After reading this article, the first thing that comes to mind is how can someone really think being a lesbian is easier? And then I stop and think-wait, I’ve definitely had this conversation with my girlfriends before! Any time one of us has some kind of boy trouble the first thing we immediately say is “It would be so much easier if we were lesbian, cause then we could date each other!” We naturally assume that because we are girls and we know what we want or expect in our relationships that its got to be a whole lot easier than dealing a guy who is clearly from a whole other universe. What we don’t realize is that we are stepping onto a whole new level of problems. Same sex couples definitely get a whole lot more than they bargain for. Even though we would like to think we are in a broad-minded society where everyone is accepted-that isn’t really the way it is just yet. Lesbians and gays have to fight for things that we just assume everyone gets-equal rights.
