Queer theory is attractive to me because it offers an explanation of identity that does not necessarily require previous identities be discarded as less “real” or authentic. This potential is important for bisexuals, many of whom come to bisexuality from lesbian, gay or straight identities, and may change identity again later in life. If change is destigmatized, even seen as revolutionary, then the stereotypical charge that bisexuals are untrustworthy because they change can be refuted without having to reject change as bad.
