UnStraightening Lesbian: Removing the Heterosexual Lens: Adrienne Rich

Next up in our unSTRAIGHTening Lesbian series is poet/theorist/Radical Feminist Adrienne Rich.

Adrienne Rich or ACR as Sylvia Plath referred to her, made her way to "lesbian" STRAIGHTBIANISM via the same route most Radical Feminists did/do; unexpressed voluminous anger for her own poor life choices she readily blamed the men in her life for (father/husband) and collective man (patriarchy). Rich said of her marriage:

"I married in part because I knew no better way to disconnect from my first family," she says. "I wanted what I saw as a full woman's life, whatever was possible.
Rich marries hoping to escape familial confines/duties only to find herself unhappily in the same trapped place, only worse; with children.
"I wanted, then, more than anything, the one thing of which there was never enough: time to think, time to write."  
 Rich's dishonestly in the marriage lead to both her and her husband having affairs:
Shortly thereafter, her husband Alfred Conrad committed suicide:
 Apparently she was such a hotty ALL the men in NY wanted a piece of her pie! Umm sure, okay!

After cheating on her husband with both men and women, once her hubby was out of the way/dead, Rich embarked through Radical Feminism, on a mission to remove Lesbian from those gross, vile,  dykey/mannish/wannabe men/act like men/think like men Lezzies SHE perceived actual Lesbians to be/look like and give Lesbian an air of upper middle class academic redressing, making Lesbian more appealing/palatable and acceptable to greater Feminist groups/women.

Like Radical Feminists in Rich's day and RadFems now, Rich desperately needed the IDEA of Lesbian to both vent her anger and (mistakenly) use as a means to remove herself from (in her mind) Heterosexuality/Heterocentric confines rendering her helpless/afraid/weak and ineffectual. As a Heterosexual woman, Rich could only access Lesbian through lying:

I will show shortly in Rich's piece de resistance that Rich (unlike some STRAIGHTBIANS), selfishly planned and executed her lies.

It is precisely codswallop like this that fully seals ANY question (were you to have any) of Rich's Heterosexuality. Radical Feminists like Rich tell themselves collective man enforces Heterosexual female grooming/dress etc (when actually it is Heterosexual females who both desire/enforce beauty standards) yet cannot explain why Lesbians en masse do not fall prey to the same Heterocentric grooming standards.
Lesbians have always existed and have never required validation for our existence. Women, particularly damaged Radical Feminists like Rich spend their lives/careers seeking some sort of warped validation and blame men for not GIVING it to them!
Rich often talks out of both sides of her mouth; on one side she claims her "erotic" feelings for women have been stifled via Patriarchy and on the other side she claims sexual feelings between women are not necessary for qualifying them as Lesbian! Rich ignores or doesnt bother to notice most Lesbians do not have the luxury of a closet, most Dykes are visibly Lesbian. Lesbian visibility shines for some Lesbians physically and mentally and other Lesbians less physically and more mentally. Either way, Dyke thought processes alone peg us for Lesbian, as any Lesbian can attest to since the advent of the internet. Even online with a genderless name and no image of ourselves, we are often assumed/believed by Hets (usually Het women) to be men!

In Diversity and Variability in Women’s Sexual Identities STRAIGHTBIAN Carla Rappaport Golden said of Rich's lesbian

Lesbian was problematic for Rich precisely because of the ugly depraved dykey sexually perverted masculinist ideas held by Hetero society/Heterosexuals like Adrienne Rich herself. But Adrienne Rich desperately needed Lesbian because it encompassed (to her) anti maleness, what she didnt need was the alienating baggage attached to Lesbian. So Rich tried to simultaneously redefine Lesbian for Heterosexual Feminist inclusion while distancing the debauchery attached to Lesbian, thus Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence was born.

