LGBQ loneliness

Specifically “L”, though I suspect every category of LGBQ suffers its own special kind of isolation. Interesting:

I hate how the queerio community acts like being a lesbian means “UwU I love girls and every gorl is soft n precious and we wear matching flannels and both SLAY together!!! Wow being a lesbian is so cute and fun OwO.” When in reality, being an actual lesbian means growing up hating a part of yourself you cannot change, worrying that you come across as predatory just by trying to be nice, crying because you’re so lonely, men getting angry and putting you in danger when you reject their advances. Being a lesbian means when I was with a woman I was happy with she said “I’m glad this room has two beds because I don’t want to deal with them knowing.” Being a lesbian is not this cute stereotyped caricature kweer culture acts like it is. We deal with real life struggles and consequences for being female homosexuals that some entitled straight man with a fetish will never understand
