To our detractors

On April 20th 2021 Lesbian Labour launched our website. We received overwhelmingly positive support.

However, within our own party the reception was varied. Comments on one Facebook group were shockingly hostile. The post attracted almost 1,000 comments. Though many members spoke up and argued our case very well, the ratio of negative to positive comments was 2:1.

The responses of a group of individuals on Facebook is not necessarily indicative of attitudes across the party towards Lesbian autonomy. However, such hostility requires a very firm response. This is no way to create a welcoming space for Lesbians.

As Lesbians we have every right to self-organise and do not seek or need permission from hostile men, or women with a different point of view.

The comments levelled at us were offensive and inaccurate and made spurious unfounded allegations.

We have gone through the comments and distilled the various criticisms. Here are our answers.

I have been fighting for Women's rights since I was 14. It started with a school protest to get us the right to wear trousers
We went to Greenham Common and protested about Nuclear Weapons and were treated appallingly as Women. I walked to Moscow and saw how Women were treated in other countries

It has been almost a year since the murder of Sarah Everard, and nothing has changed. Still on average a woman is murdered every 4 days by her violent male partner/ex-partner, making FEMALES the most vulnerable group in society
In the early 2000s, a group of feminists created a female-centered, feminist, and empowering sport - Roller Derby.

In the 2020s, many Roller Derby teams took out all references to women out of their names.

How these people would rather their friend suffer something so horrific then accept it’s okay to be a gender non conforming lesbian. Like some sort of sick fucking human sacrifice to their own performative “queerness.” I am fucking devastated.
