More older women coming out as lesbians

Feb 21, 2010 Full story: Inside Bay Area 76

When Meredith Baxter went public about being a lesbian two months ago - at age 62, after three marriages and five children - she became a poster senior for a trend that seems to be growing.

Three marriages says it all. She's a failure at the str8 game. Her choices are being single for the balance of her days, or sharing her residence with a woman of her generation. She's found one willing to share her bed. Instead of leaving people guessing as to why she lives with another woman, she as cut to the chase and made a forthright declaration.

For centuries, widowed and single older women paired off for security, companionship, and to make their limited incomes go further. This went unremarked, but now raises eyebrows. The only clean way forward is for the women who do this to declare themselves lesbian.

More accurately, it goes to show that PEOPLE are not straight or gay - that we waffle in the grey areas because there is no "correct" and "absolute."

Or it could be that they just don't think men are attractive looking.

She said her ex-husband David Birney was a real control freak.

They are bisexual and always leaned toward the feminine side they just fought it. People are less critical of older people. You can't say they are young and silly or that they are just experimenting. At that age people figure you can do whatever you want.

I can guarantee I won't be one to join their club. I have nothing against it I just like men too darn much.

I have an aunt that is bisexual. She was married for years and one day decided she didn't want to be married anymore. She has a friend she thinks no one knows about. Most of the family is oblivious but I always had my suspicions about her. She's like a sister to me and I don't love her any less. Doesn't make me any difference who warms her bed.

People don't decide to try out being gay because they can't cut it as heterosexuals moron!
They sometimes don't realize or accept their orientation until they are older. Sometimes they're bisexual by nature; sexuality does not operate on a binary system!!!! And people can actually shift orientations ~people do hopefully!) change and grow during their lifetime, after all.

People cannot change their sexual orientation any more than they can change their eye color or chirality.

There's tons of stuff featuring 2-3 smiling women groping each other. The women enjoy making it because it's safe sex, it's fun, and afterwards you can go out to dinner with the girl you groped and laugh about it all. Men are willing to pay to see naked women grope each other. Lesbians free ride on this girl-girl action. There is also mature girl-girl.

If you start with the premise that people are usually bisexual, as Freud (psychology) and Kinsey (sexologist) did, then there can be a lot of switching back and forth. For a bisexual, their choice can be a matter of who they meet, their situation, or social pressure.

What can pressure a bisexual into making a public declaration or a clear choice, is having; children, marriage, religion, society they live in, pressure from their lover, etc...

1. I think a certain percentage of people can give the impression of changing their sexual orientation, because they are bisexual and felt they had to make a choice.

2. Homosexuals or heterosexuals can perceive that a bisexual is changing their sexual orientation, because they might not be accepting that bisexuality is their orientation.

3. A bisexual may declare they are heterosexual or homosexual, for various reasons, but their sexual history and pattern says otherwise and bisexual.

If you say 15% are very heterosexual and 15% very homosexual, then there will be 70% of the people in the middle or leaning at various degrees towards one or the other extremes.

Obviously, there is a tremendous amount of social pressure, but also natural pressure in regards to having and raising children, towards heterosexuality.

Kinsey's famous scale goes from 0 to 6. Let say 0 is heterosexual, 3 bisexual, and 6 homosexual.

Even with various pressure and situations pushing people towards heterosexuality, there will be a significant number of bisexual people, that will enter exclusively heterosexual or homosexual relationships.

No, actually it shows that the labels we apply to ourselves can change, but our basic sexual orientation doesn't. Is Merideth a lesbian, or is she bisexual?

Who knows, and who cares? SHE gets to choose the label.

Doesn't sound like my cup of tea.

I find it funny that some men love to watch lesbian porn but don't realize those women wouldn't be a bit interested in a man.
