What is your opinion on bisexuality?

My personal opinion is that people who claim to be bisexual may not be ready to make the final "leap" of being gay, or they have an open-ended sexuality. But no matter what I think, I still say you've only got one life to live, and live how you want to live.

Well this is a subject with quite a few possible tangents (e.g.: if homosexuality is a choice as many religions claim wouldn't that mean that everyone is bi? At what point does desire for a specific gender or fetish create a sexual identity?). Anyway I've got a girlfriend and I'm sticking with her. Whatever you're into is your business.

Hmm... first and foremost, I should say that we are not in any position to judge. Racism and hatred towards people of other sexual preferences is just wrong and cruel. I mean, no one makes fun of anyone else because they're straight... so why do we do it to people who aren't? Second, people do not choose their sexuality. It's not like someone wakes up one day and says "I want to be gay," or straight or bisexual for that matter. We're all in this together so let's make it worth while.

People are curious creatures.

I think it's kinda cool that someone is open to things...I've considered it. I can see why people would become lesbians. I'm not sure about why guys become homosexual though. But anyway, I think it's up to that person. To  each his own, right?

I have no problem with any relationship between consenting adults.

How can you have an opinion on it? It is something that exists. Sexual  orientation has very little to do with a person's ability to be loving and caring.

I think its a right anyone has to express love. There should be no specifics on what it's called. Love is Love no matter who they express it with- male or female or both.

Stephanie, 25

You don't choose who you are attracted to. You love people for all sorts of reasons. This is true whether your bisexual, homosexual, or heterosexual. It really isn't for me to judge others.

Felicia, 35

It doesn't bother me. I know someone who's gay, and was desperate to come out because keeping such a secret was really hard on him. He was under the impression that if he said he was bisexual the impact would be smaller. But after the news spread, he still lost half his friends anyway. It's a very tragic state of affairs, and says a lot about the narrow minded, ignorant society I live in where anyone who doesn't conform to normality is quashed.

*shrug* That's kind of like asking my opinion on the changing of the seasons or the tide. They're just there, you know?

I don't care what turns people on...it's none of my business. To use my overused saying, whatever is your bag...

By all accounts I think that it has got far too trendy, fashionable, call it what you will, call them what you will I don't think that they would mind seen as they don't like being labelled just one thing.


I have the same opinion on bisexuality that I have towards homosexuality and heterosexuality: if that's what makes you happy, go for it. It should be no one's job to judge and try to "regulate" the sexuality of others. Also, this idea that bisexuals are nymphos who can't make up their mind: I don't agree with that. Personally, I come to adore with the person and then their gender, second. I am physically attracted to both genders as well but I have the same morals involving sexuality that many heterosexuals and homosexuals have.

Johanna, 18

my opinion is that trudeau had it absolutly right! (i 4get the exact words)"the canadien government dsent belong in the bedrooms of canada" and neither does anyone else, not involved.what people do is their buisness.and it also is not gross to see a gay couple kissing, no more than seein a strait couple.


The best of both worlds.

I am bisexual. I have thought many times about such a topic, and come down to many conclusions. See, i believe my desire for women comes from being abused by several men throughout my childhood and teen years. I am terrfied of men. for the past year, I have explored my sexuality, and i find myself looking more and more for women rather than men. I honestly can say i am more aroused by women, and better enjoy arousing women, than i do men. Although there are several men in my life, who i love greatly and wouldnt mind hitting the bed with, i know that if i am simply looking around, a female will get my glance first.

Adrianne, 15

Its aok with me. Its a harmless lifestyle. The attitude of some that it is morally wrong disgusts me, i cannot tolerate bigots.

Talia, 23

If I could choose my sexual orientation, I would choose to be bisexual. I would have the potential to love everyone =) I know some people think bisexuality doesn't actually exist and that bisexuals are merely too scared to come out as 100% gay. I think probably for some self-identified "bisexuals" this is true, but I also think true bisexuality exists and it should be celebrated.

Eric, 19

It is against God's law

Melodi, 19

I think young (teenagers mostly) bisexuals just haven't given themselves enough time to determine their actual sexual preference yet. As for adult bisexuals, I truly believe some of them are no more than left-over teenage bisexuals who are just so purely confused by now that they can't get it together; others seem to be people who are accustomed to having their cake and eating it too (no pun intended at all) and aren't willing to give that up. It's all too confusing to me. I have nothing at all against homosexuals...I understand and have finally grasped that genetic make-up can indeed play a role - but as for bisexuality, I just want to shrug my shoulders and say "shit or get off the pot already."

Hmm... I didn't ask this question, despite what the email said but I will answer it. I think it's a pretty natural thing, to be attracted to your own sex. Whether you act on it or not is a different thing. I know that I am bisexual, I haven't acted upon it, don't know if I ever will, but I acknowledge the fact that I am. So I guess that means that I am totally fine with it.

Maggie, 20

Got no problem with it. Got plenty of bisexual friends. Could go into it a lot further but I choose not to get personal about that. Suffice it to say that I think bisexuals have got it right: it doesn't matter what the person keeps in their pants. It's the person that matters.

etoile, 20

there is no such thing as bisexuality; those people are just greedy.

Karen2, 15

I am totally against bisexually persons. It is against God's law. People should start rading their Bible and start doing what is right and this world wound not be in the shape it is in.

My answer for this question....

I wasn't going to answer this question until I saw Karen's answer (the Karen from Marshalltown/Ames). She took the words right out of my mouth.
