Why is it that we respect lesbians much more than gays. In my opinion I feel they should be treated equally as straights are... A lot of people these days are more against gays, but not as much lesbians if not okay with them. Is it because it's some of our fetish? I feel like there needs to be a change in how we look at gays, I have a gay friend and he's chill. He's not nothing like the stereotypes people hear. So please explain to me, why do we respect lesbians more than gays. Now of course some of you, don't respect one higher than the other, but in general the world does.
