If your sexual orientation describes anything other than what sex you are attracted to, it’s not a fucking sexual orientation.
So your experience is illustrative of the whole situation? And your generalization totally is accurate, for sure.
Here’s the thing: you’re historically illiterate.
You owe your ability to be openly out to a butch named Storme DeLarverie.
Wikipedia dot org/wiki/Storm%25C3%25A9_DeLarverie
Without here, there’d be no Stonewall, so right away, you owe her plenty.
Then there’s other historical butches, like Anne Lister, who described the lesbian community of the 1800s through her diaries and gives us the first known look into the earliest years of what would later become the lesbian community.
Without her, there’d be no femmes for the morally bankrupt little shitberry you’re trying to defend to sell shit to.
Radclyffe Hall pioneered lesbian literature with The Well of Loneliness, so if you ever read a book where the lesbian doesn’t die, thank her.
And then there’s the fact that butches have always held the gates. In the 1950s, when lesbian culture/community was first becoming truly solidified, butches would be the ones who protected the rest from homophobic attacks, and who would serve as the first community activists.
So don’t come onto my blog and waggle your ignorance in my face, because I will fucking well bite it off.

… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services. The low status of women in many parts of the world has contributed to a burgeoning of the trafficking industry. -

To those who don’t understand the difference between DC and Marvel,

Also let’s be real fucking clear on Wonder Woman: she is SUPPOSED TO BE FEMINIST. Women are her fucking world. And that’s not “bad”; that’s not “weak”; that’s not “less than” the stories told about men.
if you are a radical feminist please preemptively block the following:
all of them are the same person. they’re all the same person with multiple blogs specifically for targeting and…
The only thing that women have to do to be called a “man hater” is name male violence. That is it, any analysis they might have is brushed aside for being too “angry” or too narrowly focused.But when was the last time you heard a man called “woman hater”? Even when men are abusive, or rapists, or johns, or even when they kill women, they are not given that label. His actions are typically explained away, or at worse shoved to the fault of his victim.
