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.

Yep, there always has to be some celebrity name dropping for the lowest common denominator crowd to be able to relate.
I think homosexuality is, at it's base, narcissism.
Exactly. If homosexuality were genetic, all the homos would be gone within a couple of generations.
But it's not genetic. It's a mental disorder. Homos have to be created by society every generation.
In your dreams, CNN.
NIXON'S THE ONE
PLAYING THE ROLE OF THE WOMAN
Hasbians!!!! I love it.
“Single, celibate, and solvent are the watchwords through the early 21st century.”
“theyve been given over to their perversion/sin.”
Professing to be wise, they’ve become fools.
“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.”
I see it constantly (San Francisco). The reason is simple, they are in love with themselves.
I don’t blame them. Most women are more attractive. I wouldn’t want to crawl in bed with some guy’s hairy @$$.
Sounds like Kelly put on some weight. All women forgive other women for getting fat, because somewhere, deep, they all know it could, and eventually will, be them too. (And yes, I know I'm about to be torched by the girls)
Sorry, but if true (and I always doubt Newspaper accounts), then it must be a more permissive and acceptance by society of what is considered non-normal relationships. It probably is just more liberal thoughts about sex in general - and anywhere you can get it is just fine... Not a good sign for a long-lasting society - but, most are on the outs anyway!
We will either be gone or Muslim in another 50 years so might as well have your fun while you can...(standard bull of the left)...
Sure, blame the men.
LOL! Good to see the sarcasm there.
LoL nothing can replace men, and their sweet smell!! Hahaha
I have a similar story— was told by a guy that women know what women want...the same guy thinks it’s gross to see 2 guys together.
Ditto. Ick ick ick!
It may be far less taboo for women to be bi in your world but as a woman, it grosses me out. My husband always says, two homo guys, ewww, two girls going at it, not so ewww. For me, the female thing is ickier. Same sex is just icky all around.
Good for them! Helps me sort out the idiots.
I am more in the line of thought that the more it’s socially acceptable, the more they become public..
Uhoh, we are all on the “rightwing extemist list”
Yep it is sick and it is likely to get sicker. I read about this kind of thing in the early 90s so this isn’t new research. The activists just were trying their best to sell the idea that they were born homosexual so the science didn’t matter but it never does with the left. Homosexuals and their cohorts are still just as screwed up as studies prior to the 70s showed them to be. The difference is they have succeeded through a combination of pornography encouraging acceptance of lesbianism by men, feminism offering up rhetoric aimed at making women more hostile to men, and activism aimed to shape attitudes based on emotionalism rather than reason.
I really hate the left and stuff like this reminds me exactly why. They and their cohorts have managed to nearly destroy the greatest nation on earth. They have compromised our morality and sense of personal dignity and thoroughly corrupted ideas about freedom and responsibility. They are digging a grave for America.
LOL! No torching here. Just lovin’ that broad brush you’re using ;)
Yeah that is true.
Oh that line of arguing by men drives me crazy. Personally, I think when they take that stand, it’s not based on religious morals. I call the male friends and family members who say that it’s not so gross to see 2 women together hypocrites, and that they truly are not against homosexuality. They enjoy seeing 2 women together as long as they are pretty. I tell them to open the bible..
I am not against admiring beauty—but all forms of homosexuality is against God’s law, let alone gross!!! I guess it’s a battle in their minds— IE: some sins are worse than others.
I teach in an urban high school. Last year two hotties had a tongue fight EVERY day in front of my room before period 5. It made life a tiny bit better.
I want to make sure I've got this right: You enjoyed watching minors engage in lesbian behavior?
I thinke that’s what he or she said. That’s the way I took it.
Genghis—i think you just dug yourself into a hole you can’t get out of—
I know what you mean deannadurbin. You and Judy Garland were big pals but you never would have gone for this.
If you taught my kids, and I found out you allowed that, you would not forget my name.
Of course he did say “highschool”, so maybe the students were 18—and couldn’t be seen by the minors and he was the fav hip teach because he allowed certain rules to be broken.
You’re a high school teacher? I have read that education majors have the lowest SAT scores. Your crass, stupid comment doesn’t cast any doubt on that statistic.
Seems like it’s gotten worse. I only got out three years ago and knew some openly gay relationships. If they had done anything like that in public... I even with my friends who were girls, (which I was very affection too) was told to back of, even though there was nothing wrong with it. (though I did hear about some questionable activities in the bathroom between girls. Never did hear if they had anything on them...)
Though I will say I’m going to enjoy this smackdown.
/get apple pieces and watches
Graduated of high school I mean. Mine was also a suburb, and in a red area, so that might have contributed.
(Sorry four AM... forget to add the most important facts)
Tell me about it!
My wife spends so much shower time shaving me I feel like a poodle!
My wife just tells me, “I want the hair gone. I don’t wanna know how or where. Just gone.”
huh? Oh, wait, it’s CNN.
My kids knew about some open relationships too—and the guys who were openly gay were not picked on. They didn’t do the PDA in school.
You mean why John Lennon got six bullets in the chest, and Yoko was right next to him and not a single bullet?
I will say there is definately a double standard.
Two women don’t even have to be lesbian to occasionally want to be with other women.
But when it comes to guys, as The Diceman said. “You either ...., or you do not......, there is no in-between.”
Years ago, when I was studying to be a clinical psychologist, I remember my clinical supervisor making the extremely politically incorrect remark that she'd never met a homosexual whose homosexuality didn't develop out of some sort of psychological trauma or severe mental illness.
My ears are bleeding...and it’s just a picture
One wonders if they're leaving Oprah-cized "men" behind; trading a faux-woman for the real thing.
I’ll never understand why a woman would want another woman especially if she’s butch.. I mean why be with someone that looks like a man but doesn’t have the package? That’s like having a blow up doll with out the holes. Crazy.
