In honor of Bisexual Awareness Week, we have a topic from QSFer Freddy MacKay:
From a reader perspective, if an author’s character is bi, and actively dates both sexes during a series, but ends up with an opposite sex partner, how would that make you feel? Why?
It’s an interesting question – whatever your orientation, there’s a natural desire to see things work out the way you hope they would in your own life.
But we also open ourselves up to the experiences of others. As a gay man, I’ve been exposed to heterosexual romance my entire life – and I still cheer when the guy gets the girl.
So why should this be any different?
This could be a bit of a hot-button topic, so I’ll ask in advance for everyone to keep things friendly and civil in this discussion.
