Its about the society as a whole. The real question that should be asked is why there is a increase in the gay population world wide if not in
It is a result of stereotyping, and socially steering people.
I have a niece that I know for certain is NOT a lesbian, but she thinks she is one. She always liked boys, but she was a tomboy. She is stocky (not
fat), and her mom and dad are both cops, she grew up around guns, and martial arts, and she just enjoys things that boys enjoy, but she also liked
boys up until age 17 or 18. Some of her classmates accused her of being a lesbian, her mom worried about her being a lesbian and made it overly
abundantly clear that it was perfectly ok if she were one. She was steered
into being more socially accepted as a lesbian than that of a
hetero girl with manly interests.
Now, at age 23 or 24, she is not happy as a lesbian, she doesn't have good relationships with women, but she is convinced that she is a lesbian.
I have a high school classmate that is in a long-term relationship with a women, that started while they played college sports together, because the
whole team was basically lesbian. In high school the girl was completely hetero, and in talking to her, she is much more sexually attracted to men,
and she prefers the company of men, but at this point it is more convenient to stay in the lesbian relationship than it would to start over. She
loves her mate, and they even enjoy all types of sex, straight and bi, and they are best friends, but in the grand scheme of things, she realizes she
is probably not a lesbian.
I'm sure there are plenty of people that really are homosexual, but these days we actually steer the masculine females, or the feminine males in that
direction whether they want it or not!
