I came out late in life (in my late 20s), not because I was afraid of society's repercussions, but because it was late in life that I became physically attracted to someone of the same sex. Prior then, I was only attracted to the opposite sex.
I am a lady who loves another lady. So, what does that make me? A lesbian? Do I have to label this? As the birds and bees even have labels, I have to label this--if only for the purpose of visibility that indeed a lady-loving-another-lady is but normal. Ok, call me a lesbian.
