Depends on the type of lesbian. Lesbians that are with other women because they legitimately prefer other women sexually or women that are lesbian because they hate men.
I caught the end of a documentary not that long ago, which pointed out that women get sexually aroused when looking at pictures of other naked women - whereas men don't with photos of men, unless their gay. This was proven with measuring instruments placed in/on the genitals. The kicker was - of course - that women lied about being aroused. The scientific evidence contradicted their claims conclusively.
This sort of evidence reinforces the belief I've come to on women - they are fundamentally users.
They use you to get favours. They use you to get privelages. They use you to get posessions. They use you to get status. They use you to get money. They use you to get children.
Then they'll use the system that is society that gets them all these things to dispose of you, after they've decided they still haven't got enought things yet.
Their innate bisexuality provedes impetus for this behaviour since they have such a close bond with other women.
Remind you of anything you've seen recently?
The above scientific evidence does make me wonder that if women where free from being criticised and the accountabilty that they can get in society, that they might just dispose of men far more freely than they can with the powers they already have in modern times.
So women aren't really being lesbianised by marketing. Its just a representation of the truth about women.
I think it is just that women are by nature bisexual

I know that upon divorce the legal fiction, especially in community property states, is that each party contributed equally to the marital assets.
But I have always wondered how family law people can even stretch that legal fiction to cases that are obviously not equal. A guy gets higher combat pay because he is risking his life in the military in a war zone. Pumpkin supposedly earned half of that while she was watching "The View" on TV back in their comfy home. A boxer gets the living crap beat out of him for money; Cupcake earned half of that. A guy wins the Nobel Prize - there was even a case in which a long-since divorced wife got part of that (genius as she is).
Even the more normal case of a guy getting his health destroyed because of the stress of a full-time, soul-sucking job while Homemaker dusts a little and then watches Dr. Phil - why is society so heavily invested in bending and twisting everything to try to pretend like this is equal? Why is there massive resistance to saying, "you got a free ride up to now honey, you ain't getting any more if you want a divorce", instead of the usual: "we have to giver her the standard of living to which she has become accustomed, even if the person who earned it loses his standard of living".
Here's an example of a guy challenging the constitutional authority of the IRS and claiming that it didn't have jurisdiction over him:
The result: The guy had to pay twice the costs of the appeal plus another $2000 just for giggles for filing a frivolous legal action.
And he still has to pay his taxes.
Actor Wesley Snipes just got out of prison for believing in a similar scheme involving the IRS.
I can see these people saying all of the way through the process - even when they are finally sitting in prison, or the Sheriff is loading their assets onto a truck to auction off for the civil judgment - that the laws don't apply to them.
A Canadian judge wrote a 156 page decision (interestingly in a family law case) where he analyzed what he calls "The Organized Pseudolegal Commercial Argument (OPCA) Litigant Case", including the "Free man on the Land" movement. A summary can be found here. Suffice to say that they're being shot down in court left & right, being judged "vexatious litigators" and found liable of elevated costs, punitive damages & fines. Not a path someone wants to go down on.

There are seven layers of city structures immersed in the New Dehli region, before New Delhi was constructed. The old regions of the city contrast disharmoniously with the newer regions in response to the British construction of New Delhi, deliberate segregation ensued. Pakistani refugees also emigrated into New Dehli in 1947. In 1950's government built housing estates for it's employees which are segregated from the other working population, in a hierarchical manner. 1975 - 1977 hundreds of thousands of families were relocated to resettlement colonies from slum areas. Areas of the city written in the Delhi Master Plan are sectioned off for urban agriculture, while unauthorized settlements are sometimes demolished. Today New Delhi has many various urban centers. Wealthy and powerful people often reside in urban centers whereas the the lower status people reside on the fringes and urban periphery. The poorer populations are usually residing in the older sections of the city. The underprivileged are usually of a low caste status and still subject to social ostracism. (V. Dupont, 2004, p. 169).
In recent decades there has been a movement of "upper-classes to move to the outskirts of the metropolis, in farmhouses and posh residential complexes that have developed south of the Delhi Territory and attracted well-off families in search of a better living environment" (V. Dupont, 2004, p. 163).
