    Girls Make Out With Other Girls Mostly for Male Attention

    Girls Kissing Girls: Explaining the Trend
    By Jeffrey Kluger Wednesday, September 15, 2010 | 331 comments

    .............

    Sociology professor Verta Taylor, of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and her colleague, Leila J. Rupp of the school's feminist studies department, examined the trend in an article for the American Anthropological Association magazine Contexts. In one national survey, they report, fewer than 2% of women called themselves lesbian or bisexual, but fully 8% reported either feeling same-sex desire or engaging in some kind of same-sex act. The absolute numbers seem low — no surprise in a study that relies on self-reporting about so personal a matter — but what's more important is the 4-to-1 ratio between label and behavior, and that, the authors say, reveals a lot.

    There are three main drivers of the girl-girl trend — four actually, once you get past the copycat trendiness that is inevitable when stars on awards shows do something sensational on camera. Perhaps the biggest — for better or worse — of the other three reasons is a desire for attention, typically from boys. This is why parties are so often involved in same-sex kissing — and why the disinhibiting effects of alcohol frequently contribute. (More on Healthland: Osama Bin Laden as Doting Granddad?)

    "It's usually brought on by, I don't know, like shots or drinking or people kind of saying something to like cheer it on or whatever," said one female student the professors interviewed. "And it's usually done in order to turn guys on or to seek male attention in some way."

    That, say Rupp and Taylor, plays into the old feminist notion of the power imbalance involved in the "male gaze," with men as observers and women as the observed. Girls may hold boys in thrall with openly sexual displays, but they're still performing for the pleasure of an audience, and the boys are still in the socially dominant position.

    Re: Girls Make Out With Other Girls Mostly for Male Attention

    Typical to keep stating it's still the fault of boys. We don't force girls to go make out with other girls. It's tiring me how girls and women are never responsible for their own deeds.

    The vice versa styled explanation where the deeds of boys are to be blamed on girls is considered unacceptable in this society. In this case, the girls choose to engage in these acts, that is something guys can't help.

    But on the contraside, I could just as well argue rape is woman's fault, sure... most (proven) rape crimes are commited by men, but there are many of them who have been abused in during their childhood (boys are mostly abused by older women and specifically their mothers) and/or come from single mother homes (which is the breeding ground for people who will end up engaging into crime). So, in that sense, I could blame men's faults on women, but such an explanation would be met with outrage. It's an extreme case, but just to illustrate the principle and the double standard.

    People are ultimately, responsible for their own actions, and that should apply to the female gender again.

    Women who act and look feminine are not attracted to other women. That's both a simple fact of female homosexuality that these people continuely fail to adress. As for the bisexual women, their just slutty. Don't blame all males for the stupid females.

    That's bullshit and they know it!!!

    Women make out with other women when they've drank themselves retarded and have nothing better to do.
    An to be brutally honest, this whole cliche of going to college, fucking and drinking until your liver fails is downright irritating. No self respecting man in his right mind would want to bare witness to two drunken trollops kissing. Just like no self respecting woman would want to bare witness to some effete loser ferociously jacking beef to a Paris Hilton skin flick!

    Why not? Who the fuck are you to say who or what is a "self respecting man? It's getting kind of old and tired the way you decide that who ever doesn't view women and sex the way you do are idiots.

    A lot of what you say and gripe about have substance, but by shelling out opinions such as the one above as fact just make you sound like the rest of society with it's "this is the way it is or your wrong" attitude.

    I never said the men who doesn't view sex the way I do, are idiots! Where are you getting this shit from?
    Keep in mind I said no respecting man not "men".
    One last thing, I sound nothing like the rest of society. The masses are wide awake in dreamland and don't give two shits and a fuck if they're being lied to! Suddenly, I'm the villain because I don't adhere to king shit stereotypes of young men growing wood while watching two drunkards lock lips!

    Right. I gathered that as since I don't mind watching two chicks do it, then by your credentials, I don't amount to a self respecting man. Pretty bogus.

    The overall tone of some of your posts come across to me as "my way is the only way".

    I apologize if I'm taking your thoughts out of context.

    (I'm still pissed off about having to feel like a self depreciating fuck when I decide I'm in the mood for some girl on girl action. Thanks asshole. )

    Re: Girls Make Out With Other Girls Mostly for Male Attention

    I have seen young girls kissing each other right on the lips with a big smack in public!

    now what they do in private is a conundrum I guess

    maybe they study higher mathematics or ethics - it is a possibility right !!!

    what ever it is all about their right to choose etc

    I would lay London to a brick however they live down to their lowest impulses unstintingly
