Because their orientation is not recognized as valid, they are stereotyped as confused, indecisive, insecure, experimenting, or "just going through a phase".
The association of bisexuality with promiscuity stems from a variety of negative stereotypes targeting bisexuals as mentally or socially unstable people for whom sexual relations only with men, only with women, or only with one person at a time is not enough.
Studies show that bisexuals are often trapped in between the binaries of heterosexuality and homosexuality, creating a form of invalidation around their sexual identity.
This often leads to recognized indicators of mental health issues such as low self-esteem and self-worth.
This causes many members of the gay male community to assume that the very idea that men can be bisexual is homophobic to gay men.Thus the many bisexual individuals with unequal attractions are instead categorized as either homosexual or heterosexual.Others acknowledge the existence of bisexuality in women, but deny that men can be bisexual.Same-gender sexual activity is dismissed as merely a substitute for sex with members of the opposite sex, or as a more accessible source of sexual gratification.Situational homosexuality in sex-segregated environments is presented as an example of this behavior.
