So then, it's a choice?

CNN and Oprah.com are both reporting an interesting phenomenon in an interesting way.

Both sources are making the claim that an increasing number of women are leaving their men for other women. As if that claim wasn't interesting enough, the way they are reporting it should raise some eyebrows. 

"It's clear that a change in sexual orientation is imaginable to more people than ever before, and there's more opportunity - and acceptance- to cross over the line," said Binnie Klein, a psychotherapist and lecturer at Yale. She noted that a number of her married female patients in the past few years have fallen in love with women, and "are afraid that if they don't go for it, they'll end up with regrets."

Another feminist quoted in the article said that "When a taboo is lifted or diminished, it's going to leave people freer to pursue things."

Reading the article carefully, leads one to believe that these psychologists and researchers are reaching the conclusion that many of these women (who have never considered themselves to be homosexual), can make a choice to live a homosexual lifestyle.

This ought to leave many liberals in a quandary.  For years, they've been telling us that sexual orientation isn't something that someone chooses, and therefore, the "I'm created this way" should be a good enough argument to legalize gay marriage. Now, they are telling us that this is an "accepted" lifestyle and you can now choose to go either way, or go back and forth as you choose, an idea that also excites many in the "sexual freedom" camp.

So, which is it?

Excellent surmisal, TC...you're so right...
We've (the Oprahs of the world and many others) taken the MAN out of MANLY, so ...
TV shows do pretty much nothing but diminish fathers/men.
Scary, because a healthy society with healthy children needs and deserves traditional family units and it seems we're championing quite the opposite.

Totally get your take on this, however, I'm sure they will find a way to spin it to their advantage. Also, very discouraging news for the traditional family. :(
