Lesbians sue lesbians in battle over Lesbos

Hot Lesbian (legal) action!

ATHENS, Greece (AP) - 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.

Tee hee. (Hat tip: Mark Steyn, who says "lawyers in Gay, Michigan will be watching the case with interest." Heh. Just wait until Dildo, Newfoundland and Intercourse, Pennsylvania get in on the action!)

P.S. Maybe Angela Keathley and Renee Thomas can file amicus briefs?

The only thing missing is the NFL cheerleaders in the bathroom stall.

Not missing anymore. I just added a P.S.

Good idea. :)

Hey - what do you expect from a country whose federal legislature is named for a sexual act ?


P.S. Maybe Angela Keathley and Renee Thomas can file amicus briefs?

Or, perhaps, amicus thongs.

What about Virgin, Utah?

The hot lesbian cheerleaders are back! Rock on!!
