Dear Gay Cataloging Mafia and other concerned parties:
The Lezbrian Yahoo! group is a talkin' about subject headings. Brenda J. Marston wonders why if "Bears (Gay culture)" has been adopted as a Library of Congress Subject Heading, why not "Butch," "Femme (Lesbian culture)," and "Butch and femme." Me, too!
