    exposure. The 90's was still a bad time for people hiding their HIV status and having unprotected sex. Some people did it intentionally. And bisexual men were viewed as a higher risk group, so it could easily have been fear of being infected.

    Sorry being honest cost you, that sucks, (and not the good kind).

      There was no indication that I would act on those feelings. The issue was the feelings themselves, I think. Perhaps she thought if I had some level of attraction toward men, that I must really be gay. I might be less than 1 on the Kinsey scale, but she was absolutely a 0.

        feelings of femininity. I had a friend in college who dated a guy who had been involved with men and was open about it. I remember her wondering why he was attracted to her, if she had some masculine aspects that drew him. Ended up not being a big deal, but I clearly remember her questioning her own attractiveness when he told her.
