LUG unplugged.

I want to thank the GenQ folks for discussing the "lesbian until graduation" urban legend ["Lesbian, for Now," October 10], though I am dismayed this fairy tale continues. It saddens me that 20 years after I entered college, the new generation still feels the need to discount their attractions for members of the same sex as mere explorations.

As long as both ends of the sexuality spectrum refuse to acknowledge that bisexuality is a completely valid orientation for many of us; that many people--even monogamous people-can love men at times, women at other times, something in between at other times; that we can do this without being in the midst of some "phase" that we will grow out of, girls will continue to discount some of their most wonderful life relationships.

I see the LUG phenomenon in the same way I see the "ex-gay" movement folks with their own agenda convince the susceptible that if they just believe hard enough, they can have a better life.

I'm looking forward to the day when LUG becomes a sad historical blip.
