    I care very deeply for that. We don't need iPhone loyalists in office. Go Android or go home.

    It seems to me you are still confused about sexual orientation and sexual acts.

    A couple of things.
    First...her sexual orientation has ONLY been a point of consideration because of HER declarations. She has run for and won some form of political office in Oregon for over 20 years now and no one has cared.
    Second...I think bisexuality is far more commonly accepted than homosexuality. Bisexual people tend to present as more 'normal' (pull back the claws...not making a judgment...stating fact). In women, I dont think people find it all that upsetting or shocking. In men...well...once you get past the automatic negative response associated w/ man on man equals less of a man...you are back to 'but its not that big of a deal'.
    Third...Bisexuality kinda works both sides of the 'born that way' and/or 'we can choose our sexuality' argument.

    At the end of the day...its an Oregon thing...and people from Oregon have supported her for 20+ years.

    From a guys perspective...I hope her girlfriend is hot!

    That's what I came to this thread to collect. I want to know what is causing this to even be an issue for discussion.

    Not confused at all. If this is just her haveing feelings then there would be nothing to talk about. Since it's in the news then that means something happened which relates to her sexual preferences. Did she have a sexual relationship outside her marriage? Is a special interest group her key financial supporter? What?

    Do you have an example of that?

    Do you feel heterosexual governors have an unbalanced approach to heterosexual rights?

    What about religious governors?

    (and just to be clear - I don't think her bisexuality matters, to come back to the op)

    a) you have no proof that she is having sex with anyone but her husband

    b) many officeholders have committed adultery. A lot of them have lost their offices because of it. Others haven't. It's up to Oregon to decide

    On Friday afternoon, Gov. John Kitzhaber of Oregon resigned, and the Oregon secretary of state Kate Brown, also a Democrat, became the state governor. In an instant, Oregon had the first openly bisexual governor in American history.

    For many of Gov. Brown’s constituents, this may mean little, because she is married to a man, and has been for many years. The adjective becomes easy to explain away, then; bisexuality is often dismissed as something made up, a risqué adolescent antic, something college girls do to impress boys. Last January, Lisa Diamond, a scholar of sexual orientation, told the reporter Michael Schulman that many people feel bisexuality “is a transitional stage or a form of being in the closet,” but that in fact it’s more common than strictly same-sex attraction.
    Sexual preference has nothing to do with what you were elected or appointed to do.
