I could never get into porn until I saw some gay porn. Is this a normal thing for women? (self.AskWomen)

I'm a straight female but have never been a big porn person. The dynamic between males and females in straight porn is just this overbearing, obnoxious super passive/super aggressive dichotomy. The girl squeals all the time and is just generally annoying. Eight hours of blowjobs, blowjobs, blowjobs with no reciprocity.
So, anyway, I finally did take a pass at gay porn, and it's much better. The balance between the two actors is less absurd, and yeah, it's still tons of blowjobs but at least there is a male face in the picture and he is not practically crying mid-orgasm.
I don't mean to come off as "Oh, I'm so straight that chicks in porn is just the worst." But I can't really get over the fact that I'm watching porn when their experience doesn't mirror mine at all, and for whatever reason, I can't not put myself in her place when watching straight porn. So, suspending disbelief isn't happening.
In contrast, with gay porn, it's a lot easier coming to terms with being an observer of two hot guys being with each other. I also think they do a better job of having 'active sex' without it toeing this uncomfortably hostile line -- unless I'm the only person who doesn't understand why a good thrusting simply must be accompanied with "Yeah, bitch, you like that, HUH?!" For some reason, this is ubiquitous in porn dialogue (but thankfully absent from my own courting experience.)
Just me? Anyone else? For the same reasons or...?
