No heterosexual woman was ever "converted" to lesbianism. She cannot "become" something that is not in her nature. A woman who has led a heterosexual life and then lives as a lesbian is one who has abandoned a false front and begun to act upon her true feelings. She had always been attracted to women, but was unable or unwilling to recognize that fact. One mark of a healthy society is the ease with which a lesbian is free to recognize herself as a lesbian and to live as one, unimpeded by the prejudices of a few who, we hope, will become even fewer over time.
