With public acceptance of homosexuality increasing over the past fifty years, it has become easier for women who love women to be unafraid to declare their love before the world. At the same time, as other women see many of their friends, neighbours and family come out of the closet, many of them have come to wonder whether they themselves are not as straight as they thought they were. Many a woman who has hitherto considered herself heterosexual sees happy, healthy, attractive female couples in the media and in her daily wanderings, and all these understated yet unabashed displays of lesbianism stir feelings within her - feelings of a need that is not being met in her social dealings, a need that, she slowly comes to realize, can be satisfied only by the society of women who also know this need, and specifically by the companionship in spirit, mind and body of one other woman. It may take her a while to come to this realization, and she may resist it at first, but if she is honest with herself she will embrace her true nature and act joyfully and shamelessly upon it. Now this is what I wonder: is this need for comprehensive feminine companionship present in the entire female sex? Does every woman harbour it, whether she acknowledges it or not? Would every woman act upon it if only she recognized it as vital to her happiness? Put plainly, are all women lesbians? And should we be pleased or appalled by this possibility?
