What does "bugland" mean?
The whole "political" argument mystifies me. There were women who identified as lesbian for political reasons in the 1970s. They called themselves "politicalesbians." But the ones who stayed lesbian had more than politics going for us. And I don't think politics-as-motivation has ever been a factor in men identifying as gay rather than bisexual. IME women who are attracted to men and to women, who make a permanent choice to interact sexually and romantically with other women sometimes identify as lesbian and sometimes as bisexual. But men in similar circumstances upon making that choice overwhelmingly identify as gay.
Oh, sorry, Bugland is the LJ name of my spouse and fic writing partner! :)
I've never heard of "politicalesbians" until now!
