why do people think you cant be bisexual....you have to be straight or gay

if someone is physically attracted to both males and females then they are attracted to males and females.


they say if someone claims to be bisexual "oh he/she is really just gay"

Personally I think people who claim to be bi-sexual are just greedy.

Well thru many tests and studies by psychologists,they have found that there are women who are bi-sexual. However in men, for those who have been tested who have claimed to be bi-sexual, testing has shown them to either prefer men or women and therefore not true bi-sexuals. Women can be equaly attracted to both sexes.

Let's turn the question around. Why do you think it is possible? It seems a confusion on how to find a mate. Pick a team and play hard, play to win!!!

Well DB.. Actually the author of the study was a woman.. LOL I am only stating what clinical studies have shown.

It doesn't make sense to me, but what do I know. Besides I am a trisexual, I will try anything once..

I think that some people are just greedy when it comes to bi-sexuallity. But then there are people like me. When i date a guy... i only date that one guy. Same goes for a women, if im dating a girl, i only date that one girl. I dont do threesomes.

Of course…cake is for eating, what the heck else are you supposed to do with it. I’m sorry, I just don’t get it. Sexual attraction or behavior to people of both sexes does not constitute being greedy . Are ambidextrous people greedy too, lol

The American Heritage dictionary describes greedy as: Excessively desirous of acquiring or possessing, especially wishing to possess more than what one needs or deserves. Seems that could just as easily apply to straight or bi.

Exactly and everyone deserves only ONE person at a time. That one person can't be both male and female unless they're a tranny.

Sorry but my statement stands......People who are "bi-sexual" strike me as being greedy. Its an excuse to have sex with multiple people.

I agree with you. I think they are very greedy and can't be trusted.Perhaps they will end up on the Jerry Springer Show! I also think they are a mass of confusion because they figure they don't have to pick a gender and they never get in touch with who they really are. ( Just my opinion, I'll never understand them. I'm hetro)

HATE TO HAVE TO CORRECT YOU, BECAUSE YOU SEEM TO KNOW IT ALL! HOW EVER YOUR INCORRECT ON YOUR KNOWLEDGE! ....there are very few humans that are born with both male n female organ but it dose happen!

EDUCATE YOURSELF ON THE SUBJECT BELOW! YOUR WELCOME A HEAD OF TIME! LOL

The older term for this condition, hermaphroditism, came from joining the names of a Greek god and goddess, Hermes and Aphrodite. Hermes was a god of male sexuality (among other things) and Aphrodite a goddess of female sexuality, love, and beauty.

Although the older terms are still included in this article for reference, they have been replaced by most experts (and patients and families) because they are misleading, confusing, and insensitive. Increasingly this group of conditions is being called disorders of sex development (DSDs).

Alternative Names
Disorders of sex development; DSDs; Pseudohermaphroditism; Hermaphroditism; Hermaphrodite Intersex can be divided into four categories:
46, XX Intersex
46, XY Intersex
True Gonadal Intersex
Complex or Undetermined Intersex
Each one is discussed in more detail below. Note: In many kids the cause of intersex may remain undetermined, even with modern diagnostic techniques.

46, XX Intersex. The person has the chromosomes of a woman, the ovaries of a woman, but external (outside) genitals that appear male. This usually is the result of a female fetus having been exposed to excess male hormones before birth. The labia ("lips" or folds of skin of the external female genitals) fuse, and the clitoris enlarges to appear like a penis. Usually this person has a normal uterus and Fallopian tubes. This condition is also called 46, XX with virilization. It used to be called female pseudohermaphroditism. There are several possible causes:

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (the most common cause).
Male hormones (such as testosterone) taken or encountered by the mother during pregnancy.
Male hormone-producing tumors in the mother. These are most often ovarian tumors. Mothers who have children with 46, XX intersex should be checked unless there is another clear cause.
Aromatase deficiency. This one may not be noticeable until puberty. Aromatase is an enzyme that normally converts male hormones to female hormones. Too much aromatase activity can lead to excess estrogen (female hormone); too little to 46, XX intersex. At puberty these XX children, who had been raised as girls, may begin to take on male characteristics.
46, XY Intersex. The person has the chromosomes of a man, but the external genitals are incompletely formed, ambiguous, or clearly female. Internally, testes may be normal, malformed, or absent. This condition is also called 46, XY with undervirilization. It used to be called male pseudohermaphroditism. Forming normal male external genitals depends on the appropriate balance between male and female hormones; therefore, enough requires the adequate production and function of male hormones. 46, XY intersex has many possible causes:

Problems with the testes. The testes normally produce male hormones. If the testes do not form properly, it will lead to undervirilization. There are a number of possible causes for this, including XY pure gonadal dysgenesis.
Problems with testosterone formation. Testosterone is formed through a series of steps where each requires a different enzyme. Deficiencies in any of these enzymes can result in inadequate testosterone and produce a different syndrome of 46, XY intersex. Different types of congenital adrenal hyperplasia can fall in this category.
Problems with using testosterone. Some people have normal testes, make adequate amounts of testosterone, but still have 46, XY intersex.
5-alpha-reductase deficiency. People with 5-alpha-reductase deficiency lack the enzyme needed to convert testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). There are at least 5 different types of 5-alpha-reductase deficiency. Some of the babies have normal male genitalia, some have normal female genitalia, and many have something in between. Most change to external male genitalia around the time of puberty.
Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS). This is the most common cause of 46, XY intersex. Here the hormones are all normal, but the receptors to male hormones don't function properly. There are over 150 different defects that have been identified so far, and each causes a different type of AIS. AIS has also been called testicular feminization.
True Gonadal Intersex. Here the person must have both ovarian and testicular tissue. This might be in the same gonad (an ovotestis), or the person might have one ovary and one testis. The person may have XX chromosomes, XY chromosomes, or both. The external genitals may be ambiguous or may appear to be female or male. This condition used to be called true hermaphroditism. In most people with true gonadal intersex, the underlying cause is unknown, although in some animal studies it has been linked to exposure to common agricultural pesticides.

Complex or Undetermined Intersex Disorders of Sexual Development. Many chromosome configurations other than simple 46, XX or 46, XY can result in disorders of sex development. These include 45, XO (only one X chromosome), and 47, XXY, 47, XXX -- both cases have an extra sex chromosome, either an X or a Y. These disorders do not result in an intersex condition where there is discrepancy between internal and external genitalia. However, there may be problems with sex hormone levels, overall sexual development, and altered numbers of sex chromosomes.

why do people think you cant be bisexual<--------I can't answer for anyone but myself , but I believe one can be " bi-sexual"


BI-SEXUA L is a sexual desire toward both sexes

HOMOSEXUAL is a sexual desire toward another of the same sex

I Don't feel it has anything to do with being " greedy" "selfish" or what ever one may want to label it as being.
As for myself, I feel a person is either born with the jean that attracts them to both sex's ,just as a person being homosexual is.
OR one may do it because they are curious.
OR because the same sex knows how to please them,
OR because the same sex can please them better, then a man they have encounter could<-I call lack of communication there).

Right wrong or indifferent in ones mind. their choice should be respected.

As for myself I am Heterosexual
