Basically fakers. They pretend to be something they are not, to appear more attractive. Something along those lines ?


Don't know. The hypothesis put forward in the link is some are using it as a hedge instead of coming out as gay and some are using it to appear more sexually open. That doesn't negate the people who actually are bi, however. It just means bi is a smaller segment of the population.


Has anybody done a survey on how many people are Bisexual ?

I think the CDC has. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhsr/nhsr077.pdf

The chart you will want is on page 7. Take with a grain of salt, that we don't have a study on how people identify on dating sites might line up with a CDC questionnaire. But it states .4% of men and .9% of women with younger people being the most likely.

Ah sorry,sorry..i just know what i have read somewhere.Besides,not being one myself how could i possibly know how asexual person feels about such things?Being your average straight guy that is.


I was't yelling a you or anything like that. I was just trying to say that being asexual does't mean you don't have a strong sexual desire. Is more a long the lines that certain things make you have boners while others don't. Also sexual things are not your primary interest in people you like. And you are less likely to feel a strong sexual desire.

I like girls and I will tell you who I think is hot but if you ask me if I want to have sex with her. I will tell you I speaking objectively. Has a sexsual man. The girl or guy personality is what make me want to. Otherwise is meh.

Also being asexual mean that you can go years without having sex and be fine, while a normal sexual person will be frustrated.

Honestly, I don't trust most surveys/questionnaires and statistics.
Every sexuality besides hetero are hated so much. People who aren't straight constantly feel threatened/scared to express themselves & come out.
Plus practically everyone was never educated & told about the many sexualities people can be.
There are people out there who are confused who they're attracted to & can't seem to find the right sexual orientation they can identify with.
I mean, I met a 84 year old who didn't even know bisexual was a thing.
(I'm not saying its terribly inaccurate though.)

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to see how you see things,it's always nice to get out of my box since people tend to get stuck in there for far too long whiles.^^

The whole "putting a label on people" in the first place is completely stupid. I highly doubt that who you find yourself attracted to is something that could be simplified as to them just being male, female, or whatever. People just should be with who they want to without thinking about it too much, and stop trying to make themselves seem special by pretending to identify with a certain group.

Being bi is aggravating. You have people on one side saying, "Why don't you just admit to being gay?" And then you have people on the other side saying, "You're straight, so quit trying to play the field!" *shakes head* There are reasons why many of us keep quiet about being the B in LGBTQ*.

Just my 25cents worth... Hey, inflation..

Does it really matter? Let's put aside religious views and the "holy unholy" aspect of it for a minute.

Is she preventing you from having a relationship with the person you want ? Are you having intelligent conversations with her where you don't get into a round of bashing each other? Insulting each other?

Is she beating you over the head with (insert religious text here) to convince you you're on the path straight to hell?

Is she kicking you out of the house because your experimenting or CHOOSING a life that she doesn't understand or completely comprehend/believe in?

If not.. Then you have it better off then probably half the population at least.

She has a right to think of that lifestyle as "confused". To be honest, I'm more towards that thinking myself. However never would I brow beat them, torment them, or bully them into my way of thinking.

As long as she/they allow you your constitutional rights and a life in peace, then I don't see the issue. (Assuming USA, but Canada etc have comparable to some extent, bill of rights etc.)

Lol I'm bisexual. Its not experimenting (some people experiment and that's normal, but its not bisexuality). I have been with both men and women and enjoy them both. I tend to lean more towards women so I'm about 65% interested in women; but thats only physically. I tend to be more emotionally attracted to more feminine men for some reason; However my tastes having been changing and I have been finding myself less attracted to women so that may change.

I dont think there are really any "fake" Sexualities so much as there are "fake people" pretending to be something they are not.

Sexuality is a personal thing and is different for everyone, and some people don't fit into the mold correctly.

Every angsty teen these days seem to be bisexual or identify with something, when really they're just looking for attention. Asexuality on the other hand only affects 1% of the population so I also find it amusing when you hear quite a few people claim they're one. I'm sure there are a lot more other 'terms' but I don't go on tumblr.
