    Greek islanders: We are the true Lesbians
    Trio from Lesbos sues gay rights group, says use of L-word is insulting

    By NICHOLAS PAPHITIS
    Associated Press
    Published on: 04/30/08
    ATHENS, Greece — A Greek court has been asked to draw the line between gay women and the natives of the Aegean Sea island of Lesbos.
    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.

    Because THAT would make sense.

    I wonder how many women named Monica Lewinsky would love to sue the former White House intern of the same name.

    With all of the pain and strife going on in this world, 3 islanders are getting their knickers in a knot over a darn word. I have to agree with the poster above me that said it reads like a Python sketch: it does... LoL
