Gender Symbols Create Controversy?

Gender Symbols have been handed down for generations from ancient Roman times. The Mars symbol which represents male, and the Venus symbol with the cross represents the female. The symbol begins to create some controversy or culturally bias in the 1970’s when gay men began to double interlock the male symbols, to symbolize male homosexuality; and lesbians started double interlock the female symbols, a symbol used to represent lesbianism. There is some debate about the double interlocking female symbol representing sisterhood of women as well. Extreme lesbian feminists have taken it a step further and use three interlocking female symbols to show the rejection of male standards pertaining to monogamy.
