In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

Very briefly: in traditional Judaism, gay male sexual relationships are viewed as anathema, whereas lesbian sexual relationships are characterized as "mere lewdness." We can talk about whether such anathematizing is appropriate another time. But I think it is a sign of real insight into human sexuality that male and female homosexuality are treated as pretty much totally different phenomena. Evidence: can you imagine this story about "hasbians" (lesbians who go straight) being written about men? The question answers itself.
