IF SUZI FEAY thinks The Lesbian Avengers haven't achieved much ("... Zap! They leave me cold", Real Life, 17 September), then why have they deserved so much discussion in her column, on TV, radio, and in newspapers?

To disagree with the means they use is one thing. However, surely the fact that as a result of their "zaps" issues relating to lesbians are being talked about openly, means that they have achieved at least part of their goal - increased visibility for lesbians.

Also, for Ms Feay to say that the age of consent (for gay men) hardly concerns lesbians is nonsensical. The fact that homosexuals do not have the same basic rights as heterosexuals should concern any thinking person.
