Who knew Dillion would think of all bi's that way? I'm a bit surprised!

You're right- Dillon is usually far more contemplative and grounded than that. /:)

Well, I think that everyone makes judgement about groups based on what they've experienced personally. Even if logically they know that they only saw one facet of the diamond, subconsciously they'll have a profile worked out in their head. So while Dillion may try to be objective, in the end he had to ask to ease those nagging doubts

...you do realize just how a lot (not all, just a lot) of lesbians and gays view bisexuals?

Yes, which is something I personally disagree with.

Another thing that a lot of lesbians and gays also tend to react the way that Jerzy did- being bi is the pathway to being gay.

Both viewpoints annoy the hell out of me. No, I'm not just 'on the fence', and will eventually come down on one side or the other. No, I'm not a slut who'll do anything that moves and can't be faithful or form meaningful relationships. And it's definitely, definitely not just the gay and lesbian community who sees bisexuals that way, either. I've run across equal portions of gays, lesbians, and straight people who think exactly the same things.

True. Unfortunately, we live in a binary society where everything MUST be either/or.

that reminds me how many Afro-Americans get mad when children born in the USA from Dominican Republic parents see themselves as Latinos

I knew the traitor part. I just didn't think Dillion of all people would think like that. He's friends with Zii! And it was just Matt who cheated on him. He's never seen Zii cheat. I don't know, I just expected better from Dillion. Feels alot like Dangerously Chloe where it's "WTF HAPPENED?!"

Very true, but I'm not sure if Dillon knows that Zii is bisexual.

She certainly made her broad tastes fairly clear to him when she was, say, discussing her first encounter with Sonya. And he's seen her with women, and also rolling in his collection of photos of naked men.

But anyway, I don't think that Dillon has a generic prejudice against bisexuals. He's too shallow to have a generic prejudice against anyone. He just had a bisexual boyfriend cheat on him, and he simplistically worries that repeating any one part of that relationship might lead to a repeat of the rest of it. He's not a bigot, he's just a bit dim - and also fragile in a very camp way, hence the endearing/bloody irritating stammering over a couple of words.
