It's the most uncommon sexuality, as people are either heterosexual (most commonly) or homosexual.
Often enough, bisexuals experience some form of discrimination, doubt or questioning. Many homophobics do not like the "homosexual" aspect of being bisexual, and there are also people who think bisexuals are:
This is bullshit, because you can't be "greedy" because you're ATTRACTED to both sexes, doesn't mean you HAVE both sexes. Plus even if you do have both sexes, it's their choice to be with you, right?
* Can't make up their mind/sexually confused.
This can actually be true, but not all bisexuals are confused. Is it that hard to like both?
* Only do it for attention.
While it's true you get some girls who claim to be bisexual to appeal to guys/guys claim to be bisexual to appeal to girls. Again. It doesn't mean all bisexuals are "heterosexuals in disguise".
* Like both males and females equally.
Again. SOME do, but not all. Some bisexuals prefer one gender over the other, it doesn't diminish their bisexuality though. It's possible for a man to prefer women, but would not mind having a sexual and romantic relationship with other men also. It's what bisexuality is all about.
BEST of BOTH worlds.
guy: yes, I like porno.
me: do you like only girl-girl?
guy: no, I like guy-girl, too.
me: Okay, do you like the guys to have a small penis only
guy: no, I like hard, throbbing cocks!
me: okay, then.

Unfortunately, a minority exists in the bisexual crowd that thinks either A: Everyone is bi and straight or gay people are just in denial B:thinks they are superior to straight or gay people because they have a more "open mind" or C: Say they are bi just because they want to seem hip and/or progressive
"I'm not bisexual. It's not because I'm homophobic, I just quite frankly don't find men attractive."
"Just because you say you are bi doesn't make you counterculture"
Being bisexual can be really complicated, trust me. If you are attracted to the opposite gender your whole life, and suddenly one day you find yourself lusting after someone of the same gender, it can be really confusing sometimes. If one of your friends tells you that they are bi...just give them support and don't go around telling everybody you know. As I mentioned earlier, some people are biphobic. :(
Synonyms Include: 'bi', 'ambisextrous', 'purple', 'going both ways', 'swinging both ways', 'bending both ways', 'batting for both teams', and 'drinking from both taps', to name a few.
Me: Except me.
2. Keeks: So, were you born that way?
Me: Yup, I naturally drink from both taps.
3. I believe that I am bisexual. I am attracted to people of both genders, though I myself prefer girls. For me, the crushes I have on guys and girls feel different somehow. When I like a guy, all I see is his face - I never look at his body at all, and I could care less if he is short or tall or skinny or if he has abs or not as long as he's not morbidly obese or totally anorexic. For girls, it's different. While I do focus mostly on a person's face in general, I actually SEE girl's bodies as being attractive. I especially love their curves...;)
I AM PURPLE AND PROUD OF IT!!! :D BISEXUALS FTW!!
Does not generally mean they are overly-sexed, confused about their sexual preference, trying to hide their true sexuality or sleep around with anyone they can find.
Bisexulality is quickly becoming more and more common - although often still used in derogatory terms, i.e. to portray slutty behaviour - as people become more open with their sexuality. It doesn't always mean they enjoy both sexes equally.
It is often more accepted in females, although that can also mean they might be thought of as 'easy'.
