You are saying that they can never settle on having one or the other as a permenant partner, they have to have both?

You also said that was the majority of people and that being only gay or only straight is actually the minority.

About six. I was madly in love with John Clark.

So, at six, you were not only thinking of about sex (sounds like you should have been removed from your parents), you then made a conscious choice to only be sexually attracted to men? Really?

I reread this and I understand that you are saying bisexuals are attracted to both genders. My question would be does a bisexual person ever choose his identity and pick a monogamous relationship with one gender?

Didn't you ever have a boy you liked when you were a child? Probably not.

I said nothing of the kind. Bisexuals can have permanent relationships with one person. It doesn't mean they can't be attracted to other people; they just choose not to act on it--you know, like everyone else can.

The second statement is true. Many are bisexual with a pronounce preference, but also have occasional attractions to the less-favored gender.

I seriously doubt Foo said anything of the sort that you CLAIM she did. You're hardly what I would call a credible poster, and I haven't kept up on this silly dispute between you and Foo, so I can't offer any opinion one way or the other.
Ok ocean thanks! I'll chalk it up to -I am like foo, and have NO ANSWER.:)

I pray you also consider the deal, if you're wrong about God.
Since you can't answer an easy question, and have "your own " moral line as well.

Liking a boy at six doesn't equate with choosing to only be sexually attracted to one gender over another. In fact, you actually made my point. Who one is attracted to is not a choice, but a chemical reaction in the brain.

Identity? We're not talking about identity, but sexual orientation, and that person's orientation is bisexual. It is not a choice.

Of course bisexual people have monogamous relationships. With a person, not a "gender". Why wouldn't they?

Damn, you're stupid.

Ocean, your lying to yourself on life.

I'll try and and ask you the question again.
I believe you said you stand for womens "sexual " and reproductive " rights.

If a woman "with a kid at home " " CHOOSES " to go out for the night and "let loose " "at a bar ", and she brings home a man, and has sex, is that woman a whore, "in your eyes? "

Pretty straight forward question, the is between you and I.
I'll see if you will answer, or continue "your " game, like the others do.

Ok, with what YOU just wrote in.mind, what about all the MANY MANY MANY people who are sexualy attracted to kids?????

Who they CHOOSE, usually has to which kids the have access to.

God make them that way, or if you say you don't believe in God -are they born that way?

See YOU HAVE NO ANSWER.

I HAVE AN ANSWER.

We ARE ALL BORN WITH A SIN NATURE. THAT NATURE KNOWS NO BOUNDS.

It makes women want to lay with women -men lay with men -adults lay with children.

IT IS THE SAME DRIVING FORCE BEHIND ALL.EVEN.THOUGH SOME ARE WAY WORSE, OR ILLEGAL.

YET WHERE DOES ONE DRAW THE LINE? SRY -I REALIZE REBELS WANT NO LINE.

Docs: Same-sex marriage benefits kids

"Although Jackson did not provide specifics on the study, Perrin dismisses such concerns and says virtually all the studies evaluating the benefit of having both a mother and a father in the home compare the situation to a one-parent family, typically the mother alone—not to two parents of the same sex.

“This is something that people are often concerned about, but in reality it just isn’t really a problem for these families,” she said.“It’s very clear that other people in the child’s family environment can substitute for a male or a female influence.”

In reaching its conclusion, the American Academy of Pediatrics authors reviewed more than 30 years of scientific research evaluating children raised by gay and lesbian parents.

“There’s no relationship between parents' gender or sexual orientation and their children's well-being,” Perrin said.“Our conclusion is based in the fact that there’s no evidence at all that same-sex marriage harms children in any way.”

I'd bet you, like me, know several childfree couples who are enjoying themselves and their lives exactly as they wish and have planned. Some folks around here think (or try making others believe) they are missing out without having children. They couldn't be more wrong in a lot of cases. Sure, there are folks who'd've loved to have kids but couldn't. Does that justify forcing all pregnant women to accept their unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies? Not in a heartbeat!
(pun intended)
Katie, you'd win your bet and then some, because I know quite a few childfree people, both individuals and couples, who are enjoying life very much without children. For some idiotic reason, the idea of women and men having happy and productive lives WITHOUT children makes some anti-choicers almost barking mad (as in crazy, not angry). I often wonder why that is, when the choice NOT to have kids doesn't personally affect THEM at all.

In my experience, I've noticed that people who are secure and happy with their choices in life don't go full speed loco (nuts) because others may choose NOT to marry, have children, or be part of some religion or church. It's the ones who secretly AREN'T that happy with their life choices (but can't or won't admit it) who go on hatefilled rants at anyone who doesn't fit into their tiny little idea of "normal."

You can ask me this stupid question all you want, G. This is part of whatever dispute with Foo you're having, and I'm having NONE of it. Got problems with that? Too bad.

So it is possible not to act on your attractions.

It may be true that the other women on this thread have attractions for other women but you have to leave me out.

To claim it was a joke is ridiculous. We have seen the comments on the subject from that person, and that one is just another in a series of ignorant statements. Fundies have no clue beyond "duh, God don't like it".

She's an ass.
And what does "black as Obama" even mean?
