This summer’s video series, video #5: I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel comfortable telling anyone else what I think. And that’s just fine. I don’t think it’s even important to tell anyone else what I think. I know it’s important to me. And I know that telling you what I think is wrong.
I hate this. I think it’s just that I’m a little sensitive to the fact that it’s hard for me to be honest about bisexuality. I mean, its like if I was a girl and someone asked me, “Are you bi?”, I would answer “Yes”. Whereas if someone asked me if I was gay I would say, “Yes, of course I am.
I think some people would say that it is the best of both worlds. But that is certainly not the case. Bisexuality is a spectrum, so a person can be both bisexual and gay, and it can be a mixture of both. A very small minority of bisexuals are also straight. So being homosexual is not a contradiction in terms.
Being gay is not a contradiction in terms. Although it can be a challenge, I consider myself a very, very happy bisexual. I find that being queer has never had a negative impact on my life, and I’m proud of that. I have had a few close friends that I consider to be straight. I have a few friends that I consider bi, and I’m happy to be one of those people.
Being bisexual has never had to put me in a bubble. I have tried to be both straight and gay, and I have met people who have both. I have met many people who are bisexual, and there have been times I have wished I had been one of the two, but I don’t. It just has never really been a choice.
I think that we’re all aware of the differences between the two. People have different expectations of what’s normal or acceptable. You can’t just let the world be, you either know what’s wrong, or you know what’s right. I had a friend who I was super close to for a long time, but we didn’t really talk much. We didn’t talk about anything. She was bisexual, and I was bi.
I think you are both bisexual, but its a case of the two of us being a bit confused about some things. I dont think you are bisexual, I think your friend is, and thats why you dont know each other very well. So I dont think that is a problem for you. I think its good that you didnt talk to each other, or you would have talked about things you arent comfortable with. And you wouldnt be bisexual if you did.
I think you have a point here. I’m bisexual. I’m not very good at talking about it. I love your videos, its just that I dont know you well enough to know what to say. So I’m writing this up and going to make a video about it. I’m also going to make a video about some of the other things I have that you dont like about me.
I think that the problem with bisexuality is that it’s just a label that we all put on ourselves. We put on the label to cover up our true self, and it can be very damaging. We start to feel ashamed about our true self, and that can make it difficult for us to relate to people who aren’t like that. By putting an LGBT label on ourselves, we give ourselves a reason to feel ashamed, and also a reason not to try to fit in.
Having bisexuals as friends can be good for a lot of reasons, but the thing is that it isnt just something that we put on just to feel like we are on a level with other people. A bisexual person may just be more comfortable being themselves. It doesnt mean that they will act the same way as a straight person, or behave the same way as a person who is bi. A few of them may be able to talk to people outside their gender in a more natural way.
