Julie Bindle has written an article essentially dismissing the existence of bisexuality, and suggesting it's all a political/feminist issue. The 'evidence' she includes is a survey of 400 women, some of those women thinking bisexuality doesn't exist.

As a comparison, inspired by the project to get a longer list of evolution-supporting scientists named Steve, than the list of evolution denying scientists (named anything), a friend has set up a page to get 400 women called Sarah to affirm that they believe bisexuality exists.
