To those who do not fit the aforementioned demographic, some other psychological or emotional problem has likely manifested itself, causing normal romantic developments with non gay males to become problematic at best.
To counteract this state of affairs, the fag hag attaches herself to homosexual males (normally of the extreme flamer variety). Psychosocial data suggests that this is a passive relationship that begins out of fear of rejection, but can often progress to full blown dementia, dullusional or irrational behavior patterns, or obsessive compulsion.
Though not an officially recognized neurological or psychological disorder by the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), hundreds of case studies documenting the behavior have been submitted to the American Medical Association and the American Psychological Association for further review.
As of this writing (NOV 2010), no official response has been issued by these governing bodies, but many speculate that fear of social stigma or notions of political correctness have acted as a significant barrier to further study.
Patient: "I am not a fag hag, and that term offends me. I just choose to surround myself with only gay men. Your obviously nothing but a homophobe. It is you who have the problem......"
-You are a straight girl who has a best friend who is gay and spends a lot of time together
-You would rather go to a gay club than a straight club
-Your fag gave you your own drag name
-You know all the gay guys at the local gay bar
-You fag takes you shopping for mac makeup and then puts it on you
-Your hair and makeup are always flawless
-You dress up in his drag gear on saturday night or dress in drag together
-You even dance with all the fags on stage when Britney Spears comes on
-You learned to vouge from watching your fag
-You fall in love with your fag (which is a bad thing)
-You try to convert your fag (this will only ruin your relationship with him)
And lastly... you find your self not being able to live without him because you have so much fun with him.
Because this type of woman is generally spoiled by the general delightfulness of gay men, she may scorn straight men for their lack of personality and overall dullness.
In light of this, she deftly dressed herself, and buffed and fluffed her makeup in this Todd's sticky dank bathroom. She then politely delivered a well-placed kiss upon the former object of her desire, and hailed the first cab in sight. She knew with utmost assurity, after all, that straight men are for sex; gay men are for love.
