Why does that statement sound like part of after school special?
I'm not sure if she thinks this will help his campaign? They support equal marriage and so on, which is great. But her saying she "was a lesbian" and now isn't, pretty much does suggest it's something you can switch on and off. If she said "I thought I was a lesbian and turned out to be bisexual"- especially considering that she had slept with men in college as well - that would be a different story.
Was there pressure for bisexuals to just be full on lesbians in the 70s? Was it a feminism thing?
Don't blame feminists for this stupidity. It is heterosexual society that pushes people to be straight, or at least "bisexual." Political careers make one straight as well.
She's a lesbian first. Screwing men is secondary to her natural desires.

I'd rather vote for the husband of an ex-lesbian than the one who's out and will take budget revenge on any council member who doesn't agree with her. See next post.
This thread is full of apologetic "I didn't have a choice, I would switch it off if I could" equality fakes.
[quote]Gay men marry women, have kids and don't change their orientation.
If that's true, then gay-for-pay is certainly real.
The DeBlasios live in Park Slope, New York's largest lesbian community. When he hits the campaign trail spending hours meeting and greeting voters, Chrilane will have no problem finding someone to spend time with.
Bisexuals who purposely mis-label themselves as gay/lesbian hurt gay rights because when they enter into opposite-sex relationships they perpetuate the myth that homosexuality is some sort of choice.
It's not rocket science, if you are bisexual then come out as bi. And please, none of this bullshit about how hard it is to come out as bi because:
1 - Everyone would use the excuse of 'it's hard' and never come out as gay/bi
2 - Most gay (and str8 people for that matter) don't give a shit if you are bi.
3 - There are millions of bisexuals (probably way more that homosexuals) so even if you were rejected by the straight and gay community (which I don't believe would happen anyway) there is a built-in bisexual community to turn to.
All this is just to say, if you are bi then say that. Don't say you are gay and then change the script later on. It just makes it more difficult for those of us that actually are gay/lesbian.
Gay men = 100% born this way.
Les/bi = 1/4 born this way? 3/4 by choice?
I just don't "bi". Do you sometimes reach out for a tittie or a cock- and it's not there? Weird.
She's fug and masculine like Jada Pinkett. I love how she says "I wasn't a typical Bulldagger, I could choose to be gay or not because of my looks". Please bitch.
She pings off the chart and looks very masculine.
And they met in that shit Dinkins administration. I hope people do not vote for this jerk.
R17, nice speech but most gay men deny there is even such a thing as bisexual. According to them, bisexual men are gays in denial.
The gay community needs to stop the discrimination against bisexual and pushing the ridiculous notion that bisexuality does not exist. By further denegrading bisexuals the gay community has not helped.
It's obvious now that this woman in bisexual, but the word "bisexual" is almost disappeared from public discourse on sexual orientation.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
