Did you know? Bisexuals are just people who are blessed with the inborn capacity to form enduring physical, romantic and/or emotional attractions to those of the same gender or to those of some other gender. There may be an individual attraction for one gender over others which can also be fluid and changeable over time.
Bisexuality is not synonymous with being polyamorous. Individual bisexual people may be celibate, monogamous or non-monogamous just as individual straight, lesbian or gay people can be.
No matter what the gender of the person they are partnered with, bisexual people remain bisexual. They do not suddenly switch orientation as if by magic when they enter into a serious relationship.
Other words that people sometimes use are ambisexual, hetroflexible/homoflexible, no labels, omnisexual, pansexual, queer and many more. People use them to describe how they feel or where they are on the Kinsey scale or the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid.
These different words tend to go in and out of style over the years. For example ambisexual was popular in the 1930’s. Some words are used more often in different places, for example “fluid” is very popular right now in California but pansexual is currently the “in” word on many college campuses mainly on the east coast and thru the midwest.
