No, these are stereotypes. People assume that same-sex couples mimic the presumed dynamics of heterosexual relationships. Nothing is more false. Sexual division of roles is not found in female couples as well as in male couples. In fact, gays and lesbians adopt traits and forms of relationship beyond the traditional roles dictated by society. As a result, roles and tasks in same-sex couples are assumed indiscriminately by both partners, depending on their abilities, tastes and preferences.
