The Bisexual Boom on TV

Almost universally, the stories that these shows have found to tell about their characters coming out, about their romantic relationships, and about the mysteries of sexual attraction are more interesting than the straight stories. I have seen so, so many love triangles.... It is just so nice to watch love stories that explore territories outside the painfully familiar “how will that nice lady ever land a husband” world. It’s so nice to watch stories with something different to say about attraction and the complexity of adult relationships.
