Illuminating Discussion on the Nature of Sexual Orientation
Michael Glatze, who is depicted in “I am Michael,” has a very illuminating discussion on the nature of sexual orientation with David Pakman below.
I tried to grapple with some of these questions here.
In the interview, Glatze admits that he seemed to be attracted to both sexes when young and that he experienced sexual fluidity. He then blatantly says he thinks everyone is bisexual. I think the logical fallacy he is making (something I’ve seen many others make) is “what seems true for me, must be true for everyone.” Though I do agree that 1. sexual orientation exists on a continuum; 2. some people experience fluidity (but some don’t); and 3. bisexuality, because of its various degrees, tends to be understated.
