Transcript When You Meet a Lesbian Person Hints for the Heterosexual Woman -Do not run screaming from the room. This is rude. -If you must back away, do so slowly and with discretion. -Do not assume she is attracted to you. -Do not assume she is not attracted to you. -Do not expect her to be as excited about meeting a heterosexual as you may be about meeting a lesbian. She was probably raised with them. -Do not immediately start talking about your boyfriend or husband in order to make it clear that you are straight. She probably already knows. -Do not tell her that it is sexist to prefer women, that people are people, and that she should be able to love everybody. Do not tell her that men are as oppressed by sexism as women and women should help men fight their oppression. These are common fallacies and should be understood as such. -Do not invite her someplace where there will be men unless you tell her in advance. She may not want to be with them. -Do not ask her how she got this way. Instead, ask yourself how you got that way. -Do not assume that she is dying to talk about being a lesbian. -Do not expect her to refrain from talking about being a lesbian. -Do not trivialize her experience by assuming it is a bedroom issue only. She is a lesbian 24 hours a day. -Do not assume that because she's a lesbian she wants to be treated like a man. -Do not assume that her heart will leap with joy if you touch her arm (condescendingly?...flirtatiously?... power-testingly?). It makes her angry. -If you are tempted to tell her she's taking the easy way out, THINK ABOUT THAT. --Atlanta Lesbian Feminist Alliance newsletter UNCLASSIFIEDS Beginning with this issue, pbt will print non-commercial unclassifieds FREE!
