a lot of girls use 'gay ' because if they use 'lesbian' like i did before i came out as trans masculine because they're scared its gonna get pointed out and they boys will try and rape them or try and sexually interest them when they are not attracted to boys in the first place. i'm pan and it took me quite awhile before i even figured that out, but when it comes down to it people that aren't straight are just queer in an all person way. - Mar 25 2020

It's all about how language develops--gay women are women who are attracted to women who may not feel comfortable with the term lesbian or not feel like it fully fits their identity!! the word lesbian has always been associated with women who love women, as it can be traced back to the poet sappho, often thought of as the original lesbian, who lived on the island of lesbos. lesbian just meant someone who came from lesbos, and because of the association with sappho it started being used to describe gay women in the sixties and seventies among the lesbian feminists. gay is a less gendered term because there aren't specific associations with the word--its just more widely used for men because groups of gay men adopted it in the early twentieth century.

tldr; gay women like women, they just use a different word - Mar 25 2020
