I wish my hair would fucking grow faster
It's always grown slow, but as I've aged I think it's gotten even slower. It's finally down to the bottom of my ears after about 6 months of stalwartly refusing to get a haircut (last haircut with a #3 guard).
I'm shooting for about midway down my back. :-P
When I renounced my lesbianism, I stopped cutting my hair in December (it was practically buzzed and spiked on the top), and now it's all the way to the nape of my neck.
Read 'em and weep. ;-)

Advertising the heterosexuality now, AG?

Oh I'm at the nape in the rear, but the rear has always been a tad longer/faster.

AG, are you serious? My daughter was gay (an Orthodox Jew and his gay daughter living together, we were made for Oprah); I noticed that she had a hormonal problem, and I took her to the gynecologist (every father's dream). He put her on the pill, and now she's an ex-gay. No shit.
They say that kids, especially girls, are fluid in their sexuality, but I call bullshit on that. She started dressing in dresses, going out with boys, putting makeup on, wearing heels, etc.
Really strange. It was a case "be careful what you ask for" because then I had to give her "the talk" (boys are dangerous--that's part of their attraction, but always remember that). Before we just commiserated about "how can you say that?"
Just don't tell the Christian Right.

I'm not ex-gay. I date both now. Men just started to look good again for some reason.

Because you're old and desperate and sad?

Women/girls just slide effortlessly across the gender barrier, while men pick a side and stick with it. Wonder why.

"Because you're old and desperate and sad?"
Yes, that must be it.
July 11th, 2007 10:40pm
So muppet, you're saying when you're old, desperate, and sad even MEN start to seem like a reasonable choice? It's a good thing you're married.

i took the pill for a year when I was 18.
It grew my boobs. But it didn't change my girl love.
Human sexuality is complicated. Let's not go overboard with the simplifications.
Errr.. he shared an anecdote. Women DO tend to be more ambiguous about their sexuality. Who's going overboard with generalization?
Calm the fuck down. You're like a fucking hair trigger on a bad attitude.

My hair grows fast. So there.
> He put her on the pill, and now she's an ex-gay. No shit.
I knew a lesbian who had an ovarian cyst removed and voila, her long dormant bisexuality reared up and men became far more sexy.

Perhaps because the male version requires getting fucked in the ass?

How old was your daughter when that happened?
People aren't fully grown till they are 16 or so.

It seems obvious to me that any procedure or prescription that does something hormonal is bound to have an effect on ones sexuality. I mean, for a large part, that's what hormones do.
So in an already sexually open minded person that could easily change preferences to include more or other genders than before.
I wouldn't call it a gay-cure though.

Have you seen what he married though?

She was 17. An ovarian cyst can prevent the normal hormonal cycle, sounds like the same thing.

It depends. The prevailing line of thought is that the hormones act early in fetal development to guide brain structures. Once the sexual orientation is settled, there is little wiggle room.
I don't for example think taking hormones changes sexual orientation (we'd probably have heard about it by now).
It's also quite possible that there are different mechanisms for female and male homosexuality (possibly more than one mechanism for each).

> "I don't for example think taking hormones changes sexual orientation"
That's not what I said. I said that hormones affect ones sexuality and I don't think that there is any debate about that. Given that it is likely that they affect ones preferences. For food, music, sexual partners, etc.

ha. I once heard that people tried giving testosterone to gay males to make them straight. What they ended with was horny gay males. :)
