If they feel gay, then they are… there are many bi’s who are attracted to another person socially, sexually or spiritually, but like one gender, or sex more than another… It’s all good. Do what feels right for you. I’ve stated this before, it’s not what they are attracted to regarding their body, it’s the persons mind, and essences, that I’m attracted too. There have been many grey areas in my life that are not so black and white. At the moment I’m dating a lovely sweet straight guy, who happens to have more feminine qualities than the average straight guy on some things and very manly as definitions go on the other…. who’s to say what should be? It’s the person after all that bi’s are attracts too. Cheers,
Everyone should always have the right to identify as they see themselves. Now, if someone is hiding, in the closet, or went back into the closet because of bias, phobia, etc., they are doing themselves a disservice on being their true selves. It’s never good for your well-being—hiding who you really are…. but yes, I think we all have a right to identify as we see ourselves and no one should question our identification.
Not sure about “these women” I don’t know them. All I know is what many other bisexuals, state, or how I feel about my bisexuality. It’s like saying all black, Jewish, white, women, think and act a certain way? You can’t use “all” in any reference, some do, some don’t, some label, some won’t. It’s up to that person to self-identify. If a person you like, isn’t the right mix for you, find someone who is, we can’t change every person’s sexuality into something we want them to be. If some people like to drink and be a little bit bolder on what they will say and do, how can we stop that? Some folks are shy, some not, it depends on the person I say. Interact with people you can identify with.. Good luck.
There are a lot of bisexuals on facebook and twitter for internet peer support. got to facebook.com/bisocialnetwork or fb.com/iamvisible for more bi people to talk too. If you need real mental health support, google in your area, but you can start by going to http://www.binetusa.org/ they have a lot of links regarding resources. Also a really good mental health support is Trevor project http://www.thetrevorproject.org/ if you don’t have a local LGBT support group in your area. Let me know your age range, location and issue of support, then I can find more services you might look into. Also, if you are thinking about suicide, please call 911, or talk to someone you trust. My other site is deliriumtoday.org which will be about real mental health education discussions. It’s general, but we will meet every group’s needs. Please keep in touch! I’m here to help if I can, I am a mental health aider, so if you need a listening ear you can reach out to me.
Thanks for the love….we had to take a break due to low donations, coming in, to continue. The site was very big with over 500 articles and bloggers giving out the bi love. Because we were at a very high end WordPress, I wanted to keep the domain alive and from time to time write about bi stories, expressions, etc. So I added the domain under Tumblr in the meantime. Who’s to say what will happen, at this point we are getting many emailings just to give out love, to voice their opinion or to talk about their sexuality. It’s all good! :-) Keep reading and when we are ready to come back, we will!! Adrienne,
Sadly, BSN isn’t a dating site…. but there are many groups online that cater to bi dating, etc.. Good luck.
It’s a good idea! The only thing I would say is, there must be some typle of PSA campaign so everyone would know it’ stands for being bi, not a funeral or a gradution of some sort.
Everyone has this journey, “how to tell someone;” but most likely they might already know. My experience, is to just tell them… “I’m bi,” “either love me as I am, or don’t but I want you in my life and I hope you want to be in my life.” Though, always make sure it’s a safe place to come out. Most people that do come out find themselves happier in the long run. Good luck!
