The most disturbing issue is that we worked in an academic setting and most of the women we worked with are women-of-color, and some have expressed that they are disgusted by her ignorant remarks.
She walks around with her chest poked out like a proud chicken, being overly-verbose and talking hot air. But she is respected and connected at this place of work . . . though everyone talks about her poor oral hygiene and turret-like behavior in which she butts in on every conversation.
Old lezzy was often paternalistic and condescending to other women, oft acting like the white hegemonic male she despised and protested against.
Overall, it was annoying how she conveniently used her lesbian card in discussions of oppression to get-in to the liberal club. In my opinion, a sexual identity that does not fit into hegemonic social codes is not an automatic admission into a political ideology that is "progressive."
I have plenty of black gay and lesbian friends who recant the insidious racist treatment they have encountered by whites who are LGBTQ. Then these same black folk are expected by LGBTQ'ers to support a movement that largely leaves them at the fringes.
However, let me get back to this foul-mouthed old lesbian. She is from the old school. One of those 70s feminists who declared women's liberation, but apparently forgot black, Latina, and Asian women had their own cultural hierarchies to contend in their own way. She operates from a paradigm that positioning her feminist consciousness as the key to liberation, when she performs daily acts of pure slavery.
You see in slavery, the best overseers were the blacks themselves. Black skin don't mean you kin.
Licking poon-poon is simply licking honey.
