the Lesbians are suing!

No, not those lesbians.  These Lesbians.

A Greek court has been asked to draw the line between the natives of the Aegean Sea island of Lesbos and the world’s gay women.

Three islanders from Lesbos — home of the ancient poet Sappho, who praised love between women — have taken a gay rights group to court for using the word lesbian in its name.

I kind of understand where they’re coming from, what with the word “Lesbian” having connotations that might either get you beaten up by intolerant thugs, or hit on by frat boys who read Hustler too much. 

However, if people from the island of Lesbos can sue Lesbian groups, shouldn’t I as an Oklahoman be able to sue Oki Dog?  I mean, think of all the merchandising cash they must have made in the eighties!

Oklahoman by birth. Angeleno by fate. I've been in half a dozen bands and own 25 cubic feet of old records. Thank God for Ikea shelves.