Adrienne Rich begins Comp Het with a Straightbianesque quote from Doris Lessing's The Golden Notebook:

This quote not only sets the stage for the rest of Rich's essay, it IS the stage Rich starred for the rest of her life! A Heterosexual privileged life whereby Rich and Radical Feminists like her, chanted to themselves and in Radical Feminist groups like an incantation; I'm a lesbian! And dont think for a minute Lesbians missed the degrading walls Doris Lessing sandwiched Lesbian in this passage! This was Rich's fear, without a man, her only choices were bitterness, spinsterhood or Lesbian. Rich CHOSE lesbian, not actual Lesbianism, but a Hetsplained version she could somewhat live with. Like Lessing's Anna, Rich was too weak to forge a relationship with a man where SHE was willing to or capable of, living her new found consciousness.  Moving on:
Rich believed that Lesbian scholarship was forced into hiding by a patriarchal driven Compulsory Heterosexuality that even mid range Feminism enforced. Rich failed to understand that Lesbian erudition wasnt (isnt) quashed or silenced by patriarchy, it wasnt (isnt) understood by Heterosexuals, particularly Het women! Rich feared losing academic clout by choosing Lesbian as her modus vivendi and through RadFem speak tried to make HER brand of lesbian acceptable to greater Feminism.
Rich assumes Homophobia alone inhabited Feminists (Het women) from trying to coral Het women toward a political lesbianism via feminist theory and why lesbian art/literature etc remained rare. Rich failed to see how her own warped man hating RadFem agenda was responsible for biological Lesbian invisibility in the arts and elsewhere than was/is Homophobia, because she blinded herself of our existence.

Further in the essay Rich says:
Rich brings up Lesbians being closeted in the workplace but the exact experiences she uses to make her points are the experiences Heterosexual women (like her), claiming to be Lesbians (like her) had with the luxury of being closeted! Most Dykes NEVER have that luxury and most Dykes even if they did would NOT put some fucking job over their entire lives! The only Homophobe here is Adrienne Rich!
Because Rich herself (a Heterosexual woman) didnt feel or experience blatant Homophobia (why would she?) she ignorantly theorised compulsory heterosexuality was to blame for Feminist silence about Lesbians/Lesbian issues, including the reason Feminists wouldnt platform Lesbianism as a possible choice against patriarchy/men! Rich claims non Radical Feminists were in collusion WITH patriarchy! Non Radical Feminists, according to Rich, helped provide patriarchy with pussy, pay and passion!
Rich found the term Lesbian limiting because Lesbian didnt include STRAIGHT women like her and because Rich didnt like the psycho-logical definitions defining Lesbian or the societal connotations colouring Lesbian by Het society. By expanding Lesbian to include all female relationship types, not simply "genital" as Rich crudely puts it, Lesbian wouldnt be so foul an idea, for women or society. Rich fails to acknowledge the LIMITS, limits based on HER HETEROSEXUALLY driven assumptions about biological Lesbians, that real Lesbianism isnt defined by pussy licking or KFC pussy (finger licking good). Lesbian was crude, vulgar, plebian not because it was/is, BUT because it was based on Adrienne Rich's own sick fucked up homophobic warped fucking views of Lesbian!

Being a Lesbian has fuck all to do with taboos or rejecting Heterosexuality, it has ONLY to do with being born physiologically Lesbian! Lesbians arent saying no to patriarchy, patriarchy doesnt factor (collectively) anywhere into a Lesbian's life. Lesbian past, present and future grew/grow/will grow up without any/little knowledge of Lesbians; fortunately abilities innate to our survival ensure we find each other and are capable of survival even if we dont. The ONLY destroyers of Lesbian, records or histories are Radical Feminists like Adrienne Rich! What has been recorded  as "lesbian" experiences/narratives etc, are instead the experiences/narratives etc of STRAIGHTBIANS like ACR!

Adrienne Rich, in typical Heterosexual fashion, was a little SHIT TON obsessed with genitals/sex.

In other words, Adrienne Rich and Radical Feminism itself are NOT LESBIAN! Bizarrely in this strange (sick) passage Rich twice brings up/equates a child/mother being turned on during infant feeding. I refuse to think past Rich's statement here because to do so is just toooooo fucking SICK and it most certainly is NOT Lesbian!

Adrienee Rich said of women's diminutiveness art/history in When We Dead Awaken:

Precisely because of STRAIGHTBIANS like Adrienne Rich, Lesbians/Lesbian youth flounder and flail trying to find ourselves in the world. Thanks to the likes of Rich and her warped RadFem ilk, most of the signs and symbols labeled Lesbian are false. They point us right back to female Heterosexual mindset and body that paints us into a corner of dysphoria, reinforcing Lesbian confusion and resulting in a lesbian community made up of Heterosexual women where Lesbians STILL do not exist.

Adrienne Rich discovered Lesbian in the same way Christopher Columbus discovered America, she ignored those already living here and those she couldnt ignore she kindly smothered in blankets of smallpox.

