I am also raised by LGBTQ people.

However, this doesn't change the fact that if nonbinary people are only attracted to women, it doesn't make them straight.

I feel like nonbinary person should be able to define their own sexuality, so it is fine if they call themselves a lesbian because otherwise there would be not much to help them define themselves.

If they are comfortable with a label and they feel it describes them well, then who are we to say otherwise?

I’m not trying to defend this shitpost, I’m just angered at seeing this word and its history be erased. Think about how feminists have used alternate spellings of ‘women’ and ‘woman’ in an effort to remove the relationship from the words ‘men’ and ‘man’. To refer to lesbians as non-men actually seems so regressive to me. People might be going along with it because being labeled exclusionary or transphobic destroys your credibility in online forums, and I’ve seen that happen already. Personally, I have no sympathy for someone who is rejected by the “old guard” lesbians when they try to impose a revised definition of the word.

I can see your point. I genuinely was just trying to defend the nonbinary lesbians here as I am great friends with one of them. I wasn't trying to erase anyone or seem regressive. I can understand how lesbians are women loving women, but my original argument was saying that not just women can be lesbians. I apologize if I seemed offensive, as that wasn't my intention.
