Girls, A question about female sexuality?

Why does it seem like the LGBT community is dominantly female?
On top of that, it seems that a very large portion of Heterosexual females are relatively flexible with their sexuality? (Sometimes I wonder if sexual orientation labels can even apply to females).
I have always heard that Lesbian Porn is the most popular category for female power viewers...

Is this because Female Sexuality is developed to be more geared towards non-hetero tendencies?
Is it some sort of societal/cultural influence?
am I simply blind?

What makes female sexuality this way?
Some of my own theories include that females care less about the sex of the partner, than the emotional attachment that can be developed. Also, I believe that culture tends to enforce some aspects of sexuality in women that it doesn't in men.. even through non sexual ways (for example how male/male friendships tend to be less "intimate" than female/female friendships)

What are your thoughts on all of this?
I have am asking this question specifically to females, because im only interested in a female response to this.

  • I suspect just as many men as women are bisexual, but most won't admit it out of fear.

      My advice is to not let virginity define you. Look at women, if you're interested in women, as equals, no better or worse than you. We have our own troubles and insecurities and hopes and dreams, just like you do, and you'll have a lot more luck if you talk to women with a genuine respect and interest, without broadcasting your fears and insecurities. Your virginity is only a big deal if you make it a big deal, and I'd highly recommend you don't do that. My other piece of advice is to refer to women as women, not as "females." Female is fine for a gender studies or anatomy class, but it sounds almost dehumanizing, like you're observing animals in the wild and documenting their behavior, rather than thinking of them as real people with complex personalities and desires of their own. Good luck out there, I wish you love and fulfillment!

  • i think all this applies to the stigma that women can be more flexible withtheir sexuality and be intimate with other women that they have platonic relationships with without it being weird, whereas guys are so forced to be masculine and posess so much virility and because sexuality and working through those feelings and tlaking with other people about who we like seems to be much more female thing bc its seen as more emotional. it seems like if a guy likes anyone else but girls, its seen as weird when in actuality, not every guy will be into girls.

      I do agree with this
      it does seem like females have such an extreme openness.. that it becomes even difficult to create a "Stereotype" for a Bi/Gay female
      females are just females

      while for males.. there's tons of stereotypes (and even straight men are called out as "gay" just because of a mannerism).

  • Society certainly plays a part. Females don't necessarily dominate the LGBT community but tend to be more outspoken. I think because it's also an avenue for empowerment.
    Don't use porn viewing as a basis. Incest porn tends to be among the top viewed by men. Doesn't mean they are all planning to go fuck their mother/sister. Bare in mind porn is produced for a male audience.
    Some women are more flexible but not all by any means. Women can feel attraction in different ways to men, emotional attraction can be more important. Guys have a habit of attributing that to being bi.

      I see
      so you would say the LGBT is likely to be evenly men/women... but women are more verbal about their sexuality?

      I can see it as empowerment.
      though I also believe Gay Men tend to be the most visible for the same reason..
      and also because we tend to be "trained" to point them out.

      Women are way more visible because A lot are feeling they've had A lot more than just their sexuality repressed
