I’m not sure on lesbianism, and no, they aren’t just there to keep straight men happy doing porn.

You failed to explain what a "healthy" relationship is. I highly doubt that Heterosexuality is the epitome of "health" when in fact it involves children who needlessly suffer as a result of the variables in today's Society.
I think you are hanging out with too many people who have no respect for each other if you think that there are no "healthy" relationships to base your decisions upon. Who are your role models and how are you a role model for those around you?
As for me, I met my partner when I was 23 and he was 21. Now I am 47 and he is 45. He has his interests and I have mine, I am the nurturer and he is the provider. I cannot see this as "unhealthy" just because we are both male. Neither of us have "diseases" nor do we participate outside of our relationship on an intimate level. We are best friends as well as companions. We will be there when one or the other passes away, this is called "commitment". I cannot see anything healthier in a relationship than honesty, commitment, and respect.
Please do not say, "oh well then you are unique", because that is just not true. Many people are this way, both hetero and homo, as well as transgendered, you just haven't opened your eyes to it or you are meeting your fellow "unhealthy" folks in places that create unhealthy behaviors.
Most times when a person is unable to see healthy relationships around them it is because they themselves do not recognize how a healthy relationship works. As well, your criteria for "feeling female" by using "Macho Gay guys" as the example is so off base, how else would a Macho man feel but Manly!
I am sorry you feel the way you do, you disrespect yourself by not respecting others, especially saying that you would see a "benefit" if the individual had some kind of "hazardous genetic trait", now that is about the most "unhealthy" thing out of your mouth! You, my dear, are completely NOT capable of recognizing what is healthy based on that one sentence alone!
At this point I imagine you are going to tell me how "healthy" your own parent's relationship was/is, and how your own relationship/s are shining examples to the World. Please don't flatter yourself, you cannot polish a rough stone with a piece of tissue, so you can put that back in your pocket because I am not interested. Thank you very much!
