221cbakerstreet: Political lesbianism? As in choosing to be a lesbian for political reasons? You can't choose your sexual orientation. Implying that you can opens huge doors for those advocating that lgbt people just "choose to stop being gay" and that horrific things like those "gay cure" camps work.
A gay person can’t just wake up one day and decide to be straight. A transgender person can’t wake up one day and decide to be cisgender. It just don’t fucking work that way. There are studies that show that differences in the brain’s white matter that clash with a person’s genetic sex shows biological differences in transgender and cisgender individuals. There are also scientific differences between a heterosexual brain and a homosexual brain. It’s a physiological difference, not a choice.
Political lesbianism is a hateful, fraudulent ploy that has absolutely nothing to do with the LGBT+ community.
You can’t decide to be homosexual on a whim any more than you can “pray the gay away”.
