This is the kind of shit that just really gets to me and pisses me off. How can you support the gay and lesbian community but then not us? It’s not that difficult to go educate yourself on bisexuality and what it means, and it is really not that difficult to understand. This is not some crazy kinky thing that people choose to do. We’re not some crazy attention whores who are confused and don’t know what we want. Are there some people out there who are confused? Sure. Are there some annoying immature girls out there who just want attention? Sure. Are there bisexual people out there who are promiscuous and jump from one to the other constantly? There are. But that doesn’t give anyone the right to generalize and stereotype all bisexuals as one. You are pegging an entire community of people as something bad, and something not to be taken seriously or even considered “real”, based upon the few who give us a bad reputation.
Generalizing entire communities of people is wrong. Don’t sit there and think you know what kind of person I am because you once witnessed a couple 13 year old girls that claimed to be bi and made out with one another at a party. Those aren’t the faces of bisexuality and that kind of behavior certainly does not represent me or what it means to be bisexual. This is a STEREOTYPE. And it’s WRONG and should NEVER be used as some kind of evidence against why you do not support or accept an entire group/community of people.
Just admit that you are a close-minded and ignorant bigot.
This. If I hear one more person tell me that all bisexuals “just want het privilege” (or that bisexuals get het privilege, because hot damn is that a generalization that is untrue as fuck) I will cut a bitch.
why can’t these people fucking grow up and realize there are no ”sides” shit, this isn’t kindergarten anymore.
No, that is not even enough, let me explain to you a thing. For one thing, some people will date someone of the same sex, and another of the opposite sex, and they don’t have to be so confused whether they are homosexual or not. Some people just don’t think about genitals, rather how much they love someone for being who they are and will choose soulmates that way, not caring about gender, instead only looking at someone’s heart.
Also, this erasure is INCREDIBLY DETRIMENTAL TO PEOPLE. What others fail to realize is that all of this biphobia and bi erasure has a deadly impact on bisexual people of all kind. It’s confusing enough developing feelings for peoples of more genders than just one, but add to the mix that there are disgraceful people, in the real word and as trolls on the internet, who are telling you that how you feel is imaginary or just for attention, and that’s obviously going to lead to major internal conflict. And social media, popular culture, and even GSM groups support these ideals. Is it any wonder why non-mono people are at the highest risk for suicide and depression?
