One question that is posed to Omicron Epsilon Pi Sorority Incorporated is why are we a strictly lesbian organization? ?Some bisexual as well as lesbian women feel this is reverse discrimination towards bisexual and heterosexual women. This is not the case in any way.
Omicron Epsilon Pi was established to uplift the lesbian community as well as the female community as a whole. The lesbian community is an under represented community. We are stereotyped as well as ostracized because of something we can’t help. Omicron Epsilon Pi is a haven for lesbian women where they can fully be accepted without the fear of being ostracized or stereotyped.
Omicron Epsilon Pi understands that bisexual women have to come out as well as lesbians do. Omicron Epsilon Pi also understands that some bisexual women can maintain long lasting and monogamous relationships with women and be happy. Omicron Epsilon Pi also understands that some lesbians use the mask of being bisexual to gain an easier acceptance into society. We understand that bisexual women face prejudices as well as lesbians do.
With all this said lesbians have a different life than that of bisexual women. Lesbians don’t have a choice when it comes to whom we love. We are destined to love the same sex regardless of how society may feel. Many feel that the sexual and emotional encounters that women have with each other is what classifies them as being a lesbian. That is only a minor part of being a lesbian. Lesbianism is an inborn desire to be close to a woman that you can’t wholly understand or at times accept. Lesbianism is loving a woman as you love yourself and wanting the world for the both of you. Lesbianism is knowing and understanding that you can’t be happy with a man because he can never complete you as a woman can. Lesbianism is knowing that being with a woman is not wrong and that we are a who we are. Which makes us inherently different from bisexual and heterosexual women by definition. Omicron Epsilon Pi was founded to celebrate the triumphs and tragedies of lesbianism. And this is why we are a sisterhood for lesbians.
