For an episode from 1972 this approaches the subject of lesbianism, up to a point, with a progressive attitude.

It doesn't totally succeed despite some real attempts at fairness. Donna Mills gives a good performance as a young woman who feels conflict in her acceptance of her true nature. It being the 70's the writers have to present an option that perhaps an encounter with a man could make her straight. At least they have it be a man she truly cares for and not just some random man but rather than answering her question it only makes her more confused.

Not judgmental in it's perspective with most of the characters being welcoming and adult in their acceptance the episode isn't perfect but considering that at the time most portrayals of homosexuality were demonizing it's quite progressive.
