(I sound defensive because this article shows him to be a womanizer in a major way and there was no hint he might have played in 'Dorthy's' back yard!)
    Congrats on your 69th post.

    I think it's possible to be bisexual and a womanizer and I also don't think anyone at this board will be outraged that you are claiming Burton was bi because it's not an insult. Unless you think it's an insult?

    Burton admitted to being bisexual in an interview, although his exact words could be viewed as merely an example of his wit."
    What were his exact words? Why not let the reader decide how they could be viewed?
    He said all actors drink to cover up their homosexuality, and that he was once actively gay as a young man. This was from a 1974 interview with Michael Parkinson. (InLikeErrol16:56, 15 June 2007 (UTC))
    This is an LGBT article. Burton admitted to having been actively bisexual: he didn't 'try it once and didn't like it', he chose to have many homo experiences, at a time when it was illegal. Most people are hetero, but many bisexuals claim that most people are bi. It would be very unlikely that Burton's quote about actors being homosexuals who cover it up with drink would be first said by a heterosexual. The fact he was an acor who was a very heavy drinker makes it virtually certain that he was including himself in the quote in question. Therefore he should be in bisexual and LGBT categories.
