One thought on “UnSTRAIGHTening Lesbian: The Series Directory

  1. Sometimes I feel I missed my vocation as a librarian or lexicographer. I have an attachment to catalogs and lists which surely can’t be entirely healthy. But sometimes just putting things in a list can be very revealing.

    Some of the women in your list are people whom I “saw through” as soon as I became aware of them: Pat Califia, Gayle Rubin, Joan Nestle… Others I took at face value, or according to their own self-presentation: Mary Daly, for example. Others yet I valued for their ideas and writing, while never supposing that they were lesbian, except in some arcane sense of their own devising: Sheila Jeffreys, notably.

    “Thinking” left/feminist-leaning gay men of the 1970s and 80s were adept fence-sitters, to put the most practised yogi or those pillar-sitting Orthodox saints to shame. Typically we had friends and/or allies on both sides of the widening divide (no, be honest, Roman, the chasm that was already in place).

    It seems hard to credit in these days when everybody shoots their mouth off about everything, but we really did feel back then that our prime duty (apart from tea and sympathy) when women were fighting each other was to keep our mouths shut.

    Even now, I can’t feel that it would have been enormously helpful for us to “come out” en masse on your side. It might only have provided more ammunition for the PoliticaLesbians, or Straightbians as you call them.

    I do think fellow-feeling between lesbians and gay men is a real and valuable thing. But it’s often (and perhaps better) expressed in both directions by individual acts of solidarity than by mass-mobilization on each others’ account.

    READERS! Our lines are now open! Are these the words of an oh-so-sensitive and understanding gay flower nurtured in the rich loam of 70s feminism? Or of a mealy-mouthed old queen wriggling out of his betrayal of his sisters? ONLY YOU CAN DECIDE!
