Yeah, hi, me again.

So. Well-played or well-written bisexual characters --not "confused" or "sexually ambiguous" for the sake of being comical but characters who clearly identify as bisexual -- can you think of any?

The only one who comes to mind for me is, amazingly enough, from a manga: the aforementioned Dee, from Sanami Matoh's FAKE.

The only one I can think of right off was the character in "Better Than Chocolate". She wasn't particularly deep, but at least she wasn't confused.

I do love how she phrased her preferences, though: "I like soft centers AND hard centers."

That's one of the ones I keep meaning to see and then always forget about when I finally hit up Blockbuster. Most of my friends, queer and otherwise, who've seen it gave it a lukewarm review, but it's about time I make up my own mind about it.

...And that quote has me longing for a bag each of hard and soft Werther's Original.

I love that movie. It makes me happy. I've heard less-than-wonderful things about it too, but I think it's adorable!

Isn't that ultimately what really matters anyway? :)

Carla. :-) That's the characters name.

I swear I know a few more but I can't think right now. Hmm..

Alice on the "L Word" identifies as bi. She is sort of a freak this season, but it is due to a broken heart and I generally think she is adorable.

Not sure, but does the character of Helen in "Kissing Jessica Stein" identify as bi?

There are some articles about bisexual characters on TV on afterellen.com----a great site in general for film/TV and queer women.
