Example text

Klein also follows Stekel in treating bisexuality as a combination or co-existence of heterosexuality and homosexuality— not of maleness and femaleness, or masculinity and femininity. Most bisexual theorists and commentators since Klein have followed suit, although many sexologists and psychologists of the day, such as Wolff (1977), continued to be ambiguous on this issue. The continuum model of sexuality which Klein invokes can also be traced back to Klein’s conceptual forebears, in this case to Kinsey.

KINSEY As previously pointed out, it is rather unfortunate that the word bisexual should have been chosen to describe this intermediate group. The term is used as a substantive, designating individuals—persons; and the root meaning of the word and the way in which it is usually used imply that these persons have both masculine qualities and feminine qualities within their single bodies. We have objected to the use of the terms heterosexual and homosexual when used as nouns which stand for individuals.

The world is not to be divided into sheep and goats. Not all things are black nor all things white. It is a fundamental of taxonomy that nature rarely deals with discrete categories. Only the human mind invents categories and tries to force facts into separated pigeon-holes. The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects. The sooner we learn this concerning human sexual behavior the sooner we shall reach a sound understanding of the realities of sex. While emphasizing the continuity of the gradations between exclusively heterosexual and exclusively homosexual histories, it has seemed desirable to develop some sort of classification which could be based on the relative amounts of heterosexual and of homosexual experience or response in each history.
