I thought the issue was whether Umegat could be bi.  You, or someone,
was saying that if he were bi, he could just stick with women and not
have to flee the Archipelago.  I'm saying that's wrong.  As a
hypothetical bisexual, he could have fallen in love with a man, and fled
because of the consequences of that.  Being bi isn't a free pass to
casually ignoring the person you're in love with because it'd be
socially inconvenient.
