Staceyann Chin: why chasing straight women still thrills me
T here may be a thousand reasons why lesbians love the thrill of a straight girl. Maybe women who chase women possess the same rabid ego we despise in straight men, the same ego that makes a person go giddy at the thought of being the first for the straight girl in question. The heterosexual terrain of her flesh, untouched by other dyke hands, smacks of the virgin narrative. Who wouldn't want to be the first? Who doesn't like what feels like a conquest? A win? Maybe it is the thrill of conversion — and that is only if any such crossover can be deemed a conversion. Who is to say such conquests were not sleeper-lesbians, just waiting for the right moment to awaken? I suppose, though, through the right lens, the process could be described as evangelical, this business of meeting, and courting and having a woman decide to jump the heterosexual ship to be with you even if it is temporary.

I kept dismissing complaints from men so as to feminist advancements were leading to an unfair double standard. But they hold in reserve coming. Could it really be true? Something interesting happens every time I write a story about gender issues. Men I know, and many add I do not, reach out en route for me to tell me they air wronged — silenced, even.
