What about re-conceiving what bisexuality is all about? Bi does mean two but we don't have to approach bisexuality as interest in two sexes (male & female).

When is the hetro society going to learn that its about love and attraction. not sex or gender. Many people feel, the are not using the option of discrimination. their choice is someone that is tender and makes them comfortable. its a mutual thing.

straight men do not think of love with every person they sleep with nor do women. Why do they not get it that Bi men and Women don't love just one person.

Every man wants a little love, every woman wants a little too. Who its with is no ones business.

It a major requirement that You must be a closeted gay to be a Republican. So much fear have they that they attack their own.

One would think they would make it easier for the GLBT's so they do not have to hide.

Wow is this post ever ill informed. How is somebody bi if they love just one person? Maybe if that one person is a freak with both genders. Republicans have done more for minorities than Dems ever will. Sorry but you really need to read a little bit

Bisexuality implies the ability to be in love or attracted to both Genders. But im sure you believe that unless your a normal straight person you are incapable of love.

Lets got off the political thing and talk about human sexuality. And that does not mean "sex" solely!!! Few people are 100% straight and few people are 100% gay. Almost all of us exist somewhere on a continuum of sexuality.... Why do we need labels? And why do men consistently pretend not to have warm, loving feelings for their buddies --- it's only because society suggests that it's not possible to love all people, albeit in different ways. And men are too intimidated and too insecure to admit that they can love more than one. Whether that includes sex is unimportant and no one's business.

The same way a person knows they are straight, even if they are only in love with one person.

Bisexually means having the capacity to be attracted to both genders, but does not require one to have relationships, or even sex, with BOTH genders at the same time.

I've passed gas smarter than you.
I'm straight. Does that mean I love every male human? No.
Do I find every
Let me try to explain it to you.
If you are straight, you are sexually/emotionally attracted to the opposite gender. It doesn't mean you'll find every member of the opposite gender sexually attractive.
I'd much rather do without than do Rush Limpbaugh or Fred Phelps.

If you are gay, you are sexually/emotionally attracted to the same gender. It doesn't mean you'll find every member of the same gender sexually attractive.

If you are bi, you are sexually/emotionally attracted to both genders. It doesn't mean you'll find every human sexually attractive.

As a gay man, it's impossible for me to know what it's like to be straight or bisexual. How can people comment on something they know nothing of?

Now this is just funny. Let me see straight meaning attracted to the opposite sex which could be one other person compared to bi sexual which is attracted to both sexes which can't be one person unless you are talking about hermaphrodites. Thanks for the laugh

You are aware that there is a difference between sex and love, right?

Honest AbeL: How is somebody bi if they love just one person?

ALAN: There are people who are bi, who love no one. Maybe they do not have sex with anyone either. There are sexuals who find they are sexually attracted to both sexes and can love both sexes.

My bi-sexual son enjoys both men and women. Right now he secretly meets a married guy for love making, who sneaks out on his wife.

HonestAbe" Maybe if that one person is a freak with both genders.

ALAN: Has there ever been a time where you were nice? As far as I can tell, you are the only freak posting here.

HonestAbe: Republicans have done more for minorities than Dems ever will.

ALAN: By being outed when caught in the men's room. But what does that have to do with bi-sexuality?

HonestAbe: Sorry but you really need to read a little bit

ALAN: You do not want to know what I think you really need.

ALAN: Your ignorance is astounding. Are you running for public office?

I think you are a good case for not letting two people of the same religion marry one another.

Do you think HonestAbeL ever has had sex? I mean with someone other than himself? Even if so, I doubt he understands anything beyond his own selfish needs.

I am a "straight" woman... but I truly believe that people fall in LOVE with a PERSON not their genitalia. Lust is based on the physical. Some people are more attracted to male physical attributes, others are attracted to female. I don't understand why it's such a problem for some people when a couple has a matched set.
Personally, I am attracted to males physically and mentally. Most women drive me crazy (in a bad way) but I do acknowledge that women are prettier. That doesn't make me bi, I don't think, but if it did,who cares?
I really don't know if I have a point here... other than I wish that classifications like "straight" "gay" "homosexual" "bisexual" etc weren't necessary! I mean seriously... does it really matter that much? Just like people for who they are... if attractions form, great... if not, everybody needs friends!*Shrug*

Straight men check other women out without being in love with them and gay men check other men out without being in love with them. Bi men check other people out of both genders without being in love with them.

Also if they get divorced or the spouse dies a straight man will only look for women and a gay man will only look for men. A bi man will be open to both.
Maybe if that one person is a freak with both genders.
What's wrong with intersexuals? They're people too.

What have Republicans done for minorities? I agree the Democrats haven't done as much as they should, but they've done more than Republicans.

Yes, because everyone who does not fit into your little carefully constructed gender boxes is a "freak" right? Well -- fu! That just demonstrates your lack of imagination and fear of honesty. No one else needs to live according to your rules.

It means they made a *choice*.

Regardless whether they "choose" a male or a female, they still have bisexual orientation from birth to death.

The rest of us have monosexual orientation (attraction to one sex only) and can't choose between the sexes.

Some of them are old maids that have never been loved. This chat room is the closest they ever get to intimate relations.
