What I think is that this article is a bunch of hogwash. Part of that is non straight phobics running things which makes people less likely to come out of the closet but even if we say doubled or tripled the amount of queers on the planet that still would be a small fraction of the population. So almost precisely because of that unresolved biphobia, I find that saying I am bisexual is in its own way still a subversive and normative-challenging act.

If ones focus is outward, caring about how others feel more than ourselves, then love is possible.
There is a difference between being pan and being bi. My advice to everyone on this issue is to stop this focus on the desire-related differences between bisexuality and pansexuality: none can be defined in any way that can be agreed by everyone.
