I know it's fluid, but I just don't see the strongly or weakly gay or straight thing-you're either gay or straight. I'm coming from the point of view that you're born gay or straight. So from that point of view the other would be experimentation-or as a result of societal norms or family issues, etc. when you're gay but you're in relationships with the opposite sex for those reasons. Why you'd be in sexual relationships with the same sex if you're born straight-well don't get my head all hurting this early in the morning

So I don't believe you're born strongly or weakly straight or gay. How you behave as straight or gay , does that make you strongly or weakly straight or gay? It's not something that I can easily define or explain.

Unless you're bi-, bi-curious, bi-questioning...

Well I'd say after about a year it was about more than holding But the emotional part, I'd guess you're most likely right about that. But does it take getting involved with a woman sexually and emotionally in order to understand that and deal with it? And for about a year? I'm not speaking about your friend personally, not my place at all and I wouldn't do that. But if you figure that out on your own and look for that in a man..then the real question becomes can you find that exact equivalent in a man, or as close to exact as you can get for your ideal level of love and attraction and compatibility?

I don't know about the bi or bi curious issue, don't know nearly enough about bisexuality to even begin there.

I think this is what everyone is looking for. Intimacy and friendship. When people can't find it they get frustrated and look for it wherever they can.

maybe because it's easier to come out now than it was before.

Are you using yourself as an example?

Because I've got say, if so, it's a compelling argument.

Considering the young age of the females in question, my guess is those numbers reflect experimentation more than orientation. Despite the progress of gay rights in recent decades, male homosexual activity remains far more stigmatized than female, so inhibitions against casual experimentation would be stronger there as well.

before I edited my post
I did take responsibility for all of it.

But, I did not want to be that arrogant.

People who claim bisexuality, according to these critics, are usually homosexual, but are ambivalent about their homosexuality or simply closeted. "You're either gay, straight or lying," as some gay men have put it.

In the new study, a team of psychologists directly measured genital arousal patterns in response to images of men and women. The psychologists found that men who identified themselves as bisexual were in fact exclusively aroused by either one sex or the other, usually by other men.

When I was a kid, when I had attractions, it was mainly to boys, whereas since the age of 19 or so (to my disadvantage, in some ways, heh heh) it has only been women that I am attracted to.

So I'm not exactly sure where I fit into the rather pat and simplistic theories outlined in this remarkable research.

I'm not sure that I'd identify as bi, I think I probably am straight in any meaningful sense, but going to same-sex schools with a lack of females around messes you up, at least in my experience it did, in the sense that it still holds me back with women.