The possibility of reaching an inclusive multi-stakeholder agreement between various parties may be challenging due to social balkanization. While due process, redress of complaints, and the respect of basic individual rights of all in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations can assist in reducing social balkanization by establishing and equitable standard uniting all members of society. Rights of the individual that cannot be voted away are needed for minority and individual protection that institutions may not infringe on natural law and will of human beings though the collective society. "Group rights have historically been used both to infringe upon and to facilitate individual rights and the concept remains controversial" (Bisaz, C., 2012, p. 7-12). Groups are made up of individuals therefore the notion of gaining rights by forming a party is illusory and contrary to natural law. A person is not legally obligated to be regulated unless consenting through recognized legal contract, therefore only institutions can regulate their own affairs, without infringing on natural and human rights. Groups can only have legally binding authority created by the consent of the will of individuals within it. Collectives require the legal consent and contract of individuals in order for them be a subject to collective authority, and cannot be coerced otherwise without individual human rights being violated (article 20, 12, and 29,UDHR). Group rights exceeding these limitations, can result in a form of authoritarian control and oppression against individual freedom and equality under the law, while furthermore such arbitrary rules not represented by individuals results in a loss of faith and moral to the rule of law or order of society, therefore initiates the process of undermining it . "Much of the recent political discourse on individual rights in the People's Republic of China, particularly with respect to due process rights and rule of law, has focused on how protection of individual rights actually makes social control by the government more effective. For example, it has been argued that the people are less likely to violate the law if they believe that the legal system is likely to punish them if they actually violated the law and not punish them if they did not violate the law. By contrast, if the legal system is arbitrary then an individual has no incentive to actually follow the law (Individual and group rights, 2012).
"India has an extensive system of affirmative action quotas or reservations intended to redress historical inequalities of opportunity, especially the legacy of caste system" (Individual and group rights, 2012). This sort of strategy of using discrimination to correct discrimination is philosophically flawed as practicing that which it opposes. Equality under the law is violated by affirmative action and thus those in party to them is then working not as a solution to discrimination but a exacerbating force, of that very same exclusion. Special rights or privileges violate the universal standard of equality under the law, as suggested in the Universal Declaration of Human rights Article 1 and 7 (Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948) and the philosophy of the rule of law in general. Equality under the law is a system of order, which when violated breeds disorder, mistrust of authority, secret agreements, flattery, cruelty, inhumanity and corruption in general. "Make everyone equal under the law" (Mei Yaochen, 1002-1060 Sun Tzu, The Art of War).
Gender inequity is a complex controversial and three dimensional equation. Gender is at the root of human experience and society itself and is universal, therefore any sustainable development plan should therefore employ universal gender neutral policies allow equal opportunity and justice and reserve these organizations the right to make judgments on behalf of criterion irrelevant to gender only pertaining to the ability of that person to meet the responsibilities required. This means policy and law apply to both women and men boys and girls, whereas specification of gender is therefore irrelevant and superficial to the meaning of any law or policy.
Gender warfare and discrimination degrades public harmony and undermines the very seed of society at all levels: "The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State." (Article 16-3, UDHR), the family is the harmonious relationship between opposing genders of which humans are born out of nature and natural law. Gender warfare and discrimination degrades public harmony and undermines the very seed of society itself, which affects society at all levels for it being based on standards of social behavior between individuals which is strongly and firstly influenced by family upbringing. Ancient wisdom suggests: "Every kingdom divided against itself is headed for destruction, and no city or house divided against itself will stand" (Holman Christian Standard Bible, 2003). Disunity and conflict, can lead to social problems. Fatherlessness for example increases chances of: suicide, rape, homelessness, behavioral disorders, high school dropouts, chemical abuse, juvenile crime (Getting Men Involved,1997) Gender issues carry health, policy, social or cultural, equity, discrimination, implications and relevancy which puts stress on institutions which use complex inequitable standards that discriminate on the basis of gender instead of simply chartering equality on behalf of both within government policy and non-government public institutions. Inequity of social policy between genders unnecessarily complicates matters, wastes resources, time, money, and efficiency, degrades the quality of life, both public and private by planting the seed of social strive in society. Not only women but men as well are discriminated against according to the situation in India. In India there are separate men's and women's movements and advocacy groups, and as with any social balkanization of men and women. While many journals have now included women's issues, they have tended to ignore those of men when discussing gender. Men however do suffer from discrimination in general as well as in India as examples below will provide.
Public outrage of victimization of women does not stop short of calling for the victimization of men like public beating and castration (Sharma, 2013). When famous women cry rape and then recant, public outage is only afforded to the accused and never the false accuser (Sharma, 2013).
