Abstract
This short article suggests that a major reason for the conflicts within lesbian feminism in the 1970s and 1980s was a radical disagreement about the meaning of lesbianism, about whether it was personal desire or political choice. The article argues that in fact lesbianism was both desire and politics because the personal is political. Although it is not possible to decide to be a lesbian, many women did change their sexual preference under the influence of feminism.
