Hi. I reverted your edit, changing from "lesbian" back to "homosexual." While they may prefer the former rather than the latter term, "homosexual" is the correct scientific term (as far as I'm aware). There is no homophobia intended. There is nothing shameful about being homosexual. Thanks. --113.203.203.175 (talk) 14:49, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

Also you are a Professor at MIT? That's pretty cool. --113.203.203.175 (talk) 14:51, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

I assume this is in reference to Nergis Mavalvala. There is nothing "incorrect" or "unscientific" about "lesbian", and per WP:IDENTITY we should use the term that the group/individual prefers and which is used by reliable sources. — Steven G. Johnson (talk) 21:22, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

OK. --113.203.218.168 (talk) 05:00, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
