Great article on the hurdles facing bi-sexuals.

I love the term two spirited. Inclusion is a good thing

I think this article is pretty good.

I know a lot of gay people feel this way, that if you say that you are Bi-sexual, it's another way of saying "by (Bi) the way, I'm gay." This is what I was told when some gay guy on the street wanted me to sigh a protest sheet in NYC for Gay-Rights, but the guy didn't believe Bi-sexuality existed, so I refused to sign his sheet for being close-minded.

The LGBT is great for supporting SA victims. I'm not bi/gay myself but wish I was. They have a lot of services.

Iím a father to a bi sexual daughter who dated almost exclusively women during her high school and college years. I fondly remember walking with her along the beach during those times and each of us pointing out the females we found attractive my wife smiling and shaking her head. Oddly and to our surprise about five years ago she fell in love with a really fine man and married him. Though they are in a monogamous relationship he is aware of and comfortable with her bisexuality. The reason I mention this is because my daughter was strongly rejected by the particular lesbian community she had become attached. It seemed as if they saw her decision as a betrayal. Human sexuality is complicated filled with fun and interest twist and turns itís a shame when so many people think it should only be straight.

P.S. Now all four of us walk along the beaches pointing out the females we find attractive with my wife still shaking her head, smirking.
