    Default Lesbians Getting Sued For National Name Infringement

    The People of Lesbos are suing a gay rights group over the usage of the word "Lesbian"

    ATHENS, Greece - 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.

    One of the plaintiffs said Wednesday that the name of the association, Homosexual and Lesbian Community of Greece, "insults the identity" of the people of Lesbos, who are also known as Lesbians.

    "My sister can't say she is a Lesbian,"
    said Dimitris Lambrou. "Our geographical designation has been usurped by certain ladies who have no connection whatsoever with Lesbos," he said.

    GAME OVER!
    Time to release all the nukes and start over.

    That's the origin of the word. The first woman-loving woman was from Lesbos, hence... the name. The first known/recorded/famous one, that is.

    ...So much for outrage and the lack of stating well known facts.

    So, can we call a homosexual human from lesbos: lesbian lesbian? or no?


    And I guess I'll go find a bride there, "Hey~ I married to a lesbian... yea!"

    This is indeed awesome. I am interested in if the lesbians (who will probably get the support of civil rights groups) will be able to overcome this argument.

    Also, I doubt they have a case unless they registered it a trademark, am I right?
