Why female sexuality is considered to be more fluid than male sexuality

Note: I think that female sexuality is not more fluid than male sexuality. From what I’ve seen in america and korea, people will go for the people they feel attracted towards, regardless of gender. 
However, a woman questioning her sexuality or experimenting with her sexuality is more accepted than a guy doing the same. (Which isn’t really acceptance because it also provides a platform for homophobes to regard female queerness as invalid or insignificant)

So here are the reasons:

  • social double standards in regards to a vagina vs. a penis. Romantic “friendships” (read: raging love affairs) of the victorian era were acceptable because there was no penis involved
  • the ridiculous masculinity complex that makes queer men disgusting, therefore queer or questioning men are less likely to engage in same-sex activities
  • infantilization of adult females leading to more tolerance for vagina-vagina homosexual female intercourse because (again) no penis apparently means no sex
  • sexualization of lesbians in porn causing some girls to actually engage in homosexual activities in order to turn on a guy (I really hate bringing up fake bisexual girls because it reinforces the stereotype that all bisexual females are fake. Guys suck for trivializing the experiences of real queer women for some stupid lesbian threesome fantasy of theirs) 


I know she is proud. How not? What else was left her but pride? I know she is strong. How not? The Dothraki despise weakness. If Daenerys had been weak, she would have perished with Viserys. I know she is fierce. Astapor, Yunkai and Meereen are proof enough of that. She has survived assassins and conspiracies and fell sorceries, grieved for a brother and a husband and a son, trod the cities of the slavers to dust beneath her dainty sandalled feet.
