Do I know you?!?

Abbreviations are tough, I know.

Quote
You're going more than a bit overboard here.  I drew analogies between homosexuals acting out other's negative stereotypes of themselves, and two minority groups theoretically doing the same.  If you failed to understand the point being made, then you should probably work on your knee-jerk reflexes before you have to deal with problem-solving in law school. 

Oh bull.  I wrote that post-stonewall the movement was about the termination of accepted modes of sexuality while it's now more about rights.  You turned around and did exactly what I accused others of doing and you continue to do so.  The whole point is that there should not be stereotypes about sexuality, that's what people were fighting for.  The civil rights movement was not about fighting for people to be looters, it's what so offensive about your analogies.  The fact that you dislike that an extremely small and nonthreatening group of people want to express themselves this way means there's still work to be done.  I was merely arguing that people shouldn't demonize those that choose to continue this tradition and that's all you continue to do.

id bet alot of people are curious...

i just dont find guys attractive...

and I don't find women attractive.  I just find it fascinating that one could be "curious".  If I were lesbian or bi, I would find that infuriating.   

im not sure i understand you  ???

Well, what I'm saying is that I would find it insulting (if I were lesbian or bisexual) for someone to be "toying" around with bisexuality or homosexuality when in fact they aren't.  It's hard enough meeting good people whether you are bisexual, heterosexual, or homosexual; for somebody to be just wasting time toying with someone's emotions.   I'd take it as an insult, but that's just me, I guess.

in general, this is true.  they're generally confused and/or repressed.  many come to terms gradually.

I think dishonesty about one's intentions really sucks no matter what form it takes.  But I totally understand people's confusion about the preferred genders of their sexual partners. For me, what I find attractive about people is much less about their private parts and stuff than it is about funny things like crooked noses and big hands.  When I was a teenager, I kind of figured out that this separated me from most (straight) people, and I found a place among the queers I knew -- hence my chosen and bumpy course of lesbianism.  But I have never been insulted by bicurious girl's suggestion that I am such a perfect exemplar of femininity that she could judge her attraction to women by having a few rolls in the hay with me. ;)
That's cool how you referenced a case.

if you're honest with yourself, i can't imagine not knowing after once, but self-deception and denial can also play an important role in flip-flopping.
