And though that is not really a "problem"... it is an interesting question. So I am going to answer that in my first Ask Holly Jean post.
I have no problems with homosexuality or lesbianism. I would not treat a homosexual/lesbian any differently. They should be treated equally in terms of work opportunities etc.
Whether one becomes homosexual through nurturing or if it's in their genes... I really can't say. It's debatable - Is there a gay gene? (is it rainbow coloured?)
What I despise though are Faux Fags! I say faux fags because I mean those people who aren't really homosexuals or lesbians but pretend to be that way because they think it makes them look good... or special.. or more interesting than they could ever be if they were just straight. Some call if pseudo-homosexuality or faux lesbianism.
Is it just a trend? Is it hip to be gay?
Of course it is! Being gay is a huge trend now! Especially amongst teens and young adults.
In Singapore... why is it we see so many teenage same sex couples, but not as many mature same sex couples? (by mature I mean about 30 years and older)
Perhaps because teens are more susceptible to following a trend????? Or do you really believe we "out-grow" gayness as we get older? I call bullshit on that. I think a lot of gay teens aren't really gay in the first place.
The media keeps on hyping up gayness. Do you remember the Russian pop duo t.A.T.u. ? Their song "All the Things She Said" became a hit because the girls claimed that they were a lesbian couple. Later, it came out that the ladies were in fact, NOT GAY. That was just part of their marketing gimmick, but the mere suggestion was enough to make the song a hit.
Even more recently, we have Madonna and Christina and Britney kissing each other on stage to up the sizzle factor.
Following very closely, Lindsey Lohan and Samantha Ronson relations have filled the pages of many celebrity gossip magazines. My... my... what a strange coincidence eh? (maybe it's airborne this gay gene *I am rolling my eyes*)
When I was younger, when my straight girlfriend and I were at a club, we realised that men will come pouring over us when we started dirty dancing with each other as if we were sexually intimate/interested in each other. Ok.. I may be totally wrong, but we thought we looked hot together. (haha.. if the joke's on me)
Now then... Is it a far cry for me to say that a lot of straight girls out there have also realised the appeal of lesbianism to men? And are for a fact not really lesbains???

OK. Time for Holly Jean's Confession Box
Confession Box Poll- Have you Kissed someone of the same sex? And I don't mean a friendly peck on the cheek.
My answer- Yes. But I was just about 20 years old. It was a lesbian girl ( Don't know if she was a faux one or not). But I did it only because it drove the men wild. Other than that.. nope.
