In a discussion on Tuesday’s (July 27) episode of “The View” about why older women who have led lives of heterosexuality are suddenly turning to homosexual partnerships, Elisabeth Hasselbeck has an interesting point to make.

]]>Joy Behar argues that you don’t just suddenly wake up one day and decide you’re a lesbian. Hasselbeck’s rebuttal is that when you get older, sometimes it’s more about companionship than something sexual. Other sites have characterized this as Hasselbeck insulting lesbians by saying they are lesbians because they can’t get a man. We don’t think that’s exactly what she’s saying. Her point about wanting companionship because all the men your own age and of similar life experiences are turning to younger women is a valid one. What do you think?
