Why women are leaving men for other women....
CNN ^ | April 23rd, 2009

Expert: More women are in relationships with other women

Some leave husbands or boyfriends for other women

Researchers study whether women's sexuality is less fixed than men's

Professor: Sexual fluidity is not something women can control Lately, a new kind of sisterly love seems to be in the air. In the past few years, Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon left a boyfriend after a decade and a half and started dating a woman (and talked openly about it).

Certainly nothing is new about women having sex with women, but we've arrived at a moment in the popular culture when it all suddenly seems almost fashionable -- or at least, acceptable.

Statistics on how many women have traded boyfriends and husbands for girlfriends are hard to come by. Although the U.S. Census Bureau keeps track of married, divorced, single, and even same-sex partners living together, it doesn't look for the stories behind those numbers.

But experts like Binnie Klein, a Connecticut-based psychotherapist and lecturer in Yale's department of psychiatry, agree that alternative relationships are on the rise.

I can see for companionship but why must everything have to be about sex? This country is sick.

Agreed. Why is everything sexualized in some way. So now we are supposed to be liberal and open and tolerant of women leaving oppressive relationships with men and finding their new found freedom with loving women. Sheesh.........

That’s why. It’s the thing to do. Like saying “I have black friends!!!” in the 70s.

There will be a bunch of Hasbians in about 10 years when the fashion statement wears off.

It’s because American men have become so feminized by the liberal culture that women have no need for them. John Wayne is out, Leonardo DiCaprio is in.

Anecotes, celebrities, more open and out of the closet. A fad maybe, but I'll believe it is a trend when I see the data.

BTW it is interesting how the media groupies all jump on the concept of "gender fluidity." People choosing which set of genitals to tickle. This has got to be troubling to the hardcore homosexual lobby, who have been shrieking and cawing for years that being queer "is not a choice."

One almost always looks like a man. Short man haircut, masculine dress, always in pants, and vests, and big shoes or boots. Wallets, they like wallets.

CNN and other lib media outlets find some minor minor trend or a few examples in urban areas or among their cocktail party circuit and extrapolate it to the entire country. Just garbage.

Boycott CNN and their related companies AOL, Time Warner, Golf Magazine, Money mag, Sports illust, ESPN, TUrner, etc etc.

Being lesbian is simply a political statement against men (and a means of advancement in the Democratic Party). Kind of like a hazing for the feminists to separate the men from the boys (or in this case, women from the girls). That simple.

For guys, it’s a sick mind, often the result of abusive adults or neglectful parents (i.e., parents that were more interested in keep up with the Jones, rather then telling their sissy-kid to suck it up and be a man).

In any case, the end result is usually the same, a weakening and then extermination of a society within 2 generations.

Ewwwww. But I was told by a friend that ‘only a woman knows how to love a woman.’ As a woman, I’m not so sure about that.

For me, the fun of a relationship . . . intrigue of a relationship . . . enjoyment of a relationship . . . is the initial time the male pheromone overpowers my senses . . . .

You know the cartoon where the food odor causes the cartoon character to float to the source of that odor. It’s very similar except I don’t actually float.

There is something sexually stimulating about the smell of a man when he has his arms around me.

I need a cold shower.

Everything and everyone is relative

It is strange to me though, that when you see two homosexuals, one looks rather masculine and the other is rather feminine. Doesn't seem to matter whether they are male or female couples.

This is totally disgusting. I don't know, but I have the feeling that this is just media hype to further their agenda to advance the acceptance of homosexual marriage and the promotion of deviancy.

I can't imagine real women doing this, or for that matter a real man having sex with another man. I like a man who looks like a real man. I don't even like girly guys like Leonardo Di Caprio or even Brat Pitt.

"When a taboo is lifted or diminished, it's going to leave people freer to pursue things," she says.

I thought the narrative was that increased acceptance of homosexuality and lesbianism wouldn't encourage more of it. Apparently that was a lie.

There are a lot of jerks out there - guys I mean. I think some women just get burned out dealing with it.

Problem is....how do you get past the part that you’re having sex with a woman?

I once worked with gay guys in a building that was occupied by a lot of lesbians. One of the gay guys looked just like Mr. Clean. So one day one of the cute lesbians was walking by our window and I watched her and then said “I just can’t imagine making love with a woman”. There was about a 10 second pause and then Mr. Clean said “neither can I”.

They are confused by the feminist lie that men and women are essentially the same. When men do not react like women, then they assume that the man is willfully frustrating them. So rather than learn HOW to deal with men, they latch onto a like-minded woman. It works with straight people. A guy or gal can’t get along with one person and rather than work things out looks for someone else. And all combinations and permutations of the above. Life aint easy.

Bingo. Once the stigma of immorality and irresponsibility is erased, hedonism becomes a runaway train.

"We found that women's sexual desire is less rigidly directed toward a particular sex, as compared with men's, and it's more changeable over time," says the study's senior researcher, J. Michael Bailey, Ph.D. "These findings likely represent a fundamental difference between men's and women's brains."

He is safe to say this because of the politically protected speech on gay topics.

But if he had said exactly the same thing ("These findings likely represent a fundamental difference between men's and women's brains.") about math scores, or engineering skills, or anything else, he would be burned at the stake.

It’s not surprising to me at all. I think it’s far less taboo for women to be bisexual than it is for men. Women are all about having options so why should they limit themselves to only half the population?

Sexual fluidity is not something women can control...

Horse Hockey. They're looking for the next taboo. Leaving their boyfriends or husbands for another man is so passe, you understand, and not at all the 'sophisticated' thing to do.

This must not be new - like the 1930’s Cole Porter song says, “When mothers pack and leave poor father/Because they decide they’d rather be tennis pros/ anything goes.” In context of the song, the “tennis pros” bit sounds suspicious!

what is really bizarre is the homosexual couples that look identical. As if they were dating themselves. Very, very odd and I have seen it quite often.
