Bi Any Other Name: Bisexual People Speak Out

Customer Reviews:

Excellent book!

By vicki "yvl" - May 22, 2000

What I liked most about this was that it presented the personal stories of such an extraordinarily diverse group of people, showing that really there is no "typical" bisexual, and also showing how bisexuality has factored into the lives of different kinds of individuals. One really good point that this book stresses is the duality of our monosexual culture-- the belief that everyone is either gay or straight. Our society leaves no room for the enormous spectrum between the two, since very few people are 100% homo- or heterosexual, and I think the book did a good job of emphasizing this point, and the way bisexuals feel out of place or "invisible" in both the straight and gay communities.

Its approach to defining bisexuality and explaination of what it means to form a strong bisexual identification in society today is extremely adequate. The editors of this text deserve much praise for developing a resource which discusses the discrimination and exclusion of bisexuals from many communities while... read more

An reaaly excellent book to learn more about ourselves.

By A Customer - April 17, 1999

At the beginning i was thinking that i have bought the wrong book, but after i began reading i realize why i feel so out of the straight world and that i also don`t fit into the lesbian world. The testimonials of the people sometimes look like my life.
