I think the bisexual tag should only be used if there's bisexual romance (two girls and one boy/two boys and one girl, for example), not for bisexual characters.

That's Polyamory or Threesome, not Bisexual.

To be honest, you're both right...

That said, after some reflection and going through the comments section in depth, I've begun to think that there is actually a deeper message in this story.

Honestly, it's seems like the main message is about how people can sometimes end up deceiving themselves. The interesting thing is that the "truth" of Mitsuko's orientation is ambiguous/left up to interpretation... which I can understand why that would be upsetting to a lot the readers. But, I think the point was more about the fact that Mitsuko didn't know who or what she wanted to be, which lead the ending in the story happening.

Of course, there's also the issue of how the other women in the office are completely duplicitous in what they're thinking versus what they're saying. Really, there's a part of me that's inclined to think that the "real victim" in this story was Kyouko. I mean, people talk about her behind her back, and in the last panel- based on her reaction- it seems that she actually cared about Mitsuko a lot more than she realized.

Hence, you could say that she's the victim by not being honest with herself and Mitsuko when it mattered most.

"I don't understand women????" yikes, Ryuta

If you're starting your day, skip this one and go on to read something sweeter like students yuri.

I'm not saying it should be used instead of those tags.

Edit: Actually, after thinking better, I think it's indeed useful to identify that a character is bisexual (IF it affects the story, like this case), but Polyamory and Threesome alone don't make it clear that a character is in a relationship with characters of both genders.

Bisexual doesn't either. It simply means someone is attracted to both genders. It doesn't mean they only fuck or date people of both gender at the same time. Someone bi can still be in love triangle with 2 girls or cheat on girl with other girl, or hell, even date 2 girls at the same time, without either knowing about it. You suggest those tags without even understanding what they actually mean.

I'm fairly sure that's exactly how this tag is already used in Dynasty...

It's popular in a way. Not a good one though.

This has a misleading cover art. I thought the cheating would stop and the gals would marry, but I was wrong.

Me after reading this: laughing and crying at the same time. Well, it's a good story as far as giving myself a hard kick in the gut is concerned. I mean, there's no doubt the intent was to give the reader a tough time (or fucking trauma), and it delivered well.
