Thank you so much to everyone who has participated in this thread! Your comments are much appreciated. The listing has been edited to clarify my position, and to reflect some of the feedback this pin has received.
Comparing butches to men is lesbophobic. We are women. We are not oppressors, we are not privileged, being gender non-conforming actually puts us in a more vulnerable position.
You’re just digging a deeper hole for yourself, buddy.
Also, very shameless of you, having fucking Labrys pins, No Girl Hate” pins and “Dyke” pins and shitting all over the most visible and vulnerable subset of lesbians. You think it’s OK to make money out of us but shit all over us at the same time. Nice hypocrisy there.
I’m reblogging this until this pin shit gets taken down.
I was gonna copy and paste some of the text in the listing here but its all equally disgusting and I can’t even decide what part is the worst. I reported the item under “this item may be prohibited by etsy” and explained why I think it should be removed. It may not work, but if you have an etsy acct you should report this listing, and explain yourself.
What a fucking shameless, dishonest, lesbophobic piece of trash. This asshole will not apologize and keeps defending her bigoted point of view. She keeps comparing butches to men and even says that eventual misogyny coming from a butch lesbian is worse that that which comes from men.
Is there a butch lesbian violence epidemic I didn’t hear of? Do butches rape and murder their partners every day? Do butches hold institutional power and use it to oppress women? Do butches own most of the land and the money in the world? Do butches go shoot schools when they are rejected?
STOP comparing us to men, you disgusting, unapologetic lesbophobe. Every time you write something it shows more and more clearly what a bigot you are. And KEEP THE FUCK AWAY from the lesbian community. You are NOT femme, you are NOT one of us. You’re just a greedy crook who wants our money.
I encourage everyone to go report that item to Etsy. It’s pretty easy to create an account if you don’t have one, and you can even log in with your Facebook. And do not spend any money on this greedy bastard’s shop. Spread the word. She doesn’t respect lesbians, she doesn’t deserve a single penny from us.
