Today - 23rd September - is "Celebrate Bisexuality Day" : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celebrate_Bisexuality_Day

My young companion is bisexual, and I think in many ways it's more difficult than being out-and-out gay is (at least in the more liberal parts of the world, such as the UK).

"The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. ... Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night devoid of stars." Martin Luther King

I think it is hard for those who are not bisexual to appreciate that it exists and is not a universal blessing.

We are, many of us, occasionally bisexual, in that we can find a member of 'the wrong' sex appealing sometimes. But we do not recognise that bisexuality in ourselves.

Some of us know they are bisexual. I suspect it is harder to come out as such, though, than to come out as being homosexual.
