Because most women aren't going to want to be with a man who wants other men. Many bisexuals have desires for both genders they need satisfied. Many gay men are able to tolerate that more especially if the bisexual man prefer men more but needs a fix for the opposite gender by having occasional sex with women. When a woman has a man that also likes other men that is something she cannot compete with. It's not like she is competing with another woman in the picture. She doesn't have the body parts a man does. Many bisexual men are married to woman and/or have children. Since they truly like the opposite gender too they can more easily pass off as straight men. They become comfortable living the privileged, discrimination free life as a "straight" man. In some ways while bisexuals have it easier than gay men they can have it much harder at the same time. It's like they are living much more of a double life even more so than a closeted gay man.

It's kind of weird how anything I post questioning why certain things don't show up on Topix but do other places, etc. gets deleted within a few minutes. Either Topix has some bugs that needs fixing or someone is using censorship and selective editing and it's ONLY when it is LGBT issues even on other Topix forums.

The recent changes the site made to this and other forums where their new banner appears has resulted in a bug. Stories being posted to via the link to a comments page accessible on the news wire, don't post to the forum with the link to the article, like it used to. I sent them a half dozen or so links to stories where this happened last week, they still haven't fixed the problem. They used to let editors fix roboblogger's routine f'ups when they made it to the forum like this, but that access went away a while back.
