Here’s a comment an older post got recently, which I thought was worthy to be a post in itself. It says something about how people see bisexuals: “Everyone says bi-men have (or want) the best of both worlds. But in fact we have the best of neither world.” Makes sense? What do you think? Read on for the full text:
First I want to apologize because Iâ€™m a foreigner in your wonderful country who hasnâ€™t yet mastered Tagalog. So I canâ€™t understand all of the original post. But Iâ€™m an older married guy and Iâ€™ve had many younger Pinoy bfs. The problem is most have seen me as a bank rather than a serious partner. My wife (who is also foreign) was very supportive when I came out to her, but that turned when she realised I could love another man. Weâ€™re separated now, although not yet divorced. Weâ€™re still good friends and I still send most of my salary to my kids (My wifeâ€™s salary isnâ€™t enough to cover all the bills). Most bisexual guys eventually become totally gay (statistics state 90%). Now I have a house in the Philippines and I have a bf who is totally devoted to me. Itâ€™s early days in our relationship but heâ€™s so mabait I really think heâ€™s the one. I decided to move to the Philippines because Iâ€™ve worked with Pinoys for so long I understand much of your culture, I have a lot of friends in Pinas, and I have a severe weakness for Asian men.
But the effect on my family? My wife doesnâ€™t want to meet another man because she canâ€™t trust men after me. My kids love me but donâ€™t want to visit the Philippines or see me with a bf. So yes, you can say I am selfish. But for you guys who are totally straight, or totally gay, from the very start, itâ€™s not as cut and dried as that when you are bi. Everyone says bi-men have (or want) the best of both worlds. But in fact we have the best of neither world. Iâ€™m not after sympathy with this post. I just want you guys condemning Mike to wait until youâ€™re in a similar situation before you drop the axe.[-Nico]
