Ex-gay stories flourish when bisexuality is ignored

faithfully lgbt

Eliel Cruz | Apr 21, 2015 | 

The upcoming Supreme Court arguments on same-sex marriage have prompted a flood of friend-of-the court briefs supporting or opposing the right to marry for gays and lesbians.

Scarcely mentioned: The lives and rights of bisexual people.
This is particularly apparent in an amicus brief was filed by a group called “same-sex attracted men and their wives” asking SCOTUS to deny marriage equality.

The group claims to not have gone through any formal conversion therapy but that they have chosen man-woman marriage unions due to their traditional Christian beliefs.

These men who are cited in the amicus brief have compelling stories. Some claim to have had successful marriages for over thirty years. Others have fairly new relationships. Their stories alone are unique and deserve to be told.

But their unique narratives cannot be used to deny civil rights to others.

There’s an underlying issue with these stories: If traditionalist Christians understood that sexuality wasn’t binary, that it isn’t just straight or gay, their ex-gay “success” stories” would fall flat.
