    So I was having lunch with my friend who's a lesbian. She said gay men have it easier than lesbians..which totally baffled me. She then said gay men can be very nasty towards lesbians... And said some even consider lesbians as second class citizens within the gay community.
    She then says Transvestites are considered even lower.

    Now Ive never noticed this but has anyone else. If anything I think all members of the gay community have it equally as rough.

    And at the same time, I have seen lesbians be rude to gay men or men in general. I love my lesbian friends, but at the same time, I have been pushed around at lesbian clubs and treated like shit.

    I definitely wouldn't consider lesbians to be second class citizens. As for transvestites (do people still use this word?), I wouldn't consider that either. Some of the ones that I have met have had some seriously hot boyfriends. But I am not going to sugarcoat, and say that depends on the level of work put into it. Meaning, if you look like one of the contestants of RuPaul's Drag Race as opposed to looking like a dude in a dress (I've seen this, too.)

    Lesbians are usually man hating cunts. Ive met very few that are nice just to be nice.

    Trannys? Meh...>Who cares?

    Second class???

    They're accepted into society more than gay men, guys dig two chicks, so chicks dig two chicks because guys do.

    Pretty much every guy I went to school with would fight me on this, that lesbians were okay and gay men weren't, Complete contrition. But they said it was because two feminine sexes can combine, where two masculine sexes can't because it clashes haha. Dickheads.

    There's a big difference between the fantasy of hot lesbians, and the reality of actual lesbians... I don't think they are accepted as much as pop culture would make it seem.

    @OP question:
    I wouldn't say anyone is considered lower on the totem pole... but some groups are minorities and possibly less accepted or understood by some..

    I think gay men (Well, humans in general) tend to shun people with different attractions... Fear of the "other", I guess?
    Also - I think some lesbians have something to prove because they are the minority among minorities, so they can be pushy or defensive...

    Transsexuals...? Yes, definitely. The smallest minority, and the hardest for people to understand.
