The one thing that is sort of sneered at and not really believed is bisexuality. Any bisexual man is just seen as a closeted gay man. That shows how narrow-minded people are.

You've got to ask! Asking is, in my opinion, the world's most powerful - and neglected - secret to success and happiness.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
