Argument against Adrienne Rich

The author Adrienne Rich argues that all women fall under the lesbian contium. She thinks that all women have a lesbian love for the women in their life such as their kids or friends. Any love between to women is a lesbian love in her eyes. The article goes on to talk about how the exsistance of lesbians isnt in any important literature. Adrienne Rich feels that there is no excaping lesbianism in a heterosexism society. A society that tries to oppress lesbians is apparntly to Adriene impossible because all womenaly love is Lesbian love.

I personally disagree with this because i feel there are all different kinds of love and that love between to women does not have to be classfied as lesbianism. Society already tries to classify women and oppress them i feel Adrienne Rich does the same in her article by saying all women fall under the lesbian continuim. Women can be friends without there being some sort of lesbianis to it. Adrienne Rich would say i am wrong and argue her point that all women are under the conituim.

Good start but as we talked about in class, you need to present her argument FIRST to show you understand before you talk about how you disagree. :)
