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.
Amen to all these comments. I am bisexual, not because I am unsure or because I want attention, but because I am attracted to men and women. That is all it means.
While I have kissed both men and women, I have also dated men and women and been romantically infatuated by men and women. I am bisexual because I am attracted to men and women. When I marry, it won’t mean my sexual preference changes, to either straight or gay, it will mean that the person I have chosen to marry, I love and have decided I want to spend the rest of my life with them.
I wish people would stop being prejudiced. I have been prejudiced in my life, but the way I have overcome it is by educating myself, attempting to understand other perspectives with an open mind. That’s what people need to do - educate themselves and stop assuming they know everything.
I try my absolute hardest not to pre-judge people and generalise, I wish people would do the same for me.
