there is no bisexuality for males = those are just fags; who don't want to fully come out of the closet.

females can be bisexual.

been a fad for a long time.

It seems more of a fad of Bi with chicks and more gays are rising. It's just that no one hits them with stones anymore lol jk and like it's easier to be gay in this society now b/c it's just more acceptable, and being straight seems that you are a jerk. My thoughts on Homo, Bi, and even Heterosexuality: One shouldn't limit them self by definition of who they had or want to have sex with, the definition of man is infinite and beyond man's desires.

Fascinating question, I’ve noticed too within the last year or two that a lot of people, especially younger girls but not necessarily are identifying as bisexual. I’ve also noticed a little hostility towards bisexuals within the gay community. I identify as bisexual though I’ve never had sex with a man and don’t know if I will. In my opinion some kind of attraction is enough to know that you’re not traditionally “straight” but that’s just an opinion.

I think that it’s gotten easier to identify as gay in the last ten years, and it’s particularly easier to identify as a gay female. It used to be the case that female homosexuality was seen as an even worse sin than male homosexuality because men saw it as threatening to their manhood that women didn’t find them attractive, but since the late 90s it’s become something beyond a fetish to see two women together, it’s almost become a way of life and men proudly state their desire to see two women together and a lot of women desire the attention they get from doing it. I don’t think all women/teenagers who identify as bisexual are complete liars, but I think the fact that they get attention leads them down the road to experimentation and, you know, if they do ultimately find that they like it and identify with that then that’s cool. If the only thing they ever get out of it is attention from males then I think they should probably reconsider as ultimately they won’t find that kind of male attention that fulfulling.

As a bi male, you’re much more prone to negative comment/attention from both sexes, but even that’s changing too. I’ve always had a very feminine appearance and that’s always gotten me a lot of negative comment, but the upside is you know who your friends are and you know who is a waste of space quite quickly. A certain cross section of women like their men manly too and I suppose I can’t fault them their preference … a certain cross section of women seem to think long hair on guys and slightly feminine appearance is quite cool… hence the popularity of this in anime, I guess!

So yeah, I think the world is changing and the more people get used to bisexuality and homosexuality the more attitudes towards it relax and the more people want to experiment with it. Often it’s just that, experimentation and I suspect a lot of people identifying as bi at a young age end up leading pretty straight lifestyle. But that’s the point of being bisexual… you have options, you’re not tied down to choosing a lifestyle that you’re ultimately not going to be comfortable with.

i guess it could be a fad yeah for teens but that doesn't mean all of them are just trying to get attention. It just annoys me that ppl classify all teenagers together. i mean if you go to school you'll see everykind of personality in the teenage world, even the ones that act like they are 50 yrs old. and you can see some of the same igorance and rebellion a teenager should have in the ppl who actually are 50. sometimes its more than just a stage and it really sucks when ppl think thats all it is.

Another actually bi person here. Yeah, there are people who only say they are to get attention, but you can spot them from a mile away (two girls making out in front of a bunch of guys = probably not bi).

There really is some hostility against us in the LGBT community. Some people think we can pass for straight people without a hitch and don't have to deal with discrimination and/or we are wishy-washy nymphomaniacs. Not like the second part isn't assumed by straight people, though.

Also bi dudes do exist and aren't a myth, it's just that a lot of them are worried they'll be seen as gay if they so much as admit to any attraction to the same sex. Even on this page we have someone who assumes as much.

What I find to be fascinating is the fact that while sexual orientation is but an individual preference, there's an unwarranted fear and hostility coming from a certain group of individuals; those who overreacted due to lack of information or had been misinformed. In other words, without them carefully validated the nature and reality of sexual orientation for themselves in the first place, they instead reacted to their uncertainty with fear and hostility.

As for those who pretend to be bisexual for attention and acceptance, I think there are those who'll do anything just to prove a point these days.

While I'm a heterosexual through and through, I honesty think that overreactions of fear and hostility caused by uncertainty is more of a threat to our society overall. As opposed to who can get what to be horny, when nature had been running its course without most of us ever question its preference for the longest time.

