"Sometimes I fear that the whole world is queer" : what bisexual theories, identities and representations can still offer queer studies

Ronan, Joseph Anthony January 2015 (has links)
This thesis examines the marginalization of bisexuality in contemporary British culture and in queer theory, and addresses a division in bisexual theory between identity-based and epistemological approaches. It proposes in response a bisexual reading, here termed ‘re/depositioning'. This interdisciplinary approach gives particular focus to the interrogation of bisexual textuality, rather than (only) to bisexuality as a subject of representation. Part I examines ways in which bisexuality is erased and relationships between bisexuality, queer theory and narrative. It then posits a bisexual critical practice as counter to the end-oriented progress narratives of fixed identity and capitalist production, and to the reduction of queer theory to a fixed oppositional stance. Part I also responds to the ‘temporal turn' in queer theory – particularly in the work of Lee Edelman, Jose Esteban Muñoz and Elizabeth Freeman – which critiques ‘straight time'. The thesis advances a bisexual temporality distinct from the conflicting utopian and anti-utopian queer approaches to futurity. Part II of the thesis re/depositions a number of contemporary literary and cultural representations of male bisexuality. A chapter on the staging in The Buddha of Suburbia of adolescent sexuality and pop music repurposes damaging bisexual stereotypes; the denigration of bisexuality as ‘adolescent' gives way, in this analysis, to a productive ‘textual immaturity'. The subsequent chapter reads Morrissey's cultural performance as an embodied critique of heteronormativity which negotiates incompatibilities between radical theory and lived identity. A chapter on Alan Hollinghurst's The Stranger's Child reads that novel as a ‘bisexual camp' text whose narrative structure and unnamed bisexualities critique the rewriting of bisexuality as gay, queer, or immature. A final chapter presents the thesis's conclusions: that critical re-engagement with bisexuality strengthens the arguments of queer theory and offers possibilities for living that resist the reductive imperatives of straight time and heteronormative identity narratives whilst remaining liveable within them.

An ideographic study of bisexuality

Parker, Peter Burns January 1977 (has links)
This research can be seen as being a step towards an answer to the question "what is bisexuality?". Such an aim, however, appears to be a contradiction in terms. Surely we must be assuming an answer by asking the question. How can one ask a question such as “what is bisexuality?", if we have no conception of what the word bisexuality means? Owing to the lack of information in the literature with which to answer the question of this study, it was decided that an in-depth study of one individual would be a most suitable starting point to begin an illumination of the themes which lie in the depths of this complex phenomenon . An in-depth study would hopefully do this without lapsing into the stereo - typed ways of thinking and terminology that could eventuate from a more populous and necessarily more superficial approach (Kotze 1974). Arising out of the prevailing conception of human sexuality as comprising two modes of sexual existence - heterosexuality and homosexuality only, the idea of bisexuality is hardly to be found in the ordinary man's or, for that matter, the psychologist 's, conceptual frameworks. The only extensive work that has been undertaken to date which uncovers, to a certain extent, the nature of human sexuality, is that of Kingsley (1948 and 1953). Although it must be kept in mind that this research is dated, it certainly does indicate that perhaps it would not be unrealistic to begin to reconceptualise our views on man's sexual mode of existence . This thesis presents the case of a man, who, according to our present view, does not exist.

Assessing Lesbians' Beliefs About and Attitudes Toward Bisexual Women: Does Valuing Monogamy Relate?

