Are Lesbians usually lesbians because they are rejected by a man?

Not trying to offend lesbians but I found out that 75% of lesbians are overweight in America. So are they lesbians because they are rejected by a man.

I would not be surprised if they had issues with men. Some homosexuals do that and some do it as a counter-culture thing.

Yes, some homosexuals (both male and female) are changed in sexuality by bad experiences, however, most of them were just like that or changed over time.

Side: Yes they had men issues

If this is true, it only further proves that sexual orientation is choice and not genetic.

It is physically possible, quite simply, actually. (InB4 argument about brain development)

Homosexuality is not a choice you can turn on and off maybe some Lesbians have had bad experiences with men which friends and family say is the reason for them being Gay but if those closest to them have that kind of attitude (looking for a trigger for their Gayness) they were probably Gay all along just trying to hide it, best way to hide it date the opposite sex to the one you are attracted to, if that is what someone is doing its going to end in disaster but it gives others the excuse that being treated bad by so and so triggered their Gayness.

Or maybe they had been convinced by well meaning but stupid people who are afraid of a plague of homosexuals that being Gay is a choice and by dating men they would magically turn straight.

I'm sure that in some cases it is true. Though not based on physical appearance, or "I can't get a man so I'll just get a woman" thinking. More so there was a bad experience with the opposite gender so a person instead just finds comfort with their own gender. Obviously this isn't all cases, but I can see this being possible.

I don't believe that sexuality is always a choice. I think it's been drilled into society but the persistence of the gay rights movement that it is. I guess to say "its not a choice - usually!" wouldn't sound very convincing. There are events in a persons development that can clearly shape their sexuality. We accept this in people that have other forms of sexual perversasion: sadists, pedophile, necrophiles, zoophiles etc. but not in homosexuality. I find it odd that we've become so polite that we can't even consider that, clearly, there are events that shape all kinds of sexuality.

This is a load of homophobic bullshit. Lesbians just love pussy, plain and fucking simple.

Could be, But probably not. They were born with some attraction to the same gender and they chose it.

Side: No they just love woman

usually this isn't the case, most heterosexuals/homosexuals are predominantly heterosexual/homosexual and are simply more attracted to the same/opposite gender than vice versa. Homosexuals usually can't be happy with the opposite gender, and the same goes for heterosexuals and the same gender. However I am sure there are exceptions. Sexuality is very complex and no so concrete as we tend to think it is. There is Kinsey's research claiming people can have attractions to both, more often there is a lean one way or the other but the closer in the middle I hypothesize the more the person could be happier with either gender. There is also the Klein scale claiming that not only sexuality is a spectrum but is multivariable and thus can be attracted to the two genders in different ways. So I do think cases like this do happen, however the question has the word usually which is key here, and usually lesbians are predominantly homosexual, it's not really a choice for them at all, they just like their own parts significantly more than the opposite gender is all. Honestly this question is a childish notion.

By definition, woman who are sexually attracted to other women are lesbians. But this debate does bring up a good point and that point is fake "lesbianism."

My older sister is insecure. She has body hair problems, hormonal problems, and it makes her unattractive. However, she is a beautiful person the inside. :) There are days when she tells me basically what if she had a sex change. I don't remember her words exactly but it was simply those words and other words that implied she was thinking she was into girls. While yet, she was drooling over men on soap operas. I am not clear on what sexuality my sister has or if her hormonal problems do contribute to her sexuality ideas BUT it looks like it does.

I don't say this a lot but i haven't problem a lot of evidence so i deserve a down vote. But i hopefully brought up something interesting. :)
