Bisexual Women Catching Flack is Ironic

I find it very interesting that some folks in the LGBT community question the legitimacy of a bisexual's sexual orientation, after all of the negative layering, conditioning and assault strictly gay and lesbian people have themselves received. Sexuality is sexuality, no? If it's acceptable to be straight or gay, it is certainly acceptable to be bisexual. Love is love. Separatism has its roots in fear. Of all people, folks in the LGBT community should be very aware of the dangers that exist in judging another's orientation, or lifestyle preference.

Just ask Tila Nguyen, who despite appearances gives more thought to connections with people than many would think. She also quite admirably, chooses to be who she is despite naysayers who may find her choices unsavory.

The post through the link below inspired this train of thought.


And now a word from a Bisexual...

I have to admit that I've been watching the reality TV show with Tila. Of course, it doesn't help that the show seems to be on every hour on the hour (smile).

I agree that she has been very thoughtful in her approach to her bi-sexuality and to her relationship with the people staying at her house.

The last show I saw had her down to two choices ... one man; one woman. Should be interesting to see how she chooses her final love.

peace, Villager

Indeed, they beat viewers over the head with their shows/brands.

After seeing his jealous side, I'm hoping Dani wins. She seems to be the one person out of all the contestants that actually considers Tila's feelings. Tila would be missing out if she made another choice.

I have respect for Tila. There's more to her on a grassroots level than meets the eye. She's already forming a "crew" of people who will work together to make significant societal differences, and she's a hellafied business woman.
The fact that she can be who she is despite the flack, says alot about the strength of her character.

I love to see someone who isn't just another follower.

Thanks for stopping through, Villager ^_^

I've never seen the show, but I've always wondered why the gay community are not so keen on bi-sexuals. They say that they are born gay, and want people to accept them, why aren't they so receptive?

You know, I don't know. It amazes me, but I see a similar trend in folks that have been victimized on some level. It's almost like some of the issues of the abuser become the issue the abused have to fight to keep from developing in themselves. Being Bi doesn't mean a person is unfaithful it simply means they can love both sexes in a romantic sense. I don't think anyone should have to choose a side to be accepted. Humans are naturally too diverse a species for that kind of limitation.
