Relating the personal experiences of bisexual women to the friendship literature
ResumenFriendship research has only recently allowed an understanding of the experiences of bisexual women. When bisexual women's friendships have been considered, however, their experiences have largely been discussed in contrast to other sexual minority comparison groups. This paper provides an analysis of the literature related to the personal experiences of bisexual women in an effort to better understand the ways in which friendship may be experienced. Discussion will focus on three major themes related to bisexual women's friendships: (1) definitions of friendship; (2) attitudes toward bisexuality mediates friendship experiences; and (3) friendship networks and communities. Suggestions are offered regarding how the research literature could better reflect the complex and diverse friendship experiences of bisexual women. (Extraído del documento)
