There is no actual definition of where bi-curious behavior begins and ends, and research is just as unhelpful on this subject.

Historically, traditional Chinese medicine thought that bisexuality helped balance the yin and yang energies within the body, Freud reckoned that everyone is bisexual to an extent, and Tantra believes we are all inherently bisexual.

There are now more open ideas that bisexuality is a natural part of us, but where this acceptance takes us is dependent on many factors — some of which are completely out of our control.

When I’m out at a queer club covered in glitter and making out with Lauren, the lesbian I’m seeing, society assumes I’m a femme lesbian.

While I enjoy dating people like David and people like Lauren, both experiences often include bi erasure, or society’s desire to categorize me as either straight or gay. If you’re dating a bisexual woman, you can help her feel close to her identity by encouraging her to stay involved in the bi community and not making the mistake of assuming she’s straight or gay now based upon your own orientation. No, she's not going to cheat on you just because she's bisexual. So many people act like bisexuality is this weigh station between gay and straight, but it's not. Because I don't just date one gender, people act like I'm attracted to every single person in every room, but in reality, I am usually attracted to zero people in most rooms. If she ends up with one gender, that doesn't mean she's not still attracted to multiple genders. She married someone she loves, who happens to be one particular gender.7. A man on Tinder said this to me recently when I mistakenly swiped right (it was because he had a cute dog). His first message to me read, “I have a theory that all women are bisexual.” Nice theory, douche nozzle, but I’m on here to get laid, not have my orientation incorrectly mansplained.

There is now a more modern and in-depth scale called the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid.

There is very little conclusive research on this topic, but a survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that nearly 6.9 million American women said they had a girl-girl sexual experience and 2.7 million said their experience was in the last year.

Sadly, she's faced these kinds of things before with other partners and is really worried that you might be the same as all the other assholes. She doesn't have a specific percentage of how gay she is and how straight she is. She can also be attracted to trans/non-binary/and gender fluid folks.

Seriously, why do you want her to make sexuality pie charts anyway, weirdo? Because of the “bi” in “bisexual,” it’s often incorrectly assumed that bi women are only attracted to cis people.

Yeah, it's just as weird for you to do that to a bisexual woman.2.

You wouldn't keep asking a straight woman you were dating if she was "really" straight, right?

She may have only had serious relationships with one gender and not another, but that doesn't mean she's more into one gender or another.
