DOWNLOAD ⚟ The Lesbian Heresy ë A must read book for anyone interested in new developments in lesbian theory Acclaimed feminist theorist Jeffreys challenges male supremacist racist assumptions of the sex industry, advocating the creation of a separate lesbian culture Dreadful I can see many young impressionable minds being swayed by it unfortunately I d struggle to pick out one point above any other, but the twisting of other people s words and beliefs for the purpose of creating something fitting their politics better ranks pretty highly Hateful piece which has been well deconstructed by many feminists already.Ugh.
