I think you just answered the question for a lot of folks, especially if (for example) the criticizer was a gay man who'd been repeatedly beaten by family members and ejected from the family at a young age. Sexuality is personal, but not everyone gets to go around breaking the boxes with complete immunity.
So the solution to being attacked for your own sexuality is to attack others for theirs?
Don't get me wrong I'm not comparing homophobic violence to snark on message boards, but if someone can say honestly "I like kissing girls because it turns me on to know that guys think I'm hot when I do it" then why hate? It's one thing to work against prejudice, but I see no need to criticize people who are just doing their own thing.
Oh and to clarify when I kissed my friends it was because I had fun doing it, the one time there was a guy there it was actually really fucking awkward. But I don't have a problem with the idea of people doing what they want sexually, with consenting partners, etc.
Well, first place, I'm a straight male, so my example wasn't about me. It WAS, however, something that has happened more than once to gay men I know.
Second, I'll go with this - if the other girl is into it for the same reason, then fine. It's duplicitous in a way that PROBABLY isn't needed to attract male attention, but at least you're both being honest that it's not about the girl.
