That the only sexual outlet they had was homosexual doesn't change their basic orientation, and once they have female partners available they no longer engage in homosexual activity.
So, there'd have to be some seriously large studies performed that support the notion that men are identifying as bi simply because they don't have female partners available before I'd accept that premise as true. I'll wager the reason more men are identifying as bi has to do with increased acceptance of bisexuality.
