LOL of the night.
Whilst I was preparing my dinner tonight, with the news playing on the tv in the background, my attention was suddenly caught by the news story of the Greek island of Lesbos.
Oh yeah, I kid you not.
And if anyone actually caught this, they're petitioning, or have gone to court? about what the good people of Lesbos are called.
Yep, you guessed it.
They're trying to make people recognise them as "Lesbians" as in residents of Lesbos, and not gay women. Or something along those lines! But I think the damage has been done.
No one of this time is ever going to recognise them as "Lesbians", without thinking they are a whole island of gay women, perhaps a rather Amazon-esque sort of idea haha.
What tickled me pink even more was that one would be able to say
"That man is a lesbian"
which just seems plain odd. :P
I've got nothing against the residents of Lesbos, or actual "Lesbos", I just reckon we can't change what gay women are referred to as.. I mean, it's just a tad late to create another name..