Cheperka, Ryan Anne 01 January 2009 (has links)
Until recently, there has been a lack of understanding or of inclusion regarding bisexuality in research regarding sexual orientation. Thus, stereotypes, such as bisexual individuals being nonmonogamous, are formed, as are attitudes regarding bisexuals. It was hypothesized that this particular stereotype would moderate the relationship between valuing monogamy and attitudes regarding bisexual women. It was also hypothesized that less of a value of monogamy would directly relate to more positive attitudes about bisexual women. Therefore, 199 lesbians were recruited for this study. Two factors from the Relationship Issues Scale (RIS) were used to assess values of monogamy. A revised version of the Biphobia Scale was used to assess attitudes towards bisexual women. Three single-items were averaged to assess the belief that bisexual women are nonmonogamous. Results did not support either hypothesis. However, overall attitudes towards and experiences with bisexual women were quite positive, and some notable correlations were observed among variables including attitudes about bisexual women and willingness to date bisexual women. Further, about one-quarter of the variance in attitudes toward bisexual women was accounted for by the combination of personal experience with bisexual women, belief that bisexuality is a step in the coming out process, and belief that bisexual women are nonmonogamous. Slightly over one-quarter of the variance in willingness to date a bisexual woman was accounted for by the combination of the belief that bisexual women are nonmonogamous, the belief that bisexuality is a step in the coming out process, attitudes about bisexual women, attitudes regarding monogamy, and age.

Exploring the bisexual alternative: A view from another closet

Morse, Connie, 1952- January 1989 (has links)
Research on bisexuality has been relatively nonexistent. In the recent past bisexuality has been viewed as pathological or as a means of denying either homosexuality or heterosexuality. Sexuality is looked at and studied as a dichotomy, polarizing the sexual experience as either "gay" or "straight". Where is the gray area accounted for in this continuum? In this study, 16 female respondents completed questions pertaining to sexual behavior, fantasy and emotional experience. They were also given the Bem Sex Role Inventory to ascertain the relationship between gender identity and sexual orientation. Other issues addressed concerned demographics, AIDS, counseling, and self-esteem.

Exploring negative attitudes regarding bisexuality

Eccles, Gregory David January 2016 (has links)
The following research report is submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements necessary to obtain the degree of Masters in Community-Based Counselling Psychology in the Faculty of Humanities, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg 2014. / Research focusing on sexual minority groups has historically focused almost exclusively on homosexuality, leaving a relative void in the body of work focusing on bisexuality. While prejudices towards homosexual minorities have been researched extensively, such research either excludes bisexuality, or incorporates it into homosexuality without considering differences between the concepts. This research paper looked to explore factors influencing negative attitudes regarding bisexuality, specifically incorporating familiar and less familiar research variables. Tolerance of ambiguity and social conservatism are both factors with well-established ties to homophobia. While their conceptual link to biphobia would seem obvious, only a limited number of studies have been conducted to connect these factors to attitudes regarding bisexuality, and thus further research examining this trend is warranted. In this study, an attempt was made to build upon the work of Hoang, Holloway, and Mendoza, (2011), who conducted a study examining the effect of bisexual identity congruence on attitudes regarding bisexuality. In addition to tolerance of ambiguity and social conservatism, bisexual identity congruence was also examined as a possible contributor towards attitudes regarding bisexuality. Conducting this examination in tandem with previously correlated values was hypothesized to provide an indication of the relative strength of the effect of bisexual identity congruence on attitudes regarding bisexuality. A survey of 133 mixed heterosexual and non-heterosexual students was conducted, making use of instruments to measure attitudes regarding bisexuality, sexual orientation facets, tolerance of ambiguity and social conservatism. These results were then analysed statistically through correlation and multiple linear regression. The findings of the study indicated a potential positive correlation between increased sexual identity incongruence and decreased biphobia, in contrast to the initially hypothesized opposite trend. Three specific areas of sexual identity congruence appeared to be most influential towards attitudes regarding bisexuality, namely incongruence between sexual identity and emotional preference, sexual behaviour and sexual fantasy. Tolerance of ambiguity and social conservatism both demonstrated significant but weak correlations with aspects of attitudes regarding bisexuality, in line with similar studies linking the two to homophobia and biphobia. Social conservatism was also shown to be the strongest independent contributor towards attitudes regarding bisexuality, with tolerance of ambiguity ranking thereafter. Beyond the original research questions, the data also seemed to demonstrate a tendency for people who have personal experiences with bisexuality to display less negative attitudes regarding bisexuality. Some indication of a racial difference in attitudes regarding bisexuality, as white students were shown to be statistically more likely to hold more positive attitudes towards bisexuality. / GR2017
