their heads that the illustrious Hobart, who seemed so affectionate to 

pretty women, must be different from what she appeared." This passage is 

interesting because it shows us how rare was the exception. A century 

later, however, homosexuality among English women seems to have been 

regarded by the French as common, and Bacchaumont, on January 1, 1773, 

when recording that Mlle. Heinel of the Opera was settling in England, 

added: "Her taste for women will there find attractive satisfaction, for 

though Paris furnishes many tribades it is said that London is herein 

superior." 

 

[181] "I believe," writes a well-informed American correspondent, "that 

sexual inversion is increasing among Americans--both men and women--and 

the obvious reasons are: first, the growing independence of the women, 

their lessening need for marriage; secondly, the nervous strain that 

business competition has brought upon the whole nation. In a word, the 

rapidly increasing masculinity in women and the unhealthy nervous systems 

of the men offer the ideal factors for the production of sexual inversion 

in their children." 

 

[182] Homosexual women, like homosexual men, now insert advertisements in 

the newspapers, seeking a "friend." Naecke ("Zeitungsannoncen von 

weiblichen Homosexuellen," _Archiv fuer Kriminal-Anthropologie_, 1902, p. 

225) brought together from Munich newspapers a collection of such 

advertisements, most of which were fairly unambiguous: "Actress with 

modern ideas desires to know rich lady with similar views, for the sake of 

friendly relations, etc.;" "Young lady of 19, a pretty blonde, seeks 

another like herself for walks, theatre, etc.," and so on.
