Take the Stigma away, and people will be inclined to say
*I will try that*
And that is what the article said as well. I guess one coudl go there and search “lesbian” to read it.
The thing is...in the 1980s you couldn’t even feature two women kissing on a regular TV program. People considered any woman wo went for another woman to be neurotic or that she had flaws so she couldn’t get a man.
In the 1990s is surfaced (maybe due to the mainstreaming of porn) as kinda trendy. Of course, only certain social circles had much experimentation going on. It was still fringe behavior.
Now, in the 21st. Century, lesbianism is quite fashionable — at least bisexuality. So it’s no wonder more women are trying it out — and one wonders if males are mre likely to experiment when they see the culture going gaga over female-female sexuality.
