For the longest time sexual orientation has been the subject of stereotypical views/judgment and this has led to the marginalization of many. However one of the great reforms of the 21st century is the freedom of being able to be romantically involved with whoever one desires to pursue. Freedom of speech also means that those previously marginalized can speak out against ill treatment and abuse. This is one of the reasons we now have a community group known as LGBTQ(Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer) which when simply explained refers to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender.
The B in LGBTQ stands for bisexual- which is a person who is sexually attracted to both men and women. This has often led to the question whether this select group of people is always promiscuous since they “play for both teams”. Research shows that the desire to have sex with multiple partners points at lack of satisfaction with either one of an individuals relationships or plain old greed. It has absolutely nothing to do with sexual orientation.
However when some people hear the word “bi” they automatically assume two of everything(including relationships). Assumptions and misconceptions will only be cleared up the moment we interact with each other as people regardless of our sexual orientation.
A hetrosexual person is promiscous based on his individual character preferences and when he/she is in love, they are faithful to their partner. The same applies to a Bisexual people. It is therefore not fair to blanket everyone with stereotypical views but rather seek to understand the next person better.
We need to cultivate a culture of being open minded and non judgemental rather than just tolerating one another. This will start happening the more we interact with different people be it in terms of race, nationality and even sexuality.