I've never been active in the LGBT community, but I posted online in a "gay" thread for a very short period once, I dunno, just to be social I suppose, and the second I said that I was bi about 5 gay people descended upon me and told me that bi people were basically unreliable people, couldn't make up their mind what they wanted in life, had committment issues and were overly sexually obsessed.

As someone who has always stood up for the rights of homesexuals I found it sad that there are gay people out there who are actively discriminating against bisexuals. Really sad. Not that I'm trying to suggest that all or the majority of homosexuals are this ignorant... because I'm pretty sure that they're not.

Bisexuals is common in the animal Kingdom, being that we to are animals and came to exist in the same manner all animals do.. It is only logical to deduce that humans will also show signs of both bisexuality, and Homosexuality like all other animals.
'This is just a natural fact, and is normal for teens to explore their sexuality where ever that may lead them.
So I do not think one can call that a fad, more just fallowing their baser instincts.

On another note. Fads go in and out of style... wile in this case bisexuality has been around long before the planet of the apes, way before the Homo first made fire.

Bisexuals, also synonymous to FAGtards. You will often see them trying to use the excuse that they are "confused".

In fact, there are no such thing as Bis, I believe in the existence of Lesbos and FatFags though.

I was in deep thought [seriously, I was], and I actually came up with an irrefutable conclusion. – They are in dire need of serious attention.

You will see them hanging out with multi-colored lollipop, attention-seeking, camwhoring, adhd infected emo goth scene whatevah ninja bffs.

They were maltreated all their childhood lives that's why they decided that they are desperate enough to try both gendies.





I am bi and nothing of what you just said can be attributed to me in any way, I'm not confused, I'm certainly not looking for any attention, I've never eaten a multi-colored lollipop (though it sounds good) and I was never mis-treated in any way growing up, I simply like girls and guys. Sounds to me like you are just trying to hate on someone, although I will agree I think some "bi" people are just trying to get in on the fad (and I dislike those ppl greatly) most bi ppl are actually bi we just like both genders, deal with it!

I don't think over-all it is a fad. However I think there are some people that try to convince themselves that they are something they are not because they want to be part of a "fad" and those people need to stop trying to be what they are not. I'm bi so I don't like to see people acting like it is some sort of fad.

Your extreme ignorance knows no bounds it would seem. So why can girls be bi, why are they not just lesbians that "haven't fully come out of the closet yet?" Not only is that unbelievably ignorant but it is a reverse form of sexism and also you hating on bi males. I am bi, I like guys but I like girls even more, I enjoy being with girls, I enjoy kissing girls, and I enjoy having sex with girls....hmm is that the definition of a "fag" as you would say?

My viewpoint stems from a more prevalent uprising of bisexuality among the youth today. This humorous attempt people make to seem more interesting only works for a short period of time. As youths, we do quite a bit of exploration. We get to know ourselves most importantly so we can better get to know others. Or you could be a person that hasn't connected on an intimate level with anything, let alone sexuality. Such a thing leads to a poorly developed psychology... Ha! Read my words while I am wearing this ghastly paint on my face.

I'm now more fascinated by these multicoloured lollipops than I am by either boys or girls. Where can I find some please?

What does this make me and is it just a fad?

I definitely think it's a fad.

1) Teens like to feel different. White kids especially want to experience what it feels like to be a "persecuted minority". I think calling yourself bi is a way of accomplishing that.

2) Teens like imitating the media. Most shows nowadays have token bi or gay characters, then there are the swaths of celebs who also make the claim (the legitimacy is up to you to decide).

3) Teens want to be attractive. Especially in anime, being an effeminate boy is a PLUS for the ladies. And for the guys, girl on girl action is a total draw. In the end, it can come right back to being more appealing in a hetero way.

4) Teens like attention. Attention through controversy is a even better.

Bisexuality is not a fad, it is a sexual orientation and not a matter of choice. The question is poorly worded.
