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
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!
