I am not criticizing bisexual women, nor am I calling into question Barrymore's ability to identify however she'd like.I am concerned, however, with the effects her visibility (or lack thereof) might have when it comes to the perception of bisexual women in the media. The picture that comes out of what she says is that of a woman seeing other women as either a pastime, something to get you out of boredom in your bad days, or as means for advertising your movie.
I think it's probably harsh to say Drew Barrymore is giving bisexuality a bad name.(In a huge ensemble cast, the gay men were completely desexualized and not part of the very straight sex and romance storylines.) And in , Drew played a closeted woman who referred to her partner as her friend.These things aside, I've often wondered about Drew Barrymore, who once referred to herself as bisexual — quite often, in fact.From a 1996 interview in A woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful.Being with a woman is like exploring your own body, but through someone else. I'm not here to doubt Drew Barrymore's bisexuality — I'm asking if it disappeared, or if that notion is even a possibility.
