    Bi husbands

    I was just looking in the book section and I saw something with a title like this: 'The lives of Gay and Bisexual husbands'.

    Am I the only one who's slighty annoyed by that title? Two recent threads on this forum involve bi men telling their girlfriends. This book doesn't look very helpful. I won't say exactly why because I'd like to know what you think first...

    Question Re: Bi husbands

    What's to be annoyed with? The title lists both lifestyles, it doesn't assume they are the same. It is authored by Dr. Klein after all, and he is the LAST person that would try to say bi is the same is gay.

    While I dont agree with Dr . Klein on everything, he is/was considered to be at the forefront of the whole "Bisexuality does exist" movement. So as a guy who came out to his wife two years into the relationship (six years ago and still happy thank you), I guess I don't see the reason you are annoyed.

    Did you sign in to Amazon and read the exerpts and back cover?

    Re: Bi husbands

    um why are you mad? Tell us more about what this book thing says. Its hard to make a judgment by the title. WHat does it say that it ruins families or something?

    Re: Bi husbands

    Um, my hubby is bi, and that title doesnt bother me (or him) at all, at least it aknowledges bisexuality as seperate to being gay!!! Why does it bother you so much? Is it because its not about gay/bi wives/spouses in general.... in which case I am sure there are other book to deal with that!

    Re: Bi husbands

    I suupose it's my problem really. I just felt that it almost implied that gay/bi husbands are the same when they are very different. i know it doesn't say that but I would have thought that Klein could have come up with a more helpful title (or perhaps a more interesting one lol.)

    Re: Bi husbands

    Having not read the book I would merely assume that Dr. Klein is addressing the issue of men who enter into marital relationships while all the while knowing that they have sexuality issues that they may or may not have shared with their spouse. This is a situation that many men seem to face and I would feel he could offer some insight into the phenomenon. Whether the man is gay or bisexual, he still faces hardships having done so.

    LOL! Keep in mind, Dr. Klein was a research scientist. When it comes to statisitcal analysis, you're really not allowed to have an imagination, let alone use it.

    I was once a psychology student and I remember my psyc stats class (shudders). Nope. No imagination allowed.

    Re: Bi husbands

    I'm not offended at the title since I think that if you are bi/gay and get married you should tell the other person, as it will come out sooner or later.

    Well, I haven't read the book, but I get what you're talking about. A married couple with a bi guy and a married couple with a gay guy present two totally different dynamics and shouldn't be lumped together. One is very workable (and a lot of fun maybe) and one is probably not. I don't know how the book handles this but the title presents the wrong perception in my opinion.

    I too was a psych student (have a degree in it even) and remember well my stats class. It was that prof that gave me the definition I still use for "NORMAL"
    He told us in answer to one of the questions about "what is normal" that there is no such thing as normal when talking about human beings. There are personal and societal norms but no normal. When applied to humans, normal was merely the figment of some screwed up psychiatrist's imagination - probably Freud (he was very anti-Freud)

    As for the book title - I wouldn't judge it on title alone. I've read many books that the title alone would not have made me interested but reading the blogs on the back or the covers piqued my interest. As to whether or not it may appear that Klein was lumping gay & bi together, that would depend on how the title was written - i.e. Gay/Bi or Gay & Bi - both use the same terms but mean totally different. The 1st lumps them together and the 2nd seperates them.
    ____________
    Title: Bisexual and Gay Husbands: Their Stories, Their Words
    Author(s): Fritz Klein, Thomas Schwartz
    ____________

    To me this title indicates that they are seperated. Why though, with all the titles in the book section that are about Gay, Lesbian and Bi, would you pick on just this one? Many of the other books also have them linked in a similar manner.

    Because Klein's book refers to marriage where the difference between gay and bi moves form being important to absolutly crucial.

    Re: Bi husbands

    I thought the book was about two guys in a marital relationship where one was a "5" and one was a "3".

    Bisexual and Gay Husbands: Their Stories, Their Words

    Ok, the joke would have been better if I had said:

    I thought the book was about two guys writing about their marital relationship whose profiles on bisexual.com listed a "4" for the first and a "7" for the other one.
    I'm not heterosexual, I'm not homosexual, I'm justsexual.
