That's kind of what I was wondering. It's sort of like telling people you are religious or an Atheist...it's really none of their business and normally doesn't come up in general conversation.

Is this what is known as speeding dating?

Logic dictates that if she wants her own kid she needs a man, artificial insemination or a willing participent. Dont you want your own kid as in own flesh and blood?

There seems a misunderstanding...
Do you know the difference between HETEROSEXUAL, HOMOSEXUAL and BISEXUAL ?

Dont you want children etc?

Never mind, Mr Right Wing, whatever hurt you are feeling inside we all empathise and understand that is what makes you act badly towards others. How about a big, manly, hug and you can open up and cry...you'll feel better! :yes:

Logic and love don't mix. Everybody knows that :)

I don't flat out just tell people I'm bisexual, I'll talk about past girlfriends and pretty girls like it's normal in conversation, cause to me it is normal, it's hard to think of it as abnormal so I don't really know what not to say. My dad always accepted me for who I was, so I don't have a bad parental reaction to 'guide' me on societies opinion on my sexuality :)

The internet is a series of tubes, and those tubes are full of cats.

To clear up a few things, I openly tell people I'm bisexual because I don't feel the need to be ashamed of it, I doesn't come up as "Hey, I'm Zara! i'm a C cup, I love leather and I like titties and peenus!" It's more like "Oh gosh, look at her. Dem legs >.>" I am a bit of a perve, and I'm paraphrasing to get my point across, I don't introduce myself as bisexual, as a 19 year old it sort of just comes up, past loves, past failures, who was there to catch me when I fell. Since I don't mind when somebody is gay or straight I don't understand it to be a problem.


Yes, it doubles my chances. Oh how they double. So much win.

i think lots of straight people imagine homosexuality/bisexuality as just sex, maybe they don't understand that gays and bisexuals can feel amazing love towards someone of the same sex, like how they can love someone the different sex. im not sure if what i just said made any sense at all, but i tried to explain it the best i could. also, i think some heterosexuals (not all) think bisexual means your incapable of being monogamous.

PS - This is a genuine question - not a homophobic one.

It's a reasonable question and the answer may have something to do with how different generations view 'privacy', but have you never had a discussion with people regarding sexuality and used your own sexuality to qualify a point you are making?

That is what Zarakitty did in her OP, and people who have responded in this thread with a "ZOMG, why tell people your bisexual?!?!" either didn't read the OP or didn't understand it. If I was to state in a conversation about prejudice "Well, when I tell people I'm agnostic some make a point of berating me for 'sitting on the fence'.", I am using my belief to emphasise a point, just as the OP did.

It is not the same as saying "Hey, look at me everybody I'm AGNOSTIC!!!!"

I just wanted to mention that I don't understand where this thought that those who hold a belief in God feel those who don't equal "baby killers" or even bad people for that matter.

I have a strong belief in God, and I'm openminded about peoples sexual preferences and identification issues as well.

I don't care about someone's sexuality, or whether or not they have religious beliefs. No skin off my nose.
