A matter of balance

The thing is, whenever I go looking at pictures of women in various states of undress I generally balance it out with ones of guys, to reduce the guilt feelings. Does this count as self-outing?

On the one hand, homosexual pornography and imagery does not make me want to vomit, and I've certainly never gone looking for a relationship with a woman. On the other hand, I've never gone looking for a relationship with a man either... plus it is possible to not be interested in a relationship whether you're one thing or another, and if I see Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens on a beach it's not him I'm going to be looking at. Erica Campbell, the unofficial porn representative of this site, may do soft girl-girl shoots but she's straight. Richard Chamberlain's worked with women throughout his career but he's gay. And I've said on this blog before that the thought and sight of transsexuals only revolts me if they're ugly (less Barbie Woods, more James Woods).

I think The Onion's Dan Savage summed up my POV perfectly when he noted that men who like T-girls are definitely not straight, but not gay either. It's all mixed up, really. Like life. So if this counts as outing myself as sort of bisexual, then so be it.

But if I see Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake it still won't be him I want to have sex with.

And I ask the world why being bisexual is so bad?

But good on you for having the courage to sort ofspeak out.
