/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.


As a member of the LBGT crowd I don't define myself by my sexuality. I do, however, take issue with other people defining me by my sexuality, and discriminating against me on that basis.

GRCooper: 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.


It equals something else, man. Skip to 0:36 for an explanation.

As a straight person (I am guessing), do you have sex with every person of the opposite sex? All of them?

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

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.


I'm a middle aged farker who happens to be married. Since I'm a Farker, I am exposed to T&A on Fark several times daily which makes me think about it each time someone post a T&A picture in a thread. Thinking about it doesn't mean that I have a overactive sex drive, son.

Honestly, the over-defining of sexuality and gender from (usually well-intentioned) social justice people (and their critics) online has brought me to the point of caring nothing about a person's preferences. Who cares? You like A, B, D but not C? Fine. Name that preference if you like, but in the end, it's really about the specific people you date/romance/fark, not what box you place yourself in (no pun intended). We, as a species need to stop caring so much about this (from both an inclusionary and exclusionary viewpoint).

 I'm still kind of shocked that none of the usual suspects have ever brought up the poodle bit as "proof" of the gay agenda's slippery slope.

I thought some Kensey or Kesey guy already did this with his sliding scale of fully homosexual to fully heterosexual with the varying shades of human sexuality in the middle.

WhiskeySticks: Either you blow dudes or you don't.


Not always that simple. I have OCD, and without getting into detail, body fluids (including my own) are problematic at the best of times.

And yet, I'm sexually attracted to some men and some women.

Nurglitch: 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.


This, more or less. I definitely think the notion that bisexuals want to fark everybody is ridiculous and juvenile at best. Heterosexuals have preferences. Homosexuals have preferences. Bisexuals have preferences. I have preferences (and genitals don't feature very high on the list of things I care about in a partner.) "You" have preferences. Folks need to get over it, already.

Kinsey, and yes. It's not considered the best work ever, but it's a solid overview and cuts down the idea that it's "100% hetero, 50/50 hetero/homo, or 100% homo".

Sometimes boobies are nice. Sometimes dicks are nice. But the personality of the body carrying those particular nice bits? Always more important.

Personality plays a very minor role if you're just looking to get laid, though.

Some people, regardless of orientation, just want to get laid. Some people, regardless of orientation, will only have sex within an emotionally involved relationship.

The probability that she is bisexual increases with the amount in your bank account.
 
2014-03-21 10:38:28 PM  
So wait. The LGBT community denies the existence of bisexuals?

OK then.
 
2014-03-22 01:20:42 AM  
As a bisexual woman, I'd like to say:
1) yes, we do exist
2) no we are not "confused", or straight women who are just trying to attract guys with fake bisexuality, or total sluts who are incapable of committed relationships with one gender (I, personally, happen to be poly, but it's not about feeling I need to have a male partner AND a female partner, it's about not thinking one person should be another person's be-all and end-all, and jealousy sucks, and monogamy really kinda fails for a lot of people. I'd still be poly if I were to decide I'm straight OR lesbian.). Nor are we really lesbians just claiming to be bi to keep straight privilege - that's absurd on its face, considering that we get homophobia and/or leering from straights and biphobia from lesbians, and COULD choose to avoid all of it by just identifying as straight.
3) no, I really don't want to be the second woman in your fantasy threesome experience. I'm not a sex toy, and that almost never turns out well for anyone involved. That goes for most bi women. (Since I'm poly, if you have an actual open relationship, where I'd be allowed to see either or both of you one-on-one with no hard feelings from the other, even if there wasn't ever a threesome, THEN you can ask.)

Bisexuals, for the most part, just happen to find other traits more important than which set of genitals a person has. Truth is, I'm very picky, as are a lot of us, just not about that particular thing. It's not about the genitals, it's about the person who genitals are attached too. I happen to find myself with more men than women, but I think that has a lot to do with lesbian culture, which I have zero in common with, and which is, in fact, largely anti-bi-women.

Also, the porn study is total crap. A lot of women, myself included, find most porn - especially most straight or lesbian porn made for men - to be TOTALLY unsexy, because the men are often hideous, and the women are 100% fake (fake boobs, fake hair, fake tan, fake lesbianism, fake orgasms....). A lot of women are just not that visually-oriented where sex is concerned compared to most men, and for even more of us (and I'm sure plenty of men, too), the people involved need to be attractive and into it, not creepy and faking! That's gonna skew the results pretty badly.

It's also a myth that bi people simply have more options than the rest of us, since a lot of people won't date someone who is bi for whatever reason.

I also don't see how bi people would be any less happy in marriage than we straight people are.  There are plenty of other women in the world, but straight guys don't necessarily chase any of them (and those who do tend to find themselves no longer married).  I imagine it's the same for a bi person, who might see an attractive man or woman but who manages to be enough of an adult not to jump into adultery.  No different from everyone else.

I identify as bi, but I've been married for 16yrs, and have remained monogamous. I've also had people say: "Well then, you're not really bi". No I am, I'm just not a philandering scumbag.
