Are women more likely to have homosexual tendencies than men?


Recommended Posts

I've noticed several straight women who are in "It's complicated"-type relationships with other women.  Also, most of the women you see in lesbian porn are straight, whereas most straight men wouldn't be caught dead doing gay porn.  Do you think it's true that women are more likely to be bisexual than men?  Or are men just as likely to be bisexual, but don't act on it because male homosexuality is more taboo than female homosexuality?  What are your thoughts?

I needed a good laugh this morning: this topic and its assumptions provided that laugh.

I agree. I think OP is stirring up trouble for no good reason.

 

 

Just reiterating all of the above.

 

Yeah. Also not sure if this topic is appropriate for a "safe space" forum.

No.

IMHO, neither men nor women are more or less likely to be bisexual but perhaps men and women are less likely to be bisexual than gay or straight.

My "it's complicated" relationships are usually because we've had a falling out but I want to stay friends with the person... which is not sexual. I think that you're being a dude about it. Pull up your pants and get off the internet and go play in the big world. You just might learn something.

The only thing I can think of the respond to this is from Billy Madison...

 


Mr. Madison, what you've just said... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul...

Come on, I don't even watch lesbian porn, or any kind of porn for that matter.  This isn't some sexual fantasy or fetish that I have, so don't dismiss it as such.  It's just something I've observed from things other people have said and done.  For example, there are these two girls on YouTube who are personal friends with each other.  They both claim to be straight, but one of them made a tribute video to the other that showed the two of them making out and doing other stuff together with the song I'm in Heaven When You Kiss Me playing.  One of the commenters on the video asked if they were a lesbian couple and the author said "It's complicated.".  This is just one example.  I've never seen guys do this unless they were joking or trolling, and I was just wondering why.

You need to get out more.

 

I don't think you will get a clear picture just from observation anyways.  Males and females sometimes get bullied for perceived sexual orientation.

You can ask us to accept one or the other of the above statements, but not both if you want to be taken seriously.  The first is an unsubstantiated gross generalization masquerading as an observation that, if the second is true, you have not in fact made.  Let's boil this down:  You saw a couple of "It's complicated" statuses, noticed that they were between women, made wild, baseless, speculative assumptions about the cause (i.e., pulled them out of your ass), guessed randomly about the reality of the pornographic film industry, and then generalized about why "guys don't do this".  Which, in fact, they sometimes do.  Your comprehensive "sampling" of YouTube simply didn't reveal any, which is unsurprising because your YouTube content-of-choice appears to be girl-on-girl as you cite the video as "just one example" of several that you are evidently aware of.  Though you don't watch that sort of thing.

 

But I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, and treat your question as though it was the result of a credible thought process.  Why do you not see guys claiming "It's complicated" as often as women?  Answer: a) Because you're not looking in the right places; and b) Because men by and large tend to simplify their response to emotion.  To the average man, relationships aren't "complicated" in the way that they are for women because they don't tend to be as in touch with their emotions, they don't tend to analyze them in the same way, and they tend not to have the same level of empathy.  Note that I qualify all of the above with "tend to" because it varies by individual.

 

Now it's dismissed.

I imagine that most people are at least a little bisexual. There probably is more of a taboo about man on man action because most of the homophobic dickheads are men who protest too much (reaction formation) while being turned on by the idea of lesbians. A lot of male on male violence is caused by repressed homosexuality. They don't really want to kick that guy's arse, they really want do other things with his posterior. There's always something slightly homoerotic about sports like boxing and wrestling. This could all be true for all I know.

Let me phrase it this way: I've seen porn (as has anyone who uses the Internet), and I've seen lesbian porn.  That doesn't mean I regularly watch it or am turned on by it.  There's a difference between witnessing something and actually enjoying it sexually.  I've seen 2 Girls 1 Cup, but that doesn't mean I'm a coprophile.  I've seen Two Guys One Horse, but that doesn't mean I'm into bestiality.  Get the picture?

I have spent several minutes trying to determine if there is anything in the entire Cosmos that could conceivably interest me less than what learning what titillates you.  So far, nothing comes to mind.

 

In the first response to this thread, Wooster gave a link to information about the studies into human sexuality by Kinsey et. al.  I recommend it to you.  Using that link, you can find numerous useful and well-researched sources more likely to satisfy your curiosity on this particular topic.  As this thread doesn't appear to have anything to do with being MI, and because most of the respondents have indicated that they find it somewhere on the spectrum between ludicrous and idiotic, we're done here.
