We’re Taking Lesbian Sexuality Back from the Male Gaze and the Result Is Awesome

You know the influence of the male gaze is strong when even intimacy between women is so often claimed for men’s pleasure. This can be damaging for lesbians, bisexual women, and other women who date and have sex with other women.

This comic says it all about men co-opting lesbian sexuality for their own pleasure – and how we can take it back. Finally, the kind of queer media we’ve been wishing for!
