Word of the Gay: "Gillette Blade"

A "gillette blade" is a term used for bisexuals, based on the popular double edged shaving razor.

being bisexual... i'm not sure I like this.
Can't we get over the whole... Gay or Straight is ok, but being bi is somehow deviant?

I'll second that. Being bi is just as normal as any of the other orientations.

Hooray!! Some common sense!

I don't get what you're upset about. They often have words for gay men and lesbians as word of the gay too.

I suppose the word could be used in either context. It could be said that a bisexual can go with you, but than leave you "cut you" so to speak. Or it can just be said they are like a gillette blade, able to go both ways. I suppose it depends who is using the word and in what way.
