(Please forgive me if I've completely misunderstood this, I don't mean any offence to any bisexuals among us.)
FirstTimeMummy2012, you should have a look at the Kinsey Scale.
I think anyone who is open to falling in love with someone no matter their gender is 'bisexual' in a way. I still believe it's possible I could fall in love with a man, but it's not happened so far. I've slept with men and dated them.
I consider myself a lesbian because I'm in a relationship with a female, and I'd probably date a female if we broke up. But I'd definitely not say there's no chance of me ever falling in love with a man as I believe I'm capable of loving anyone.
I'd say on the Kinsey scale I'd be a 4-5. a 4.5 if there was the option
I could not agree with this quote more on your link rainbow:
Males do not represent two discrete populations, heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheep and goats. It is a fundamental of taxonomy that nature rarely deals with discrete categories... The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects.
I'd probably give myself 2 on the Kinsey scale.

I am a sexual being.
Hope you are ok.
I am a believer in monogomous relationships myself, but people I know who are bisexual only have a relationship with 1 person, but are not restricted to only males or only females. If that makes sense.
I've noticed the idea that sexuality is a choice is usually held by religious people. There's been lots of these sorts of threads over the years and I've posed the question, that if god continues to create people that are gay doesn't that mean clearly he's ok with it? To date no one has ever responded. Here en-lies the reason I believe - religious people must believe it's a choice bc if they accept it's not, then that means god did make them that way and that sends their beliefs and teaching of the church into a spin. How can one disagree with something that god himself created? Therefore they have to contend it's a choice. Bc when it's free will, it can be open to criticism.
I wish that i could tell every gay man or women that amongst all the hate thrown at them i SUPPORT them!! And that they are perfect just the way they are!
Also i know it must be hard for this man that you are talking about, but i hope he knows he is being apart of history, a history that will one day be the reason why all gay teens in the future will happily and safely be open about their sexuality with out any fear!!
His part in creating that for future gay men and women is important!! And i hope he knows that he has helped others be open because he was brave enough to be open!!
And hopefully that will be soon!!
