Of course bisexuality exists. What will they have to "prove" next? That water's wet?

Sexual preference is more complex than simply "gay or straight".

Who'da thunk it.
 
2014-03-21 12:59:00 PM  
Bisexuals are just greedy. pick a side!
 
2014-03-21 12:59:46 PM  
Are there really people that don't believe that bisexuality exists? I mean, there are people who like having sex with both men and women, so that kind of proves it all by itself, right?

As Carlin said, you may as well walk around with a phone book under your arm "Imagine wanting to fark every one you meet!"

"And they're doing it with science"

...and who else?

I heard being bi automatically doubles your chances of getting lucky

I bet some people believe that bisexuals aren't really into one of the sexes and is just gay for pay or straight for pay or whatever.

Everybody's everything.. Yup... even you.. in fact, especially you.

Of course it exists - what a silly thing to try to prove. Hell, just find a bisexual dude and two people of opposite sexes. If the flag flies for each then you can conclude the study as proven.

If you can find both sexes sexually attractive, it doubles your chances of getting laid.
 
2014-03-21 01:09:35 PM  
If you can prove bisexuality exists, than think how cruel it would be to deny such a person two spouses. Youre forcing them to make a Sophie's Choice with their very nature.

Yawn

I'd much rather see someone set out to prove hot lesbians actually exist.

I used to have regular sexual interfaces with a chick who liked chicks, so yeah, science, biatches.

I'm a lesbian who is trapped in a mans body who can't stop thinking about tits, ass and pussy.

Finally, I can stop worrying about being gay while having sex with men. Thanks, science!

Or any random sampling of female college students.

No, you're a gender normal, heterosexual male with an overactive sex drive. And you'd probably be able to address it if you took the fedora off and put some acne medication on, kid.

Some people are trisexual.

/they'll try sex with anything

Sexuality has nothing to do with opinions on monogamy.

A conservative friend acquaintance once explained to me that only women can be bisexual, because that's totally hot. Guys, however, are either straight or gay. Enjoying the cock just once, he insisted, makes you gay. "It's like how you've got sewage and wine," he said. "Now if you add a teaspoon of wine to a glass of sewage, it's still sewage. And if you add a teaspoon of sewage to a glass of wine, it's now sewage. Or it's like how on demographics forms you have 'white' and 'non-white.' As a dude you're either straight or not straight, and not straight = gay."

But those people are idiots and probably believe being gay is a choice, and won't listen to this study anyway.
 
2014-03-21 01:23:35 PM  
I disagree. I refuse the accept that bisexuals have a defined mass, volume, and spacial position.
 
2014-03-21 01:23:49 PM  
Sexuality is more like a scatter plot.
 
2014-03-21 01:27:26 PM  
They were claiming that homosexuality exists in nature but any homo critter they found would also Fark the opposite sex so you'd have to say that's more evidence of bi than homo.

So you're a trans denier?

Um... If the official purpose of your scientific efforts is to prove X, then you are doing it wrong.

I haven't read tfa yet, but activist and science don't really work well together, unless the science comes first.
 
2014-03-21 01:38:44 PM  
I recall reading that in fMRI studies studying involuntary sexual reflexes, heteros get turned on by hetero erotica, gay by gay & with bisexuals, it was either one or the other, not both.
 
2014-03-21 01:39:06 PM  
Trying to prove the feelings of an individual? Good luck with that.

Technically, neutrality in this instance would be asexuality. Bisexuality would be the arms dealer who is selling both sides guns.

Based on a sample size of 1 in a study I've done, that can't be right.

I know for a fact that is demonstrably false. You don't even have to think about it very hard to know it is bullshiat.

A lesbian trapped in a man's body is also known as a man.

Your friend acquaintance sounds like he takes it up the pooper.

Before I go out tonight, let me make sure I have this straight. Science says it's okay for me to suck dick. Right? Good to know.

I used to identify as bixsexual, but honestly I don't find the majority of either sex attractive, and sod me if I can figure out what the people I find attractive have in common. Nonetheless I've had sex with both (and a few in-between) and fallen in love with members of both sexes. I think the problem with bisexuality is that it oversells the notion. I think it's moreso that the plumbing isn't a deal-breaker.

An increasingly common idea heard around the internet. I'm pretty convinced that there's a healthy population that would connect with any sentient thing of appropriate depth and character, regardless of gender or possibly even form.

XMark: Are there really people that don't believe that bisexuality exists? I mean, there are people who like having sex with both men and women, so that kind of proves it all by itself, right?


Those people are just slutty.

From what I've read, "bisexual" men tend to be physically turned on by men, and have sex with women mainly for the social advantages (the classic closeted guy with a trophy wife and family, and boyfriends on the side). Bisexual women tend to be turned on by both sexes. As do "straight" women.

The argument seems to be not whether people exhibit bisexuality, but whether bisexuality is a hardwired orientation. There seems to be a big difference on how this manifests in men compared to women.

This is kind of interesting from an academic standpoint, but as society quits worrying so much about whether gay sex is preeversion, it's not an IMPORTANT question. You shouldn't be defined as being "a bisexual," just because you've had sex with both men and women. It's totally acceptable in my circle of acquaintances for "straight" women to declare their lust for female celebrities, without that putting them into some separate orientation category. Same thing should go for men.

I recall that never happening.

This just in: Humans are able to separate and distinguish  love, physical pleasure, mental stimulation, emotional reward, loyalty, and survival from procreation and gender.

/The challenge I would pose to the LBGT crowd is to broaden their own views as well.  When you define yourself as your sexuality, you limit who you are.

slayer199: If you can find both sexes sexually attractive, it doubles your chances of getting laid.


Which, for farkers is, lemme do the math. Zero times zero. Carry the zero. Subtract another zero, and multiply by pi.
