No, it doesn't. Labels applied to people are never absolute, because people are more complicated than any label can ever pin down: a vegetarian can eat meat, a Catholic can use birth control, a pacifist can hit somebody, a straight person can have a same-sex encounter, a Republican can vote for a Democrat. But all those labels may still be the best fit for the people involved.
If a lifelong Vegetarian succumbs to temptation and eats a hamburger does that mean he must now call himself a Carnivore?
It depends on whether or not the carrot salad was actually sausage.
The post isn't about the statistical outliers nor one person. Individuals can and do call themselves anything they please.
I second this. A bi man sometimes has straight sex and sometimes gay sex. Bi sex is a term which allows the bi man to not label himself gay.Few things.1) why should a bi man label himself gay? If he is bi he isnt gay any more than he is straight. Dont like a tendency among some of the gay community to say a bisexual is someone who hasnt got the courage to admit they are gay. If you want respect for your sexuality then respect other peoples.2) if a person, of either sex, is in a group sex scenario and actively engaged with members if different sexes at the same time then what is that?3) does it really matter? Why the obsession with labels and the minute detail of whether they are right or not. Someone is having sex with someone else. Leave it at that.
That's 100% not what was said. The issue is about the way bisexual is defined as heterosexual when it's mf and bisexual when it's mm or ff. You don't see that as avoiding the same sex aspect just a touch?
And again this isn't about one person not intended to refer to one person nor should it be taken as such. You start off discussing sexuality in general then go back to 'it's nobody's business'. Of course. I can talk about dogs without meaning that Irish setter named Toby. So can we talk of language without meaning one specific Person.
I call myself gay have had relationships with men and women and am slightly on the genderfluid side. My labels don't match. But I don't call sex with women gay sex or sex with men straight sex or either bi sex. Not here but in a bbs i am on there was a serious discussion about how gay men were growing beards to trick straight men into gay sex instead of straight sex with other straight men. Absolutely ridiculous. It's ok to have same sex attraction and when two dudes go at it they are getting the homosexual on. If they want to call it something else, fine. But it's avoiding the obvious.
who cares in the nudists world should not be an issue, we just naked should not be a topic here!!!!
So the category is sexuality. This is a discussion of language use in the community and in others like it. Where would you put this discussion? And if this isn't in the right place what should be here?
I assure you that issues big and small permeate all aspects of life including nudism and the homophobia in some sectors is frankly rabid. I'm pleased with this community of great people who generally care. I do too. It's not a pick up or a wank topic. Language use.
I'm not going to get into too much of a battle to defend the existence of my sexual identity, but I will share a few points:
1. My sexual identity is NOT determined by whom I'm in a relationship with. That's ludicrous. Its not that we're having "bi sex". He's gay. I'm bi. We just call it sex. He's not more gay nor am I less bi for it.
2. Bi = Sexual attraction for 2 or more genders. Pan = Gender is irrelevant. You can be a bi person that likes men and women, sure, but there are more than just binary genders out there (quite frankly, whether you accept that or not)
3. Please do some research on the subject before hip firing on a subject of someone's literal identity. Erasure is not cool.
Have a good one.
