A lesbian is a woman who loves women.
A lesbian is a woman who likes women. Accordingly, the lesbian is colloquially referred to by many as the "opposite" of the gay man.

Unfortunately, many people still think that in lesbian relationships, for example, there always has to be a partner who "replaces" the male partner.

Incidentally, the term "lesbian" comes from the Greek History. The poet Sappho is said to have lived on the island of Lesbos.
