Well at least this trend can be 'washed off' so to speak.
The tattoo trend is less reversible.

Empty Signal Gray: Obviously faking it.

I still don't get why some (see? I said some) lesbians are attracted to women who look like men. Is it just the vagina? Is that what they want? Would a man with a vagina be acceptable?

I don't get the emotional devastation thing. I have lesbian friends and they find fake lesbians mildly annoying, but it's not like they were crushed that Britney Spears kissed Madonna then both went back to their regular schedule of dicking. I think everyone knows non-celeb straight girls who kiss eachother are just doing it for attention... to each her own. It's not like these girls are really hooking up with actual lesbians, or have any interest in that.

What I don't understand is why people have a problem with girls kissing girls, but don't have a problem with strip clubs.

Yes, they're not actual lesbians. But the woman grinding her ass into your crotch dosn't actually want to have sex with you.

Just enjoy the show.

Historically, before the 1970s or so, it was genuinely dangerous for two female-looking women to be seen doing couple things, like living together in the same 1-bedroom apartment, etc. So one traditionally was butch in order to either seem tough or actually cause casual observers to think it was a normal guy/girl couple. At least that's the official story... it kinda makes sense. But lesbians really are all about the vagina, too. A girl doesn't have to look stereotypically feminine to be attractive.

Bah-- I doubt any "emotional destruction" is going on. Really, the trend is fairly well documented and has been around for a while. I'm sure actual gays and bi's are annoyed a bit, but it's really just funny after a while.

I think the most entertaining thing-- especially for folks like me around 30 whose friends are all in the "settling down" era-- are seeing girls who went through the "OMG, I think I like girls! I are experimental and cutting edge! Watch me make out with this girl while my progressively flaming gay friend makes jokes about us!" now married to some redneck in a trailer with a "little one" in one hand and a useless liberal arts degree in the other.

I think the phrase is: "we desperately need attention and to be viewed as setting trends so pay attention to us and what we're doing, oh, do, do... even if it's just wadding ourselves up in skanky sheets and diddling each other and kissing in front of cameras."

Waiting for the shutter monkey from ET doesn't make it a trend any more than having a logo on the screen while some GOP shill in a nice suit reads propaganda in front of a camera makes FOX news, news.

Nobody's getting devastated, but the Concern Troll Media tm needs something to wring its hands about. Notice nobody out there is committing suicide or anything. My guess is, the writer needed an article sold, perhaps to finance a shiny new toy. Move along, nothing to see here.

Drew Curtis lives in Kentucky. George Clooney lives in Kentucky. In the "Ocean's Eleven" remake, George Clooney stole millions of dollars from a casino. Are you going to let Drew Curtis steal the election?

Paid for by Cyclones against dumb posters who can't do their own research.

//According to Fundrace.org, Drew has NOT donated 80 grand to McCain or the Republican party.

Some of these AW girls are hooking up with real lesbians to get attention, the lesbian girl thinks she really loves them but the other person only loves them like she loves a new fashion trend. Then when the faker decides "Well I've had enough of trying out this girl thing, back to my normal schedule of men" and she dumps the lesbian girl like she was a clothing item that went out of style. Reminds me of some white girls who would date black guys just to "shock" their conservative parents back when that actually was considered shocking.

They're angry about the penis.

That's why gays are so cheery. They're HAPPY about the penis. Really happy. You could even say they're GAY about the penis.

littlett's: I still don't get why some (see? I said some) lesbians are attracted to women who look like men.

The reason some lesbians "look like men" is they are not trying to be attractive to men. That is, any otherwise unremarkable human being with easy to maintain hair, no makeup and comfortable and practical clothing and shoes will tend to look like a man because that is how men generally present themselves.

Oh_Enough_Already: Fundamentally the problem is with society's insistence on labeling people and/or pigeon holing them into this or that category.

Pretty much. Sexuality is complex and we are creatures that hate complexity so we try to simplify everything to make it easier. I would say just learn to accept people for who they are, but really, in a culture that feeds people's narcissism and vanity to the point where they care too goddamn much about having the whitest teeth and the tannest skin, no matter how ineffective or dangerous the methods they use to achieve those results are, I think the last thing a lot of people in the US want is other people even realizing who they really are past the superficial qualities.

Well, the guy was an idiot. I'm pretty sure he was a flaming queen just for the shock value-- there's always a few of those hanging around any group that happens to be handy. "whee! look at me, I'm mincing!" Jeez.

"Experimentation is healthy - what it leads to can sometimes be a great thing, but you need to wonder what effect [fake lesbians] are having on women," said Mr Duggan, co-founder of gay and lesbian site SameSame.

"Women who pretend to be lesbians do it to titillate men."


And how the fark does a gay guy know that?

Craigslist casual sex personals are a weird study of sexuality. In "men for men", most of the guys are married or have girlfriends. There are actual openly gay guys there, yeah, but the average guy there is deeply in the closet. I think married women would find the truth rather shocking... and would really be suspicious the next time their husband has to "go in to work" for 2 hours on a Friday night.

Then on the "female for female" ones, which are surprisingly active, it is all bisexual girls, usually with boyfriends who may or may not be wanting to watch or participate, but you get the impression that at least 50% of the women who post there are do it mostly because their boyfriend wants them to. There are absolutely no actual lesbians on those boards, because lesbians don't really look for flings like that.

I have always found that ^perplexing. I get the part that some women are attracted to other women. I don't get the part where the women they are attracted to, are just a really poor knockoff of a typical man.

Women, if you are going to be attracted to women, why not select a very attractive very feminie woman?

Huracan1: Women, if you are going to be attracted to women, why not select a very attractive very feminie woman?

The odd thing is, most straight women are attracted to very feminine looking women. My wife and I agree on what we think makes a woman hot. If it was about what women were attracted to, then wouldn't my wife be attracted to butch women?

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: The reason some lesbians "look like men" is they are not trying to be attractive to men. That is, any otherwise unremarkable human being with easy to maintain hair, no makeup and comfortable and practical clothing and shoes will tend to look like a man because that is how men generally present themselves.

I'm a man, but I don't wear flannel or boots all the time. I've never met a butch lesbian who dresses like any man I know.
