If there's a god, damn it she won't mind.
If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
first off there are no denominators in sexuality, that is fractions. Now if you are using fractions as a metaphor fir something what is this common thing. (sorry, that common denominator thing is one of my pet peeves) I don't agree with you some people are not at all interested in one of the sexes. I believe bisexuals have that choice but we are not all bisexual.some of us are very much hereto and homo by instinct. So from a bisexual man's perspective i can accept your thought but you are not at all correct when you say we are all bi.I believe we are all bisexual. I believe that within that common denominator, people vary. I believe they choose to live as bisexuals, or they choose to live as homo- or heterosexuals all their lives, or switch once, or switch many times.
I wish I could be like you and not have the limits that come with monosexuality but i am not bisexual, you are. That would have been great to have been able to make love with women like I do with Evan, but we are all not bisexual.I think the common concepts of "orientation" and temporary-ness and permanence as related to orientation, are limiting. I think categories are mutually exclusive when they don't have to be. Dichotomous, binary thinking is so easy. Why have multiple alternative explanations when my brain can only grasp two opposing ones? Easy right? It's a crutch.
You are the one the one telling everybody they are wrong. You just told me i am bisexual, no i am not, i know meter than you about my sexuality.
Of course everything i'm saying is a major exception. If my ideas marched in perfect step with what the majority believed, I'd be like you... telling people they are wrong. heh. I only state what i believe. If it were common knowledge, i wouldn't need to express it.
Your opinions are your own, i think this is how your sexuality is, but you don't know mine, your statements are from your experience, I know you want to think everybody has your sexuality but we don't. There is a spectrum.
You suggested that it was circumstances that made me gay, you never elaborated on that "theory." Do so now, what circumstances?
At least get it right.
My perspective on you is that you are an "everybody is just like me opinion, there isn't even a choice of either or, its your way or no way.
you believe things about my sexuality? Its none of your concern. I am not bisexual I thought i was for a long time, I wanted to be because i could have a choice. But I am gay. Listen it isn't your way or no way. Most people can't change their orientation because that dint have the same orientation as you do. Yours is fixed you will always be bisexual, its the orientation with the most choice. But out will likely not change you even said it wouldn't.I believe that we all are bisexual. we only choose to live a certain way for a certain time (even if that time is our whole lifespan, it is still changeable, temporary, not absolute etc). Therefore, as a result of my belief, I do not feel like i am lying to myself. I feel, instead, that i have made a choice. I am bisexual. AND (not but) for all my years, I have lived as a heterosexual. I may live as a heterosexual until i die. but i have always been a bisexual. b/c the choice is available.
Let me put it this way, I have experienced bisexuality, I know first hand it isn't the same for everybody. I couldn't choose, i attempted. By your own Admission you are to scared to try. So don't sit in your ivory tower and tell somebody who has tried that they just didn't try hard enough. You don't know. I have walked the mile and survived you are to afraid to do so. So don't you lecture me on it..
You told me I am bisexual, I am not. Just because you are doesn't mean everybody is.
No, you assigned a one size fits all sexuality. There is nothing new about this "system" you "created." Sigmund Freud created it, Kinsey toyed with it. I am all for doing away with labels but that isn't going to happen. No heterosexual will take on the title of bisexual no homosexual will either, because its a lie. No pressure will come off this will create more. My experience is that bisexuals get the shortest end of the stick. Women don't like to date bi men because they don't want them running off with a man, and like wise with gay men same issue just swap the genders. I once identified as bi, no dates.i wish i could express it better. I simply challenge the common way of classifying orientation as being one or the other, permanently. if you take away that classification system, then the pressure of coming out should be diminished. And if the whole world accepts a new classification system, the pressure/fear will imo, disappear.
No the die has been cast you can't make people let go of fear of homosexuality or other sexualities. I don't care how you relabel it, its still going to be there. I think people will resent your system. Because many people are not bisexual.
In their paper, "Homosexuality as a Consequence of Epigenetically Canalized Sexual Development", Rice et al. hypothesize that heritable epigenetic markers play a role leading to homosexuality (Rice et al., 2012). They build off of the prenatal androgen paradigm, which attributes sexual development to fetal testosterone concentrations, and add the ammendment that specific epi-marks affect fetal testosterone sensitivity (Figure 1). Usually, these epi-marks are not heritable. However, occasionally they do get passed down to the next generation. The Rice et al. model predicts that testosterone sensitizing epi-marks originate from the father, while testosterone desensitizing epi-marks originate from the mother. With increased testosterone sensitivity, an XX fetus goes through masculinization (the degree depending on multiple epi-marks and other factors). Similarly, with decreased testosterone sensitivity, an XY fetus goes through feminization to some extent. Depending on the degree of feminization of masculinization, homosexuality can theoretically result (Figure 2).
Figure 1. The Sexual Dimorphism Signaling Pathway
Figure 2. SA-Epi-Marks and Homosexuality
It is well established that fetal androgen signaling strongly inﬂuences sexual development. We show that an unappreciated feature of this process is reduced androgen sensitivity in XX fetuses and enhanced sensitivity in XY fetuses, and that this difference is most feasibly caused by numerous sex-speciﬁc epigenetic modiﬁcations (“epi-marks”) originating in embryonic stem cells. These epi-marks buffer XX fetuses from masculinization due to excess fetal androgen exposure and similarly buffer XY fetuses from androgen underexposure. Extant data indicates that individual epi-marks inﬂuence some but not other sexually dimorphic traits, vary in strength across individuals, and are produced during ontogeny and erased between generations. Those that escape erasure will steer development of the sexual phenotypes they inﬂuence in a gonad-discordant direction in opposite sex offspring, mosaically feminizing XY offspring and masculinizing XX offspring. Such sex-speciﬁc epi-marks are sexually antagonistic (SA-epi-marks) because they canalize sexual development in the parent that produced them, but contribute to gonad-trait discordances in opposite-sex offspring when unerased. In this model, homosexuality occurs when stronger-than-average SA-epi-marks (inﬂuencing sexual preference) from an opposite-sex parent escape erasure and are then paired with a weaker-thanaverage de novo sex-speciﬁc epi-marks produced in opposite-sex offspring. Our model predicts that homosexuality is part of a wider phenomenon in which recently evolved androgen-inﬂuenced traits commonly display gonad-trait discordances at substantial frequency, and that the molecular feature underlying most homosexuality is not DNA polymorphism(s), but epi-marks that evolved to canalize sexual dimorphic development that sometimes carryover across generations and contribute to gonadtrait discordances in opposite-sex descendants.
Всем нужен мир.
I was just trying to make it clear that some people can choose and the existence of those people does not in any way shape or form make people similar to yourself illegitimate. You are what you are which is just a human being nothing more or nothing less. Yours and my sexuality in the large scheme of things doesnt matter. Who I am wouldn't be significantly different if I were gay, just small details. I would still be me just with a different sexual orientation. Male, female gay or not gay or whatever people are people and they are all basically the same. No orientation is the best, they just exist and thats that.
Most people how can choose their sexuality probably did so as virgins. ANd those that cant choose their sexuality had no need to kick the tires.
Its all very subjective.
Homosexuals merely become homosexual to annoy Conservatives. I'm convinced of it.
The options are limited to nature/nurture. That's probably a mistake.
