Wisdom from the Lezzies

Or something like that...

Some women can’t say the word lesbian… even when their mouth is full of one.
Kate Clinton

I became a lesbian because of women, because women are beautiful, strong, and compassionate.
Rita Mae Brown

Everyone is their own kind of lesbian. To think there’s a certain way to dress or present yourself in the world is just one more stereotype we have to fit into.
Portia de Rossi
 
I am a writer who happens to love women. I am not a lesbian who happens to write.
Jeanette Winterson

One distressing thing is the way men react to women who assert their equality: their ultimate weapon is to call them unfeminine. They think she is anti-male; they even whisper that she’s probably a lesbian.
Shirley Chisholm

Gay and lesbian people fall in love. We settle down. We commit our lives to one another. We raise our children. We protect them. We try to be good citizens.
California Sen. Sheila Kuehl
