I got to try my hand at a little humor this week. I don’t know if I’m funny, but I did enjoy the writing.
My other blog this week was an opportunity to take a common misconception and share a little common sense. I’ve personally been involved with a bisexual man and it was a pretty good relationship. Our needs didn’t meet, and that happens sometimes, there is no harm in that. I never feared though that his sexuality would cause him to step out on me.
I trusted in the person that he was, and his commitment to who WE were, and because of that I didn’t live in fear that when I was out of sight he would pursue other men.
That is an outlook that so many women – especially Black women – seem unable to embrace and that is painful to me.

That is the type of risky sexual behavior that is most likely to expose you to HIV, not a responsible bisexual partner who uses safer sex practices.
That is in part why I wrote this piece
