Thursday was "International Lesbian Day".  No actual events were going on, because of the covid and also because this isn't really a thing. But there was some talk on the Twitter box about it so I decided to check that out.

From my observation, the conversation broke down more or less like this:

 -38% people posting fan-art of their favorite female anime characters kissing.
 -23% trans, non-binary, he/him people talking about how great it is to be a lesbian, such as:
 -19% woke people talking about how trans, non-binary, he/him lesbians are valid and loved.
 -14% people wondering why #InternationalLesbianDay is full of pictures of stubble-faced dudes
 -6% stuff actually pertaining to lesbians, including greetings from organizations like Human Rights Campaign and Stonewall and Mermaids, and publications like Diva and PinkNews and Autostraddle

Human Rights Campaign, Stonewall, Mermaids, Diva, Pinknews, Autostraddle to lesbians on #InternationalLesbianDay: "Happy International Lesbian Day!"

Human Rights Campaign, Stonewall, Mermaids, Diva, Pinknews, Autostraddle to lesbians on the other 364 days of the year: "If you're excluding trans people from your dating circle, that's transphobic. You need to overcome your genital preferences. You owe it to your trans sisters to be inclusive."

Ms. Kimmy.  My take is that gays/lesbians had their fight for many decades to be accepted, they've had their time in the celebration and spotlight.  Right now is the time for trans people.  Once it's normalized and we figure out all these complex issues, just like gay marriage and gay couples adoption etc., then everyone will be in the same spotlight again.  It's not that trans people matter more, it's that trans people matter too.  Just give them their 15 minutes or whatever to shine.  You can't have everyone in the band play a different guitar solo at the same time.  Sounds like sh*t lol.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
