I’m finding some interesting things out with my survey. Most lesbians so far have felt some discrimination at a pagan event but not one single person on the other survey thinks they have discriminated. I can think of two reasons for that one. One, that they are oblivious that what is being said can be interpreted as discrimination. Or Two, they don’t like to admit having said something may have been a discriminatory remark. Personally I think it’s the first one most of the time but we will see.
Another thing that has been eye opening is that straight women don’t see women only space as for women born women but almost every lesbian has so far said, that women born women only is important for 3 main reasons, cannot participate in Maiden, Mother Crone life stages, Assertion or assumption of male privilege, and 57. % said because they haven’t had the same shared experience like menstruation.
Almost every lesbian as said they rank very low on the scale of importance in the community and not one straight woman has thought lesbians were marginalized or low ranking on the totem pole.
I have to admit I’m getting a kick from having asked when they came out as a heterosexual.
We’ll see if the answers stay the same as this goes on
