    Here is the crux of the gay situation in my mind. Since Homosexuals have rights and benefits the same as "straights" for basically the reason as being they were "Born This Way", should not, in the name of equality, these same rights and benefits be granted to others who were and are "Born This Way", ie -paeodophiles, Kleptomaniacs, Pyromaniacs and many others deemed anti-social in behavior.

    Great article! As a bisexual woman who has been married to a man for 17 years I can certainly relate. We have three children together and on the surface seem pretty "standard issue". I had been in relationships with women before I met him so after we made it official there were the typical reactions of "well, she got through that phase" from straight people and I think it left my gay friends kind of scratching their heads. I actually felt very uncomfortable being lumped into a "straight identity" since I had never really identified that way before. So after over 17 years in a monogamous relationship with my husband I still identify as bisexual and I don't think some people quite know what to do with that information. NO, it doesn't mean that I still sleep with women on the side or that I am not fully and emotionally satisfied in my current relationship. It simply means that I love who I love regardless of gender and I'm glad that this country is finally moving in the direction which supports this for everyone.

    So glad to have this perspective on the platform. It's really interesting that the bi community is not often recognized, and I'm glad the repeal of DOMA is something that you think will help the community.
