I know it's fairly vulgar of me to ponder such things, but Oscar's personal proclivities kind of serve as a springboard that launches other questions that aren't really so much about him as a person, but people in general.
When asked by the press if he was a homosexual, Michael Stipe of the band R.E.M calmly replied,"No, I'm sexual.". Likely because he's consorted with people of both genders.
Roseanne Barr, the raucous comedian, once stated,"Straight people I get and Gay people I get, but I don't get the Bisexual. Everyone else has to make a choice, why don't they?". This was said with a tone of humor in her voice btw.
We know Oscar married and had children. And we know he had a thing for younger men. Does this make him bisexual or just someone who found himself attracted to a person rather than a specific gender? Does the person who falls in love with any gender just have a more open heart, or are they just base perverts easily aroused at any moment?
I can't recall which society it was, maybe the Greeks, but there was a belief that the bisexual was actually more 'centered' or complete than those who are strictly straight or strictly gay. It had something to do with the ability to fuse male and female into that truly complete 'One'. That's not quite right but it was along those lines.
I just wonder if some people have a greater capacity to love without bound than others. I'd prefer to see it that way versus the Puritanical notion that it's a result of some slobbering perversity born in the bowels of Hell. X-D
