Having read a post from a young person asking if their bisexual status should be announced openly. I replied with my opinion as follows, and would be interested in other people's observations and feelings on the subject. ==Quote:=== Bisexuality seems to be unacceptable by both sides of the sexual continue-um. Most straights and most gays don't understand or accept bisexuality, and in my experience, both sides of the fence seem to feel threatened by it. I get the feeling that both gays and straights might even have a mistrust of bi people. I guess people might compare it to a "double agent" in a spy story. Bisexuals probably remain closeted and invisible to society, probably all society, gay, straight and even a bisexual society, presuming there is one. How do psychologists even get to study this lifestyle / orientation when this category is so difficult. With bisexuality being so mysterious, no one seems to know who the bisexuals are, not even the bisexuals. We don't know what percentage of the world is bi, we don't know their shopping habits, musical taste, job description. They seem to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Are they true to themselves? Can they be faithful?
