Caitlín R. Kiernan buries her YA Mars story

Sadly, award-winning SF&F author Caitlín R. Kiernan has decided to bury “Romeo & Juliet Go to Mars,” her nascent Young Adult short story in which “lesbianism is the normative state” on the Red Planet, because of more pressing commitments. She hopes to unearth it at some point in the future and finish it as an adult story. You can read the details in her LiveJournal.

Well that was fast.

But seriously, is there anything to say about Lesbianism as a default behavior in a colonial society that Leguin, Butler, and "Tiptree" haven't already done to death?

Despite my screen name, I'm not being judgemental, just wondering. My imagination may be limited on such things.
