Meditations on Sexuality, Part I

"Wake up, it's 2000! The new millennium won't be about sexual labels, it will be about sexual expression. It won't matter if you're sleeping with men or women. It will be about sleeping with individuals."
-Samantha Jones
Preach, sister! Sexuality is a thoroughly fluid entity. A friend and I were discussing sexual labels last night and he questioned my self-given label of gay. “I thought you were also sexually attracted to women?” he asked. The truth is that I definitely can be attracted to women, but I’m also attracted to men. Does that make me bisexual? Perhaps. Does it make me straight? Sure. Am I gay? Totally. To oversimplify it, I identify as gay because I find myself primarily attracted to men - I guess you could say I’m homoflexible. All these labels, all these people, and so little time to truly dive into it all to determine the origins of sexuality. Let’s just enjoy each others’ company - man, woman, intersex, gay, straight, bisexual, pansexual… we’re all just sexy, sexual individuals.
