This past weekend at Nashville Pride Vanessa Carlton followed in the footsteps of female celebs like Lady Gaga, Anna Paquin, and Megan Mullally and came out as bisexual. Congrats! But why is this well-intentioned announcement always made by ladies? Aren’t there any bi guys?
Bisexual women are especially powerful because people don’t really care if a female has fluid sexuality. In fact, most straight guys would actually prefer imagining that Anna Paquin will not only sleep with them, but will bring her best girlfriend over for a three-way. Yes, there is nothing icky about lady-on-lady action. This is not true in the hetro world with male-on-male loving,.
It’s a horrible double standard and it’s one I think we should end. How? Well, we need some famous dudes to come out as bi and be LOUD and PROUD! We know you’re out there, guys. And even if you’re not, can’t you pull a Gaga and just pretend for the sake of the cause? Thanks!
