Bisexual people often encounter misconceptions and
myths about their sexuality. They are often marginalized or discriminated
against because of these myths, and it can make it more difficult for
bisexuals to "come out" and embrace their orientation.
Some common bisexual myths include:
* Bisexuality does not exist. This is simply denying the reality
that many people feel attracted to both sexes.
* Bisexuals are just confused gays and lesbians. This myth is an
extension of the previous one. It comes from a view that bisexuality
simply cannot be real and any attraction to the same sex is just repressed
homosexuality i.e. he's really gay, but he's afraid to admit it. This myth
is common among the homosexual community, possibly because they see
bisexual people as a challenge to their solidarity. After all, they've
fought hard to establish an identity and bisexuality is seen by some as
proof that gays and lesbians can "choose" their lifestyle.
* Bisexuals are promiscuous. There are many bisexual people who are
happily monogamous. There are also those who have one night stands, those
who have "open relationships", and there are also serial
bisexual monogamists. Bisexuals are keen to point out that number of
partners or frequency of sex have little to do with the basic attraction
they feel to both sexes.
* Bisexuals cause AIDS. HIV and AIDS are caused by unsafe sex or
intravenous drug use. Bisexuals can be just as unsafe or safe as any other
Bisexual life will continue to be difficult while such myths are
prevalent. The only real weapon is education and tolerance.
