Honestly the only reason I am with a woman now is because she is the most incredible person I have ever met.
as far as the double standard goes, I can actually answer that. and it's really simple.
to most men, and even most people 2 girls kissing is a lot less gross than 2 guys kissing. The reason for that, I believe actually comes down to the different type of social interaction between all male and all female peer groups.
all-female peer groups are generally more casually intimate, girls hug each other, they share with each other on an emotional level that most guys can't do with each other. combine that with the majority of "locker room shenanigans" being both vaguely homo-erotic and homophobic, the challenge of being masculine enough to be accepted by society at large, with all that implies (which is something being forced out in most of the US, and Europe too I believe, but that is a whole different rant)
