Isn’t bisexuality just a stop on the way to identifying as gay or lesbian?
Absolutely not! That narrative may be common to the personal experience of many gays and lesbians, but that hardly changes the nature of bisexuality itself. The fact is, many bisexuals identify for a while as gay or lesbian before they settle on a bisexual identity. It would be just as valid to say that gay and lesbian are temporary identities on the way to a permanent bisexual identity. Obviously, neither statement is accurate or fair.
