To be a lesbian in academe is to occupy the ghostly world of the Abject. We cannot be and therefore we can only manifest in easily recognized forms: androgyne, mannish lesbian, nice gay girl, ball-busting bitches, and asexual whatisits. Our only hope is to obtain the ever-enviable Phallus, but even this strategy is limited by the Phallus's tendency to detach as the slightest sign of femaleness.
