I can't find a guy, so perhaps I should just settle for a lady. We're the altruistic sex right? Some kindly woman should embrace me against her friendly bosom. Until I meet Mr Right. Yeah you know how it is lady. See ya.
I know plenty of people who skip from relationship to relationship. I don't doubt their sincerity with each relationship (which is not to say I give them my blessing. Not that my blessing is much sought after). I know lots of people who are promiscuous. Some are straight, some are gay, some are bisexual. They all get equally lucky. And I think they are all greedy.
The 2012 the first Bisexuality report was put together in the UK. Meg Barker who ran the research commented: "Government policy and equalities agendas generally consider lesbian, gay and bisexual issues together.
This is not some little Pride left over day. This is a day to highlight the biphobia out there and the acute dangers of it.
"Government and communities need to single out bisexual people as a separate group in order to address this equality gap."
I can think of only one openly bisexual politician in the UK, Simon Hughes deputy leader of the Lib Dems, who after repeated questions over his sexuality came out after The Sun newspaper said they had proof he had used the gay chat room Man Talk (which sounds like a slightly ill-conceived girls board game, consisting of some profile cards and a chunky pink phone)
I know of some celebrities who identify as bisexual. Though on occasion I cannot help but suspect it is for titillation. Which fuels the casual biphobia we see and hear every day. Or am I being biphobic doubting their sincerity? I am after all dismissing certain celebrity sexuality as 'just a phase'. And how frustrating must that be?
Let's look at the research again: "A report on mental health issues in the Brighton and Hove area of the UK confirmed that those who identified as bisexual, queer or âotherâ in terms of sexualities were more likely than lesbian and gay identified people to have mental health difficulties and were more likely to have attempted suicide." The study found that this meant they were more likely to experience homelessness, abuse and violence.
This is not some little Pride left over day. This is a day to highlight the biphobia out there and the acute dangers of it. Because for some people who are bisexual out there, it's not Girls or Boys, it's life or death.
