This insight came to him after observing a lesbian couple and their interaction with their son. A friend of the couple then “said hello” to him – and that was apparently the spark. After he had investigated the question “Are there men who like lesbian women?” on the internet, he found out: “I am a lesbian man. That’s the minority of the minority.” And now “suddenly everything is clear”.
Even in primary school he “preferred to be with the girls”. Today he shows interest in men’s and women’s fashion, he likes champagne better than beer, he admires strong women and his first girlfriend is now living in a lesbian marriage – and all this now makes perfect sense to him.
“I used to cry a lot too. That doesn’t bother me at all now,” the craftsman continued. Besides, he “always liked to watch Frau-TV on WDR. My partner at the time found it impossible. Now I just watch it!” A friend who had problems with relationships with other women enthusiastically exclaimed, “Great, now you’re my first girlfriend.”
Despite all these ground-breaking realisations, however, he still feels gendered as a man and wants to maintain this in a new partnership. “Maybe there is another man out there who feels the way I do. I would wish him not to have to turn 50 before he hears about it.”
It’s all about confessional courage. Soon the brave “lesbian” craftsman will call for a “lesbian male quota”, greater acceptance for the suffering of this “minority of the minority” which has been ignored for so long, and schools adopting this category in their curriculum under threat of losing funding.
