    No, he's just disguising his insecurity in the fact that a guy can be attracted to both guys and girls by dismissing it with a joke.

    The "g0ys" and the "bisexuality-deniers" represent two extremes within the gay world who help reinforce each others' existence.

    A bisexual that really does not have a gender preference in their sexual partner is so incredibly rare if it exists at all.

    At what percentage would one be considered being a homosexual, heterosexual, or bisexual?

    60/40 same gender: bi?
    61/39 same gender gay?

    Is it a quantitative thing? if you've ever had a sexual partner of the opposite gender, are you bisexual? There is too much grey area here.

    Either we are all bi or none of us are. Everybody has got a preference.

    If it is a societal pressure that is making would be gay men sleep with women, is that considered bisexuality?

    Like I said: True Life: I'm a gay christian.

    I saw part of it was retarded. It show'd "bi" people who were dating guys and girls at the same time. It was ridiculous. Pretty much said anyone who is bi is cheating in some mixed up love triangle.

    G'day I'm a pure homosexual; no bi in me. But......... I have been in a biicon_wink.gif

    A bi person is some-one who belongs to both communities. Nothing wrong with that, they just are not gay,as they are bi. But they are not straight either.

    I agree. In my own opinion, bisexuals are merely people who haven't "discovered" their own sexual preference yet.

    WARNING:RANT

    It really is no wonder that we, as a community, are so ridiculously divided. All of this name calling is nothing more than an extended way to keep the "terrible two's" within us. So the so-called g0ys want to distance themselved from whatever. Guess what? You are still gay. And those of us who resort to being drawn in to the fray are helping the divisiveness. And of course, there couldn't possibly anything caled bisexual and heaven forbid the drugs the people who call themselves transgendered are on! My god people, enough is f**king enough. Need to direct your anger at something? How about the emails, phone calls, video logs to the elected officials about DOMO, ENDA, DADT, Marriage, Hate Crimes Legislation, all of it until we are equal under the law. THEN, if you really must resort to this childishness, then so be it. icon_evil.gif

    Rant ended. (Side note-I was just announcing a show and it turned into this?)

    AMEN! We've got more important things to deal with.

    And as a living, breathing, honest-to-god bisexual man, the whole concept of "bi now gay later" is just plain offensive. Is it true that society sometimes makes gay men claim bisexuality to try to fit in? Definitely. But that doesn't mean there aren't true-blue bi men and women out there. And they don't deserve ridicule for their sexuality.

    To be honest, there have been times in my life that I wish I was entirely gay. It would have made my last relationship ten times easier, since it never would have happened. Instead, I broke the heart of a woman I truly and deeply loved because I couldn't keep papering over my desire to be with a man. And that problem has cut the opposite way as well. So please don't think that being bi is always just an excuse for not wanting to identify as gay.

    I'm proud to be bi, just as I'm proud to have so-called "gay" aspects of my personality as I do "straight" aspects. In the end we're all just people, who should be able to love whoever they want to give their hearts to.

    Pfft. A well-informed source you are not. Hmmm...that was Yoda-like, eh? icon_razz.gif

    Do you realize that we are one of the only societies that even labels sexual orientation (or sexuality, for that matter) categorically? You didn't? I'm not surprised as what you just hashed was basically ignorant bullsh*t.

    Bisexuality absolutely does exist and it doesn't fall between points on a dimensional scale. Sexual orientation is defined predominantly by who a person is sexually attracted to and there are many men and women that are attracted to both sexes. 'Choosing sides' is unnecessary regardless of percentages. This said, sexual orientation is also based on emotional attraction, intellectual attraction, fantasy-content, and many other subjectively defined variables that can include one sex or both sexes. Once again, predominance matters little.

    Meanwhile, what does gay Christian prove? Given that the bible can be interpreted in myriad ways (even if you buy into the hell and damnation of homosexuality that many denominations imply) gay and Christian is just as much a choice as gay and non-Christian, or heterosexual and Christain. Yes, the permutations go on and on. The point? That comparison was feeble at best. icon_confused.gif

    yes I know bisexuals exists, and I myself have no issues with em, they are all I dated in my 20s. A bisexual with a wife and kids; most of em did not won't a commitment, because of their wife and kids, and I was apart of their hidden life.

    But what I don't understand is: why is it so, that when I bisexual man with a wife and kids is found out, or comes out. He is put under the banner of gay? He is not gay nor straight, he is a bisexual.

    Why was Broke back Mountain totted as a gay love storey when it was a bisexual love story about the complexities of being a bisexual, and having a wife, and being in love with another man.

    It's why I as a pure homosexual. I have trouble standing under the banner of GLBT, as I don't relate to any of em. I'm a pure homosexual, and I gave back my gay card at 25 because of all the wicked goings on I seen while working for the gay community. So 20 something years latter. I don't have anything to do with gay culture; I'm a fag.

    I'm not a bisexual, certainly not a lesbian, and I'm more than content with the sex I was born, and have no wish to change that.

    So why are we all shoved under the one banner? It's not the straight doing the shoving either.

    I will beleive in bi sexuals when I meet one who sneaks out on his boyfriend to fool around with women rather than the other way round.

    Hasn't happened yet.

    That you know of.. In my own personal experience, I label myself as gay, but I can be sexually attracted to both men and women. In fact I've only had sex with women. The reason I label myself as gay is because I think I'm more attracted to men than I am to women, hence the "sexual preference". Would I be opposed to a relationship with a women? Absolutely not. It's about who you click with on an emotional level as well as a physical level.

    Alright, let's hear a bunch of guys that don't know me tell me how confused I am.

    I did say when I meet one. Or I suppose hear of one first hand from a reliable source.
    You can call yourself whatever you want, doesn't bother me. If it did bother me there are any number of men that have been naked in front of me that wouldn't have been there.
    And I never called anyone confused. Like I said I will beleive it exists when someone proves it to my satisfaction. Kind of like God. And in either case, until it happens I will pretty much ignore it, unless asked for my opinion. (I consider this thread to be an open request for opinion). I will not however attempt to proselytize anyone to my view.

    Although I might not always understand how a guy defines himself in regards to where he falls in the gay/straight/bi spectrum, as long as he isn't some guy who is sneaking out on his wife or girlfriend to get it on the DL, the least I can do is respect it. I look at it the same way I might ask straight people to look at homosexuality. It's not hurting me, so why should I care?
