Can you identify as bisexual but still be in a opposite-sex, monogomous relationship? Of course. However, Larry King seems a bit confused by that prospect.
Earlier this summer, "True Blood" star Anna Paquin opened up about her bisexual identity, in light of her marriage to co-star Stephen Moyer and having given birth to their set of twins. During a lengthy interview this week, King seemed a bit confused by Paquin's self-identification as bisexual despite her monogamous, opposite-sex marriage.
King: "Are you a non-practicing bisexual?"
Paquin: "Well, I am married to my husband and we are happily monogamously married."
King: "But you were bisexual?"
Paquin: "Well, I don’t think it’s a past-tense thing."
Larry King: "No?"
Paquin: "No. 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."
Paquin recently discussed her bisexual identity on HuffPost Live, telling viewers that "monogamy and bisexuality are [not] mutually exclusive," and if someone disagrees with that it's their problem not her own.
Good for you, Anna!
