Sara Gilbert speaks out about the pressure on celebrities to come out – and not as bisexual
It’s been quite a week for celebrities coming out as bisexual.
Both Tom Daley and Maria Bello went public with the fact that they are in relationships with people of the same sex but did not label themselves as gay.
Sara Gilbert discussed these announcements with fellow panelists on The Talk and makes the point that people just don’t like or seem to believe someone can be bisexual.
‘There’s a pressure for people to label themselves as gay or straight. Whenever someone says they are bisexual – (Tom Daley) says he still fancies girls and in Maria Bello’s (New York Times) article, she’s talking about how she could still kind of like both it sounded like. People don’t like that and go, “Oh no, they’re probably one or the other.”‘
