When I started dating a woman for the first time after years of happily dating men, I had a go-to joke ready for when I was called upon to explain my sexual orientation to the confused: “I’m half gay.
Only on my mom’s side of the family.” I’m one of those people who’d always misguidedly “hated labels,” and I actively eschewed the term “bisexual” for years.
I think the article is misleading for a bunch of reasons.
(It also contains the noisome quote, “Women are their own worst enemy when it comes to equality,” but most of it isn’t quite that bad.)Here are the main ones:1) Most immediately to the headline, the two professions of carpenter vs yoga instructor are not comparable.

I dated boys here and there until I hit a two-year span where I wasn't dating men at all during college, and even came out to my parents as gay. For two years, I kind of awkwardly danced around the subject, but she surprisingly never gave up.
