Bisexual Films »

Films with bisexual themes, characters, subtext and/or storylines. You know, there really should be way more films being made about bisexual characters because it seems silly to just almost completely ignore that sexuality in film and TV because bisexuality is actually in the majority when it comes to sexualities, or at least that is my theory, and Alfred Kinsey pretty much thought the same thing, so I say it’s probably a valid theory. (I figure I’m a 5.8 to 6 on the Kinsey scale because when a guy looks like a pretty girl, well, sometimes I actually consider that alternative, but then I remember penis and chest hair and it’s no thank you to even pretty boys.) You know what that means don’t you? Shhhh…don’t tell, but heterosexuality isn’t so common after all, but don’t let anyone else know, it’s just our little secret. Dorothy Parker pretty much agreed since she said, “Heterosexuality is not normal, it’s just common.” Smart lady who liked the ladies too. ;) Anyway, sometimes I actually start contemplating bisexuality because there are just days when being a lesbian is one giant pain in the ass because no one ever tells you that you never ever stop coming out of the closet every fucking day of your exhausting lesbian life after you initially come out of the closet, so it’s just fucking exhausting, let me tell you, or maybe you know. Anyway there are days when I just get so tired of trying to determine if it is a safe or dangerous public place to hold my wife’s hand, or worse, there’s some creepy guy, once again, getting his kicks off the lesbian couple holding hands. So basically there are times when I just let go of my wife’s hand when we are in public because we are both too grossed out or frightened or both to deal. And then there are those situations where I have to quickly determine if it is safe to tell this person I have a wife or should I use the word “spouse” or would “partner” keep them from hurting me or maybe I should just pretend I’m a eunuch or even worse with creepy men who you can tell get real dick kicks out of lesbians (gee, you think creepy men in our lesbian lives is a theme for my wife and me?), you just feel ashamed, but do you it anyway to protect yourself, and so you lie, even though you hate lying, and say you have a husband instead. So, I admit it, even though I’m about as gay as a person can get (Hey, it’s been proven since I’ve had people tell me, “Stop being so gay.” Whatever “so gay” is, since I’m still trying to figure that one out.), I just get tired of it all and say, “God dammit, why can’t I like men too and get a husband!” Even though I love my wife to death and think she’s damn sexy to boot, but it’s hard even with her amazing love and sexiness to deal with the bullshit sometimes that comes with being not only gay, but out! Sometimes that closet starts looking real cozy again, let me tell you. Hey, I’m only human. Anyway, I hope to add more movies to this list in time as Hollywood decides maybe bisexuality is an actual existing sexuality that actually most people are to varying degrees and then they make as many movies about bisexual characters as they do comic book movies and hey, I can dream, can’t I, because this list is like the “Elderly Lesbian” film list I have, it’s just quite pathetic, don’t you think?
