§175, which forbade homosexual conduct in Germany (1872-1994) explicitly referred to men but not to women.

The reason for this is simple (hint: it’s misogyny):

Men are real people with a real sexual orientation. Therefore their actions have to be restrained and punished via law. 

Women don’t have to be addressed specifically because if you don’t like lesbians you just beat the shit out of them, force them into marriage, manipulate them emotionally until they fall into a depression or commit suicide, and cure them with rape. 

Women who are not attracted to men? Not a thing.

Hashtag Do not confuse homophobia with lesbophobia.

Hastag Do not say “gays and lesbians” in one breath.

Our struggles could not be more different.

I’m sad that this needs to be said, but please don’t derail this post.

Lesbophobia targets lesbians, regardless of who else is harmed.

Here’s a couple of things I did not say:

- men had it so much better during WW2!!!11! Male privilege!1!!

- women should’ve been criminalized the same way men have been, because that’s how equality works!!!!

.

I said the struggles of gays and the struggles of lesbians are fundamentally different and examining laws is one way to point that out.

It boggles my mind how people can deliberately misinterpret that to either say I’m a misogynist or that I hate gays.
