I've tried it when I was a teenager. I was really curious. I don't think anything of it, or that it was wrong. Now I'm married and I don't think about other women at all like that anymore. Although my hubby would probably want to see that lol

LOL

How many of those who are worried about mainstreaming gay people say that if we make that a viable choice it will make more people choose it?

I always wonder about those people....I mean, I'm as strong a supporter of gay rights as you will find, but I love men and won't be gay no matter who can marry who.  LOL

Have you noticed how often anonymous forums have threads full of women who say they want to try having sex with another woman?

If it was more acceptable for people to be homosexual, I think more of those posters would have tried it, when young adults, before they got trapped into a marriage.

Anonymity certainly makes it easier to say things you might not otherwise say.

Do you think there are way more people who are gay or bisexual than we acknowledge because they are fearful of acknowledging it themselves?

I think more people would be freer (is that a word?) to explore themselves. I know many who would disagree but IMO that isn't a bad thing at all.

I think sexuality runs on a spectrum.  I think the majority are more firm in their heterosexuality, and there are some firm in homosexuality, but there is a fluid middle group.  Those might be explorers if they didn't have social or religious strictures against it.

Inappropriate, but I just had a thought I found amusing...

Has anyone considered the beneficial effect upon teen pregnancy rates of promoting experimenting with lesbianism among teenagers?

Has got to be an easier sell than abstinence. :-)

 Sure, YOU are.  You are a grown woman, probably at least in your 30's, with kids.

Whole different story when 12 year olds begin experimenting - and they will experiment according to what is presented as normal behavior most of the time.    Sexuality is extremely malleable.  What happens in those early years is what you will deal with for the rest of your life, for good or ill.

It's just reprehensible and outrageous to ignore this.   So a Mom like you saying,  "Oh, I will always want men."  is just irrelevant at this point.  Of course you will.

At 12 I wanted boys. Heck, I wanted one in first grade.

I think your opinion on this subject says volumes about your security in your own sexuality.

 Nice reach, but meh....I'm probably twice your age, and quite secure in my long marriage, thanks.  LOL.  If I had insecurity, I think it might have manifested itself by now. 

Nice try at deflection though.
