usage note for bisexual
Traditionally, bisexual has referred to romantic, emotional, or sexual attraction to two, and no more than two, genders, specifically men and women. However, the term is increasingly being used to refer to a level of sexual fluidity in which an individual moves bidirectionally along a spectrum of sexuality. This newer sense acknowledges attraction to people who do not fall within the gender binary.
