Foreign Policy Passport has this interesting piece:
I am not making this up. Some people from the Greek island of Lesbos are suing to prevent a gay rights group from using the word "lesbian":
The man spearheading the case, publisher Dimitris Lambrou, claims that international dominance of the word in its sexual context violates the human rights of the islanders, and disgraces them around the world.
He says it causes daily problems to the social life of Lesbos's inhabitants.
