12 Stories About How Lesbians Are Perpetually Misunderstood

, | Right | June 15, 2022

Dear readers,

This pride month, we’re creating a new series of LGBTQIA-themed roundups. Today, we’re focusing on lesbians, who, despite coming in all shapes and sizes (just like everyone else!) seem to be the brunt of many jokes and stereotypes, even within the LGBTQIA community!

We’ve included the lesbian community flag to show that like all things, your sexual orientation is a spectrum, often within another spectrum, and all or few markers on this spectrum may or may not apply! The colors include dark orange for “gender non-conformity”, orange for “independence”, light orange for “community”, white for “unique relationships to womanhood”, pink for “serenity and peace”, dusty pink for “love and sex”, and dark rose for “femininity.”

We’ve dug up twelve stories from the Not Always Right archives about lesbians and how they seem to be perpetually misunderstood. We hope you find them interesting and informative, as well as revealing about the stigma and discrimination all members of the LGBTQIA community endure.


Sexually-Transmitted Translation – The good news is it seems to have worked out anyway.

Fruity Is In The Eye Of The Beholder – “No” means “no”!

I’m A Complete Lesbozionist – How you lasted an hour without laughing in her face is beyond us.

On The Straight And Narrow (Minded) – We’re sure he’s normally a really “nice guy”.

Legally Wed With Nothing To Dread – Well, that’s a delightful change of pace.

Not Into Darcy’s – Hits from the comments: “He wouldn’t be my Firth choice.”

Not Listening Is A Disease – It’s scary that someone so inattentive is taking care of patients.

Broad-Game – This just in: lesbians don’t like boobs.

The Mother Of All “Phases” – Don’t you just wish you could shove certain relatives into a closet?

“Playing Golf Together” Must Mean Something Else, Too – It’s Dorothy you’re thinking of, GG.

D&DLGBT – If only your mom would roleplay as an open, receptive parent.

Not An Ally – Hits from the comments: “You want to make your kids run away? That’s how you make your kids run away.”
