Some of us are attracted to people regardless of gender.
Bisexual people can be found in all walks of society, and everywhere in the world.
A lot of myths and misconceptions surround it though. We call this our "Bisexuality FAQ", but you may notice there's not many questions on it.
It's also true that a lot of the list that follows is "Bisexuals aren't..." and some people have asked us "why can't you be more positive and say all the nice things that bisexuals are? That's difficult - when people repeat the myth "Bisexuals are Indecisive" they mean "Bisexuals are more indecisive than other people".
We could counter that by saying "Bisexuals are decisive", but we don't think that we're get described as "being tall". Some bisexuals are confused about bisexuality but far more people who aren't bi have confusing beliefs about bisexuality.
We think bisexuals are just as decisive, confused, honest, red-haired, tall or fat as everyone else - but the only clear shorthand for "Bisexuals are Just As Decisive As Everyone Else" is "Bisexuals Aren't Indecisive". Here at the Bisexual Index, we believe that a bisexual is someone who is attracted to more than one gender.
Everyone accepts that it's possible for a person to be attracted to people of more than one height, weight, hair colour, or race. If you're wondering if you are bisexual, take our bisexuality test! It's not 'greed' if someone likes chocolate cake fruit salad.
Some bisexuals prefer androgynous partners, some don't.
Some really love the differences between the sexes, others don't see those differences.Some of us are only attracted to 5% of one gender, and 60% of the other - you don't need to be 50/50 or have those add up to 100.Greed isn't a wide range of desire or attraction; it's excessive attraction.Some people seem to confuse being attracted to more than one gender with being attracted to everyone.We think this is rather silly - it's a bit like saying that lesbians or straight men are attracted to all women, or straight women and gay men are attracted to all men. You don't have to be equally attracted to red-heads and brunettes to be attracted to both, and preferring lettuce to liver doesn't make you a vegetarian, so why do some people insist that "true" bisexuals are exactly and equally attracted to men and women?We suspect it's to keep the numbers of bisexuals down, or to excuse themselves from identifying as bi.
