The lesbian masterdoc doesn't say once that bi or pansexuality isn't a thing. It's not pan or biphobic. And you seem to be misenterpreting those quotes. 'You can really, guinenly have warm, positive, strong feelings towards men and they can still be compulsory heterosexuality'. The author is saying that you could confuse a platonic connection with a romantic one, because of compulsory heterosexuality. And the second quote 'Do you love them because they're your boyfriend or are they your boyfriend because you love them?' is asking you to consider if you only have a boyfriend because you like the idea of having a boyfriend, and being able to tell other people and yourself that you're a boyfriend instead of actually enjoying being in a romantic relationship.
Thank you. I now realise any positive feeling I had towards a man, was in fact compulsory heterosexuality, and will end all relationships forthwith

It is biphobic, because it never at any point acknowledges that you can be attracted to women and men. Any sign of attraction towards women is evidence of lesbianism, any attraction towards men is ‘compulsory heterosexuality’. I’m glad you found it helpful on your journey, but it genuinely is flawed.

Also talking about ‘symptoms’ of being straight is...odd, at best.

It focuses on lesbianism! It doesn't need to acknowledge the existence of bisexuality. It's intended both for women who identify as straight as well as for women who identify as bisexual, and who are questioning how attracted to men they really are.
I think what the masterdoc tries to do is give you different interpretations of feelings and situations. Since it's aimed at women who think they are attracted to men, those alternative interpretations will always lean towards attraction to women and lack of attraction to men.

Have a look at https://www.google.com/amp/s/undivid...h-comphet/amp/.

Might be worth reflecting on why you’re so outraged that lesbians should acknowledge bi women as existing and sharing experiences too.

Exactly! It really annoys me when people say that the lesbian masterdoc is biphobic. 🙄 It was literally created for lesbians and those questioning their sexuality. It isn't supposed to invalidate people's attraction towards men, but lesbians aren't attracted to men so obviously it's going to be tailored towards women being attracted to other women.

It was created for people questioning their sexuality, who think they could be something other than straight. Women already confident that they're only attracted to other women would have no reason to read it.

That's why I put those questioning their sexuality as well.

....who may ultimately identify as bi or straight?

Yes! If they can't relate to it, they could either be bi or straight. Some people have also read it and then confirmed that they are bisexual as they couldn't relate to most of the experiences.

Masterdoc wants more lesbians to exist because it's already a small dating pool.

I'm genuinely not outraged, just in disbelief that you find it necessary for a document about being a lesbian to explicitly mention that bisexuality exists as well. Yes, bisexuality should be acknowledged by lesbians, but in a document intended for women who think that they might not be bisexual, I feel it's unnecessary to say "you might also be bisexual".
