It had to happen eventually. Residents of the Greek island of Lesbos (yeah I thought it was a joke name too) have decided to take the Greek Gay and Lesbian Union to court in an attempt to ban them from using the word “Lesbian”. Apparantly the residents are also suing for damages based on the psychological turmoil they’ve undergone since the gay community “unlawfully seized their country’s name” and are insisting that only residents of Lesbos (no matter their sexual orientation) have the right to be called Lesbians.
I think this is a wonderful idea. As a matter of fact, I’ve decided to sue the gay community for the word “Gay” back. Ever since being happy also meant having to sleep with men I’ve been forcing myself to be miserable just to retain my chosen sexuality. The emotional torment that has put me through is huge and I demand damages and the word “Gay” to be returned to it’s original context. Yes, I’m fully aware that I’m being ridiculous and wouldn’t win a case like that even in American courts, but it’s pretty much the same case as the Lesbians.
