On the other hand you have to be allowed to define yourself because no-one else has the evidence - I'm bisexual but even though I'm poly I don't have a girlfriend (to go with my boyfriends); if you just asked about who I'm dating now you wouldn't know that.

Or maybe if I decided that I hate all men and am never going to date them again then I would say that I'm a lesbian so that men didn't think I was available (even if I was attracted, physically, to me).

On the other hand I think "lesbian" ought to imply "woman seeking woman" or "woman who has a girlfriend" or "woman who would be seeking woman if she were interested but isn't right now" and not include "man" or "woman seeking man".

Life is full of messy little edge-cases, no?
