This is a debate that I've had with my friends on countless occasions. The term Bisexuality is coined to be an attraction of both genders, male or female. However, it seems a majority of my friends believe the old classic belief that "bisexuality does not exist, and you're just a gay in denial," or the other, bisexual people are just greedy and therefore do not exist wholly.
I've wondered for years why some people feel like this, and how serious bisexuality is taken as sexuality goes. I've never really had a problem expressing my own sexuality, showing attraction to both females, transgender men, and women, and rarely, men, and never really had to deal with the turbulent wondering of whether or not my sexuality meant I liked one gender, or another. I just sort always felt an attraction to people, regardless of gender. I know I'm leaning more towards pansexual here, and I digress.
I've always been curious as to why people don't seem to take bisexuality serious, or assume that it is just an excuse for gay people to give their family and friends hope that they one day will make the right choice. Whenever I have sat down and the discussion of this has come up, it always seems I find people who really do believe that we are limited to, biologically, to a single gender, and that is the be-all-and-end-all.
What do you guys think? Is bisexuality just a fallacy for people who need to suit up and pick a side, or is it possible?
