorm

          Indeed. It is all preference. I find that there’s nothing wrong with your line of thinking, as that is my preference too, though I’m heterosexual and I’m only attracted to those born male and identify as male. I think we should just leave each other alone with our preferences, as long as it is not hurting someone else.

            exactly I was just saying that being gay doesnt mean that he have to like trans, gay and trans are two things completly different.

    Gender and actual gender based expression is biology in action. Frankly, the line of thought occurring with the left today has gone out of the building, and nothing they say has any bearing on anything but the weird inside themselves.

    mind-numbing……all of this bs is mind numbing… did our society become so disgusting and ignorant to science. you can’t change your biology no matter how much you scream and complain- your feelings don’t matter and no I will not play pretend with you as you dress up like the opposite of what you were born and insist that I refer to you in the pronoun you think you get to choose. “transgender” is a mental condition that needs professional help, not encouragement.

    Everybody knows lesbianism isn’t real anyway. It’s just something you see in straight porno films as an interlude while the male actors rest between takes.

    Lesbian vs Trans Women

    So a fat blue-haired woman will be arguing with a dude wearing a wig?
