It imposes a differentiation that in many cases doesn’t exist in daily life, for the sole purpose of fortifying the lesbian identity against a symbolic “bisexual” invasion.
In many ways, this particular discussion is not “real” but simply an excuse. Take for example the fact that my critics don’t discuss bi men and “faggot”, and the lack of any discussion about lesbians with “passing privilege” reclaiming “dyke”. Do recall that in many cases, bi-identified and lesbian-identified women’s lived experiences are very close or even indistinguishable.
So why are bi women singled out? Biphobia."