Women are given their own private travel compartments, and ticket lines, for public transport such as busses and trains usually seating in the front half, men cannot sit in these seats and if they do they are sometimes beaten by women (Sharma, 2013) (Women only passenger car, 2013) (Men are beaten, 2010). There has been at least one instance of a man being physically thrown off a moving train "by a constable for boarding the ladies compartment" who was then taken to a hospital to recover (PTI, 2010), the rampant hostility towards men shown in the cited videos allude to the fact that these incidents are not uncommon (Men Beaten, 2010).
"Slap your alcoholic or wife-beating husband in public and get a cash reward of Rs 1,000 per whack -- up to a maximum of Rs 10,000" this was or is an 'incentive scheme' an Andhra Pradesh minister is offering harassed wives in his constituency (Radhakrishna, 2011). The more beating the more money, indeed it appears "the more a culture embraces special treatment of women, the more draconian they invariably become against men." (Elam, 2012).
Male migrant workers seeking work opportunities have "extremely precarious" residential opportunities. "Thus, at night many of them are found sleeping under the verandas in bazaars, on pavements and other open grounds, or in night shelters run by the municipality for homeless people" (V. Dupont, 2004, p. 162).
While the Constitution of India is written stating that nobody can be discriminated on the basis of gender, laws which violate that limitation holding that only men can be perpetrators of rape and women only victims, dowry laws, sexual offenses, and laws further protect "the modesty of women" (Sharma, 2013).
These examples are included to simply dispel any illusion of the inequity between genders that exist on both sides rather than. Gender inequality is a complex and three dimensional equation and should be treated with care. Both men's and women's advocacy groups should be consulted by institutions for awareness of these protean issues.
Prejudice causes needless conflict and reduces efficiency of society and can even bring it to a crisis undermining business as usual, fostering political corruption as tribal or power politics pervade rather than the service of all by a just unbiased government mediator which is it's responsibility. Legitimacy of government is also undermined in times of oppression of a class or group or even individual. Government oppression causes crime rates to increase and the criminal justice system to be stagnated as suggested by the research. Non-representation and support of collective and individual citizens, who are kept oppressed rather than served by government will not further governmental power or effectiveness but in fact plant the seed of it's own dissolution and disunity.
Inequality in society cannot be remedied by creating greater inequality on one side of the scale to correct it. Such simple-minded strategies do pay no respect to the complexity of social issues. All laws must be made gender neutral and audited. That is there maybe biases and inequalities in culture at one level or another in India, but government has no legal jurisdiction over culture, attempting to correct for perceived cultural matters with special privileges and statues within institution of government or otherwise, contradicts the rule of law and equality and increases instances of discrimination. NGOs can invest their private interests in ameliorating what they see to be particular inequality, while writing inequality into government policy to correct for inequality will not in fact correct it, but only exacerbate and twist it into an even more monstrous kind of inequality, increasing crime, violence and conflict in society (Horn, 2013) (Kumar, 2011)
Universal equality is not an appropriate abstraction to apply to human affairs, men and women can only be equal under the law, natural law creates each individual unique, any attempt to force equality through actions based on outcomes do not penetrate to the root cause and simultaneously violate individual rights and equality under the law creating discrimination and conflict at an even more artificial level.
Gender dynamics in India are old and ancient and passed down through cultural stories. Men in India are often in the past and present seen as protectors of women, obligated to give up their lives to help women if necessary. "Protector day" is celebrated every year in India. An Indian cultural story of King Shantanu in the epic Mahābhārata tells of how the king does a wrong for breaking a promise never to question his wife's actions even when murdering her own children (Desphande, 2013).
Again gender inequity is a complex and three dimensional equation, it cannot be remedied through practicing discrimination in effort to remove that same discrimination, as that is a logical contradiction. Making this argument and recommendation is difficult given the paucity of studies by NGOs or government institutions on the discrimination agains men genders face rather than just women. Given however the climate of discrimination against men and the women's and men's movement within India, it is reasonable to suggest a all inclusive response on behalf of institutions through gender neutral policies for the reasons stated above. India's men's rights movement has somewhere around thirty thousand members today, and help lines in many major cities across India. It has rapidly grown in the past decade, and is a nascent uprising against human rights violations and gender discrimination (Kumar, 2011).
I just called the guy as well.
So what happened?
I sent a query to BAMIN (Bay Area Male Involvement Network) regarding if they published such a newsletter in Spring of 1997 and if so, was there such a collection of statistics in the particular issue.
I will report back if & when I get a reply.
