Definition: Bisexual = people who ♥ people of Same/Similar Gender as themselves + ♥ people of Different Genders/Gender Presentations from themselves

Bisexuals - A person whose enduring physical, romantic and/or emotional attraction is to other people of various sexes and/or gender identities. Individuals may experience this attraction in differing ways and degrees over their lifetime. ~BiNet USA Bisexual Media Guide


DEFINITION OF BISEXUALITY: I call myself bisexual because I acknowledge that I have in myself the potential to be attracted - romantically and/or sexually - to people of more than one sex and/or gender, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree.  from “Selected Quotes” by Robyn Ochs

Bisexuals = people who can people of SAME/SIMILAR Gender as them + can people of DIFFERENT Genders/Gender Presentations from themselves ~Anonymous via Twitter

alphajade:

i know it can be awfully hard these days to tell if someone is actually bisexual or if they’re just lying about it with all these fake bisexuals running around, but with this foolproof guide, you will be able to tell if someone is a real bisexual!

step one: do they identify as bisexual?

if the answer is yes, then congratulations, you have found a real bisexual! amazingly enough, this works even if the subject is a young woman.

again, congratulations on your newfound skill at figuring out if someone is a REAL bisexual!

  • What is bisexuality? Here are definitions from Many bisexual groups from Several countries on More Than One continent.

I feel like I like guys and girls equally, but I've noticed I date more guys than girls? Am is till bi or is there some kind of special sexuality for me???

bisexualfunfacts:

Dating history has nothing to do with your sexuality. However, if you find yourself more attracted to guys than to girls, you have a preference, and to answer your question, you are still 100% bisexual. A lot of people perceive bisexuality as a 50/50 attraction to the binary genders. I don’t need to tell you how wrong that is. So, basically, preference doesn’t change the fact that you’re bi and you’re awesome.

Remember, there is NO Wrong Way to be Bisexual.

Gwendolyn Henry received an Unsung Hero Award by the Bisexual Resource Center in recognition of outstanding work for the bisexual community, in particular for the founding of the Bi Women of Color and Bi People of Color social and support groups.

Julia Canfield also received an Unsung Hero Award for creating and organizing Bisexual Health Awareness Month.

**To protect privacy we were unable to share photos of the Bi Women of Color that were in attendance. Hopefully one day when the world is safer and Biphobia/Homophobia free, when the mentality of “Why they put their business out like that” has ended, more Bi people of color can feel safer and confident to be publicly out.**

Also during the Celebrate Bisexuality Day & Bi Men’s Book Reading event, 5 authors, 2 of which were self ID People of Color, read selections from Recognize: The Voices of Bisexual Men”. This book is co-edited by Robyn Ochs and Dr. Heru Khuti. You can purchase the book here.

Are you LGBT? Living in England? Aged 14-21? Help shape the future of Stonewall’s Youth Programme.  

This survey is designed to help Stonewall improve our Youth Programme and the way we offer support to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) young people in England. We want LGBT young people to feel happier, safer and more involved in their schools and local communities.

Your answers will remain anonymous and the survey shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes to complete. 

On behalf of Stonewall, thank you!

apersnicketylemon:

'straight passing privilege' and 'cis passing privilege' don’t exist. What’s happening is called erasure, it’s not privilege, it’s part of oppression and a result of heteronormativity and cisnormativity. It isn’t privilege to have your orientation and gender constantly assumed wrongly, it isn’t a privilege to be erased and treated like you don’t exist.

experimentalmadness:

Ah yes all that sweet sweet bisexual privilege.

Like having more psychologists attribute your mental health to your indecisiveness.

or doctors not believing when you’ve become sexually active

or the government believing your ~~**straight marriage**~~ to be tax fraud

or having the biggest demographic in the LGBT community next to the trans community be homeless and suicidal

and then having nasty little monosexual queers dictate your own identity to you like you’re the fucking problem.

because that doesn’t add up to an entire life spent doubting your own identity so badly you can no longer, not even for a second, trust your own attractions romantic or sexual or otherwise.

until you feel so fucking messed up inside you think you’re lying to yourself and you have no way to validate who you are or how you perceive others.

because you’re straight enough
you’re not straight enough

you’re queer enough
you’re not queer enough

you’re nothing
you’re greedy
you’re lying you just want attention

so much privilege

look at it all

aliensglitter:

i have no use for ”queer-inclusive fiction” that doesn’t include bisexuals i don’t have time for that shit anymore. gays and lesbians have SO much stuff marketed towards them and all bisexuals get is biphobic remarks made by fictional gays and lesbians leading 2 real life gays and lesbians and straight ppl being even more biphobic than before. im done with the queer community excluding bisexual ppl absolutely fuckin done

bonnienoise:

sometimes i just get so pissed off at the idea that there are people out there that think that I, as a bisexual person, cannot find trans* bodies attractive. as if somehow by being bisexual i must be ascribing to heternormative ideas of what makes a man and what makes a woman, because clearly i am ascribing to it in every other way because apparently only cis people can be bisexual there are no trans bisexuals anywhere ever nope nope

khelish:

aight let me say this tho. when biphobic lesbians say things like "i don’t wanna be anywhere a guy has been” or the more cissexist/transmisogynistic “i don’t wanna be anywhere a dick has been”

you’re. kind of treating a bi woman like a used object. and totally qualifying her based on her past experiences. and deciding what does or does not impact her worth and “purity.”

and ur a piece of crap.

when anyone says that to any bisexual person regardless of the gender of the person saying it or the person they are saying it about they are dehumanizing a bisexual person and reducing them to a "thing", you are looking at them as a soiled object
