Bisexual and proud.
i have a problem with this. why is it called “bisexual” if bi means two?
1. Because we aren’t literally speaking actual classical Latin. At least, non ego, et tu?
2. Because you are attracted to 1) Similar and 2) Different genders to your own.
They actually messed up the defition. Pansexual is attraction to the 2 binary genders and the non-binary genders. Bisexual is only attraction for two genders
Nope. Nope. NOPE NOPE NOPE.
The definition in this post- that I, a bisexual woman made, using the definition most commonly and widely accepted by bisexual organizations, is in fact THE CORRECT DEFINITION.
I couldn’t care less about football. But seeing “Michael Sam become the first openly gay athlete drafted by the NFL" warms my heart.
They ask me if I feel like I was born in the wrong body. As if gender is that simple. As if my body is a pair of handcuffs chaining me to housewife, to mother, to woman. I am not trapped in my body. I am trapped in other people’s perceptions of my body…My body is not wrong. The way people talk about my body is wrong.

10 things you should absolutely NEVER say to a bisexual woman.
- Want to have a threesome with my boyfriend and me?
- That’s awesome — you get twice as many dates!
- Oh, sure, everyone experiments in college.
- Bi chicks always go straight in the end.
- Isn’t that just another way of saying slutty?
- But which do you like better, men or women?
- You’re just saying that to get attention from guys.
- “So you’re gay now?” (when you date a girl) or “So you’re straight now?” (when you date a guy)
- I’d like to date you, but I just know you’d end up cheating on me.
- Bisexuals have it so much easier.
Oh hey I wrote this! Read it, learn it, live it.
Guess what my peeps, we thought we’d hate this. But you know what? We didn’t.
It’s actually funny; pretty much on point; it’s NOT one of those awful holier-than-thou slut-shaming things (See item 5) and for a "mass-market" thing it’s less binariest than 99.9% of the stuff said by most of Big Gay Inc (See item 6).
So is this a Queer Theory Classic? No. it’s an article in the mass market media, right in there next to "10 Surprising Uses for Nail Polish". So taking it for what it is, a "Cosmo Girl" article, we say "well played Ask A Queer Chick. Well played.”

Brunei’s ‘Kill-a-Gay’ and ‘Flog-a-Woman’ Laws Force Feminist Group to Pull Gala Event from Sultan's Beverly Hills Hotel
"Female advocates have launched a petition against the hotel’s owner, the Sultan of Brunei, calling for the end of the “Taliban-like” rules."
Killing LGBTQ people and flogging women for having abortions — these are the homophobic, misogynist laws Brunei will soon implement.
This is such an important thing to say, though.
A lot of people are acknowledging this as a very powerful sound bite, but take a minute to really consider the context of this.
Every time you misgender a trans person, you are putting their lives in danger.
You aren’t just hurting our feelings - and there is nothing “just” about hurt feelings for people prone to suicide - you risk outing us to people we may not want to be outed to.
It opens us up to harassment, discrimination, and even assault. We could lose our jobs, our families, and our livelihood.
Every time you intentionally misgender a trans person, you tell us that you consider us to be less than animals.
"When a trans* woman is called a man, that is an act of violence." BOOM. Laverne Cox is everything.
You hear things like, ‘People shouldn’t know about your life because you’re creating an illusion on-screen.’ But I don’t see other actresses going to great lengths to hide their heterosexuality. That’s an unfair double standard.
Janet Mock, writer and trans* activist, “flips the script and asks TV host Alicia Menendez when she began to identify as a cisgender woman.”
"When I was asking you the questions, I came from a space of entitlement of saying you need to prove to me that your identity and your body is real." — Janet Mock
