Despite the silly title ("Bisexual Until Graduation: Myth or Reality?"), this ABC news article on bisexuality among young women is surprisingly nuanced. For instance: ,

"... bisexuality is rooted in a culture based on two sexes and doesn't account for transgender, so many don't like the term. It's inherently complicated."

It ain't perfect. (Why no discussion about the focus on "young women" and what this says about gender norms and identity fluidity within heteropatriarchy -- still more stigma for young "men" who don't gender-discriminate in their choice of partners, perhaps?) But still, it's surprisingly thoughtful and complex -- especially for ABC News.
