I study art in a very small college where everyone knows everyone. The principal and the most important professor are two women who are married. Most of the other women professors are lesbians too.
I discovered that the art world, at least in my city, is kind of controlled by lesbian women. I also found out that some of my class mates are also lesbians.
I am a very feminine, pretty, girly, straight girl and I don´t think I fit here.
Most of those women dress like boys and I don´t think they take showers. And they always make fun of me because I have long blond hair, I paint my nails, I wear flowery dresses, heels, purses, I wear make up and pink blouses and things like that. My professor always makes fun of me and treats me like I´m a "dumb blonde". They also told me that taking care of my hair is not feminist, is degrading and it´s out of style.
I have nothing against lesbians, but why do they hate me? What can I do about this?

I'd be on my guard for anything that could be seen as sexual harassment.
Furthermore, I'd tell them that I refuse to comform to their uniform behavior and this is the way I'd like to express myself. That it is my right in a free country to celebrate my female identity and I'm absolutely shocked that these left wing lesbians of all people would lower themselves to this kind of bigoted, judgmental attitude.
I would add: " If you want the whole world to walk, talk and look alike, you should become a Nazi. As a matter of fact, Hitler wanted to be an artist. There's a reason he didn't become one, he lacked empathy and imagination."1
