I thought the attack was against homophobia, not sexism. I assumed 'susan' was a male. I
 did so because it is rare, in my experience, for an academic to write on a first name 
basis and without the 'coordinates' of position and institution.

>>When someone accuses another person of homophobia, let alone the rest, the someone 
has to let the person reply. 
I am not homophobic, on the contrary I 
suffered for a solidarity with a number 
of gay people in seeing John Greyson's book 
Queer Looks through to print. I have 
never been called homophobic and its a 
little hurtful. 

Though I recognise that in my method in 
teasing out reaction I brought it upon myself.
