This Youtube video briefly but brilliantly says what bisexuality is and what it is not. It is simply being attracted to both men and women. It is not anything more than that. That’s it.
When someone who identifies as bisexual ends up in a relationship with a man or a woman, she or he is not selling out or giving up or picking men over women or vice versa; they simply happened to choose to love that individual. It’s that simple.
Let’s give all forms of sexual orientation the respect they deserve by not questioning their choices or resorting to stereotypes about how they must be confused or misguided.
