One of the positive sides of bisexuality as Woody Allen once said was that it doubles your chances of getting a date on a Saturday night.Observed in various human societies and elsewhere in the animal kingdom throughout recorded history, the term, like the terms hetero- and homosexuality, was coined in the 19th century.
A bisexual has sexual or romantic attraction to both genders, although not necessarily to the same degree. People who have a distinct but not exclusive preference for one sex over the other may also identify themselves as bisexual. This gender description describes more how people feel, not necessarily how they act.
We’re all so programmed to believe that we must be one sex or the other. So concerned about the sex of each child that it is the first thing that is proclaimed as soon as a child is born with “It’s a Boy!” or “It’s a Girl” and then with a collective sigh of relief we count the fingers, toes, and give it the Apgar test.
The fact of the matter is we are all both sexes, with the dominant sex being represented by the genitals.
We all start off as female. If, at about the fifth week of gestation the Y chromosome activates, then the growing fetus becomes a male. If it does not activate, the growing life remains a female.
Why do men have nipples? There’s no obvious function for them. They are the last semblance of their femininity.
When we all come to realize that we are both male and female, we can embrace our other side, of softer side for the guys, our more assertive side for the females.
Instead of being all macho or all girly-girl, we can find that middle ground that makes for the well adjusted, well rounded person; the man who allows sensitivity and compassion and the woman who isn’t afraid to roll her sleeves up and get assertive.
Accepting both sides of your nature means not being prejudiced against either sex. We're all both sexes, more or less.
Wholeheartedly appreciating either sex for what it has to offer, without drawing a line in preference for one or the other, is a state that very few have come to grips with.
As a sexual orientation, it involves physical and/or romantic attraction to both males and females.
Especially in regards to men and women, it is one of the three main classifications of sexual orientation, with heterosexual and homosexual--all a part of the heterosexual-homosexual continuum.
It is important to remember that we all come from the same place and are all going back to the same place. Just because one of us doesn’t fit the mold of what is desirable, doesn’t mean they should be scorned, rejected, or destroyed.
Everyone has something to teach and something to learn.
If we can live with acceptance of one another, including the
acceptance of Bisexuality as a form of sexual orientation, we could all
get along much better.
