    Yeah, I know everyone wants to lump us in with unicorns. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I guess I missed it. Oh well, don't know what the celebration should really entail.

    Anyway, I am more psyched today is Arthur's Day (the 250th Anniversary of Guinness). So Slainte!

    Dislike. Because you should know better. We should know what it's like to be thought of as fictional characters more than anyone, having grown up and been made to believe we were the only ones with same sex attractions. Obviously that wasn't true, why is bisexuality any different?

    Bisexuality is like a toaster which is just slightly too small for your bread. Not only is it slightly too small, but the "Bagel" setting burns the bread, while the "Fresh Pastry" setting leaves it warm, but stuck in this horrible existence between 'bread' and 'toast'.

    If sexuality were a toaster, I would return Bisexuality within the 30 day window given by my local retailer.

    Then, I would go to Target and pickup an easy-bake oven. It may only make cupcakes, but I fucking LOVE cupcakes.

    I, too, would much rather order two separate items.
    So indecisive.
    I would sample their meal. And likely switch meals with him.

    When it comes to food, I'm omnivorous.
    Not omnivorous with sexual partners. Only meat for me.

    You know I'm really getting tired of Bi-sexuals and other sexual deviants getting hated on and being scolded for not comforming to the rules of straight or gay.

    People there is such thing as a Kinsey scale and just because you identify as one thing doesn't necessarily tell the whole story. We're humyn and we evolve and grow; so does our sexual tendencies.. what turns us on in our 20's isn't necessarily going to be the same in our 30's 40's 50's etc.

    I'm a Queer Identifed, Gender Non-conformist male. That is I LIVE my life as a GAY MALE however, that's not the entire story and I'm not married to that "label". I don't attach myself to rules of gender either [I don't have a perferred gender pronoun (PGP); refer to me as he or she as you please]. One can identify as gay and still be attracted to womyn. You might not be able to connect with a female like you do a male or male bodied person but it's still there. I'm trying to to introduce gender identity too much into this topic (sexuailty and gender identity are 2 different animals) however, what if you're Gay indentified and fall for a Trans-person (MTF or FTM)? I can still find womyn (trans MTF included)very attractive but I can't connect like I do with a Male (Trans FTM included).

    I mean there's so much more to it and we should know better than to demean Bisexuality. It DOES exist and it IS real and contrary to popular belief, it is not a "gateway" to Gay-dom as much as we'd like to think it is.

    In fact I had a mentor who was Gay Identified and realised he was very much attracted and connected to womyn as well as men and now identifies as bi-sexual/queer. (Queer doesn't equate gay all the time for everyone).

    It amazes me the amount of ignorance and closed-mindedness that exists within the Gay comunity at times. We cannot expect to demand equal rights and everything else AND be ignorant about other people's chosen lifestyles. It doesn't work that way. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I am a closeted bisexual. My roommate and the m/f couples I have played with along with the gay and str8 guys I have brought home know that I am bi. It is amazing to me how some gay guys can be so brutally discriminatory, some even openly so. I have gone to the oldest gay bar in the county more than a few times with my dates for the evening and have been snubbed by more than a few gay guys because they know I practice for both teams.

    One screaming queen, arms flailing in all directions and in a voice loud enough to be heard by all within a 30 foot radius, said to me. "If you suck dick your gay plain and simple, get over yourself sista". I just burst out laughing in his face. I thought to myself, with all the discrimination that has gone on in the gay community for eternity, you'd think he'd be more tolerant. Oh well, to each his own.

    Many, including myself, believe that bi men and women (particularly the men), don't do anything to promote gay rights. It's easy to view bi's as nothing more than flies in the ointment. Those who jump from one side of the fence to the next make for great party favors, but it's hard to state a case for gay rights and that being gay isn't a choice when you add bisexuals to the equation.

    Other reasons for the "hate" include perceptions of bi's being selfish and inconsiderate, unable to settle down, homewreckers, etc.

    Don't jump down my throat for posting this. You ask why so many gays feel the way they do about bi's, and I'm telling you. It becomes harder to justify the bi lifestyle when you read so many posts from guys hurt by their bi boyfriends who decide they want to swing the other way for awhile. It doesn't matter whether or not it's a convenient excuse or an actual feeling they have; it bothers a lot of gay guys and gals. Right or wrong, that's the way it is.

    I think you have a well written post and some of it I agree with 100% (if it really matters what I think).

    I for one believe in gay rights. I am not sure I agree the case is made on the "choice" issue. Equal rights, between humans, shouldnt see color, ethnicity, sexual orientation as issues in either direction.

    The perception of bi's of being selfish and inconsiderate is out there for sure. My feeling is the bi's aren't the only one in the relationship contributing to being homewreckers in the encounter. The person doing the running around may also be to blame. And since gay men are probably the worst cheaters out there I would say that only complicates the equation. Unless its just a hookup I tell my potential partners exactly what they get with me. If you are dumb enough to fall for a player of any type, well Caveat Emptor. I have the ability to settle down, I was in a monogomous 25 year marriage and happily so.

    I don't know about bisexual women, but I do know from my first hand experience that bisexual men playing with bisexual men know what they get. They get sex, comraderie and discretion, that isnt even close to true with bi men playing with gay men or str8 women, that usually involves drama. Right or wrong, that's the way it is. (At least from my perspective)
