Lesbian Clichés to Avoid:

Away on the wind~
The same as it's okay for a seme/uke relationship in Yaoi.

It's fine, it's workable. Just annoying to some people.

Jesus Christ, I was just clarifying what I meant. No need to jump down my fucking throat.

But whatever. Seeya, I'm out.
There are too many toasters in my chimney!

No need to be so sensitive either. I'm wordy, I was just clarifying too, it's not meant to come off as intimidating.

@EI: Assuming the most cynical view possible (as in, I only ever make the first story, and never any of the follow ups in my head) her lesbianness isn't actually ever mentioned. Mostly because the group she in, while basically a major supporting group, all remain one dimensional (sexuality and relationship-wise) until the second part of the story. She is a majorish character, but not a major character, as are the majority of people in the group.

Not to derail too hard, but I had a similar question...

Bi the Way: How offensive do real bisexuals find it?
If I were to write some of the strange things that come under my eyes they would not be believed.

Derail all you like, I've gotten most of my answers already.

I don't see how that could be offensive to real bisexuals at all. In my experience, it can be real Truth in Television. I'm a bisexual and I'm like that; I never really bring up my 'alternate' sexuality unless the situation specifically calls for it, but I have no problem expressing my interest in both sexes when having related conversations.

Though, it is true for me at least, that sometimes it can also be tiring to see 'bisexuals' who are so mostly just for some kind or gimmick or interest value, but in all their major relationships within the story they're in a heterosexual pair anyway. Sometimes when done this way, it can seem like a tacked on trait to show that the character is a bit 'different' or 'unconventional' in some way. That's how I felt about 13 in House, for example (but that could just be me) .

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
