Some people are attracted to women; Some people are attracted and some, if Sigmund Freud, Dr. Alfred Kinsi and millions of self-described bias are believed, are attracted to both sexes.
Critics who claim critics talk about homosexuality, usually homosexuals, but they are disagreeing with their homosexuality or just clinic “You’ve gone gay, straight or false,” as some gay men put it.
In a new study, a team of psychiatrists determines genital emotions in response to direct images of men and women. It is found in psychologists that those who identify themselves as both are actually terrified by the other males, usually by only one or the other.
As a proud bisexual man, for years I’ve had to navigate the complicated gray area that my identity occupies on the sexuality spectrum. Despite all of the gains the LGBT community has made, bisexuals are still looked upon with confusion — or outright scorn — by gays, lesbians, and straight people alike. From people asking me if I was “full-blown gay yet” to others questioning my motivations, I’ve probably heard it all.
Unfortunately, the binary thinking of those who deny bisexuality’s existence ultimately oppresses everyone by perpetuating unflinching standards of identity, whether they be hetero-normative or homo-normative. Being intimate with someone of the same sex doesn’t mean you’re gay, just like being intimate with someone of the opposite sex doesn’t mean you’re straight — it just means you fall somewhere in the beautiful, fluid spectrum of sexuality.
This is the first and most pervasive lie about bisexuality. Some people simply can’t fathom a sexuality in which individuals are attracted to more than one gender. You can test the waters, but you eventually must pick a side, the thinking goes. But bisexuals don’t need science — or the approval of those attracted to only one gender — to prove that they exist.
