I'm also not a huge fan of labels, but the logic of brought up bisexual is the same, (though with out your noble motivation of have you tried not being gay? I agree that acceptance and education are important, but one of the major ways that the brain seems to function is to generalise and it does so with pigeonholes and labels. So LGBT. is a hetero term for not having sex with me but it also does not help L identify B as being us. I don't know what the solution is, but I'm looking.
