Lesbos Islanders Mad About the Word "Lesbian"

People of the Greek Island of Lesbos [wiki], the original Lesbians, are suing gay organizations from using the term "lesbian" to mean a homosexual woman:

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.

By the way, the word "lesbian" is derived from the erotic poems of the ancient Greek poet Sappho [wiki], who was born around in the 7th Century BC in the island of Lesbos.

Leave badgirl alone. She's just too big, fat and ugly to get the girlfriend she really wants with sweet vagina for badgirl's red red lips. Ha ha. Yeah badgirl, I'm a queer ... so save your ugly breath ha ha. There is no heaven ha ha. I'm loopy ...

badgirl, if you actually DID read your Bible, you'd be familiar with the concept of "Judge not, lest ye be judged." People like you are the reason Christians have a bad name.

I liked the "cash cow" phrase. It works on so many levels.

What's with the "donnybrook"? Time to get out the bikinis and have us a good old-fashioned jello-wrestling.

I wish the islanders good luck with this. Isn't it kind of like suing homosexuals so we can once again use the word "gay" to describe being happy?

And I agree with Ali S. They're missing out on a great marketing opporunity!
