Bi-friendly journalism: If find/replacing “bisexual” with “gay/lesbian” would make the article homophobic, return to editor. @shinydan (via bisexualftw)

I know there are bisexual characters on television. I know that, surprisingly, some of them are actually pretty great (Nolan ‘I’m about a three on the Kinsey Scale, myself’ Ross from “Revenge,” for one, an actual bisexual character that I’m not ashamed of). But a handful of bisexual characters dotted around a handful of television shows isn’t good enough for me. I want more. I want bisexuals chosen by God hunting demons across the Midwest. I want bisexuals running crime rings in Harlan County, KY. I want bisexuals killing zombies in the South. I want bisexual meth cookers. I want bisexual crime solvers. I want bisexuals whose best friends are werewolves. I want bisexuals in this world, in other worlds, in outer space. I don’t want to be told that there’s a bisexual in this show or that show and be expected to nut up and shut up. I want bisexuals everywhere. @velociriot (via bisexualftw)

The Bisexual Community is not now and has never been made up of cisgender heteronormative/homonormative people only. People who repeat that painfully prejudicial falsehood are the equivalent of those who insist that “America is a Christian Nation” and then go on to bend themselves into historical and linguistic pretzels trying to prove their demonstrably false thesis.

Bi is the kind of queer that other queers think is queer.

I have no qualms about ticking the “bisexual” box on an equal opportunities form, but to echo the words of a lesbian friend given that I’m in a monogamous, heterosexual marriage I’m as good as straight to all intents and purposes - right?

No. Not “right”. Ticking the “bi” box on that form no more means I’m going to cheat on my husband with a woman than ticking the “heterosexual” box means I am going to cheat on my husband with a man.

It’s something that I would love to write about, but I don’t know where to start. My identity is an important part of me, but I find myself shying away from debates about orientation and where everybody sits on the spectrum because what do I know? To all intents and purposes, I present to the world as one half of the most “acceptable” setup… well, other than my complete disdain for breeding. Is my insistence that I am bisexual nothing more than shameless bandwagon-jumping?

When I first realised I had a crush on a woman I asked the question that probably I’m guessing most people which is, “oh, my goodness, I’m attracted to a woman. Whoops. Am I really a lesbian?” and then “have all my attractions to men heretofore been false consciousness?” This idea that I had them because I thought I was supposed to. And for some women or men that would be true. For me I looked back on my crushes and my relationships that I had and I thought “nope, those were real. Those were not inauthentic. Those were real feelings that I really had.” I really was attracted to men. I had to eliminate that possibility and then the next question I had “well this is a real crush, but maybe it’s just a one-off, one-time blip in the radar. Who knows? Maybe it’s an aberration and so I asked myself that question “is this a blip?” and it persisted. This crush persisted over many years. I had other crushes on other women and other men and so that wasn’t it either and I had to come to an understanding that this was me. @RobynOchs (via bisexualftw)

Why should it be that someone like me can have no fear when calling myself a lesbian, but upon discovering I like both women and men, be so hesitant to call myself bisexual? I hesitate because of all the popular misconceptions and negative connotations that are associated with the word.

While I’m personally not a proponent of labeling people, it is so much easier to explain your sexuality when you have a word to call yourself. I only wish I could feel comfortable and safe in the company of others that knew I liked both genders.

…this year on Reddit, a bisexual guy posted, “I have tried to commit suicide over me being a bi guy who says he is gay, its hard living a lie.I feel alone in this I looked on google to see if anyone was in my situation I FOUND NONE.” @BiNetUSA president Faith Cheltenham in her 2012 blog Google’s Bisexual Problem (via bisexualftw)

This movement on the part of people who call themselves pansexual to demonize people who identify as bisexual is quite recent; it has only been the last 10 years or so, but it has been vicious. There are some sites where you will be bullied if you identify as bisexual instead of pansexual.

I have been attracted to trans people all my life, and am gender variant myself; imagine how it felt to be watching a YouTube video about pansexuality in which the young college student stated that all bisexuals are not attracted to trans people and only like manly men and feminine women. And she stated this with total certainty.

We still are trying to find out who is training this generation of college students to hate, and who is trying to set non-monosexuals against each other. Where are these biphobic lies coming from?

my ideal study to find out whether bisexuality exists would go like this:

Researcher: Are you bisexual?
Participant: Yes.
Researcher: Okay then, we’re all done here! Thanks for your time.
