I have serious covers but they're uninteresting.
If Liz still has me doing Lady Gaga on acoustic guitar though you can listen to that <.< I'll ask
I had a lot of fun playing dark nasty metal for you guys in honor of Easter. I'll post a few bands here soon.
@wanderlust: so what qualifies a straight guy? How straight does he have to be before you're like "eww?"
If this is really all you have then you are going to be in a lot of trouble, buddy :/
You should try posting your assignment to Stack Overflow and tagging it with C++ and Homework.
Okay, now that it's over --
did anyone read only the capital letters?
The misconception that bisexuality implies a perfectly equal attraction to both males and females is common.
Consider, if you will, the Kinsey Scale. The Kinsey Institute has posited that sexuality varies by degrees from perfectly attracted to the same sex to perfectly attracted to the opposite sex, and that there are varying degrees of more of this or that in between.
Several LGBT advocates dislike or disagree with the Kinsey scale in that it does not account for intensity of sexual attraction (ignoring asexual or demisexual people) nor does it account for attraction to people who do not fit the gender binary standard, which is considered by some to be a sexual orientation rather than a paraphilia. However, the Kinsey scale well illustrates the idea of fluid sexuality separate from a public identification as "straight" or "gay."
Some further information may be found here at the Wikipedia article on bisexual erasure.
Both gay and straight people who engage in bisexual erasure may claim that bisexuals are actually closeted homosexual people who wish to appear heterosexual, or conversely that bisexuals are heterosexuals who are experimenting with their sexuality.
A common manifestation of bisexual erasure is a tendency for bisexuals to be referred to as heterosexual when they are intimately involved with people of the opposite sex, and to be labeled as homosexual when they are involved with people of the same sex.
Me personally, I'm attracted to whoever I'm attracted to, and that's that. I really don't feel a need to slap a qualifier on it outside of situations where someone has made an assumption that I'm straight or gay.
Edit: To address @InvisibleRainbow's hypothesis about being sexually attracted to both genders but not willing to date both -- maybe that wouldn't be the case in a world that was truly more tolerant. Same-sex attraction and same-sex lifestyle are still definitively otherized.
There are people here who believe that homosexuality is contrary to God's law, and that the unrighteousness of homosexuals puts the favor of God for America at risk, and that the US will be punished like Sodom and Gomorrah for the sins of same-sex love. Being affectionate with another man in the American Southeast would severely negatively impact one's social standing, and I understand why, especially in this area, gay culture is sometimes unfortunately as secretive as any criminal culture is.
Yay for tiramisu and cheesecake, two of my absolute favorites.
The best answer to making this forum go faster is to post more, duh.
Quit thinking your opinion isn't valuable!
