    Greek Lesbians

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7376919.stm

    Campaigners on the Greek island of Lesbos are to go to court in an attempt to stop a gay rights organisation from using the term "lesbian".

    The islanders say that if they are successful they may then start to fight the word lesbian internationally.

    The issue boils down to who has the right to call themselves Lesbians.

    Is it gay women, or the 100,000 people living on Greece's third biggest island - plus another 250,000 expatriates who originate from Lesbos?

    The man spearheading the case, publisher Dimitris Lambrou, claims that international dominance of the word in its sexual context violates the human rights of the islanders, and disgraces them around the world.

    He says it causes daily problems to the social life of Lesbos's inhabitants.

    Injunction sought

    In court papers, the plaintiffs allege that the Greek government is so embarrassed by the term Lesbian that it has been forced to rename the island after its capital, Mytilini.

    An early court date has now been set for judges to decide whether to grant an injunction against the Homosexual and Lesbian Community of Greece and to order it to change its name.

    A spokeswoman for the group has described the case as a groundless violation of freedom of expression, and has pledged to fight it.

    The term lesbian originated from the poet Sappho, who was a native of Lesbos.

    Sappho expressed her love of other women in poetry written during the 7th Century BC.

    But according to Mr Lambrou, new historical research has discovered that Sappho had a family, and committed suicide for the love of a man.
    So, has anyone been to the island of Lesbos? Is it as good as they say it is?

    Sorry guys, you're outnumbered by a few hundred million at least when it comes to "lesbian" meaning "homosexual female" rather than "whiny, dumbfuck Greek islander with a vastly oversized ego". Maybe we could make up a new name for your little island, like... Retardania or Dumbfucksland.

    Thanks for adding absolutely nothing to the conversation other than the vague impression that you're mentally deficient. This isn't a spam thread, get the fuck out.

    Re: Greek Lesbians

    Why not just call yourselves "Lesbosians" or "Lesbers"?

    How about "Lesbonese"?

    pretty sure they called themselves lesbians before the homosexuals did

    why doesn't the female group call THEMselves lesbers? i think it's a much better name for them anyway

    Lesbians never have sex with men, gays never have sex with women, straights never have sex with their same sex. How about we all just call ourselves bi and cut the shit with the overly complicated labeling process.

    Also Lesbian lesbians.

    Nice edit. But I think the first one was better.
