It doesn't sound like you have any valid reason on which this opinion is based on. Anecdotal evidence is not a good standard and thus doesn't bode well in arguments.

You still haven't substantiated why a bisexual person should choose to be with one sex or the other for their entire life time. You claim that it would be easier due to acceptance if they chose to be with one sex or the other. This, however is poor reasoning. It means that social norms and pressures should influence one's sexuality. You'd basically be advocating for sexuality being up for popular vote.

There are studies that support the notion of bisexuals being no less faithful and honest than their gay/straight fellow man. Dr. Diamond conducted a 10 year study and found that 89% of the bisexual participants remained in a faithful, monogamous relationship. Furthermore, there are studies that suggest that bisexuals who choose not to be monogamous tend to do so by entering into open type relationships. So even if they choose not be monogamous, it is often with the consent of their partner.

Can you offer any reasoned argument why a person who is objectively attracted to both sexes should choose one or the other when there seems to be no true advantage to it.

that paragraph still didn't provide any good reason why they should choose. it was all unsupported opinion on your part. if they want to keep their options open what reason do you have that they shouldn't?

a bisexual coming out of the closer isn't a big deal because there barely any struggle. they can choose if they needed to survive anyway. they would still be happy and I guess only bisexuals get bisexuals as well as open minded people but from what I see the majority have no interest in that.
not only that there's been a huge sprawl of fake bisexuals meaning some say there bisexual because they don't want to be completley gay, or there curious, or they just wantto be bisexual for the fun of it. I noticed that when I talk to a lot of lesbians about bisexual most don't even waste there time with them.

they could choose to only date one sex. why would they? what benefit would it be to them or to anyone else?

Lol bisexuals do have a choice and I said there up for certain things at certain tines because I've had conversations with bisexuals about this and they mentioned of course there up for certain things for certain times. Bisexuals might not have a choice to be attracted to both sexes but they can still choose. It doesn't make sense that they can't. A homosexual can't choose to be straight can only be gay. A straight can't choose to be homosexual but can only be straight. A bisexual can be straight and homosexual lol...

This is absurd. It is an argument based on bias and ignorance.

Bisexual simply means being sexually attracted to both male and females. So a bisexual person only has to choose which person they want to be in a relationship with, not their sex. It's ludicrous to suggest that someone who is attracted to both must make a choice about which sex to date ad infinitum. If anything, bisexuality is the most sincerely humanist expression of sexuality as it simply relies on the personality, not the sex in order to form a relationship.

Bisexuality is also about as much of a choice as homosexuality, heterosexuality, and asexuality. It isn't a choice whether or not to be attracted to both sexes; one either is or isn't. You also seem to be insinuating that Bisexuals are incapable of committing to a relationship with just one partner when you say: "real bisexuals want some things at certain times and days..." This is an affront to their humanity and a complete misunderstanding of sexuality vs relationships. This illustrates your prejudice on the subject quite easily and undremines any credibility you may have had on the subject. I would therefore argue, that based on your ignorance of the subject, your inability to produce any sources which back your claims, and your obvious prejudice that your opinion on this subject has about as much value as a roach's view on existentialism.

if you have a choice and willingly will go through bs. I don't know. that's stupid to me. Only reason why bisexuality is not seen as real is because they have a choice a literal a choice. Homosexuals don't. There homosexuals. plus makes ppl who are more direct with what they want less comfortable because real bisexuals want some things at certain times and days and now a days everyone is so sensitive and insecure. what's the whole point of going through all that when it does no good.

This is how I see it. There is a basket of bananas and a basket of pears. They both taste so good but you have to choose :/ Bisexuals don't have it as hard as homosexuals at all because they don't have to force themselves on a gender to not go through bullshit. but they willingly will. what the hell... bisexuals acknowledge they like the opposite sex yet they struggle coming out of the closet. Is it even necessary in the first place. Go to a dating site. put your sexuality as bisexual. Barely anyone will be interested because it's way less direct. barely. Your not sure what there feeling up for today or tomorrow and that's uncomfortable for most.

So because you feel they have a choice, you think bisexuals should change who they are? That sounds pretty arrogant. I want you to demonstrate that they do have a choice. Change your sexuality. If you can do that, you might have a starting point for your argument. You still will struggle to justify telling people who to be attracted to, but at least you wouldn't be a hypocrite and an idiot.

Bisexuality is a struggle because not many people want someone who's bisexual. Homosexuals and Heterosexuals.
