Michelle Rodriguez opens up about bisexuality


Speaking to Gay Star News, Michelle Rodriguez said she made the decision to openly talk about her bisexuality, hoping that her confession will help those who aren’t brave enough to do the same.

She said:  “I’m not big on people’s opinions, you know? Unless it’s somebody I really respect. I don’t care what people out there have to say. But I do realize the importance of having the bravery to live as who you are and I feel like a lot of people don’t have that bravery.

“Maybe by me opening my big fat mouth like I usually do and stepping up and owning who I am, maybe it might inspire somebody else to do the same.”

    I applaud her decision to be frank about who she is, and that she is comfortable with herself–though it’s nobody’s business. However, her remark about age (“eventually it’s going to wrinkle up and I’m not going to be able to use it”) is just another sexual stigma. She’s young. She’s got a lot of time to learn that our identity and our needs as sexual human beings may change, but do not necessarily diminish with age

      Hi Tammy. I cringed a bit when I heard that comment, too, b/c I am in my early ’50s and struggle all the time with signs of aging and with feeling like I missed my opportunities to have someone love me. I don’t think she was suggesting that older people don’t have sexual needs (although I wouldn’t call them needs, b/c if I needed sex, I’d be dead by now since I haven’t even kissed a woman in almost 15 years). I used to feel so good about myself and how I looked 20 years ago. She is talking about losing her attractiveness b/c of aging and I understand that. I started to feel that way after I turned 40. She’s just starting to feel it a few years younger than I did. And she is saying what many of us feel.

    She’s a year older than me I’m 34 (bi also). I don’t feel old yet lol. It’s cool that she’s comfortable with who she is. I just don’t like the stereotyping that bisexuals receive from gays and straights.
