It is my proposition that many people who call themselves bi-sexual do so because they are learning that they have a different kind of sexuality, they haven't yet figured out what it is, but they want to make a statement about it.
A link to the post from 3 years ago, "Your thoughts/musings/questions on bisexuality", started by Zerbie: -- (Now correct address)
Hey, ya gotta check out this post. It's got some great reading, a lot of vintage Zerbie, and one of Poetic's very first posts.
It went on for 3 pages, and contained a lot of people's observations. It makes interesting reading, all by itself.
There was a time in my life when I was hanging out with a bisexuality group called BECAUSE. The acronym, and other information can be found here:
It was my impression that the people that I was meeting had all different kinds of sexualities. They seemed to be from almost anywhere on the human sexuality map. Or as they put it:
The BECAUSE Conference is the premier weekend for bisexuals, queers, questioning, and all others who are neither one thing nor the other.
I notice that one of our members who joined Soulforce at about that time, who was looking for a way to break it to his parents that he was bisexual, is now trying to come to terms with being a MtF transsexual.
So I believe that the proper response to someone who says that they are bi is not
"Oh, you must be either gay or straight, you can't be both". but to have an understanding that this person is in the process of finding out just what they are.
Or,it is not so much that our sexualities that are determined before birth, but the path
that our sexualities will take, that was predetermined.
