What do you mean with "hefemale"? Someone who was born with the sex male, or with the sex female? It's just a bit unclear what you mean. And which do they identify as, inside?
He's using it as an analogy of shemale, which is a very ugly transmisoginistic slur. He's using a she pronoun for a dude.
Does "lesbianism" really factor into this, especially concerning what pronoun to use about someone? It's a sexuality, not a gender.
I have seen interesting situations with lesbianism related to this. For example, a straight trans man whose community is mostly comprised of cis lesbians, who made a safer community before or during coming out. He's straight, but might feel a special relationship with the situation of being a lesbian. (I see this happen much more often with straight trans men than with straight trans women, though, because opression of trans men and trans women tends not to be analogous)
Another example is my E, who is NB, thinking of herself sometimes spontaneously as a lesbian, due to her connection with the slightly punky cis lesbian community around.
