Being a lesbian means I fancy everyone with a vagina

“Lesbophobia doesn’t always come in the form of physical or verbal abuse – sometimes it’s so well disguised you hardly notice it. When I was at primary school, my parents were friends with a couple who had two children similar in age to me and my brother. The two families very close for a while, living in each others pockets, and my brother and I spent a lot of time with these kids. When we moved away from the area, we lost contact. Our parents reconnected years later and I’ve seen them a handful of times, but I hadn’t seen their son for 15 years, until this week. The first thing he said when he saw me? Not how have you been or long time no see but instead: “You massive lesbian”. I know he didn’t mean any harm, but it really struck me that for him, my sexuality was so significant he couldn’t help but make a big deal about it. That evening, as I was leaving, he took my number and invited me for a drink sometime with him and his girlfriend. “You’ll want to shag her” he joked, because obviously being a lesbian means I fancy everyone with a vagina.”

    I have to admit it’s a little annoying when people assume that just because I’m into girls that means I want to get with every one of them. No, it doesn’t. There are some girls I like and some I don’t. Sometimes I want to say to straight men, “you like girls. Do you want to get with every one of them? Why would you assume I do?”
