Eroticizing Women’s Subordination

“So, I think that as lesbians and as heterosexual women we all have a problem to confront and try to solve. I think we’ve got to do something about the eroticizing of our own subordination. It’s undermining to us personally, and it’s undermining to our relationships. It’s also undermining to us politically because it makes it difficult to fight male supremacy.

Only by attacking the construction of our sexuality can we move forward and actually make an impact upon the hetero-patriarchal society in which we live. So perhaps we can begin a dialogue, as lesbians and heterosexual women, about how we go further toward an egalitarian sexuality.”
