A 2007 report said that 14.4% of young US women identified themselves as bisexual/lesbian, with 5.6% of the men identifying as gay or bisexual.

In 2007, an article in the 'Health' section of The New York Times stated that "1.5 percent of American women and 1.7 percent of American men identify themselves [as] bisexual.

Seems like it's much much higher than that.

Most bisexual people are simply curious, and would most likely put "straight" on any kind of a survey.

I know about three folks who openly admitted that they're bisexual.

Statistics aside, maybe it's a lot more common than most think.

I find that hard to believe considering how many bisexuals I've come across.
I rarely put too much stock in surveys anyway. The demographic used is usually shit.

People do not choose to define themselves as bisexual often, they usually define themselves by what gender of attraction they lean towards.

A bisexuals opinion.

Not really all that rare. Sure their are more straight people than lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. There are though, certainly a lot more than said statistics done back in 2007.

I mean, I myself am bisexual and I know a lot of gay/bisexual individuals on this site.

Feel special about what? The fact you like both penises and vaginas, is not some kind of achievement. Although I think the percentage is certainly higher than 1,5%/1.7%.

But when you're bisexual, it's easy to get under the impression that it's just curiosity, especially if your preference happens to lean more toward the opposite sex. Or in the opposite case, if your preference happens to lean more toward the same sex, it's easy to get under the impression that you're fully gay. Both of these impressions are extra likely if the person isn't sexually experienced enough to have found out first hand what they like or don't like.

If you're fully gay or straight, it's easy to figure out whether or not you're a fan of dick, but bisexuality can be confusing due to the fact that your attraction to each gender isn't necessarily equal.

You are a hybrid of intelligent and troll.

I like that.

None straight people are a lot more common than that. They likely just refuse to say it due to it not being cool or some shit.

That's how many people IDENTIFY themselves as bisexual. There's probably hundreds of thousands of people that didn't identify themselves as bi yet.
