Is it easier being lesbian than straight?

"It's not like I think being gay could be an alternative, 'cos it isn't. I sometimes wish it would have been 'cos it would have made life easier..."

I wouldn't want to disallow the possibility of failling in love again, but I think that for 90, maybe even 95 percent, of women men are a huge disappointment in relationship terms. I'm not a man-hater, let me say that. I love men, love their company."

I don't know if it is easier being a lesbian than being straight - I've never been straight. I know what my wife's straight friends say. "Where can I find a guy like Julie?" "My husband doesn't buy me jewelry. Could Julie talk to him for me?" "She's so romantic, wish my husband was." I love when Cheryl goes out, because she appreciates me much more when she comes home. To be completely honest, I don't deserve her appreciation. She is really the backbone of this relationship.
Maybe lesbians could give straight men classes on how to treat a woman and then straight women would be happier?
I know that going to bars must be a nightmare for straight women. Men will hit on Cheryl and not let up, even after she says she's married. I usually have to step in and the man know nicely, but firmly that she isn't interested. How do straight women cope with that?
Hmmm, come to think of it, Annie Lennox might be right - it is easier being a lesbian.
