Quote about Thank God I'm a Lesbian

"The strength [of Thank God I'm a Lesbian] lies in the representation of the range of reactions and responses to each issue, even within the narrow parameters of the interviewees chosen -- hypereducated and erudite as they all are. The overall impression is that the lesbian community consists of many, often conflicting, perspectives and opinions and that the tyranny of the politically correct has not, contrary to popular (lesbian) belief, thoroughly colonized our minds."
-- Alisa Lebow (source)