UnStraightening Lesbian: Removing the Heterosexual Lens: Rita Mae Brown

We begin our next set of unSTRAIGHTening Lesbians with the Sneaky Pie Lavender Menace to Lesbians herself Rita Mae Brown. If not familiar with Rita Mae, she was an early element in the Radical Feminist movement after she was more or less removed from Betty Friedan's National Organization of Women (NOW). The purported reason Rita Mae was ousted was because she claimed at the time to be a Lesbian. Through this ousting Rita Mae and other Lesbians STRAIGHTBIANS formed the RadFem group the Lavender Menace:
But it wasnt Rita Mae's libber angst that cloaked her in Lesbianism, it was her first novel Rubyfruit Jungle:

For making the primary point of these posts, (unSTRAIGHTening Lesbian) one really doesnt have to look beyond Rubyfruit Jungle. The novel rapidly begins with prime character Molly STRAIGHT away focusing on DICK, no not as in another character, as in a boy the young Molly exploits for profit using his uncircumcised penis in a show and tell: (Ah penis, something every young Dyke wants to see-think again honey!)

From there the novel speeds to Molly having sex with a straight female friend AND then her straight male cousin Leroy:
A sexual relationship young Molly repeats throughout her cohabitation with cousin Leroy/his family:
Molly struggles to outgrow her illegitimate hick background which both deeply troubles/embarrasses her by heading as soon as she can to the big city; New York. Once there we encounter Molly's first time at a gay bar with a gay male friend:
Its clear from this moment it isnt just Molly who knows nothing about Butch or Femme Lesbians, its Rita Mae for posing this question at all.
Rita Mae uses her novel to slam other STRAIGHTBIANS dominating the "lesbian" bar scene, damaged Het women who could only see relationships through their own Heterosexual nature; male or female. Mo was no more a Butch than Molly; everything, INCLUDING Lesbian, depended solely on what they claimed to be, not what they actually were. Rita Mae's snobbish STRAIGHTBIAN Molly places her own warped version of Lesbian (two attractive society approved straight women having sexual relations) above that of fat ugly STRAIGHTBIANS who portray/participate in Heterosexual mimicry. Moving on:
Rita Mae's Molly is so disgusted by the lesbians she encounters at the bar she jokingly would rather encounter a rapist than entertain the notion of sex with the bar lezzies. Molly thinks herself miles and morals above most, even while fucking a small family; mother, father and underage daughter (thank god they didnt have any pets!):
Given Molly's Hetero MALE mimicry (forcing herself on a woman/the woman's no equals yes) there was no surprise why Betty Friedan could no longer find a place for Rita Mae's Radical Feminism!
Polina turns the table on Molly and entices her to role play a game Polina and her husband play involving public urinal sex, only in this scenario Polina is the man to Molly's woman:
Molly then moves on to a date with Polina's husband, Molly figures by fucking Paul she can be closer to Polina, sound like any Lesbians you know? Me either!
Molly then moves onto Polina and Paul's underage daughter:
The dialogue for Alice wanting to have sex with her mother sounds eerily familiar, and Rita Mae's treatment of incest as untraumatic is the ONLY thing "antihuman" here!
Molly says earlier in the novel of a similar fuckfest:
Rubyfruit Jungle sums up everything that is Lesbian about Rita Mae and Lesbian in the novel, NOTHING!

That didnt stop Rita Mae from giving advice to young suicidal Gays and Lesbians in her intro to:
Homosexuals who arent "successful gay people" like Rita Mae, (successful meaning Homosexuals who are Heterosexuals who use Homosexuality for their own perverse uses) dress odd, have "exaggerated mannerisms" and are akin to hookers!
Rita Mae, like Molly from Rubyfruit Jungle, sees Homosexuals/and or STRAIGHTBIANS who are found in gay bars as warped, alcoholics and obsessed with their Homosexuality (or in the case of STRAIGHTBIANS, obsessed with their claim of Homosexuality). These people, Rita Mae tells young Gays and Lesbians, are life's LOSERS! Rita Mae blatantly states actual Homosexuals can simply cast off our natures and be like her (a pro incest, polygamous, bisexual)!
Rita Mae Brown by her own admission (when convenient) cast off calling herself a Lesbian, not because she wasnt (she clearly isnt) but because it was no longer profitable to her now mainstream Heterosexual female audience. Rita Mae hated and still hates labels:
Being a Lesbian isnt constricting or freeing and it mostly certainly isnt a sarcophagus burying us alive! Like many STRAIGHTBIANS, Rita Mae donned Lesbian like cross dressers don woman, Lesbian for Rita functioned as fetish, financial gain and fame.

