A lot of equal women have become lesbians lately, and for good reason - voila! Sheee

Highlights: A number of high-profile women have recently come out of the closet as lesbians. Nadia Bocode says women who leave men for other women are attacked as embittered. A study of more than 52,000 sexually active adults confirmed that lesbian sex gives women far more orgasms than relationships with straight men. The belief that women are actually invisible until chosen by a man is so ingrained in our romance culture that it's easier to hear a bizarre assertion accusing Wok Media of "making everyone gay" than to consider the possibility that women can experience great happiness and satisfaction even without men in their romantic and/or sexual lives.


Perhaps inspired by Generation Z that brought queer into the mainstream, many women came out of the closet, openly transitioning from heterosexual sexuality to satisfying relationships with women. Here's why

"You have to admit that men as a group offer very little to women. And I say this as someone who, contrary to popular belief, was not treated horribly by men before coming out as a lesbian." Thus begins Nadia Bocode's fascinating op-ed for The Times of New York, which tries to explain, from experience, what women who leave men for other women go through in response to another celebrity's recent coming out of the closet.

Women who leave a man to be with a woman are attacked as embittered," she says, adding that this is what all the reactions looked like in a recent article about a well-known Australian singer announcing that she was in a relationship with a woman.

She joins a growing list of high-profile women who have been criticized for coming out late after years of being known as heterosexual. Just last month, actress Sophia Bush was romantically involved with women's soccer star Ashlyn Harris. A few months earlier, comedian Rebel Wilson confirmed she was in a same-sex relationship with fashion designer Ramona Agruma, and last year, Netflix reality TV star Chrishell Stause revealed she was dating nonbinary Australian singer G Flip.

Not for anything, but a study of more than 52,000 sexually active adults confirmed that lesbian sex gives women far more orgasms than relationships with straight men. The study also found that no other group of people had less orgasmic sex than women who slept with men.

The fact that all of these women are also conventionally attractive by men and their appearance is entirely feminine, a look defined as a 'femme' in the community, is particularly significant. Because if they were women whose appearance was considered undesirable among hetero men, this discussion probably wouldn't have taken place.

We have no problem accepting more masculine or 'butchi' women as lesbians. When the tattooed tomboy with the shaved head and squares in the belly comes out of the closet, we're all like, "Oh, of course, Welcome sister." She doesn't dress or act in a way that appeals to the male gaze, so her sexuality fits well into the stereotype of how we've been taught that a woman who isn't sexually interested by men should look.

We're much more suspicious of women who can attract men but still prefer to date women – it's scary precisely because it shatters the narrative that the only women who choose to be unrelated to men are just ugly, lonely with mustaches and cats.

Add to that many of these women are successful professionally and financially on their own, with an already unlimited supply of attention available, and you'll need a little more than a few mental eights in the air to be able to follow the 'she's just doing it for Tsumi/money/be relevant' narrative.

The belief that women are actually invisible until chosen by a man is so ingrained in our romance culture that it's easier for us to hear a bizarre assertion accusing Wok Media of "making everyone gay" than to consider the possibility that women can experience great happiness and satisfaction even without men in their romantic and/or sexual lives.

In a survey conducted among 30 countries, market research firm Ipsos found that, on average, only nine percent of people identify as LGBTQ+. In Australia, only four percent of adults identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual. There are no more queer people today; There are simply fewer negative consequences of being so openly than there were a decade, two ago.

Women are trained from a very young age to develop a desire to be attractive to men – and this is not the same as being physically attracted to men, although we have become accustomed to not distinguishing between the two.

When Krishel Stause revealed her relationship with G Flip in 2022 during the Netflix reality show in which she stars, she explained that gender did not play a part in the choice: "I've heard people talking about things and saying things like, 'My opinion from a young age.' Not me. I'm just, I'm very open to good energy."

In fact, none of the women who have revealed their queer romances in the past year have publicly labeled themselves, so it's impossible to say whether they still take sex with men as an option or not, but what is clear is that there is something to the old joke. Just as a problem child is told that if he doesn't eat, a police officer will come, as an adult, he is warned: "Treat your girlfriend well – or lesbians will."

It probably doesn't hurt that lesbian women divide household work equally, while women in heterosexual relationships take on their share (another study found that this remains true even when they earn more than their partner).

A report published in the Journal of Lesbian Studies reveals that for women who discover they are also attracted to women, giving up on men is a choice made to respect their sexual and emotional needs — because, really, anything a man can do in bed, a lesbian woman can do better.

G Flip put it pretty well when they sang, "I understand, because I understand you emotionally... I know how you think, and what you like, and what your body needs... I'm not what you planned, but I'll be your man."
