    I'm a 0 lol Never even been remotely attracted to a woman. I can feel another woman is beautiful, has great legs etc but it's not from a sexual basis. having said that, I totally agree sexuality is fluid. I don't think bi sexuals are confused, they simply are attracted to both men and women.

    Does this mean we're not lovers any more?

    Sometimes I hear parents say things along the lines of "I don't care if my child is homosexual, but would prefer they weren't because life will be easier for them."

    In what other context would be tolerate this kind of logic? "I'd prefer my child were white because life would be easier for them", "I'd prefer my child not have red hair and glasses because they'd be less likely to get teased", "I'd prefer my child be male so they have better employment prospects"...

    No. In those instances we see discrimination as the thing at fault, rather than the trait that is being discriminated against. It saddens me when people don't apply the same thought process to homosexuality.

    Worried that your homosexual child will lead a more difficult life? Then don't wish to change your child... change the world.

    Regarding the bisexuality being greedy or 'confused' - I'm sure there are some people who are bisexual who are in an open relationships. Just as there are heterosexual people who are in an open relationship. Being bisexual does NOT mean that somebody will jump at the chance to sleep with any old person.

    That's just not logical to think that way. It's like saying "I'm heterosexual so I will sleep with ALL men and I'm confused because I'm attracted to my DP *but* I watched a movie with a man in it the other day and I felt attracted to him".

    People can be bisexual and be in a commited relationship with a person of either gender. I think most people can admit they're in a relationship but have felt attraction to someone else (even while just at the cinema) at some point.

I remember reading an article a while back that said something along the lines of "Bisexuality is an inability to decide". So in other words perhaps they are innocently unaware of their true sexuality because they are confused. Perhaps they are merely experimenting with same sex sexualilty or have not yet decided what they're sexual orientations are. Perhaps they are in the process of coming out as gay and are using bisexual behaviour or identity as a comfortable stepping stone during the transitional period. Or, perhaps they know full well that they are gay but they call themselves bisexuals to escape the painful effects of homophobia, their own as well as other's people.

    I have nothing against either orientation. I am completely and totally straight and there has never been any doubt about that. I was always attracted to boys/men and one time in high school I had a girl kiss me and I hated every moment of it. It didn't feel right to me but I can understand how it can feel right for someone else.

    I don't believe in bisexuality but I'm not against it in any way. If I met someone randomly on the street or at work or wherever and they shared that they were bisexual it wouldn't change how I feel about them. As for gay couples, I'm not against them either in any shape way or form. It's not wrong, it's just different to what I know. Different does not = wrong.

    As for whether it's a choice or not .. I'm not sure. For me it wasn't a choice to be straight. It just was. But I do know of some people who had to choose in the end because they liked both and in the end it did turn out to be a stepping stone for them in their ultimate decision to live as a gay person.

    I hope this all makes sense ..

    I consider myself bi sexual and don't feel ambivalent about if i'm really gay or not. Not at all. I think i probably tend more towards relationships with men though but definitely have found myself attracted to women.

    I think it's entirely possible to be bisexual.

    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.
    No I don't have a clue how it feels and I never stated that I did. I haven't tried it because it doesn't interest me in the least point blank.

    Re read my post because I did not at any point bag anyone. If anything I said all to the contrary. The fact that you took such offense from something that wasn't even directed at you as I don't even know you is a reflection more so on you than it is on me.

    I have no problem with either "decision". As I said, I have friends on both sides.

    Excatly the world needs to change and fast!

    I dont ever want to hear a person say i wish i was straight so things would be easy, They shouldnt have to change anything!! they should be able to just be who they are openly and still be safe! And happy!
    They should never have to worry about bullying ever, and i hope that that change happens real soon!!
