Did Bisexuality Exist Before the Word Was Invented?

The question of the week is quite compelling:

#BiVisibility Community Question: Did #bisexuality exist before the word #bisexual was invented in the 1800s?

So far, more than 60 people liked and shared and commented on the question. More than 1,000 people read the post.

Here is a sampling of what they said:

Mark Lees If we live in Truth, there is no need to concern Ourselves with others actions. We attract what we radiate

Kris Stone Sexually available, and down for a threesome actually tend to be the message….not always, but often enough. I have decided that if I ever date another man again, he would have to either be bi, or very open minded and not thinking that I am polyamourous or sexually perverted.

Jan Stevenson If you’re looking say “I’m open to possibilities”, if you aren’t you have a partner. Anyone who matters will understand and it won’t bother them, anyone who’s really bothered doesn’t matter very much.
