No Surprise for Bisexual Men

The finding is not likely to surprise bisexuals, who have long asserted that attraction often is not limited to one sex.The finding is not likely to surprise bisexuals, who have long asserted that attraction often is not limited to one sex. But for many years the question of bisexuality has bedeviled scientists. A widely publicized study published in 2005, also by researchers at Northwestern, reported that “with respect to sexual arousal and attraction, it remains to be shown that male bisexuality exists.” That conclusion outraged bisexual men and women, who said it appeared to support a stereotype of bisexual men as closeted homosexuals. In the new study, published online in the journal Biological Psychology, the researchers relied on more stringent criteria for selecting participants. To improve their chances of finding men aroused by women as well as men, the researchers recruited subjects from online venues specifically catering to bisexuals.

Any male who would even consider having unspeakably filthy, disease spreading sex with another diseased queer is himself an out-and-out queer, the so-called "bisexuality" being a cover for their filthy perversions. That's why all queers are objectively mentally deranged.

I believe there are bisexuals but I know I'm completely gay. I'm happy being gay.

Yet that is what's on your mind (in the most hysterical terms,) apparently for 22 hours per day.

Who is your post about, again?

I think the vast majority of bisexuals have a major and a minor, anyway. 50-50 - about as likely as someone being truly ambidextrous. Just not that common.

Ooops... you silly knuckledragger... you were supposed to take the green pill, not the yellow one. No wonder you're such a freak. Take the proper pills and it will all make a lot more sense in the morning. Now go be a good little throwback and play elsewhere and leave the nice adults alone.

i sence trouble here if i were you id be getting my facts straight before shooting off slanderous crap like that. Sexually Transmitted Diseases affect BOTH sexes not just males and not just females. Your blatent hatred for a group of people suggests to me that you have these tendancies yourself and use this as a discuise to put people off the scent so to speak. Does the sight of 2 women engaging in sexual activities enrage you ????? Fuck wit

While I don't doubt there are indeed some people who are truly bisexual, I have to wonder how many ARE just subconsciously willing an attraction to the opposite sex because they can't quite come to grips with their same-sex attractions. There were also millions of gay men who had themselves convinced they were straight for years. But considering the increased societal acceptance of homosexuality, I imagine there are less people who feel any need to pretend on any level anymore.

Either way, it doesn't really matter what they are, so long as they are truly happy.

Many homophobes are really hiding the fact that they are gay. In years from now when you take your first man in your pooper, you will remember this post.

The people I see as doing the most pretending are gay men who are 100% exclusively gay. My son is bi-sexual and invites both boys and girls home to spend the night. His gay friends are always trying to convince him his attraction to females is not real, or that he is trying to hide the fact that he is gay. He doesn't understand why gay people can't accept him the way he is, why they insist that his "straight" life is a lie. My advise to my son has been to find another bi-sexual boy and leave the gays to themselves. He rarely lets the girls know he also enjoys having sex with boys because some of them have freaked out about it.

I imagine that most all people have both opposite and same sex attractions at least once in a while in their lives and with some the attractions are both at the same time.

I know of some people who are non-sexual in that their attraction seems to be to certain people regardless of their sex. And there may be all kinds of other sexualities we do not even know exist.

Bi-sexual men do not have to choose one or the other and if they are with an opposite sex partner they are NOT trying to hide the gay.

There is scientific evidence which shows that the loud obnoxious homophobes have secret homosexual fantasies that they are trying to supress.

The funny thing is, when they come here to harass all the gays, you probably don't like them very much, but someday you might be the guy who takes ones of these guys home and gives him his first role in the hay with a fellow male. You many end up loving the people whom today you hate.

You and the other homophobes are the ones with the mental derangements. No normal healthy person would write the crapola that you write.

The only cure for you homophobes is having gay sex. Once you do it you will be cured and can then move on and live a normal healthy life. We all want you to be happy but to be happy you first must be gay.

Having been to some, shall we say, "unusual" parties in my youth, I can assure you that there really and truly are people that are bisexual. When a guy can switch back and forth between eating out a woman and blowing a guy while maintaining an erection that could etch glass--he's bi! No way could I accomplish that. Not a chance.

Most of the bi folks I know tell me that, while they are absolutely bisexual, they recognize an emotional affinity that's usually a bit stronger for one gender over the other. That fits in with Kinsey's conclusion that very few people, if any, are equally bi. Most are bi, but leaning slightly one way or the other.

I have a friend that's fooled around for years with a guy that is very happily married to a woman. They have two kids and a really great life together. He's bi and she's not. While his wife is his one and only true love of his life, he really, really, really likes cock every now and then. Lucky me!! It was all above boards, everyone knew what was going on, and everyone had a wonderful time.

Their kids are in high school now with both their parents still happily married to each other and still very much in love. How many high school kids can say THAT these days??

I'm guessing they would also get a rise out of watching a dog copulating with a woman, proving that they are not only bisexual but want to have sex with animals as well.

I can assure you that identifying myself as bisexual has nothing to do with a fear of admitting to be gay. If I was gay, I would have no problem admitting it. I can also assure you that I do not subconsciously "will" an attraction to anyone. But I do find it interesting that I've run into some gay men who, without knowing me, assume I must be confused or on the fence. It would seem those gay men are believers that sexual orientation is a choice.

But the main problem I have with gay men who are "anti-bi," is that they ASSUME I have to have BOTH men and women to be fulfilled, or that I'm only interested in no-strings-attached type of hookups, so they automatically say they would not date a bisexual. I'm quite the opposite. I'm more interested in monogamous, long-term relationships than casual hookups. Bisexuals face pretty much the same stereotyping and and prejudice that gays do. Being bisexual does not let you easily escape homophobia from the non-GLBT, but you cam sometimes face even MORE prejudice from gays. Some people who don't like people judging them based on their sexual orientation, will do just that when it comes to bisexuals.

I'm not judging you, since I don't know you. If you're bisexual, more power to you. Be bi be happy.

But I do know gay men who for years had themselves convinced they were straight. Their first step in admitting they were actually gay was saying they were bisexual. Eventually they were able to admit to themselves (the hardest part) that they were gay. It's not about choice, but rather denial. People can convince themselves of just about anything and honestly 100% believe it at the time.

I understand what you're saying about denial. I lived through that as well. And being bisexual, it was actually easier for me to deny my attraction to men for many years, since my attraction to women was not fake. But my denial was more to myself than to others. I know YOU were not judging me. I'm just letting you know that my identifying as bi is not a denial of being gay.

In fact, considering some of the prejudice I've faced when the subject of my being bi comes up, I have sometimes thought about denying that I'm BI, and just identify as gay... but I shouldn't have to be in any closet any more than anyone else. I should not have to hide the fact that I'm bi just because some people have prejudices and misconceptions about it. I've identified as bisexual since I came out over 11 years ago, and I know that I always was and always will be. Even if I'm currently leaning more towards men, that doesn't mean I could not end up with a woman if I were to meet the right one.

So, even though I'm sure there have been gay men (and women) that identified as bisexual as a denial of being gay, that concept doesn't compute for me.... and there are probably a lot more legitimately bisexual people than you may think. I'm only saying this because your post seemed to imply that you think a lot of people identifying as bisexual really aren't.
