bi now, gay later

Will Anyone Ever Believe Real World DC‘s Mike Manning Is Bi?

SOUNDBITES — “Yes, I am more attracted to guys. If I was standing in a room of attractive males and attractive females, I’d probably take a boy home, or I’d pay more attention to the guys. But I’ve talked to my gay guy friends who have never been with a girl or who have been with a girl once or twice, and I know I’m more attracted to a female than a gay man would be. I am aroused by naked girls, and they’re not. For whatever reason — my genes, my makeup, my hormones, whatever you want to blame it on — God made me attracted to both sexes. That’s just how it is. I’m more attracted to guys, and I’ll admit that. I’ll admit that to you in an interview, and I’ll admit that on national television. I don’t know where people get the impression that I’m too insecure to admit that I’m gay.” —Real World DC‘s Mike Manning, insisting, dammit, that he’s actually bi (via)
