It all started with's Twitter account blocking Pink News — because Pink News tweeted against transphobia ...

Turns out Memoree Joelle, who co-owns and edits, is virulently opposed to any gender identities or sexual orientations other than the good, ol'-fashioned ones. Well, not too old-fashioned, because she overlooks the fact that much of the world thinks being gay or lesbian is a farce, too. She just hates the trans part.

Yes, it's 2019, and one of the Internet's biggest lesbian sites is run by a right-wing nut who is turned off by Pride and wants nothing to do with trans people. Charming.

Joelle — whose name sounds as made up as any sexual orientations or genders that disturb her — and Gaye Chapman own Lesbian Nation, which bought on March 1 of this year. This is not what I would call an auspicious roll-out of new ownership.

Unfollow and block would be my advice. If she weren't the owner, she'd be fired.
