MP on Bi Experience

photo: Houses of ParliamentToday saw one of the rarest moments in Parliament – an MP specifically talking about bisexual experience.

Mike Freer MP had commented about the same-sex marriage bill and “the anomaly that a gay man or a straight man joining the pension scheme will pay contributions at the same rate but receive different benefits, which is discrimination.”

Julian Huppert MP replied, “It is absolutely discriminatory. It is also the case that a bisexual man or woman would pay at the same rate and would get a different pension transferred depending who they happen to end up with. That seems truly bizarre.”
