    I guess you don't have a clue how it feels to be bisexual so you don't understand it, or have failed to even try.
    Im sick of people bagging bisexuals out as 'confused', or 'greedy', get that one a lot.
    Only you know how you feel, nobody else can tell others how they feel. It's something inside.

    And greedy? What...the....?

Of course not, you're attracted to certain traits in certain men. Further these traits might not always be the same, you might be attracted to one man's smile, another man's butt, another man's sense of humour. I assume that bisexuality works the same way; you're attracted to certain things, however the issue of gender isn't as important as it might be for someone else. You might be attracted to the smile, butt or sense of humour regardless of whether it's a man or woman who is rocking it.

    (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.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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

    Yes this. One of my closest friends is a lesbian. She has recently been with men as well. She's says she's attracted to them, their personality, something in their looks....not just their gender. It's something she's recently discovered for herself. And the thing is she lost friends over it!

    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.

    Oh I get it, you being bisexual means you want all of the menz and all off the womenz all to yourself!

    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.

    If it were a choice he would choose to be straight as life would be easier
    This makes me sad!! Makes me want to cry hearing that a man would rather choose to be straight because being gay causes so much pain!

    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!!
