Dreams have been described as dress rehearsals for real life, opportunities to gratify wishes, and a form of nocturnal therapy. A new theory aims to make sense of it all.

"In Mexico and the United States, women were significantly more prejudiced than men on the evaluations of lesbian women. We found that in several countries (including the United States), men and women did not significantly differ in their attitudes toward gay men."
This fascinates me. Why would straight women have a bigger issue with lesbians than straight guys? If there is no gender gap between the view of gay guys, why do straight women have a bigger problem with lesbians?
I have a theory. Maybe the difference isn't how straight women view lesbians, but rather that straight guys like lesbians. I've always clicked with the lesbian women I've known. They often have similar interests that I have. It's a stereotype, but I find lesbians like team sports. They're comfortable talking about cars and outdoor stuff. I had one lesbian coworker that didn't shy away from commenting on a hot girl she found attractive.
