Most of you probably view bisexuality as a separate sexual orientation, but some scientists and people in society see it as just a phase, a time to experiment with sexual freedom and to have fun. Bisexual women are stereotyped as people who fear commitment, are promiscuous, or don't want to admit that they are lesbians.
These insulting assumptions are made about bisexuals because there are hardly any scientific studies done about it, until now.
A new study shows that bisexuality isn't a phase at all — it's a lifelong sexual orientation just as heterosexuality and homosexuality are. The new findings also suggest that the distinction between lesbianism and bisexuality is a matter of degree rather than a kind of orientation.
There are a lot of social pressures among gays and lesbians, but bisexuals often have even greater hurdles. Hopefully with more studies like these, people will have a better understanding about bisexuality, which will in turn decrease prejudices.
