Tackling an issue near and dear to her heart, Everyday Feminism’s Editor Melissa A. Fabello discusses the media’s bad excuse for lesbian and bisexual representation in TV and film.
More importantly, she talks about the ways that misrepresentation and sexualization can have negative effects on how the world treats queer women.
If you’ve ever had a guy tell you that you’re probably only a lesbian because “you haven’t been f*cked right,” this one is for you.
