How to use "Lesbianism" in context?

Lesbianism refers to sexual attraction and behavior between women. It is thought to have its roots in the pre-modern idea of the feminine 'other' and is seen as a unique expression of women's sexuality. While most lesbians identify as female, there are also transgender and gender non-conforming lesbians. Lesbians often face discrimination and violence from both their heterosexual and lesbian peers. However, lesbians are visible and vocal innovators and advocates for LGBTQ rights.
