Abstract
This paper is an attempt to understand what was involved in the disagreements during the 1970s over the feminist status of lesbianism. The 'meaning' was the meaning of lesbianism; the fights revolved around the personal/political dichotomy, whether lesbianism was a matter of individual desire, or whether it was a political choice. It discusses two 1974 issues of the Australian feminist journal, Refractory Girl, as a case study illustrating the debate.
