What Does "Marriage Equality" Mean for Bisexuals?

 

I've wondered, when it comes to LGBT "equality", we hear an awful lot about L and G "equality" and never anything about "B" equality.

Terence Jeffrey of CNSNews asks the same question of President Obama:

"...So, what does Obama's "marriage equality" mean for bisexuals?

According to Merriam-Webster, homosexual means "characterized by a tendency to direct sexual desire toward another of the same sex." Bisexual means "characterized by a tendency to direct sexual desire toward both sexes."

Obama, we now know, believes homosexual men have a "right" to marry other men, and homosexual women have a "right" to marry other women. So, who does he believe bisexuals have a "right" to marry?

In Obama's world, does a bisexual man have a "right" to enter into a bigamous union with one other man and one woman? Or can the state force him to limit his marriage to the union of just two people?

And if that is the case, how would Obama, within his philosophy of government, justify prohibiting a bisexual from forming a tripartite marriage?"

So what gives? What does marriage equality for bisexuals look like?