Trans Trending-Who is Transitioning? STRAIGHTBIANS

Since Trans Trending has reached unprecedented highs, this blog has minimized documenting who is transitioning and instead focused more on other issues erasing/troubling Lesbians past/present/future. When I first noticed the Trans Trend occurring among Lesbian identified females twenty plus years ago, and then began documenting that trend ten years ago, my initial aim was to correct the false assumptions that the lesbian community is losing all its butches. In more than two decades I still have yet to see a Butch Lesbian transition, but given how few of us there are at any given time and actually being Lesbians, with Lesbian brains/bodies/experiences it is not surprising we wouldnt entertain the notion of transition. Sadly, some Dykes have (do) fall/en prey to transition, but even in those cases it is rarely without a STRAIGHTBIAN's pressured suggestion.

In reexamining years of documented cases of female transition (with the help of Mrs Dirt-a process we are still actively working through) it has become clearer and clearer there are a great deal more STRAIGHTBIANS who transition than simply the odd Pat Califia, Susan Lee or James Darling, in fact THEY appear to be more the norm than the exception. While I have written spottily on sexually abused females who transition, I have yet to really focus on the numbers involved, their pathology or their Hetero/sexual orientation (which bears out in transition ie cross sex hormone use). That however is something that will be revealed/detailed soon, today I leave you with one such example of a STRAIGHTBIAN transitioning. Just like STRAIGHTBIAN types defined/documented here in post after post, there are types of STRAIGHTBIANS who transition, this girl is one such type. All major types will also be defined in a future post.

Without going into the particulars, this unnamed type goes something like this; child sexual abuse/emotional turbulence/puberty/eating disorders/cutting/body modifications/hyper sexuality with both sexes/employing queer/poly as an identity or lifestyle/mixing/moving in Trans/Queer circles/transitions:

When STRAIGHTBIANS in this group fail to hide themselves from themselves behind body modification and make up, they seek transition to both hide behind as well as feel empowered through identifying with their abuser/s. They dont count on becoming more victimised by their own behaviours under the influence of testosterone.

Why STRAIGHTBIAN Victoria Brownworth Gives Lesbian a Bad Name & a Bad Taste in Our Collective Lesbian Mouth

While Victoria Brownworth is on a future list of unSTRAIGHTening Lesbian, some tweets from her that crossed my timeline today angered me enough to do a quick post now, lets call it a PRE unSTRAIGHTening Lesbian featuring Victoria Brownworth.

If you arent familiar with VB or VAB as she's often sited:
Celebrated as an out Lesbian journalist despite being fully HETEROSEXUAL. Brownworth has even criticized Lesbian co-opters like herself:
That being said, the reason for this mini-post involves VAB recently yammering on her Twitter timeline regarding the #MeToo Uma Thurman thing, which she quickly (per usual) redirected toward herself (Munchhausen much?):
I have permanent scars too, but not from any sexual assault, but from reading VAB's Lesbian STRAIGHTBIAN smut she once pimped out like a common whore to titillate other warped fucked up STRAIGHTBIANS like herself:
Pretty funny VAB wasnt so traumatized she couldnt think up/write sick fucked up shit like this (tip of the iceberg or cock? I assure you)! What traumatized rape victim do you know dreaming about the SEXY WET TIP OF A MAN'S COCK who is about to rape her? Fucking NONE thats how many! And most certainly NO FUCKING LESBIAN UNDER ANY FUCKING CIRCUMSTANCE THINKS ABOUT A MAN'S WET TIPPED COCK, EVER! Yet Brownworth's erotic fiction/fantasy life is filled with Hetero rape fantasy shit!

There is nothing erotic about being raped, and there is NOTHING LESBIAN (erotic or otherwise) about Hetero(anything)sexual rape "scenes"! Victoria Brownworth isnt a Lesbian and there is NOTHING Lesbian in ANYTHING she has ever done or written! VAB is another STRAIGHTBIAN in a LONG line of STRAIGHTBIANS damaging/convoluting EVERYTHING society knows about Lesbians, including what Lesbians/Lesbian youth think/know about ourselves.

Till now that is.
