What am I to think? Should I believe that female homosexuality is usually present in the promiscuous? Should I believe that, like all teenage boys might wish, lesbianism is simply the product of a heightened sexual drive? Is female homosexuality, unlike male homosexuality, a choice rather than a natural preference?
I don’t know if it is harder to be a teenage lesbian than a “gay boy”. I know that it’s no picnic for chaps, so should I assume it is rosy for girls? Part of me is inclined to believe it is much worse. “Fag” is something you smoke, which is a pleasurable pursuit for many. “Dyke” is something you dig, which is never fun.
The problem with Santana is that it was too sudden, it lacked intention, preparation. It also feels very temporary like she will “grow out of it”. All of that is a bit worrying and some sort of resolution would be good.
I’m not convinced Santana could really be a lesbian. But then, maybe, that’s just because I hate the thought of losing an attractive woman to the other side.
Oh yeah, I’m tag surfing again :)
I have to say I was surprised to read this take on Santana’s revelation. I certainly wouldn’t have pegged her as stereotypical. I mean, how many actual lesbian cheerleaders have you ever met (outside of porn?).
It was, however, extremely sudden, and I worry too that her story will not be handled with the grace we saw in Kurt’s story. The problem with a bar set that high, is that it’s set really freaking high.
