You're neither unnatural, nor abominable, nor mad; you're as much a part of what people call nature as anyone else; only you're unexplained as yet -- you've not got your niche in creation.
~ Radclyffe Hall in The Well of Loneliness, 1928
Girls who put out are tramps. Girls who don't are ladies. This is, however, a rather archaic usage of the word. Should one of you boys happen upon a girl who doesn't put out, do not jump to the conclusion that you have found a lady. What you have probably found is a Lesbian.
~ Fran Lebowitz
Hick darling...I couldn't say je t'aime et je t'adore as I longed to do, but always remember I am saying it, that I go to sleep thinking of you.
~ Eleanor Roosevelt, in a letter to Lorena Hickok
There is nothing mixed up about a woman who loves women, who wants to have sex with them, or who identifies as a lesbian. It is society that is mixed up because it punishes people for not conforming to its gender stereotypes.
~ Edward Stein, editor of Forms of Desire: Sexual Orientation and the Social Constructionist Controversy
You can't type what a lesbian is. We're anything and everything. The one thing in common is that we make love to other women. So give up trying to limit us.
~ Amanda Bearse, actor, television director
We love men. We just don't want to see them naked.
~ Two Nice Girls
