Stuff Lesbians Like Part 8: Craig’s List

By

Lesbians like to read the “women seeking women” section of Craig’s List – but not for dating purposes. Very few actual lesbians post on the W4W section of Craig’s List to find a date. Approximately 95% of the people who post on Craig’s List to find a date aren’t real lesbians. Most are men pretending to be lesbians or couples trying to convince a female to join a threesome.

Instead, lesbians post on the W4W section of Craig’s List to complain about and start fights with other lesbians.

Generally, such a thread will start when one lesbian becomes inspired to write a long and rambling post insulting another group of lesbians. When this happens, lesbians everywhere get excited, because a free-for-all is about to unfold! They cannot wait to be the first to craft a response telling the original poster how ignorant she is!

The first few responses may be earnest attempts at debate, but the exchange will quickly devolve into mayhem and rioting.

“Butches are fugly. Why do you have to look like a man?”

“Who u callin’ fugly u bitchh? Skank ho. You a fake lesbien.”

“Butches are hot. Femmes are high maintenance, and since they have more hair, they shed everywhere. I hate that.”

“Who are you calling high maintenance? I’m going to put a boot up your ass!”

[Note: Someone will invariably cut in and attempt to correct someone's grammar and spelling.]

“It would be nice if you could spell the entire word ‘you’ instead of writing like you are text-messaging. Also, learn how to spell ‘lesbian.’ ‘Lesbian’ does not contain two ‘e’s.”

“Shut up, I know how 2 spel u piece of shit. Ur tellin me my spelling sucks because u have nothing 2 say about my message.”

“THE ORIGINAL POSTER HATES HERSELF! SHE IS A HOMOPHOBIC LESBIAN! SELF-HATER!”

“Don’t use ALL-CAPS, asshole!”

“Screw you!”

“Gender binary.”

“You must be a MAAAANNN!”

“I have gas.”

Lesbians are generally an educated bunch, but when they post on Craig’s List, they suddenly become uneducated.

[Note: Inspiration for this post here and here. And Craig's List itself of course!]

    [...] Craig’s List- As Grace Chu puts it, “Lesbians like to read the “women seeking women” section of Craig’s List – but not for dating purposes. Very few actual lesbians post on the W4W section of Craig’s List to find a date.” I am only slight ashamed to admit that I was reading the W4W section this very morning, just to see what nonsense would show up.
