Transcript NATIONAL NOW news Bay Area Chapter Vol, 10, No, 2 March, 1982 When You Meet a Lesbian: Hints for the Heterosexual Woman Do not run screaming from the room--Thisis rude- If you must back away, do so slowly & with discretion-- Do not assume she is attracted to you-- Do not assume she is not attracted to you-- Do not assume you are not attracted to her-- Do not expect her to be as excited about meeting a heterosexual as yoj 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 youa re straight--She probably already knows-- Do not tell her that it is sexist to prefer women--that people are people & she should be able to love everybody--Do not tell her that men are as oppressed by sexism as women & women should help men fight their oppression--These are common fallacies & should be treated as such-- 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 twenty-four hours a day-- Do not assume that because she is 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 is taking the easy way out, Think About That-- HOW DARE YOU PRESUME I'M HETEROSEXUAL!
