    It seems to depend upon the perceived level of 'attractiveness' of the lesbians in question.

    'Hot' girls who like other 'hot' girls are all the rage in pop culture and much of mainstream society.

    However, if they happen to look like Rosie O'Donnell and Martha Stewart, then they seem to get dissed just as much as gay men...

    i always thought it was the other way around, like girls seem to want to have a "gay best friend" and gay men are also often stereotypically seen as fashion designers, movie directors, wedding planners.. thast sort of thing, so i thought people see them as quite fashionable i suppose

    Hell no, and heres a reply from a lesbian.

    Sure popular culture has no problem with girls kissing and performing for their visual pleasure (also many like to imagine that they can join the lesbians- YEAH RIGHT), but women marrying each other instead of men and women using sperm donors and living together- nope, mainstream society is as much a fan of lesbians as it is gays. Men tolerate lesbians because 'itz hawt', (the same reason why many women tolerate gays) but it's only because lesbians do not 'threaten their masculinity'. Conservative men hate butch lesbians or non 'attractive' lesbians. Ask one, and you'll find out.

    And by the way- you can NOT turn lesbians straight. True lesbians are not interested in men. Also, saying that you love lesbians but hate gays? GTFO.

    not in my opinion.

    I used to be kinda weird about gay people in general since i grew up in a straight Christian town that taught me to hate all gays, guys or girls... a show call Queer as Folk really opened my eyes and helped me to accept all gay people though.

    Now when I see guys holding hands or kissing it doesn't bother me.

    Lesbians are really hot
  • missEMOFOX 2011/09/16 19:55:16
    maybe it's because a homophobic may be more uncomfortable being mean to a woman...
    or perhaps because they have issues with butt sex...
    the only way to find out would be to ask a homophobic person...
  • doc 2011/09/16 18:47:39

    It's because even homophobic men can get behind girl on girl action

    lesbians are being accomodated than gay men.
  • Helmholtz 2011/09/15 06:21:37

    I think so. I think that women tend to be consistent on their views of sexuality and that men tend to be more visual/creative and think with their d!cks.
  • Anariashki 2011/09/15 03:18:36
    Statistically they're significantly poorer than gay men on average. How does that factor in?

    Yeah, cause thanks to porn/rap/etc., lesbian now means "Hot chicks used as fapping material for horny guys/girls. But mostly guys."

    The only reason is guys think lesbians are hot, but girls don't really thing gay men are hot.
  • Bibliop... Chases ... 2012/03/15 01:59:13
    Actually, some of them do.

    I'm bi, (and a woman) and yes, i have noticed that. But, people only accept women more because they find it "attractive" . But, men should not be neglected when they are gay.

    I've definitely noticed this. Out of the countries that have made homosexuality illegal, 26 of them allow female homosexual relations. The only reason I can come up with for why this is is that straight men like lesbian porn and wouldn't want it to be illegal. Since the rulers are all (presumably) straight men, it makes sense for it to be this way. But how can they have such obvious double standards in their laws? It pisses me off to no end.

    porn illegal rulers straight obvious double standards laws pisses Lesbian kiss
    Lesbian Kissing = YUM!

    straight obvious double standards laws pisses lesbian kissing yum Gay kissing
    Gay Kissing = EW, NO WAY!!! GET THEM AWAY FROM ME D:

    DUH! Two dudes going at it is nasty!!!!!!!
  • Bibliop... Chase M... 2012/03/15 01:58:48
    Do women think it's nasty... or other gay men? Or can you speak for everyone?
  • Dawn 2011/09/14 15:04:05

    I don't think that's fair at all, but I think I know why lesbians are more accepted. Men think it's hot when two women are together, but two men together they just think is disgusting. I think it's a threat to mens masculinity, and the world is still ruled mostly by men.
    Just becuase they're gay does not mean they can't be masculine, and just cause a womans a lesbian that does not mean she's a dyke or a butch.
    Y'know what I wanna know though? Guys we know would like to see their woman with another women, how many ladies would like to see their man with another man?

    It's because we live in a male dominated society and they fantasize about having two women sexually.

    Its because straight men (most not myself) are threatened by gay men but find lesbians sexy. I myself am straight but I accept both. As long as someone is cool doesn't matter if there gay, lesbian, or whatever

    Two or more women together is a good thing. Just wish I could be there.

    I dont think so !!! In many places of the world they are ok with both lesbians an gay men !! If you mean there is racism in some countries I think it happens to both categories of this kind !!

    Straight men feel threatened by gay men, whereas they dream about getting two women in bed and watching them make out.

    "Lesbians" are no threat to the manhood of "the American male". In fact they are a challenge.

    It has to do with a patriarchal world view. The male is always to be the aggressor, never the pursued, never the objectified. Even the thought of being objectified or pursued, no matter how unlikely, makes the less secure male feel weak and powerless, and thus, hostile.

    I don't mind either. But I think most of the guys get uncomfortable around gays, unlike lesbians.

    Do women get uncomfortable around lesbians? Yes, sometimes.
