Sunday Soundbite: If lesbians said the things straight people say



Happy Sunday!

Ran across a great piece on the Huffington Post this week about a funny new sketch video, and it got me thinking about the power of language in the human social experience. Words are stronger than we often give them credit for--they conceptualize our entire experience and perception, they are how we classify what we experience.

Here's a preview:

For example, if lesbians totally invalidated heterosexual sex: 
"It's not, like, really sex, you know?" 
Or fetishized straight romantic relationships: 
"You two are straight? Can I watch?" 
Or took a tongue-in-cheek approach to straight sexual identity: 
"It's cool if you're straight. I just don't want to see it!"

Definitely worth a look. I hooked you up with a link up above. Enjoy.

Have a wonderful day.
