Astute and Faithful Reader, Jean, has sent another great subject for discussion via another article in The Guardian. It asks why Straight, White Males are allowed to engage in sex with other men and still declare their Straight-ness with impunity. Of course, there's no mention made of the type of contact: Was it receiving only?
Was it mutual?
Was it, perhaps they were just in the same room for a group jack off - something many men do but won't admit to.
Or did it go further
Nor was there a mention of often it takes place. Then, there is the mention of "culture" - that men of color must hide it, keep it on the down low, as it's referred to.
One reply to the piece put it well: " 'I think the more interesting question is "Why are so many bisexual men self-identifying as straight?.' "
IMO, the answer to that is Bisexuality in men is still not accepted (though straight men love to watch two women getting it on). M/M sex, no matter how rare a guy does it or how he does it, still gets labeled Gay by general society. Even a large portion of the LG(B)T community denies bisexuality exists.
Yet, as Kinsey reported and proved with the development of the Bell Curve that the vast majority of humanity is indeed Bisexual. And as Faithful Reader, Rick, reminded us of the old saying, "Women need a reason, men just need a place." Otherwise how could the term "Gay for Pay" exist?
