What is a lesbian, really? It seems like a simple question, but as anyone who's tried to navigate the queer straights of lesbian culture knows, it's actually a rather knotty conundrum. As a bisexual woman (though I usually go by "queer"), I heartily enjoyed this collection, as it makes a case for diversity, rather than conformity, in the lesbian/queer community. I don't agree with all the esssayists' viewpoints, but I welcome this collection, which makes the word "lesbian" more complicated than ever -- but also more fun. ( )
