Anna Paquin of HBO's True Blood came out as bisexual years ago, and while more and more Americans are getting more and more okay with gay people, bisexuals still seem to have certain people flummoxed. Such as Larry King. In an interview with the aging TV personality, Paquin did her best to explain to Larry how she could be married to a man, the mother of twins, AND bisexual. Simultaneously. From an July interview on Larry King Now, courtesy of USA Today:
“Are you a non-practicing bisexual,” King asked the actress.
“Well, I am married to my husband and we are happily monogamously married,” she replied.
“But you were bisexual?” King pressed.
“Well, I don’t think it’s a past tense thing,” Paquin explained. “Are you still straight if you are with somebody?… If you were to break up with them or if they were to die, it doesn’t prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn’t really work like that.”
Also, using Larry's logic, straight people are "non-practicing straights" unless they're with someone of the opposite gender and HAVING SEX THIS VERY MINUTE.
