Why do people treat homosexual and bisexual men different from homosexual and bisexual women? Is there really a difference between the two, or it all based on community and societal perception? What I've noticed or questioned..... Bisexuality is accepted among women, but not men. Men will knowingly accept women who been with other women, even be turned on by it; but a woman will not accept a bisexual man. Once you've crossed the line of sleeping with a man, you're deemed 'homo' and that's it. No women wants a man who was slept with another man. Is there even such a thing as a bisexual man? Or is that just a stop over to full fledge homosexuality? Lesbian has been perverted for male pleasure. Not no man will accept that a woman can be a full fledged lesbian - either they think they she will go 'both ways', do a 3some, or engage with another women for their own pleasure. Do this trivialize 'true' lesbianism? Are men threatened by homosexual women and have to put in the context of patriarchy where they can filter and control it? Why is a gay man viewed in the context of being a 'soft like a female' and 'well if you gonna be a woman, I'm gonna treat you like a woman!' and are often raped by heterosexual men? IOW, to demean a male is to make him into a 'woman'..... and by sexually assaulting him? This definitely trivializes and cheapens womanhood... even by the so-called 'conscious' brothas and sistas. Why are women really scared of the so-called DL phenomenon? It is because their perception of what a man is or what he should be.... is tainted by thoughts of him getting it in the rectum? But why? Why are homosexuals outcasted on the basis of anal sex when... 1) - heterosexual couples engage in it. 2) - according to some studies only 25% engage on anal sex. I may have more to include as this discussion gets going, but that's all I got so far.
