Lesbians With Dicks

Male Lesbians are up in arms about the female of the species nicking their designation. If you are one of those people who thinks “male lesbian” is a contradiction.
Well let me tell you it is a very big deal if you are a bloke from the Greek island of Lesbos, a Lesbian.
The term came to be used as a description for those women who preferred the Sapphic embrace after Sappho of Lesbos, an ancient Greek poetess who wrote that there was no wrong in women seeking “comfort” from each other while their men were away at war.
The Greeks did not see much wrong with many things that later came to be disapproved of, the love of a mature man for a beardless youth for example, a stroll up the old dirt road for the boys while they were away at war and far removed from heir wives and slave-girls. You only have to look at some of the bas-reliefs in their temples to see the kind of things they got up to.
Even the religion of Ancient Greece was about sex and boozing. It is from Greek religious rites that we get the term Dionysian Orgy, although these were far more well organised and sophisticated than the activities that go on around town centres of a Friday and Saturday night now.
Anyway that is the back story of how the men of Lesbos became upset about being confused with rug-munchers.

The modern Greek male is a macho creature of course, nothing girlie about him at all. To emphasise this he often sports a moustache that would make a member of The Village People turn green with envy…?
Oops, pardon.

  1. Macedonia. Lesbians. Who else do the good people of Greece have a grudge against using their names? Is the word Olympic copyrighted to the Government of Greece? 😉
