this just in, gays are smelly friendless demons
Entertainingly, in the Ars Goetia (a 16th century grimoire on demonology that I’m working with at the moment) no demons are associated with homosexuality at all because it’s unthinkable even for demons. Amazing.
So if homosexuality is that bad, what the hell causes bisexuality? Lucifer himself?
There are lesbian women who claime ‘femme’ is a word exclusive to lesbians, and non-lesbians using it are co-opting their culture.
Whilst there was a lesbian woman in the late 1700s (Ann Lister) who used the word femme, and this is the first recorded use of the term in a queer-specific context, they fail to mention that she was describing her lovers with this word rather than herself, and that the word did not at all have the meaning it does today.
In particular, I’d like to mention this fact about one of her lovers:
[Marianna] Lawton and Lister were lovers for several years, including a period during which Lawton was married and had her husband’s permission. (x)
A woman friend told Anne that Marianna is ‘“plus femme que moi” [more womanly than me]. (x)
Marianna was not a lesbian. She was bisexual. In this way, femme can not be lesbian-exclusive, as the woman so often credited with originating the word used it to refer to people who were not lesbian.
Stop using this as an excuse to be biphobic, exclusionary, and a historical revisionist.
