    23% of young black women now identify as bisexual

    As sociologists who study sexuality, we've noticed how more and more women are reporting that they're bisexual. But in the most recent survey, one subset stood out: 23% of black women in the 18 to 34 age group identified as bisexual – a proportion that's nearly three times higher than it was a decade ago.

    Others have pointed to the shortage of men hypothesis to explore young black women's decisions about relationships and marriage. This too might explain why young black women, in particular, seem more willing to explore bisexuality.

    According to this argument, fewer "marriageable" men create a need for women to consider options beyond heterosexual relationships or marriage. A traditional marriage isn't as necessary as it once was; since women have more educational and economic opportunities, they can afford to be pickier or, possibly, to explore same-sex relationships.

    Another aspect of the hypothesis involves the disproportionately high rates of incarceration of black men in the U.S. It's possible that because black women are, as a group, more likely to live in areas with smaller "pools of marriageable men," they're more open to bisexuality.

    How can a shortage of men lead to more bisexual women if you're born a bisexual? :sas1:

    Something doesn't add up :sas2:

    Nobody's "turning" gay because of a man shortage. People just feel more comfortable coming out in our community because we are more accepting, even though racist media paints us as the most homophobic.

    Dancing together?
    Sleeping in the same bed?

    Nah, that's just those women's degenerate nature. They can turn it around, but they have to see the problem within themselves first. Can't blame anybody else. You wonder why you can't find happiness? Look at yourself.

    Guaranteed if you did that same study on Puerto Rican women the percentage will be over 50.

    Cultural acceptance plays a big part amongst other things.

    Everything to do with current culture and a lot of women get turned out by LESBIANS in high school/college. I talked to this one chick who said she's not really bi, she just let's women eat her out when she doesn't have a dude.

    It's funny I wouldn't be surprised in 50 years where women stop being on this bi shyt and go back to being 100% hetero.
