Yep, everyone has has a factor of bisexuality in them. I agree about "bisexual" tendencies in people, since there is a tendency in where people would like people of the same gender. And that tendency enables friendships and non-sexual relations to exist between the same gender. I don't want to sound weird here but let us not put too much malice either.

Anyways back to the topic, I was referring about the trend about the practices or the norm the teens nowadays are doing. I was not referring to themselves of being genetically bisexual of any sorts. It was like the same as the 70s disco fever or some sorts, the trend may fade away. But that does not mean the people themselves may not have the tendencies in becoming bisexual or some sorts.

one of the above passages back and forth made me flash on one of my favourite sci fi series of novels.

At an extravgant ball where former ship captain from an egaltarian and very sexually open minded planet is enjoying taking notes on her new husband's much more patriarchal culture.

the villain of this novel, approaches the woman and tries to break up her marriage by revealing that her husband is bisexual.

Unaware of his motives, she casually responds. "Was Bisexual, Now he's monagamous"

It's only later, after thinking about the culture she's now immersed in that she realizes "This man tried to blow up my Marriage... What else has he tried to blow up?"

anyhow. mostly spurious but in answer to those who as about bisexuality and settling down... I think you have your answer.

I've been bisexual way before this whole "being a bi girl is cool". I genuinely like women as much as I like men. Right now I'm engaged to a man, but if things won't work and a good girl crosses my path, I'd keep her.

I personaly do think it's a fad and is going on a lot in teens now and for that reason I do NOT date bisexauls I will stick with the lesbains and the ones I'm pretty sure are REAL lesbains.
Even in the LGBT community some lesbains and gays (notice I said "SOME" NOT ALL lesbains and gays) don't like bisexuals and would never date one and this is one of the reasons why they don't, you can't tell who is REAL and who is FAKE. Just sad when you fall for the "bi" girls who is straight and you get your heart crushed (never happened to me but I know some who it has happened to).

Anyways...

I do think some people don't really know what bisexuality really is and think; I kissed a girl or I thought this one girl was cute so I'm bisexaul. No, maybe bi-CERICOUS unless they would really actually have SEX, be in a RELATIONSHIP, and could really LOVE that person then maybe they can say they are Bisexual.

I however do believe that bisexuality is real and its sad the REAL ones have to suffer because of the FAKE ones.

Bisexuality is a sexual orientation - not a fad. SAYING you are bisexual when you are not may be a fad.

I think that people need to learn the difference between being b-curious, liking to kiss the same gender and actually being bisexual. I think people are wayyy to quick to label themselves as bi, and it happens a lot with girls because a lot of straight guys think its hot to see two girls together. I strongly believe there are people who are legitemetly bisexual and i feel really bad for them because its become so much of a fad or an attention label that people give them crap for liking borh genders, telling them they are lying and just doing it for attention. I think another big reason people will say it is because they are gay or lesbian and they figure if they say they are bi instead, people will accept them better. Im very sick of the whole "oh ive kissed the same gender so i must be bi" no.... no your not, i have kissed girls before and i know i wouldnt be in a serious relationship with a girl. People need to think before they label themselves, because it makes it hard for the ones who are actually bi and cant be taken seriously because of the ones who just say they are for the attention or because they are dumb/ignorant to what being bi really is.

Sexuality is a sliding scale, so it's been argued that everyone is at least slightly Bi....unless they are asexual, and I do happen to know an asexual.

But, that's neither here nor there.

Firstly, Chaosangel23 does have a point. I know a few gay guys and lesbians who went with "Bi" in school, even though they were not in order to avoid persecution. I personally believe that many teen girls call themselves "Bi" for lack of proper information. They seem to think that because they hang out excessively with girls, and have played around kissing and petting, they're Bi. Exploration is completely natural at that age, and does not make you Bi. Just because you're a girl and you can see that another girl is physically attractive, you're not Bi, either.....

Actually, I'm seeing more "Bi" guys as well. There needs to be more open communication about sexual awareness and orientations with this age group.

So, Yes, Bisexuality exists, some people are more Bi-sexual then others (Attracted to both genders, but would prefer one over the other), but I am of the opinion that with the teens, this claim has become a bit too vogue.

Something you said bedlamwolf makes an excellent point, people arent educated enough, this is why i strongly believe they should teach about sexual orientation in schools. I feel like so many people now adays are so hateful or uneducated because were not allowed to teach it in schools. People dont give kids enough credit, i have a friend who was just telling me yesterday that she met this person with a 5 year old kid and the kid was talking about someone they know saying "yea, shes a lesbian, she likes girls, but thats ok, thats just how she is" Kids are smarter than we think and things would just be so much better if people were more educated.

I'd lean on fad. It's popular and 'cool'. But whatever, to those types of people.

I believe that some bisexuals mislabel themselves.
For example I've spoken to many girls and boys who claim
they don't care for the gender of who they date, or they don't
want to ever marry someone of the same sex. Yet these people call
themselves bisexual. I'm sure that some bisexuals are actually
pansexuals and some are 'bi-curious'. Also, I've seen many girls
go from straight to bisexual to straight again.they label themselves
to quickly... I just dislike labels altogether, but in society we 'need'
them. I believe some people should research a word before they use
it to label themselves. I'm pansexual and I can truthfully say I'm not
attracted to anyone for what is in their pants.

Anyway, to some people it's 'cool' depending on where you live and
the friends you have.

sexuality is a spectrum, so bisexual is a valid sexual orientation. there are just two kinds of people who fuck it up for everyone; those who think that bisexuality is trendy and cool and ~different, and those who are confused about what it actually is. on one hand, you have the worst demographic on the planet that will do literally anything to seperate themselves from the norm, and they blindly drag the good name of bisexuality through their shit by slapping the label on themselves, even if they're completely heterosexual. on the other hand, there are boys and girls who have kissed or touched people of the same sex in an experimental way and think that somehow changes their actual orientation. it's normal to play around, and you can actually even find yourself attracted to gay/lesbian pornography without having it have an impact on your preference. but there are people who are equally attracted to both sides, absolutely. some of it is tender, young confusion, though.

Agreed. If my husband and I ever split up, I'd start looking for a girlfriend instead.

While I believe that bisexuality is a valid and existing sexual orientation, I have witnessed (unfortunately) a large amount of teens, mostly young girls, label themselves as such. Which I would have absolutely no problem with if most of their profiles didn't read as follows: "AmiKawaiixxChanSu.14.Justin Bieber suxxxxxx add if you think so too! I'm bi but I don't kiss girls eww."

I find it rather unfortunate that a group like that has erased as validity of a true bisexual identifying themselves as such because of young teens wanting to label themselves as something "edgy" to be a special snowflake.
