Samuel Fletcher, town councillor for Bracken Bank and Ingrow Ward in Keighley, told his Facebook friends yesterday that he thinks that both bisexual and transsexual people are “part-time homosexuals”.
 reported that he elaborated on this theory by adding that

a bisexual person is homosexual, it’s just that they’re, if you will, a part-time homosexual who can also be a heterosexual

while members of the trans community “changed their own sexuality [sic] to appeal to appeal to members of the opposite sex”.

Here is the full exchange from his facebook page:

All those years we’ve been searching for a perfect way to explain bisexuality to people who don’t quite get it, and here it is – at last.

Oh. Dear.

    And they call bisexuals “confused”… 😛

  • I can’t stop giggling, he looks like a statue with a pubis hedge in the middle of his forehead.
    I can’t help but think this is just a strait person ‘being real’ in that he has no real understanding of sexualities different from his own, he’s trying to make sense of something he doesn’t understand and is failing horribly. Bless him! He’s quite right when he says ‘what other people get up to is none of my business’ and he admits to being ‘confused’. I’m not particularly keen on the politics of UKIP or Samuel’s inability to distinguish between all the letters of the LGBTA(etc) alphabet. I suppose being that UKIP members are basically a bunch of blokes who perhaps hitched a ride in the Delawarean from the 1890’s to see what the future was like, this is to be expected.
