Sapphic lawsuit

Happy May Day everybody! And Happy Beltane! You can read all about my fondness for this conglomeration of holidays and celebrations here.
I heard this on my clock radio this morning and just had to share. Apparently, the inhabitants of the Isle of Lesbos are peeved and embarrassed about the common use of the word "lesbian" to describe gay women — thus preventing them from calling themselves "Lesbians."
This lawsuit is like the inhabitants of the City of Chicago suing the filmmakers of "The Untouchables" for use of the phrase "the Chicago way."
