The Gay Bible? "woMAN"????

"And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Aida, and she slept: and he took one of her ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from woman, made he another woman, and brought her unto the first. And Aida said, 'This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman..."

Yet ANOTHER man re/writing the bible! Okay, fine and dandy, no surprises there. Hmm a gay man re/writing the bible, okay different, maybe or maybe not. A gay man re/writing the bible with a "gay/homosexual" slant, beginning with woMAN in the lead role/s? Not impressive, in fact as a LESBIAN XXer, infuckingsulting!!!!!!!!!

The writer's sheer patriarchal male privileged conditioned renderings couldnt be more glarring here or more of a slap in the face! I will barely make mention in this new seemingly PCed version that "god" of course is a "he" even though this god creates "woMAN" in HIS own image! HUH??? Instead I'll aim my disgust at the nothing new misogyny that begins this tale.

Who but a MAN and only a MAN (gay or not) would do a re/write of the bible and have the female Adam (Aida) name her female companion "woMAN"????!!!! Patriarchy created the label "woMAN" in order to assert his authority over woMAN!!! To illustrate that woMAN is nothing more than the sum of what all the official Bibles (penned by MEN) tell us, an extention of MAN, made by GOD-MAN and made for MAN! Obviously the gay boys arent immune to patriarchal male privileges and misogyny!

Who but a MAN and only a MAN (gay or otherwise) would re/write the bible and label the "woMEN" and the dominant sexual orientation "GAY"!!!! Gay MEN have ruled over the gay and lesbian movement since it began. And despite their dominant power and male privilege gay men have stood aside and let every tom, dick and harry into the gay and lesbian movement despite the queer alphabets doing virtually nothing for the movement but muddy the waters. This trend continues because gay MEN are not affected, their spaces have not been invaded, their identities trampled on at best stolen at worst, their sexuality served up on a platter for the likes of the heteropatriarchs and their history and personal vernacular co-opted by every nutcase under the "queer" umbrella!

This is a beautifully nauseating example yet again of why the L-for lesbian needs to seperate herself from the queer-theoried alphabet soup known as the GLBTIQ and counting! If this is the gay boys trying to do us (LESBIANS) a bleeding favour, they can shove their patriarchal misogynied favour up their cum-filled arses!
