He was smitten with a fine black man from Harlem, who was a professional musician with a "heart of gold". Furious, he couldn't restrain his volume, "Everyone should already know he's gay! He's far too artistic to be straight! C'mon, he gets along with women without trying to fuck them! He's sensitive and emotional! Just come out the closet already!"

Having access to both The Yin and The Yang will make a person more adaptable, more independent and more understanding of how the world works.
No wonder why everyone who has had a great impact on the world, turns out to be bi.
