This gives me hope.

“And some research suggests that acceptance of both male and female sexual fluidity may increase with younger generations: According to Cornell University psychologist Ritch Savin-Williams more teenagers and young adults are avoiding such labels as “gay,” “lesbian” or “bisexual” altogether or are inventing new descriptions, such as “mostly straight.”

And living life, rather than focusing on labels, is a large part of what sexual fluidity is all about.”

That…is amazing. Exactly what I believe, what I see happening. Yes. This little article is a gold mine for me, especially the reference made in the first paragraph about an Off-Broadway play featuring a gay man who falls for a woman. They don’t name the play unfortunately, but I’ll find it…that’s wonderful. We need it, we need it all. Orientations box us in, and that does nothing but harm us in the end. We are free to love anyone- and whomever you love doesn’t define you, it just doesn’t. Love is love, no matter what.

I will say one thing, though- I disagree with the psychologists in the article who say that men who surf gay porn or are turned on by the idea of sex with another man are just curious or trying to measure their “manhood” against another male. Or just want to “study anatomy.” Seriously? I don’t have a psychology degree, but I’m sorry, that’s ridiculous. Those are the beginnings of awakenings. It’s an entire gender coming to terms with their sexual flexibility. Those little moments where that happens is where my heart belongs- that’s what I want to be a part of. I want to help those along.

I do, however, agree that sexual fluidity in females is more accepted, but I think that may have to do with the sexualization of women in general. Not entirely sure, going to have to look into that as well.

Articles like this give me hope.
