Whether you’re at a coffee shop or a hotel, people will be there to hear any cries of distress.We’re too scared to swing the door all the way open with a fabulous "We're here!" But unfortunately for my ex as well as for all the other bisexual men and women out there, the straight and gay people who use a bisexual identity as a "halfway house" contribute to the widespread negative notion that anyone who identifies as bi is actually a flimsy, half-hearted gay man or lesbian.
