Do we really want to play into the hands of the bigots who say we are pseudo men, or can we, instead, challenge the kind of sexual objectification of women that is so prevalent in the world of heterosexual men that we are supposed to have left behind? Is liberation tantamount to behaving like some lesbian version of Hugh Heffner? Loading comments… Trouble loading? W hen I was a young lesbian feminist campaigning to overthrow patriarchy, what irked me most was the fact that some men would impose their own idiotic view of my sexuality on me, by asking if I would perform threesomes with them, or titillate them with a porny kissing display with my girlfriend. Some are lesbians, but none enjoyed their work and all despised their customers, whether seedy, horrible men or equally seedy women.

But how have we got to a situation where some of us are trying to enter such bastions of male privilege rather than campaign against the sexual exploitation of women?

Today it would seem that, for a number of lesbians, dissatisfaction and anger at being viewed as a male sex toy has been replaced with the desire to become as badly behaved as they are, paradoxically in the name of equality.
