bisexual invisibility isn’t new. you see, we’ve always had the power.
every unsolved high stakes art robbery? bisexuals.
crop circles? bisexuals with mowers.
poltergeists? nope just rowdy bisexuals
Roanoke colony? bisexuals probably.
fun tip: say ‘another gender’ instead of ‘the opposite gender’ and crush the binary beneath your feet
"bisexual women are not more accepted than gay men and lesbians, they’re more sexualized. and that is a huge difference.”
~Stevie Boebi (aka SassiBoB) from the YouTube video “Bisexuals are GREEDY WHORES”: Lesbians hate on and discriminate against Bisexual Women. Cut it out.

bad/offensive representation is not representation
marginalized people do not and have no obligation to accept shitty representation
Today I came out to a few close friends that I was bisexual and had a crush on another girl.
As soon as I said it they all stood up and applauded me and congratulated me for being able to say it and promised to still be friends.
Their acceptance of me Gives Me Hope

Whenever you forget “LGBT Friendly Spaces” are Just for gay people, the rampant amounts of transphobia and biphobia will swiftly remind you -_-
"I have nothing against bisexuals, but…"
"I’m not biphobic, but…"
"I’m not bi, but I think bisexuals should…"
"In order to be accepted, bi people need to…"
I’ve learnt that being a feminist doesn’t mean you will never fuck up again. We are undoing years of internalized misogyny, racism, homophobia, ableism, transphobia, prejudices, [ed note and biphobia], and stereotypes.
I’m fat, queer and genderfluid; and I still say offensive things about all of the things that I am. The point is to recognize when you do it, and to stop doing it again.
There’s a paradox in thinking that you’re better than other girls, when your whole reason for feeling that way is because you think your gender is so inherently inferior that you want to dis-identify with being a girl altogether.–
More Than Words: Tomboys R Us

[Image: Screen shot of Tumblr search box (top right hand side of screen) taken 3 March 2014 showing the tracked search term #Bisexual (unlocked) with Tumblr’s 'suggestions' beneath it: #gay #lgbt + #sociopathic. The word "sociopathic" is circled with an arrow pointing to it and the words "Really Tumblr?" written next to it, all in a bright red.]I’m not sure what algorithm Tumblr currently uses to decide what is an appropriate "related tag", but I suggest they fix this. Immediately!
Also since this is not the first time Tumblr’s Algorithm’s have "suggested" insulting terms might be related to bisexuals please be aware that a careful examination of bisexual + bisexuality related posts has been made. At this time none were found with the word "sociopathic" tagged OR in the body of the text.
But even if 1 or 2 did … given the number of Stupid Things people Write + Tag on Tumblr (think sex + drugs + rock and roll plus racial slurs) we are VERY VERY sure that Tumblr not wishing to have Reverend Al and the National Action Network on their Doorstep demanding recompense has ways to override egregiously idiotic correlations.
Sad that the same technical safeguards were not applied to the Bisexual Community.
