An initial version of this article was given as the Division 44 Presidential Address at the Convention of the American Psychological Association, August 1988. For her invaluable help in making that first version come to life, I would like to thank my partner, Miriam Vogel, who got me through the first stage of my illness with love and courage, put up with my obsessing about writing this article for many months, then read the first draft and pointed out that which was still missing from my discussions. I'm also indebted to all of the presenters at the 1988 Advanced Feminist Therapy Institute, whose papers gave form and substance to my ideas. This version of the article owes a debt of gratitude to Jeanne Marecek, who invited its presence, and to two anonymous reviewers who made extremely helpful comments that allowed me to tie my own thinking into the feminist theoretical mainstream.

The use of full names in this article reflects a stylistic tradition of the Feminist Therapy Institute, which is to make the gender of a source visible to my readers. It is essential, in knowing how I came to my way of thinking, to know the perspectives of those who have influenced me.
The use of first-person pronouns to refer to lesbians and gay men is also a reflection of the feminist model of referring to one's own membership in a group about which one is writing.
