Only ignorant people think bisexuality is an invention, the result of greed, indecisiveness or 'a phase'.

Sexual orientation is a spectrum, so there are those at either end, and those in the middle.

People can't choose what they find attractive.

People can't choose by themselves because society chooses for them. We are brainwashed into what we are from the very beginning.

that's not true. attraction is innate

Is it, though? How many people would be attracted to Bieber or Cyrus from birth and how much of people's attraction to them is learned?

In this case, I'd be willing to say most of it has to be learned. I'm not saying that sexuality isn't innate, just that attraction might possibly not be so solid that it cannot be swayed by anything else.

I get your point, a lot of societies view of what is attractive and what isn't is impacted by conditioning by the media, but I still don't think that has anything to do with sexual orientation. &whether society has swayed your view of whats attractive or not you're still gonna be attracted to what your body tells you to be attracted to, even if you don't admit it

So there is no relation between what societies view as attractive and what individuals who are part of them do?

People don't realize that bisexuality isn't just liking men and women 50/50, that you can be bisexual and like someone of the same sex more than the opposite sex, same in vice versa.

So someone that is a guy going for guys more than girls but is still attracted as girls can be seen as gay by someone that is ignorant on the topic, but that's just not the case.

I think it's real yes. One of my good friends has this motto "why not do both?" Honestly if he were gay in denial it would defeat the whole point of the saying. Plus he's dated girls before for long periods of time. Anyways I think bisexuality is real.

Yes, it's real. I like both sexes. Though I like men more because I find them more beautiful than women.

In which sense are men more beautiful?

I really can't explain it. I just prefer males.

I like both. I've been with both. Seems pretty real to me.

have you been in both relationships? for real? how does it feel?

I think sexuality in general is a hoax.

Sex is just a government plot, created for the mere reason to distract us from the real problems.

Don't fuck each other! It's all a conspiracy!

I think I understand where the bisexuality disbelief comes from. For many homosexuals in denial, claiming to be "bisexual" is a step or a phase towards their true self. At the same time, heterosexual people seem to believe that if you are tainted as a homosexual, you cannot possibly be into the opposite gender as well.

I do believe in bisexuality though, yet, as many have written here, I think that there is always a stronger preference. For some people however, this preference can shift over time.

Regardless of all this, I do dislike how certain people claim to be bisexual just to appear interesting, specially girls who want guys to fantasize them with other girls.

There are thosee who use the bisexual label as a stepping stone before they admit they're fully gay. There are fully straight people.
Bisexuality is real. If you doubt that then you're a fucking moron.

Everyone I know who has claimed to be 'bi' is now totally gay, or straight. It's a phase to me.

In the community were I live there is several guys living alone and they say to be bisexual. Nobody asks them about their sexual options but they care to inform I don't know why!
I realize talking to them they definitely are gays in denial.
They say all the time they are straight but they also like to do it with gay guys and than they find they are bi. Otherwise they say to be gay but they like it with straight gays than they think they are gay.
But here comes the thing. Talking with them in all matters they are pretty gay in their way of thinking, talking about typical guys issues and women as men do talk about women.
Until today I only found one single guy that for sure he was bi. He had in his head the two options divided as if he had a switch. Incredible thing.
That switch never found in any other guy claiming to be bi. In my eyes they were all gay guys that did not like to be gay or straight that did not like to be straight and either or both very confused when in came to talk about sex or relationships with both genders.
In this site I find lots of guys starting post saying they are straight but this or that.
If you are straight you don't start a post saying to be straight coz to be straight is normal. Rarely someone starts saying to be gay and only gay. Yes there is a few.
Were I come from regular people does not talk about that. People have the right to be what they want to be and its not an issue. Guys here can get married, adopt children etc.etc.
By the way...sometimes I feel this days to be bisexual is...fashion. Like all chances of getting sex are open no matter the gender. What matters is to have pleasure no matter with whom.
What I find all the time is gays in denial. It must be complicated!!!!!

that's right both sexes were sexy in the best way.., depends on how we see it.
Comment Hidden (show)
I wouldn't mind being bi-sexual myself. You get the best of both worlds. It would be great to be able to look at men AND women in the same sense that every straight guy/gal looks at the opposite sex. Sure some you will find that aren't your type, but being attracted to both sexes its not like you would be out of choice. Its like, in my fantasy, having twice as many women in the world around and to choose from.
Comment Hidden (show)
Could be wrong, but true bisexuality is impossible. You will find that you're attracted more to one gender than another, even if just a little...

You don't have to be attracted to both sexes equally to be bisexual

True. I guess I was saying that bisexuality is not an absolute (meaning that if it was , it WOULD BE a split down god middle

I'm bi myself, so yeah. It does exist! People are just confused by the bi-being, so they say it doesn't exist.

I appreciate a good looking body on a girl or guy, some Iam attracted to , most not, just because you have a cock don't mean I want it, same with tits and pussy, unless they are nice looking then it probably turns me on

No, it's not real. Those that are labeled bisexual are just so horny that they don't care who (or what) they have sex with. Wanton sluts.

I think he is being sarcastic. Even then, if they didn't care about who they have sex with just because they want sex, that is still classified as bisexuality.

I think some would reclassify that as pansexual, since it's broader than just male or female.

Considering how many people have said they are bisexual and later choose a side I think it means your sexually confused. A lot of people say they are bi and eventually pick a side. If it is real most of the people claiming to be bisexual are not really into both. I think a lot of people claim to be bisexual since they don't want to feel guilty about choosing another side.

@: Riddler
Sexual attraction isn't a choice, it isn't possible for someone to pick who they are attracted to.

Lots of people who are bisexual are not equally attracted to both sexes. Some people are sexually attracted to both sexes but only romantically attracted to one sex. Most people automatically assume someone is heterosexual if they are in an opposite sex relationship, and homosexual if they are in a same sex relationship. That isn't always the case.

So you are saying people are not free to love who they wish? Very narrow minded of you. We should have a choice of who we choose to date. Be it male or female and its incredibly close minded that you think you can dictate who people get to love.

@: Riddler
I am not saying that at all, of course people are free to love who they wish. We can't choose who we are attracted to, but we can definitely choose who we form relationships with and who we have sex with

@: bfus
but what exactly the reason why people get attracted to both sexes, if they can just choose one? because two is better than one, isn't it?

i'm with you. it's definitely possible to be bisexual, but having a dick in your ass while your making out with a girl is just nasty for everyone. what i mean is: after like the age of 21 they should decide what they want: boys or girls. it's just common courtesy.
Comment Hidden (show)
For all you morons who claim to support the LGBT community, i think you don't realize that when you say that sexuality is fluid, you do nothing but give a slap to the face to gay people and everything they stand for. Because most gay people claim that you are born that way and you can't change what you are. So, who the fuck is right in the end?

fluid not in the sense of changing at will fluid in the sense that there is a spectrum for orientatation along which there are infinite points, & the terms gay and "straight" & even bisexual should be used more for communication purposes (fitting a label to you for the purpose of describing part of your identity) rather than worrying about fitting yourself to the label. In the end it is what it and you are what you are no matter what you call it, if you don't worry about what you call it and have an identity crisis everytime it doesn't fit perfectly. Since the spectrum is full of infinite points and only a few labels people have crises when they don't fit a label, but their point along the spectrum is just as real no matter who likes it, those at either end. We might all do better if we must label to accept that this spectrum is there and identify by far left, along the middle, etc. But myself, I prefer descriptive phrases over any labels, thathat's really owning your unique orientation. Such as I am attracted to Susan, I like the man with the short brown hair, I dream of cock, I enjoy watching women dance, etc.
