    Its like this choose A B or C (A being Straight, B being Bi, C being not straight) So obviously choosing A isnt choosing B or C.
    Except it isn't a choice in my case, and many other cases.

If a heterosexual has sex with a member of the same sex, that doesn't make them bisexual, or homosexual, it makes them someone who's engaged in homosexual activity.
    i agree that orientation = who you are attracted. I believe we can change our attractions.

    Can you choose to be attracted to a woman who you find incredibly unattractive?

    No, bisexual is an orientation separate from others. if we are all bisexual there is only one orientation, that is bisexual. If you are bi you aren't straight or gay. Choosing monogamy with one sex doesn't alter the bisexual orientation.

    That's not really accurate either. It's a sliding scale with most on one side or the other. The ones in the middle play around more and boys tend to have homosexual experiences at certain ages and men in certain situations. That's not bisexuality however, just homosexual acts.
