Because being bi- is part of what makes us "the cool girls"?

I dunno. It really does seem to work out that way, though...

Because, they have the good sense to realize that girls are teh hawt. What I don't understand is why they still give us guys the time of day (but I'm glad they still do).

See, not all of them are bi, only about half are. The other half of the cool girls hate other girls, and have very few or no female friends.

What happens if a girl falls into both halves, though?

Then they're part of the overlap, which is fairly large at any rate. Then they're in the same situation as guys who don't like or trust girls.

No one suspects the chibi. Besides, at least I'm perfectly innocent... >.>

Here's a good description of the whole thing: http://loserz.scribblekid.org/index.php?id=282

Though I do have to ask what lead to this observation.

I just happened to think to myself, "hmm, I have an awfully large number of female friends who are bisexual. I wonder why..."

There does seem to be an unsually high percentage of women who are bisexual these days. While I can't complain (though I may *squee* a bit), that does become problematic from a logistics standpoint.

Has porn taught you nothing? Bisexual just means that they're so desparate they'll do each other, but if a guy's available they'll double-team him.

That's also a good point. It's just more socially acceptable for a woman to be gay than a man. I could try to guess why, but it would probably be pointless. But whatever the reason, it does mean that more of them are going to be willing to shirk their social expectations.

That does sort of seem to go against what I said in my other reply about them being willing to defy those expectations simply because they're cool, though. It's probably a combination of both, on some level. It's socially unnacceptable, but if it were really, REALLY socially unnaceptable, even the cool people might not be able to shake the idea of it being wrong.

I certainly hope you're not complaining.

I'm not sure whether this would be more appropriate to post in response to Izzy or Liz's comment, because it touches on both, so I think I'll just do it here.

I may very well be biased, but when it comes down to it, I don't think what Izzy said was entirely a joke; the female body is just inherently more beautiful than the male. Not to mention the fact that there's really no man who can understand what makes a woman feel good as well as another woman. Plus, females tend not to have the societal pressure to be macho that we do, so if you're into "cute," you're more likely to find it in a girl than a guy.

Logically, all this seems to go together to make a girl more attractive than just about any guy, if you were somehow able to quantify the factors that make up attraction. Unfortunately, society forcefeeds girls the idea that they HAVE to be with a guy, and anything else is Wrong. So doesn't it make sense that the girls who aren't cool will just buckle under the pressure, and go along with that? I think it would take someone who is, at least in general, fairly cool, to be able to cast all that pressure aside. And since girls are pretty much the logical choice, is there any doubt that they would make it?

Even if you ignore my assertion that girls are inherently more attractive than guys, (like I said, I'm biased) the fact remains that it would take someone with at least some of the makings of a "cool person" to go against what society tells them is right, even if their heart might tell them different. So the girls who are attracted to other girls, but aren't cool, get weeded out and refuse to admit to themselves that they're either bi or gay. (Except possibly while they're drunk.) That, at least, explains why most of the bi girls out there are pretty cool.

Though if my idea that girls are inherently more attractive really is true, it would ALSO serve to explain why so many of the cool girls happen to decide that particular constraint of society is one that deserves to be cast off... >_>

I suppose you also have to deal with the issue of people who cast off the rules of society simply as a form of rebellion, instead of because it truly doesn't apply to them. But that's getting off into another subject entirely.

At least, that's my take on the whole issue. I'm not exactly what you would call an expert, though. Or a girl, which would probably help, too.

Not to mention the fact that there's really no man who can understand what makes a woman feel good as well as another woman.

This is false, as every individual person has traits and quirks that vary from one person to another. Women do not inherently know any better how to please another man than they do women. And after they've learned to please one woman or man, that doesn't mean that what they know will work exactly with another person. At best, people know how to please themselves the best, and even that is sketchy sometimes.

True. That was definitely an overstatement on my part. Obviously, I shouldn't say that there isn't ANY man who understands how to please a woman as much as a woman. I've often said that the golden rule is inneficient, since not everyone wants the same things done unto them, and it's better to go with something more along the lines of "do NOT do unto others as you WOULDN'T have them do unto you," just for example.

Still, they do have an advantage, in that they actually know how what they're doing feels. They might not be all that familiar with everyone else's quirks, but you can't deny that in general women have a better natural understanding of what makes other women tick than men do. They simply have more experience in the matter.

Perhaps it would have been more efficient for me to say that no man could ever really understand what another woman is feeling sexually as well as another woman, as opposed to claiming that women are actually better at "pleasing" other women. If I really wanted to make a broad, sweeping statement, that is, which probably wasn't a very good idea in the first place.

I don't think I quite agree with your assertion about women being "inherently" more beautiful. This is very much a cultural thing, and not all cultures agree; the Greeks, for example, thought the male body was beautiful, while the female's was utilitarian.

(OTOH, they also accepted and widely practiced male bisexuality, so that may support your overall point...)

I think it's just your luck, daxster. All of my XX friends are heterosexual. Not that I'm complaining... as I will mangle from one comedian's standpoint: 'Two women? Why would you want to disappoint two women at once!?'
