It’s that time again for me to reach into the mail bag and pull out another winning dumb question of the day. It’s an important question so I am giving it top billing and not relegating it to the Dumb Question of the Day Page section:
Q: Do lesbians love straight women?
Funny thing about lesbians; can’t always stereotype them, even if they identify as a members of one the 13 tribes of Lesbos and as a member of a tribe, dress alike, have the same haircuts, drink the same drinks, wear the same clothes, same shoes, do the same dances, use the same words, use the same pick-up lines: underneath all that, they are individuals and not always predictable.
Some lesbians are attracted to straight women only until they get them. Some lesbians are addicted to straight women in every sense of the word addicted.
And some lesbians fall in love with a straight woman and it works because straight woman wasn’t so straight after all and they live happily ever after in their very own version a couple creating a life and love together. It turns out that while straight and lesbian are important — as labels of identity; declaration, separation and cloaks of not-so-invisibility — sometimes two women, one lesbian the other straight, both of whom have lived and loved for a while, run into each other and transcend labels and identities and somehow end up spending the rest of their lives together in respect and love able to move fluidly in all tribal settings and worlds. Go figure.
Truth is, lesbians love women: most will choose their love from the roving bands or wandering loners of women who happen to lesbians. Simple as that.
On the less than simple side of it, there are lesbians who are curiously only attracted to straight women. Is it an ego thing? An emotional reconstruction thing?
And, if said lesbians actually get and keep straight women, are those straight women still straight? And will those lesbians who found those supposedly straight women still be interested if their prey are no longer straight?
It is a question being discussed in an emerging 14th lesbian tribe that crosses all tribes, with the working tribal name of the Lestraight lesbian. They are lesbians who seem to only want straight women for one of two reasons: they only want sex and the more challenging it is to bed straight women, the better, or they want women who are unavailable, inaccessible, and not likely to ever be anything but undecided and unattainable. Discussions on the style of dress and hair are proving to be challenging, so it may take a while before this tribe is ready to declare itself.
Stay tuned for updates on this developing lesbian story from yours truly.
