At Least You'd Have Something In Common

I know a gameshow isn't the place to go looking for a shining example of humanity, but still, it really bugs me that so many women on the Game Show Network game Baggage seem to have a phobia against bi-sexual men :/

That show is a guilty pleasure of mine. For those who don't know it, it's a dating show in which three people vie for a date with a man or a woman by revealing more and more uncomfortable secrets about themselves.

I've seen some really good-looking, basically attractive people passed over for some very foolish reasons (like when one girl said she wouldn't date a man because he prays for two hours a day.) But what bothers me the most is when a woman gets a whiff that a man is anything but 100% heterosexual and freaks. On an episode tonight, there was this incredibly hot, really cute and funny guy who (okay, I probably would have rooted for regardless - he's a LOTR fan who loves Europe! - but still) was an easy pick against a guy who admitted he used vacation tickets that his girlfriend had bought him to go on a trip with another woman. And just because he'd once French-kissed a man, the woman turned him down! It reminds me of an older episode on which a woman chose a man who admitted that he's currently cheating on 5 different people over a sexy, well-spoken sportscaster who admitted to flirting with both men and women :p

I can see how it could be an issue for someone, even if I don't think it would be much of one for me. But a bigger issue than whether a man is honest or dishonest, loyal or untrustworthy? Huh. Not as obvious.
