    For the “Can’t men be sexually fluid too?” Is a bit insulting for a couple of reasons. First people who question that are ones who dismiss bisexual and other queer identified men, as well the idea that men CAN in fact be sexually fluid as much as there are women. One just has to look at the examples of Josh Hutcherson and British director Stephen Daldry. But the other reason why it’s insulting is the idea that “most” women are like that. Of course that’s not true. And now they are trying to prove that “most” men are like that as well. I think SOME people can be fluid, but for most people that’s just not true. And I can imagine LOTS of women (including lesbians) find that idea to be very offensive, and annoyed at how people will not take their sexuality seriously and think that it’s not something they are hard-wired as, when they really are. And I know plenty of queer women who really are frustrated by it.
