    (Elizabeth, 2013). Even with the introduction of bisexuality, many sexualities, such as pansexuality are still being undermined and labelled as a ‘false sexuality’ (Elizabeth, 2013). In a world where heterosexuality reigns, anyone with a different sexuality is sometimes a bit timid to come out. However, eventually, homosexuality began to get more accepted, and is much more prominent in today’s society. In the past, no one would ever admit to being homosexual, or having homosexual fantasies. Now, however, “37% of men and 20% of women reported at least one homosexual experience that result in an orgasm” (Friedman et al. pg. 923, 1994) and since then, it can be assumed that the number has increased.

    What is bisexuality? The answer varies depending upon who is asking the question. Is bisexuality defined by identity, behavior, attractions or some combination of these? Where does bisexuality begin and end? Human sexuality is sometimes seen as a continuum, with same-sex attractions on one end and other-sex attractions on the other. Bisexuality, then, must fall somewhere in the middle. But where? Does bisexuality refer only to the middle point, or 50/50 attraction? There are many common…

    Bisexuality is a sexual orientation where one is attracted to both genders. Bisexuality is very similar to pansexuality, which is being sexually attracted to both sexes because one believes love is love. There is nothing wrong with liking both genders, nor is there anything wrong with liking the same gender as you. Even animals display gay and bisexual behavior! More than half of the LGBTQ community identifies as gay, about 52% are bisexual. There are many stereotypes about bisexual people,…

    A study was conducted by GLAAD, an organization that monitors the media portrayal of LGBT characters, in which they found the 2013-2014 TV season had “46 LGBT characters in total, out of which there were only 10 bisexual characters.” If that wasn’t a small enough number, “out of that minuscule number of bisexual roles, only two were male characters” goes on to describe just how little bisexuality is actually portrayed in the media. The world in the media is nothing like the world that actually…

    In addition to the women being impaired of contributing, on a greater scale, to their society, because of their gender, they are also not able to fully explore their sexuality during the first two time periods in which The Hours takes place—the early 20s and early 50s. A pivotal scene is when Laura kisses her neighbor and friend, Kitty: “Kitty’s face is against Laura’s breasts. She seems to relax into her. Laura lifts Kitty’s face, and puts her lips against hers. They both know what they are…

Dr. Esterberg holds a Ph.D and is the elected president at SUNY Potsdam. It is worth noting that her spouse is a woman who works at SUNY Potsdam as well. The first portion of her essay explores the paradox in which “bisexuality seems to be both everywhere and nowhere” (278). She expounds on this by discussing the almost…

    High school is a strange time for everyone. For some it was hard work and doing well in school, but for some it was an opportunity to grow socially.

It was filled with regret and missed opportunities. I never truly came into terms with what kind of person I was and who I am attracted to. I always had a skewed view on what liking someone…

    First example will be how from the acronym LGBTQIA, without a doubt the A will be confused as ally, whose definition is ”A person who does not identify as LGBTQIA, but supports the rights and safety of those who do”. This happens throughout life and then through GLAAD, a website to portray the hardships LGBTQIA go through but confuses their A for ally, contributing to the asexual erasure.
