Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought and read this book because I wanted to learn more about the sexuality of lesbians.

However, it didn't do the trick. Socialogist professor Renzetti writes several times that she herself is heterosexual, but you'd never know it from the book, though maybe it's just the "political correctness" of academe that's shining through.

One of my biggest problems with the book is that the author doesn't tell us whether by "abuse" she means aggressiveness as used by the ethologist Konrad Lorenz, or whether she actually means "hostility".

At any rate, the author is obviously personally hung up on the concepts of powerlessness and dependency, though that isn't of much interest to me.
