Let's Hear It For Bi Pride!
Bisexuals just can't catch a break, can they? Everybody misunderstands them! Straights and gays often both labour under exactly the same sorts of misinformed opinions about bisexuality, such as . . .
Aren't bisexuals just confused? Do they not know whether they're gay or straight? Why don't they just pick a side? Or are they playing both sides of the fence?
Isn't it hard to be straight and gay at the same time?
Or is something else going on?
But even bilingual people can't catch a break!
Bisexuality is its own valid and unique sexual orientation which is not straight, gay or a mixture of the two.
Bi people don't turn straight when they're with an opposite-sex partner. They don't turn gay when they're with a same-sex partner. Bi people are always bisexual, whether they're in or out of a relationship.
Personally, I believe that if people were simply left to their own devices, free of cultural and religious attempts to control and enslave human sexuality, most people would quite naturally be bisexual to some degree or another. I think the two endpoints on the Kinsey Scale -- exclusive heterosexuality and exclusive homosexuality -- would be the minority sexual orientations. The majority sexual orientation would be bisexuality.
Even in today's society, as those cultural and religious constraints weaken, we are seeing a dramatic increase in open bisexuality. YAY! Human freedom is a beautiful thing!
