Would there still be tension sexually if everyone went Gay or bisexual?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26798points) September 4th, 2010

If at 9:00am everyone was either Gay or bisexual would that cause a unified front on sexuality or, would there still be two parties at different ends of the issue?

. People would branch off and still call themselves something different. I would think. There would be gay and semi gay. Or semi bisexual and bisexual.

Sexual tension exists because two people are attracted to each other yet do not act upon the impulse. It has nothing to do with male/female. So yeah, sexual tension will still exist as long as people deny their mutual urges to fuck.

Perhaps division would have been a better suited word.

@Hypocrisy_Central Did I misunderstood the question?

@Frenchfry No it was I guess so that future people will get the just of the question and not think it mere emotion but more like would there be seperate camps if every one was Gay and bisexual or would there be sexual identity bliss, more or less? @bippee seem to be slightly off the jist of the question, semantics I guess.

Ah, had you worded the q that way I would have gotten it!

In that case, there would still be sexual identity issues. I think there would be a division between the gays vs. bisexuals. Probably in-fighting similar to athiests & agnostics. “Why don’t you get off the fence and just commit?” The gays would think they are better because they picked the same sex and the bisexuals think they have it better since they are choosing to sleep with either sex. I think there will always be some sort of divisiveness.

You seem to be assuming that this is a “choice” issue. Do you recall how old you were when you “chose” your current sexual orientation?

I never chose mine; I’ve liked girls since forever. I never “chose” that. I could no more “choose” to be gay or bisexual than I did to become heterosexual. It is what it is.

I am with @bippee on this one. I was always under the impression that sexual tension was totally independent of orientation.

@CyanoticWasp You seem to be assuming that this is a “choice” issue. Do you recall how old you were when you “chose” your current sexual orientation? Diverting of course a moment, there was a time way long ago where I was not so sure, I guess one could say I was in a confused state. However to some it appears to be choice, Anne Heche one of the most famous switch hitters would allude to different thinking. When Cynthia McFadden (I believe) did a special on women in prison it was said that 80% of women who are in prison and know they will be there doing long time have at least one homosexual encounter and many more straight women end up having same sex lovers behind bars. It can be said they chose to be with a woman when they knew being with a man was out of the picture for the next 30 years or closet lesbians are prone to criminality.

But the question was not one of choice, it was to say that everyone became Gay, something in the water, spores in the air, whatever the world cease to have straight people. Would there still be division when there were no more ”different” people sexually? It would seem that it would be one great big happy tent party but would that just shift the division from full Gays against bisexuals and visa versa, that is the real question or gist of it thereof, not choice or not choice.

love to hate. I don’t think you have to eat rod or munch carpet to appreciate your own sex. Lovers will rule the world… day.
