Response to liberal_at_heart (Reply #33)

36. I don't recal saying "a lot of people," but rather "some."

This is from the studies I have read and my own experiences in college. Of course, these things can change. But, yes, there are some who claim to be bi (or gay/lesbian) as part of being "trendy" and "hip." How common is it? I don't really know, but I have seen it. I have also seen gay and lesbians struggle with their sexual orientation only to realize they aren't homosexual, but bisexual. Sex and sexuality is still somewhat taboo in our culture, despite the overt sexualization we see everywhere. Actual discussions about the implications and realities of sex and sexual orientation still seem to have that "yuck" factor with many people.
