which is even funnier because she’s the reason lesbians are called lesbians. she was know as sappho of lesbos and her poems were all about her love for women

Can people stop erasing the fact that Sappho wrote poetry about her love for men too? (She also wrote several poems where we don’t know the gender of the person she was talking about.) If we’re going to apply anachronistic labels to people, can we at least not erase bisexuality? Please?
Do we actually have any love poems directed to men where she names herself explicitly as the one in love? I don’t think we do (correct me if I’m wrong). Poems like “sweet mother, I cannot work the loom” may be written in the voice of another person. It’s really hard to tell since most of her stuff is so fragmentary.
