Why do almost all gay women have short hair? I'm interested . . .
I am all for gay marriage and equal rights believe me!!!!! I am so happy Massachusetts has started everything. But, my sister is gay and has short hair, her partner has short hair, my sister-in-law is gay and has short hair, her partner has short hair, my best friend's sister is gay and has short hair, her partner has short hair and every picture I see of gay women have short hair. Gay men don't have long hair . . . what gives? Is it genetics? Probably . . .

1. My guess would be
that it's not genetics. My guess would be that they cut their hair. That's why they have short hair.

4. I don't want to sound bigoted...
...because I am ANYTHING but that. But I have often wanted to ask why in gay or lesbian couples one partner usually tries to look/move like a member of the opposite sex. I mean, if two women are partners, why does one decide to look butch? If two men are partners, why does one try to look effeminate? Please enlighten me. I know this might be really dumb.

5. No,
much more likely a cultural thing, like gays with that voice.

6. All gay women have short hair???
I know and have know gay women who have long hair. I have short hair, always have and I'm not gay. I know women who have to work all their lives and don't have time for fussing with long hair who keep their hair short. I think you don't know enough gay women to paint them with such a broad brush.

7. Perhaps you shouldnt be wondering why they have short hair

and be asking why you're inundated and surrounded by Gay women.

9. Tactical reasons
Long hair is easily grabbed and can be a liability in a fight. I've noticed that many women, gay or straight, who take responsibility for their own protection will either cut their hair short or wear it up.
