TV & Lesbian Erasure

... I'm gay
Are the only words we hear girls and women say on TV when they come out to family and friends. But why do we never hear lesbian? Why is the word lesbian non existent in TV shows trying to represent LGBTQA+ people? Unless the show is directed towards LGBTQA+ you'll hear lesbian in those instances but on "regular" shows such as Pretty Little Liars or Supergirl why is the norm gay? There's a difference for a reason isn't there? Men are gay and women are lesbians. But then does that mentality in it self just encourage men and women to be separate beings? Words are constantly changing and growing with the times. That now its more common for women who are lesbians to call themselves gay instead of saying lesbian. Maybe because gay is shorter which is why they prefer to say that but why never say it just once? Is there something wrong with that word? Is gay the only word they'll allow in prime time television? Or is it just our culture now? But it's something to keep a a lookout for. Whenever there's a girl questioning her sxuality or coming out see wether she says gay or lesbian. There's nothing wrong with saying gay in replacment of lesbian but why not just say it? Something interesting to keep a look out for.

I am the Feminist who is Out to Ruin Your Life

Depictions of Feminists through the Lens of Youtube Comments
We all know youtube comments are disgusting when it comes to any type of video referencing feminists or talking about any social problems (racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia). my inspiration for this post is a gross youtuber Leafyishere. I wish he wasn't here but I guess thats life. I found out about his videos through my 16 year old cousin. She found his channel through her cousins and sadly finds him funny. So I watched one of his videos and he's gross and disgusting. His views on feminism are fucked up, and the way he talks about the youtubers he reacts to is beyond grotesque. I can't even finish any of his videos because they're all bullshit. The way he talks about feminism is through the basic antifeminists eyes which you can find in the youtube comments of his videos. Men who believe feminists are out to destroy men just dont know what feminism is. Intersectional feminism is the only feminism. We advocate for everyones rights regardless of who they are. Feminists still have to fight for women rights because it's still a problem. BUT it's not just for women, feminism is for everyone. I'm sick of seeing these people "destroying feminists and feminism" when all they do is reiterate the same points that everyone uses. Antifeminists are unoriginal cretins. All their argument dont make any sense and all they do is use one thing over and over again to justify their views that make no sense.

Introduction AKA Mermification

What Is This?
Upon revelation of my incredible insight going unseen by the world and some inspiration from SimplyNailogical (who talked about her blog who no one reads) I decided to create a blog. Now I know what you're thinking "Why the fuck do I care what you have to say?" And to that I decree "I dont know". Sometimes you just want a place to rant. A place to write and express yor feelings. So thats what I'm doing. Im finding a gorotto to store all of my valuable posts. So now introducing Maison Sirène the home of my thoughts. Here I'll write my opinion on certain topics and people. Hope you stay and find some interest in what I have to say. 
À demain! Biensoir.
