Being Bisexual

We are often label, classified and sorted into groups. Democrat or Republican, religious or atheist, white collar or blue collar, we have an almost obsessive need to group people by a simple word or term.

Male bisexuals are a subgroup of a subgroup that is often often minimized, forgotten or sometimes questioned to even exist by some. As a 40 something, educated, out bisexual male in an open marriage, I can attest to the poor treatment I’ve received by many groups.

Many gay men tell me I’m just confused or greedy and need to pick a side. So disappointing from a group that is very familiar with the struggle against ignorance & intolerance.

Couples my wife and I were dating abruptly stopped when I mentioned I was bi. Vanillas are the most confused if not by my sexual preference then by my open marriage.

While I don’t want to speak for others in a similar positions, I am real person. I am not myth, I am not confused, and I do not need to change to fit your way of thinking.
