    Hi,

    I was reading an article last night that stated that there were certain sectors in Australia who had suggested lesbianism for older single women as a solution to the man shortage. I can see friends pooling one's resources but isnt Lesbianism on a who other level. They were suggesting this as a solution to the loneliness and isolation of older years. If homosexuality is inate how does one explain this phenom?

    lol, yeah.

    It doesn't seem like something that you can just pick up on a whim and expect it to be a long-term solution.

    Hehe..probably. The panel's suggestion mirrors the universal assumption that women are more open to the idea of homosexuality than men. I seriously doubt if the roles were reversed that older straight men would be asked to consider homosexuality as a default.

    Silly girl!

    (1) A vagina doesn't know the difference; a penis does.
    (2) Women don't enjoy sex, they tolerate it, or use it to get things they DO enjoy.
    (3) Licker-sisters are HAWT! Weenie-washers are NAWT!

    I told John Howard that he'd need me on speed dial one day. :rolleyes:


    Are they actively suggesting it, or just allowing society to 'accept' lesbianism?

    People write some insane ideas and concepts, don't they?

    How about moving? How about hiring men to come to Australia to meet older single women?

    These ideas sound more effective. I don't think sexuality works like that...lesbianism for older single women.

    I'm still in my 20's but as I'm getting older I'm beginning to understand that relationships are first and foremost about companionship. Good sex and general attraction are important but if the two person can't communicate then that's all the relationship is good for. I have absolutely zero interest in men and I'm not physically and emotionally attracted to them. But if someone comes along that absolutely blows me away and I feel I can connect to him, I can see myself in a relationship with a dude. Not really a sexual relationship though, cuz can't see myself enjoying that part of it at this point in my life. Maybe when I am really old and ugly. Shocking I know. But would be nice if he could help me with my golf swing.

    And I just wanted to add that the opposite (women shortage) is not technically possible cuz everywhere in the world you women tend to outlive us men. I think that's why this panel may have neglected to investigate that.

    No shit, huh? I hope you realized that my previous post was so far tongue-in-cheek that I sprained my face.

    Some of these morons just don't get it, do they?

    Your tongue is so nimble and athletic that I can't imagine a strain happening. Unless of course you're doing that thing we talked about last weekend........

    I wasn't responding to your post, DC Deep.

    I just thought anyone in Australia who would suggest that was a bit off.....
