I've noticed this too. I think that for a guy, being homosexual he'd get bullied by guys because most guys don't think it's right but he will probably have female friends. And for girls, being a lesbian, other girls might find it hard to deal with but will eventually get over it and guys love lesbians. They love seeing two girls together! So overall I think males have it worse when it comes to other people's opinions about homosexuality.
In general, I do think that both genders have it difficult when it comes to this issue. In a lot of cases the dislike for homosexuality is equal among the genders. It does perhaps tip the scale because some men enjoy females with females more, but I do think that both sexes should be accepted equally. We're all only human. Our sexual preferences doesn't make us bad people.
I think that is because males are more into the whole "being a man thing" They are more aware of their image and they try to show off more and stuff like that. But I do think that woman have a problem with that too, is not just males, yes you do see it more in males but woman have as much discrimination in woman as you see in men.
Because men are supposed to be (by tradition) manly...? I agree, "Our sexual preferences (adult to adult) do not make us bad people". 'Gay bashing' of any color is wrong- TOO old.
Most men feel far more threatened by male homosexuality than lesbianism. In fact, most guys are all for lesbians if they can watch.
