"I’ve learned that the labels we put on ourselves are merely descriptors for where we are in our life."
Maybe we should go beyond labels and probe a little deeper.
Since the dawn of science, sexual attraction, identity, and behavior have never been the same for everyone. Every study of human sexuality known to man has always shown a discordance between the three.
Maybe we should stop worrying so much about identity and get down to what you really seem to care about.
If you are a woman who doesn't like women who have had sex with a man or can even fathom sleeping with a man, maybe you should ask them about their sexual attraction and behavior instead of just their identity. Point being, most really don't care how someone identifies, they care about their behavior. But no one can seem to get it through their skulls that identity and behavior aren't the same thing.
I also think it's weird that some lesbians seem to be proud to "turn a straight girl"; but can't stand to be with a bisexual woman...What's up with that?
An interesting statistic...There are more straight identified women, who are attracted to other women, than there are bisexual and lesbian women combined. You can google any sexuality study (that measures attraction and identity) world wide and get the same result.
"Girls in the middle are always going to pick the guy, right?"
No, girls in the middle who pick the girl are called lesbian by the LGBT and straight communities; sometimes despite their own sexual identity.
Case in point, Jillian Michaels. Recently did an interview with PrideSource..." I didn't even know I was (gay) until later in life. I mean, I realized I was bisexual at about 18 but I didn't even realize I was gay until into my 20s."
Now this is after years of internet speculation that brushed off her bisexual identity and was waiting for her to come out as gay.
But God forbid her current relationship ends and she starts dating a man...I'll just sit back with the popcorn.
Such an odd circle. When bisexuals were being added to the LGBT, they were seen as gay people who just hadn't fully committed to being gay. Bisexuality was just a phase; And eventually they would come out as gay.
Now they are seen as people who are always going to take the easy way out (being straight).
Actually, it's the same shit. If you are polite enough to accept a person's identity as bisexual, yet you think they are going to end up with a man...You're still saying that bisexuality is a phase.
