What do you really think of bisexual people?
When I think about them, I think they are cool...very cool.
I think that they prefer living outside of the boxes others try and put them in. Defying categorization is a really positive thing in my book.
People have different ideas of what it means to be bisexual. I definitely prefer guys but I'm still plenty attracted to women and am definitely open to having sex and relationships with women as well as men. But some people seem to think it has to be an equal attraction to be considered bisexual.
Also I think it can be harder for bi guys than girls. Bi girls are in, especially with the guys. But for bi guys, there are girls that wouldn't want to be with a guy who's been with guys. And I've heard a lot of gay guys say they won't date a bi guy because they worry he'll leave them for a woman.
Also I think it can be harder for bi guys than girls. Bi girls are in (I agree. Why are they hot?), especially with the guys (You say this from observation? I have the same standpoint). But for bi guys, there are girls that wouldn't want to be with a guy who's been with guys (I've heard this before). And I've heard a lot of gay guys say they won't date a bi guy because they worry he'll leave them for a woman(This, not so much).
that's it Chuck - you nailed it. I have only (and probably ever will) have had sexual relations with women but that doesn't mean there aren't things about naked males that get my "attention"....I think most guys suppress that interest because they don't want to look like "fags".
I'm not ashamed to admit certain things about guys turn me on - but I also have the ability to choose who I have sex with and for what reason...and so far that's only led to heterosexual relations but I'm not willing to totally dismiss a homosexual event in the future and really, WHO GIVES A SHIT? It's really no ones business expect for the people involved and if they're both consenting adults....that's up to them!
I agree whole-heartedly with the foregoing opinions (except that I don't believe that any sexual orientation is a choice)--live and let live...whatever turns you on...etc. Besides, if you'll check a large number of profiles on this site (though admittedly perhaps not a statistically meaningful portion of the general population), those who are bisexual to one degree or another are in the majority. (Hell, I have a 1% straight streak myself!) Remember Alfred Kinsey and his bombshell study of male sexuality? He proposes a sliding scale, from 1 to 7, of human sexuality...i.e., that human beings can be found at any point between the two absolute opposite poles. In addition, he pronounces bisexuals the best-balanced of all. And as for the "acceptability" of women's being bi--think of it. Lesbian activity (genuine or faked) is a sure-fire seller for pornography aimed at straight men: double your pleasure, double your lust. Could also be a warped macho misogynistic attitude toward women as less important human beings than men...???
I am so happy to see all these people with positive attitudes about bisexuals.
The only thing I can add to the comments already made is that I've noticed that a lot of bi people (and some gay and lesbian people) who would have called themselves bi (or gay or lesbian) before now call themselves queer, mainly because they're not 50/50 or 100% anything.
We have a winner!:biggrin1:
Taste is not arguable, and whereas I am definitely not bi- sometimes I wish I was... I am guessing they would have double the options and a playing field twice as large Good for them.
The same as I think of everyone else, that they're human beings.
Since you started this, what do you think about bi-sexual people?
People have been asking what I think about bi-sexual people so here it goes.
I think they're just regular people like everyone else.
I just posted this because I lived in an area that had a lot of people that hated non-straight people. I was just wondering what everyone else though. Plus, this is only my third thread I've started anyway. I had to think of something I haven't seen yet on here.
Well if you think about it, girls are probably turned off to bi guys because they are thinking that their dick has just been up some guys butt, which, no disrespect, but if you aren't already immune to that thought, it is kind of disgusting. I mean, if I had a vagina, (lol) I wouldn't want something in me that had recently been used as a toilet plunger ...
I have a lot of bisexual friends, I even had a boyfriend who was bisexual, but.. lol, he ended up cheating on me with a girl. Well, I guess bisexual people make good friend, ahah.
but isn't Bi a valid category?
I just love being bi... Its just comfortable to know that you arent limited to what you can go for
Since I consider myself somewhat bi and have many friends who define themselves in a similar way, I'd say that I love the hell out of bisexual people.
Validated by whom? There's hardly a universal consensus on what being bisexual even means.
But you truly are missing my point here. What I'm saying is that categories limit as much as they define; they pigeonhole people into accepting other people's preconceptions about their own sexuality as reasonable and valid for them, their sexual expression and how they choose to self-identify (or not).
I believe that only I am qualified to judge my sexual activities, no one else. Accepting a preconceived label of what others decide best describes sex without self-reflection and without regard for one's individuality and uniqueness is neurotic and self-limiting.
