Lesbians join the services in higher numbers than gay males.
Some gay men join the military who are attracted to things very masculine. Some guys struggling with sexual or gender issues join the military to be around more normal “manly men” men in the hope of learning to be a straight man, or just to “be a man”. But that’s a smaller percentage. Most gay or bisexual or otherwise queer men are going to avoid the military and pursue school or a civilian career.
The lesbians are also more aggressive towards straight women than the gay men would be (for sure straight women may put up with being hit upon by a lesbian but a straight guy won’t put up with being hit on by a gay male).
Also lesbians have lover’s spats, sometimes leading up to physical fights, and sometimes there is physical abuse in the relationship that would be called clearly Domestic Violence if it were a Man-Woman couple.
So I would say it is not surprising that the numbers of lesbians discharged from the military are higher even if they are a smaller percentage overall.percentage

Also lesbians have lovers spats, sometimes leading up to physical fights, and sometimes there is physical abuse in the relationship that would be called clearly Domestic Violence if it were a Man-Woman couple. I've read of TWO civilian assaults within the past year. One in the UK, one US. The more masculine partner in both cases was trying to force pregnancy on a partner. Turkey baster with someones sperm in the UK case and forced sex, IIRC, in the second. Can we all say, 'Ewwwwwww'! There needs to be some real honesty out there. Judging by these two cases [and I believe both were repeated efforts!] there is some serious abuse going on between same sex couples. But that does not fit the meme, so we only hear about hetro male against hetero female. And I really feel sorry for any hetro man getting abused by a woman. They're totally screwed. Probably be hard to bring a case.
