The pandemic has inspired many of us to try new things. Baking, for example. Or binge-drinking. Or lesbianism. A friend of mine (I affectionately call her the Superspreader) has been dating prolifically during the pandemic; she swears she has never met as many women who have recently decided to try dating women as she has in the past few months. “I think coronavirus is turning everyone gay,” she told me. I know that the plural of anecdote is not data, but it would bring me a lot of joy if this were true.
