I know I'll get a lot of hate because I'm simple minded, but I only think there are 3 sexualities; Homosexual, Heterosexual, Bisexual.

I'm always surprised how many new sexuality pops up each year. My theory is that people take the main and twist/add.subtract to make their own sexualtiy that they feel fits them to either "fit in" or "stand out" For example, I've heard so many people claim Demisexual, and I had no idea what it meant, but reading what was posted at the beginning it sounds more like a loophole a lawyer would put into a business contract. I'm not sure, but I feel like a lot of people don't like to be labeled with the three "basics" and therefor find their own meaning, but then I'd have to ask why is it bad that you fit into one of the 3?

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.)

My mother isn't actually really religious. However the rest of my family is. We do have productive conversations with each other. This is just something we don't both agree on.
Some of us who end up in a relationship with the same sex get basically the same amount of shit homosexuals do. Except people seem to think we're just confused or trying to get attention or w/e.
People are like "So you're gay then?". With the opposite sex, its like "So you are straight!" like...no. I'm still attracted to both men & women. Just because I'm currently with a man/woman doesn't mean I decided that I was actually straight/gay.
I'm not trying to say we have it worse, more like, its just hard to be accepted among anyone who isn't bisexual themselves. People just can't seem to accept there are people who find both the opposite & same sex attractive.
It makes sense that you'd think we have it better, but we honestly don't.
Homophobes don't make us an exception.
Both straight & gay people are cautious of us and just have decided we are all cheaters.
We're not even accepted in our own community/space to the point that we might as well just make it LGTA.
It's just so frustrating. Biphobia is so much more common than you'd actually think it is.
So yes, it does really matter.

I just think its a better way for people to easily describe/indentify themselves.
Everyone is different, so I found it hard to believe that all the 7 billion humans on this planet could only be & perfectly indentify as either those 3 sexualities.

I'm with your mom on this one, easily impressionable people tend to identify with anything that's not just hetero or homo

I just think those people are trying to "discover" themselves. Like mostly kids/teenagers. Thats probably the best time for us to experiment and try to learn about ourselves. But I won't deny there are people who identify as something noncommon for attention and to seem special/unique. I honestly don't completely understand all these genders I hear about. But if that's what they feel like they might be then w/e.
Although this "transracial" stuff I've been hearing about lately is some serious horse shit tbh.

I think bisexual people aren't fake because, well it's a matter of sexual attraction. They may have a preference to like a gender a bit more than the other but that's how they are. You should judge them by character not by what they want to fuck lol. If this person is known to be a cheater then they are a cheater. It's kind of like racism to judge someone by their sexuality. I also think it's possible to have a romantic relationship without being sexual, because you are excluding the sexualness of a relationship. Like you can date someone, but you don't have to do sexual activities with them. If you don't think it's possible then you're a person that clearly likes the sexual part of a romantic relationship and cannot have that kind of romantic relationship without the sexual part.

I agree with jordancharacter on the labeling of people. I do not see the point of labeling people at all. All it does is create social divide. A lot of people also do it to seem "hip." Such as people saying they have ADHD, ADD or OCD. Those people just kill me inside. Things like that are no thing to say as it is an insult to people who really have it.

I do believe Bisexual exists, I have had good friends who pretty much could prove it to me. Some of the other ones though, I tend to doubt. I look at all the definitions provided and I could fit into pretty much all of them... and none of them at the same time. They are far too broad and do not truly classify anyone in any sense.

I could be an Asexual aromantic homosapien. I could also be a demisexual heterosexual Europhile gerontophilia gynotikolobomassophile et.al.

The point here is.. when does the labeling stop and when can someone just be who they want to without having to label themselves?

P.S. I am none of the mentioned above. I just figured it would be a good example of how pointless labeling can be. You are who you are. Period.

I must agree with this although I also believe it is possible to be asexual. Okay, you are attracted to one or the other, both, or none at all. But, yeah, it bothers me slightly when people conjure up new stuff when there's already an existing category that, for all intents and purposes, perfectly describes them already. Sort of like blood type. There are billions of humans but the vast majority comfortably fit into one of those categories.

It really depends on the person is what you're saying.
At the back of your mind:


Some people as they grow older find people less and less sexually attractive or just not attractive. So hey, more power to you if you're finding people sexually attractive left and right. I know that only one sex makes me feel uncomfortable and I was already 17 by the time i became genuinely interested in live people. Before that, i was pretty much only interested in dead stuff, i'm sure it's not sexual and a lot of death in my immediate family had something to do with it.

I had a conversation with my mom the other day about the LGBT community.
She said at one point though that she thinks Bisexual & Pansexual people are just being experimental. She thinks people can be either homosexual or heterosexual.


I remember the old joke of "He's Trisexual--He'll try anything. ", but now that the official term appears to be Pansexual (which is apparently different from Bi in that it can include horses), I'm picturing someone attracted to 10-yo. boys who can fly.
(Or at least what Michael Jackson was doing in Neverland.)


EDIT :
I wanted to include a bigger list a small description for some uncommon ones that I already know. I thought it might help.
Asexual 'Ace' - Not attracted to anyone sexually.
Aromantic 'Aro' - not attracted to anyone romantically.
Demisexual 'Demi' - Only feels sexual attraction to someone once they're emotionally attracted to then first.
Biromantic - Romantically attracted to one or both genders.
Heteroromantic - Romantically attracted to the opposite gender.
Homoromantic - Romantically attracted to the same gender.


Which brings up the question of Is Romance Sex? Discuss, and drift thread for the better.

Who cares what somebody thinks about your sexuality.If they're not trying to discriminate against you or force theirs upon you, what does it matter?

Not offence to your mom or those people but they can go and fuck them self.

Last time I check, I have a boner for guys and girls.

I am sorry but I like variety. Anybody who think I have to pick one flavor is a condescending asshole.



When one examines your affinity for at least two sexes then a condescending asshole should be right up your alley.Enjoy!
