There’s a lot of Bi Phobia in the Gay Community. It’s easier to tell most straight people you’re a Lesbian then to tell some Lesbians that you are Bi.
When I rode on the Bi Float at Pride people did cheer, just not as loud as for the floats ahead and behind us. People also heckled us…
“You’re half way there” One man called out
A drag queen with a microphone lectured the crowd about how everyone should “give us a hand” because “being Bi isn’t easy.” I guess it’s true that even if they get shit from the rest of society, drag queens get a lot more acceptance from their own community, but it was painful to hear it spelled out so clearly
My best friend refuses to date a bisexual because she says they “don’t know if they’re coming or going.”
I get it–I do. Women don’t want to think about their girlfriend leaving them-or cheating on them with-a man.
I get that. But think about it–if I leave you for someone else, won’t it hurt whoever I am leaving you for?
A person can’t help who they are attracted to. They can control how they act on those attractions, but why should I have to cram my relationships into your box?
I had myself convinced for years that although I had this powerful attraction for women, I was fine with just appreciating them, but not actually acting on those feelings. I was convinced that on a day-to-day basis I would be happier with a man.
And then she kissed me.
And introduced me to Dyke Nights.
And I felt that there was no going back to men.
But then I met him.
Dammit still Bi!
And I feel like I can’t tell my lesbian friends about him.
