LGBT: Who is the real "pretend lesbian" here?
A: A trans woman who prefers sex with women (whether or not they be trans) to sex with men.
B. A non-trans woman who does not especially enjoy sex with women (and whose past partners did not enjoy it much, either), but dislikes men too much to consider trying sex with them.

I think number two sounds suspiciously like a stereotype of the sort of strident lesbian feminist who would be concerned with number one calling herself a lesbian.
Number two may not be so much a pretend lesbian as a lesbian with a bad sex life who's solution isn't to go out and "experiment" with men, and the words lesbian (and woman) were originally defined in relation to cisgender women....so I guess I'm leaning toward number one if I absolutely must pick one.
