Would you ever date a bisexual person?

Yes

No

The arguments so far for not dating a bisexual person have been biased, homophobic slander. Regardless of your sexuality there is no more likelihood of cheating, that depends entirely on the type of person the individual. A person cheating is independent of their preference for the gender of their partner. If a bisexual were, for example, dating a male there is no increased likelihood of them 'craving the female anatomy' that would induce cheating.

Furthermore, a bisexual may be attracted to more than one gender. That does not mean they want to be in a polygamous relationship. That's is absolutely unrelated to their sexuality. It is just as likely that a hetrosexual or homosexual person would want a polygamous relationship, a bisexual is no more inclined than anymore else to want a relationship like that. So the creepy threesome fantasies and leers towards bisexual people need to stop, because its an unwelcome advance and is quite often inappropriate and uncomfortable for the person.

I agree, the arguments so far have been spoken out of ignorance. Wanting a polygamous relationship has nothing to do with your sexuality. Dating someone should be based on if you love them or want to get to know them better not there sexuality.

My argument was not homophobic slander considering that I am a homosexual. Plenty of gays don't want to date bisexuals for the same reason as straight people so homophobia has nothing to do with it.

Side: No

Hey you being homosexual is cool. But discriminating against someone because they identify with a sexual preference, that is a minority, is homophobic. The arguments for the 'no' side have been slanderous and based off ignorant misinformation. I addressed primarily the arguments that:

1. Being bisexual means you're more likely to cheat

and

2. Being bisexual is only okay, or even grosser 'hot', if they engage in a polygamous relationship.

If you side with these ideas, its discrimination and prejudice based off sexual preference.

How the fuck has this argument been upvoted by four people? Saying that I as a gay person are homophobic for refusing to date bisexuals is one of the dumbest ideas I have come across on this site.

My crush is Bisexual... and he (who is also transgender) is so sweet <3

Just like anyone else though, I'd be fine.

Only if she shared her female lovers with me.

I'd just have to slap them twice as much.

Side: Yes

I would, but maybe that is an irrelevant opinion since I consider myself bisexual.

Side: Yes

Why should that render your opinion irrelevant?

Because why would I reject a person with the same sexuality as myself?

If I dated a bisexual girl, I could watch her doing her girlfriend and that might be sexy. I don't know but it feels like making something positive out of negative is always a good thing. Especially when there isn't anything really negative about it. She couldn't help it.

Being heterosexual, I wouldn't go out with a guy who was bi because obviously I'm a guy. But I wouldn't mind a bi gf who was hott , esp if her gf was also hott.

Um, just because someone is bisexual doesn't mean they are polyamorous or have two relationships at a time.

Side: No

No, but there's the opportunity for them to be polyamorous. And that means it MIGHT happen.

Side: Yes

If I were dating a bi guy what if he were to decide that he can't live with his desire for vagina and breasts going unsatisfied? Because I can't give him that.

Side: No

There is the same risk of him wanting sex with other guys that there is him wanting sex with other girls. It's not as big a risk as I think you're making it out to be in your mind.

Side: Yes

It sure is a big risk. My gay friend refuses to date bisexual guys or even to get involved with them. He says that half the time they are 'shady' and two faced. Plus, he knows they probably crave the beauty of the female form, something he says he can't really Provide. Therefore, there is higher chances of them cheating and what not.

Side: No
1 point

No that's not true at all. I could quench his desire for the male body and for gay sex as I have a male body and can give him gay sex. Therefore he would be less likely to cheat on me with another queer. But obviously I can't satisfy his desire for women and the sex that a man has with a woman is different so I can't satisfy his need for that.

Side: No

It would probably negatively affect my chances of being elected so no.

Side: No

Whoa. Elected for what? Is it because of all those homophobes?

In the United States (where OP lives), probably nothing much higher than a local office in most places. And, yes, decidedly because of ignorant bigotry.

Side: Yes

That would probably depend upon the gender/sex of your partner. If you presented as a same-sex couple, people might be capable of overlooking the whole matter enough that it would not kill your odds completely. Still, a shitty consideration to even have to make.

Side: Yes

There are bisexuals granted and there are also those that label themselves bisexuals. And those that label themselves bisexual are really just questioning there sexuality. Those that question there sexuality can hurt there partner if there in a hetero relationship turn out to be gay. And they can also hurt there partner if they turn out to be hetero if in a homosexual relationship.

If this happens it can lead to trust problems and social problems.

Side: No

That's why you should be openly Bi-curious. Or maybe you can call yourself Heteroflexible! And no, I'm not trolling you.

Side: Yes

Side: Yes

I have dated 2 bi guys and both of them turned out to be straight unfortunately. And they hurt people when they do this. And they do not give a fuck.

Side: No
