Willow Danielle Rosenberg (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Do you think Williow's a lesbian or a bisexual?
Okay, I had to think a bit about this before giving you a straight answer (no pun intended!) because I feel like I am underqualified to give an informed opinion on this issue since I’m not either a lesbian or a bisexual, and I wouldn’t want to make any assumptions that are well beyond my understanding or field of knowledge or experience. And please, if anyone can pitch in and enlighten me and Anon here, do so!
Before I tell you what I think, I have to quote Willow herself and the way she perceives and thinks of herself:
First and foremost, I believe in the right of every person to define themselves however they want/feel/choose to do it.
The way I see it? A lot of LGTB people go through a lot of experiences/relationships before they finally come to terms with who they are and venture to label themselves in any way. I have a couple of gay friends and I’ve talked about this with them. All of them were in heterosexual relationships before they came out, and even developed feelings for their partners. But they wouldn’t consider themselves to be bisexual because in the past they were involved with a member of the opposite sex. It’s just the journey they travelled until they fully grasped and understood and came to terms with their own sexuality.
Did Willow love Oz? I truly think she did. Does that make her a bisexual? I don’t think so. Especially not when she defines herself in the way she does.
There are a lot of people who were able to fall in love with a member of the opposite sex before they finally came out. Whenever someone brings up this issue, I always think of Freddie Mercury, who was in a monogamous relationship with a woman for years before coming out and even after he did, he still loved her. But that didn’t make him straight or even bisexual. He just loved this particular woman. Hell, he even wrote one of the greatest love songs about her!
Even if Willow loved Oz, and he certainly was one of the loves of her life, that doesn’t make her bisexual in my opinion. After all, after she came out, we never again see her feel attraction towards a man or even develop romantic feelings for a man. She just felt that way about Oz, once in her life and never again.
I don’t know, I might be making a fool out of myself here, and I don’t want to offend anyone, so please enlighten me if I am way out of line.
Imagine Willow’s tumblr account.

I’ve seen honest faces before. They’re usually attached to liars.
