Ruthie, the hawaiian bisexual alchoholic w/ a military girlfriend named Jess who I believe she cheated on w/ a guy about mid way through. There was also Genesis. And maybe one other. But, non MTV reality? i can't think of a single lesbian

I beleive Chip and Reichen broke up shortly after they completed TAR. Richard Hatch, the first winner of Survivor, was openly gay throughout the show. He blasted stereotypes and showed America that gay men can be just as nasty and obnoxious as straight men. At this point on network television, gay men are either asexual best friends of straight women or groomers of wayward straight men. Lesbian characters do not exist. Reality tv allows for a little more diversity.

This thread is nice and cozy. The debate threads are worth reading only because that's where you learn who your real friends are.

I've been wanting to respond to this. I don't think bisexuals understand that this fear is very real. They think lesbians are just being mean. But it isn't like we just woke up one morning and decided to hate bisexuals. My resentment is a result of having been badly hurt. Yes, I know that a lesbian could leave me for another woman, but watching a woman you love choose a man over a woman hurts 100x worse. Only another lesbian can truly understand this. Some may call this "biphobia" but I call it self-defense.

Just bumping this thread for no reason, as it seems I don't really fit into the "Men's Forum" with all its heterosexual threads, and I can't post in the "Women's Forum."



But we have a smilie.

hey mikie - i don't know if this has been covered - because i dieted this thread and skipped some of the middle (i promise i'm going to go back and read it all) - but i have to know did that guy at the beginning of the year ever come back? (the one who asked you out for coffee at work)



i would take you out for coffee if you'd go - and if the flight wasn't so long.

No, he never did. At least... if he did, he never said anything to me, and I didn't recognize him.

You're right. I don't understand. I imagine it would hurt for a lesbian to be left for another woman, if it came down to gender reasoning. If a man left me for another man, I might think, "well, he wanted a man, and I'll never be a man". If he left me for another woman, I might think "I'm a woman, but clearly not the right woman/good enough of a woman/as good as that other woman. I think that would hurt more.

"I think everyone's bisexual to some degree or another; it's just a question of whether or not you choose to recognise and embrace it. Personally, I think choosing between men and women is like choosing between cake and ice cream. You'd have to be daft not to try both when there are so many different flavours."

Sorry for the negativity. I have a negative outlook on life and an inability to maintain relationships of any sort. There is a special place in Hell for whoever invented unrequited love. Honestly, did someone think it was a good idea to torture people with what they can't have?

Verbi-



Unrequited love does suck. I know this is easier said than done, but take heart! You're a beautiful, fun, and intelligent woman. Your day (and partner) will come.



And for what it's worth, you have my favorite screen name.

In this months issue of Teen Magazine, there's a really cool article on transgendered teens, it tells the story of two teens, male and female, and also some reader and parent questions they answered. I suggest picking up a copy! (I got the article photocopy'd, if the scanner works I'll scan it, but I doubt it will)

Very cool, huh? I'm surprised Survivor hasn't mad an issue out of it. I guess being gay isn't getting the ratings it used to. To my knowledge, I haven't heard a word about it on the show and wouldn't know it at all if I didn't read supplemental material on the web.



So, next week I'm flying home and it'll be the first time I've seen my parents since I told them. My sister is picking me up from the airport and she's going to drive me to their house and then... they're going to die of a heart attack because they're not expecting me and have no idea I'm showing up.



I think it'll be fine with my mother, but my sister said to me on the phone tonight "I'm just letting you know, I'm not sure how dad's going to react because he hasn't talked to anyone about it since he found out."



My dad is the type of person that keeps everything in and never talks about his feelings. He was a mommy's boy and they were neighbors until the day she died. Her grave is within a quarter mile of my home in Vermont and he's never seen it since the day she was buried and that was 10 years ago and he never mentions her either. So that's the type of person we're dealing with...



I can picture getting home and everything will be normal and the topic will never come up, or who knows, maybe something exciting will happen and I'll have to stay at my sister's house for the week.



Dunno. Any pointers?

If your dad is anything like mine (and I get the strong impression that he is...) he'll act like nothing has changed. Let him have his denial. it's really not worth the struggle to make him talk.



Your mom will very likely get you by yourself and have "the talk" with you. be very very patient....

hi all.. just found this thread and wanted to say... a Kinsey number 5 bisexual in the house... in a het relationship. it's the weirdest thing ever, i swear.



anyway, long and short coming out story--- i was never "in" to myself. i always knew but being in a fundie house i decided it was a secret no one could ever know. being occationally attracted to guys made it easier to hide. i told my parents when i was 15 but they didn't believe me and thought it was a phase. it wasn't until a few years later (i think i was 18) a local "diversity" org. decided (w/o asking me) and ANNOUNCED IN THE LOCAL PAPER that i would be speaking at their event (i had gained a little queer noteriety in my small town by this point). my parents read the paper and kicked me out of the house. several years went by and we are friends again now. so there, the reader's digest version.



on another way more serious off topic-ish note... it's very hard to feel like you live in two worlds. as a bisexual who is almost not, i feel like the "queer world" is my home. but then, i started seeing and fell for a guy and totally lost my community. it's just... well, lonely.

Good luck, Mikie! I'm afraid I haven't dealt with that situation personally, because my mom took the news much better than yours. ^^;; Be patient. No matter what happens, you're still my hetero lifemate.

That makes me feel so warm and cuddly.



I have a bit of a crush on, I believe his name is, Ameet Chana from Bend It Like Beckham. Odd thing though, the girl I find just as attractive. Gotta love that.

Hi !!!



I'm Heather, another one of your straight neighbors. I support all of you 100%



Mikie, I was wondering how the visit with your parents went ???



I read the entire thread and feel like I know all of you.



Be proud of who you are. Gay Bi or Straight, it is not what you are and only a small part of who you are.



Love you all



Heather
