Summary: BisexualFish.com declares that the site is dedicated to bisexual individuals only, and will not allow gays and lesbians to be on it.
Sex same marriage was legalized in the US nationwide a month ago. Gay and lesbian marriage is now officially admitted and protected by the US constitution.
However, while the masses begin to accept gays and lesbians, the situation gets somehow different on one dating website.
Recently, BisexualFish.com, the prestigious bisexual dating site, declared that the site is dedicated to bisexual individuals only, and will not allow gays and lesbians to be on it.
"We want to reiterate that our service is only for people who are attracted to both men and women," said Marshall, founder of BisexualFish.com
"We just want to provide a place where everyone has the same orientation. Common interest is very important when it comes to dating, more important for the bisexual crowd. It would be a very unpleasant experience when you come across someone on the site you want to say hi to but she replies 'sorry, I'm not interested in dudes'."
"This isn't about discrimination at all. As part of the LGBT community, we certainly know what it's like to be prejudiced and no one wants feeling." Marshall added,
"However, we want to create a more dedicated platform for our members. I'm sure there are services that are for gay and lesbian only, where gay and lesbian will have a much bigger chance to meet that one."
Unlike any other dating sites, BisexualFish.com doesn't allow its members to select their "orientation". The only option is for "bisexuals" to meet "bisexuals", which means if you're a member, you could only be bisexual. However, Marshall mentioned another term which sounds a little bit vague, "bi-curious". "There are people who are curious about bisexuality. They might be uncertain about their sexuality thus can't identify themselves as 'bisexuals', but as long as they're interested in both men and women, I don't see why we shouldn't give them a big welcome."
According to Marshall, any profile that claims to be homosexual will be deleted.
"We will notify the member that BisexualFish.com isn't a gay or lesbian dating site when we delete their profiles. We wish them all the best on other gay or lesbian dating sites." said Marshall.
BisexualFish.com was started over 5 years ago with the goal of providing a safe, private dating platform for bisexual individuals.
With over half million active members at the moment, it is the largest online dating website for bisexuals.
