"The world is not black or white to me, but a rich diversity of colors, and it is not either/or, but both/and,"
Comments like this are incredibly insulting to straight people; it's somehow implying that being bisexual makes you a better person because you're more open to experiencing positive things with less discrimination in choosing a partner. A good portion of pansexuals that I've known have said something like "I love everyone regardless of their gender" in explaining themselves--which is equally as self-aggrandizing as that comment. Sexual orientation is not about love, love can exist without sexual orientation, it's about what you want to have sex with. And being open to having sex with more things does not make you a better person: by that logic, heavily drunken and seriously confused Frat Boys would be the second coming of the Buddha.
You can't argue that people shouldn't be treated differently because of their sexual orientation then in the same breath make a case on how your sexual orientation gives you advantages. It's a conflict; the entire article seems self-destructive in that fashion, and incredibly bent on making bisexuals seem like victims they are not. The best examples they could come up with is a soft ball team being stripped of their trophy and controversial research that calls into question bisexuality in men?
The first bit, okay, that shouldn't have happened, but the research thing... You can't be angry at facts. Facts do not victimize. If there was a problem with the research, sure, point it out, especially if it was fabricated or ideologically motivated, but even so, one small issue like that doesn't constitute being especially repressed. If anything, bisexuals have it far easier than homosexuals; if you're bisexual you have the choice of pursuing a relationship that falls in line with religious and social norms, thus easily skirting any sort of social judgment from other people. Gays are not so lucky; if they want to have any relationship at all, they have to be with someone of the same sex.
I've heard an incredible amount of preaching against homosexuality, but absolutely none against bisexuality. If such a tension truly does not exist, I've seen no evidence of it in my personal life, the mountain of articles I read every day, and in regularly being exposed to homosexuals and bisexuals. In general, I still think being bisexual is far more acceptable socially, and I can give some examples (but nothing solid to prove my case).
Here's one area where it is: in the Catholic Church it is not considered a sin to be homosexual, but only to have sexual relations out of wedlock. You can't marry someone of the same sex according to their definition of marriage, so gay sex is always a sin. However, if you're bisexual, you can in fact still marry, engage in sexual fulfillment, and be bisexual without facing excommunication or technically sinning.
