thesbian

noun; blending
A name for a female who acts like a lesbian but is truly not one.
 
The word “thespian” bears a striking resemblance to the word “lesbian,” except for a few consonants. Because of this nearly-rhyming resemblance and the fact that a “thespian” is someone who acts or is in theater, the neologism “thesbian” was created.
Etymology : Formed by changing the “p” in “thespian” to a “b.” Can also possibly be a blending and clipping of “thespian” and “lesbian” due to their similar structure.
