a sexological theory that explains the result of same-sex desire is from a person’s reversed “physical, emotional, or psychological” gender (Bronski, 95).

Theories of inversion proposed the idea about a “third sex” or “invert,” and thus manifested stereotypes towards “the mannish lesbian and the effeminate homosexual” (Bronski, 96).
