Just a little bit of lesbian knowledge!
Myth. We never have to go shopping because share clothes!
Fact. This may be true for some, but the majority of women in lesbian relationships tend to be very different. Unique personalities taste in clothing leave little room for sharing. Not to mention body type. Women come in all shapes and sizes very rarely are two women exactly the same and have the ability to exchange (or steal) clothes with their partner.
Myth. One partner is ai???the man.ai???
Fact. Womenai??i?? WE ARE BOTH WOMEN! The whole point of being in a lesbian relationship is because we are attracted to women. Some women may be more masculine or tend to be more dominate but that in no way makes them ai???the manai??? in the relationship. I have known some pretty butch ladies who have the most tender of hearts and actually prefer their partners to be more dominant than them. Each relationship is different and each woman is different but we are all womenai??i?? not men.
Myth. Scissoring is a thing.
Fact. Really? Yeah itai??i??s a thing on porn! Scissoring has been on an episode South Park, Orange is the New Black, and we all make jokes about it but come on! First of all it is completely awkward and very rarely is it pleasurable if at all. Sex is a very personal matter between two people of any gender and when it comes to women the same thing can be said. BUT ai???scissoringai??? is not the go-to sex act of women in same sex relationship. This is a fabricated idea made up by some man with a pretty squirrely imagination. Porn can keep scissoring.
Myth. All lesbians know each other.
Fact. No. Do all straight people know each other? There is not some giant rolodex of every lesbian everywhere. So no we donai??i??t know ai???Karen in New Yorkai??? and I probably didnai??i??t meet your cousin when I was in Mexico.
Myth. Lesbians are vegetarians.
Fact. This is just silly. No, not all lesbians are vegetarians, but some are. There are also vegetarian straight people; trans people and sometimes even asexual people are vegetarians. Sexual orientation has nothing to do with food preference. Come on, someone make a ai???vag-etarianai??? joke!
Myth. Lesbians are out to convert straight women.
Fact. While it is true some lesbians (I wont say names!) have an affinity for falling in love with straight women, not all lesbians have their sights set on hetero females.
Myth. Lesbians are man haters.
Fact. Some women are friends with women; some women are friends with men. Just because a woman is romantically interested in other females does not automatically mean she hates men. Men just have an extra part that we are not attracted to. Men also donai??i??t have boobs. So there is that.
Myth. You can only be a lesbian if you have never slept with a man.
Fact. This is something I hear a lot of, and unfortunately I have heard come from other lesbians. Life happens, sex happens, love happens. We cannot predict or change whom we fall in love with or out of love with. Have a sexual history with a man does not make a lesbian any less of a lesbian. This is an extremely closed minded way of thought and needs to be abolished.
Myth. All lesbians love plaid.
Fact. This is true. 😉
