the letter z

Can I just say

Posted in Uncategorized by z on 2010-07-16

Cislesbianism annoys me for its tendency to focus a lot on the trans male aspect of things.

So, I’ve always liked the attitude that you don’t give up the words you identify with (eg., feminism; you might have heard people giving up identifying with it because some aspects of its nature has changed by some people), you keep your terminology and rename the movements that stray. Lesbianism, by its very definition, must center and respect the interests of trans dykes as well as cis dykes. Sadly, it feels like cislesbianism is the dominant faction.
