I was deeply offended by the article regarding bisexual men and how to "spot" them ["When 'Brokeback' Leads to Heartbreak," March 2]. I am an educator for the Los Angeles School District. One of my job responsibilities is to educate administrators, teachers, students and parents in regard to the rights of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) population. I'm not sure if you are aware of this, but in public schools across the country LGBT persons are the main target of bias, bullying and harassment.
