Abstract:

The paper explores how young women in LBG Groups on MySpace and Facebook discuss their sexual identities. Many reject commonplace les-bi-gay labels. Four themes (Questioning, Exploration/Non-Exclusivity, Emotional Freedom, and Apolitical Individuality) emerged, together with conflicts between those who identify as lesbian and those who endorsed Non-Exclusivity.
