"Well, if you could hypothetically have a crush on a guy, even if you never have, then you are bisexual."

By this logic everyone is bisexual.

Sexual orientation mimicry as a mating strategy. It's... well some animals mimic the opposite sex as a reproductive strategy. .... And I just realized what I wrote there, but I was truly thinking about the lesser animals.

Thanks for laugh, hahahahaha. I didn't even realize it til you pointed it out, LOL.

Yeah exactly see that's how they arrive at thinking like that. Hypothetically, if I could fly, I would... but I can't.

Yeah, that is exactly how they describe it on tumblr though, believe it or not. Maybe those sorts of examples would be good to post here.

Not to mention all of the material benefits, in academia and the corporate world, that come along with identifying as some sort of disturbed freak.

Virtually everyone is bisexual according to woke logic, anyway. Consider the straightest macho man in the world: if he would still be attracted to, say, Scarlett Johansson even after Scarlett Johansson came out as trans to "identify" as male, he would be bisexual according to woke "logic".

And all the lesbians who were attracted to Ellen Page and now she is ~Elliot Page~? All bisexual obviously duh! As I've never been that attracted to her honestly, just uh she's cute and all but nothing special, I guess OOF for now I passed the 'gay' test lmaaaaao.

I was always into her, even before she came out, since she's my type and all. She was the only celebrity I have had a total crush on :( The only guy I ever loved lol

Among the many reasons I stfu about my sexuality. Being a bi male is yet again illegitimate, just in a new woke way.

No. Stand up for your friend and encourage him to stand up for himself. If it is extremely unlikely that he would ever date or have sex with another man, then he’s straight.

Fortunately he is confident in himself enough to not be pressured by this sort of thing :) I told him it was total bullshit. And he is indeed straight.

I'm a 28 year old straight male and I have not heard anything about what you're describing.

Makes sense, thanks for responding. My friend lives in a very liberal area, perhaps that's part of why? I was surprised to him describe that, though.

I'm the complete opposite, I live in a very conservative area of Pennsylvania which has more Confederate flags than the South.

I have seen it online, but never in real life. I can imagine if you move in perhaps arts/theatre/social academia circles in London or some other major world city there might be a degree of pressure to be quiet about your heterosexuality to ensure you are not viewed as small minded and closed to new experiences.

[–]reluctant_commenter[S] 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

This is none of those circles, believe it or not. My friend works in retail. That's part of why I was so surprised. But, it's a very liberal area.

I have not heard of this happening. If you guys are in your early 20s that makes more sense though, because everybody Gen Z wants to be "queer" for some reason. So I could believe it.

people often casually suggest that bisexual/gay men are more empathetic than straight men and straight women want to date empathetic men

That's especially weird to me, because many women would not want to date a man who is bi. Straight people, in general, just prefer to date each other.

I've never had anyone say something like that to me. 25.

"Well, if you could hypothetically have a crush on a guy, even if you never have, then you are bisexual."

I've heard this from women once or twice, but never from men.

No, but I think the kids are doing this. Too many young people seem to be honestly confused what "sexual attraction" is or feels like because of lack of experience. It's not theoretical.

Kids, indeed. I once had this very thought, that I was bisexual because I wouldn't rule out the possibility of dating either sex. Of course, at the time I was all of eight years old.

Young adults and teenagers living increasingly online and having less sex than prior generations doubtless contributes to this prolongation of sexual naivete.
