A fascinating irony of homosexuality …

First of all, let me note that I am not homophobic or against homosexuality in any way.  I support gay marriage, because, let’s face it, who the hell really cares?

Anyway, something that has always fascinated me about gay people is that they quite often, stereotypically, go out of their way to behave like their stereotypical counterparts of the opposite sex.

Simply put, why are many lesbians “butch” and many gay men flamboyantly effeminate?

You have to ask yourself, why would a lesbian woman be interested in other women who act like men, and why would a gay man be interested in other men who act like women?  It seems the contradiction …

Now, I realize that oftentimes these personality types are kind of genetic, hormonal, and I realize that even though they are stereotypes, they’re probably not typical in the actual statistics, but the irony is still there, and it befuddles me.  That’s all  😉
