(1/2) Hi there! So I read the faq links about internalized biphobia and I didn’t see anything quite like what I’m experiencing so I’ll give it a shot… I think I’ve mostly come to terms with the fact that I’m bisexual, and I am able to recognize it as a valid sexuality finally, but I still feel sort of icky about it? Like I just don’t feel like my attraction to the same gender is as pure and lovely as my attraction to the opposite gender.

(2/2) I know deep down that that’s not true, but every time I even come close to accepting myself and possibly coming out, I get disgusted at myself for these attractions. I’m sure this is probably because of the way I was raised to think about LGBTQ+ relationships, but even with that acknowledgement I can’t get these thoughts out of my head. Any advice?

hey! our FAQ links are quite a mess rn and we’re still working on them. and internalised biphobia develops in a multitude of different ways that may not be the “same.” and the way i experienced internalised biphobia when i was figuring things out sounds very similar to what you’re experiencing
