Don’t let anyone tell you your orientation and/or gender identity isn’t real or doesn’t exist. An identity is something you feel and can’t be proved wrong or right. Other people might take a while to realize/learn that, if they’re even willing to; please remember that if someone continuously makes you feel horrible for being who you are, then they’re not good for your well-being. Please take care of yourselves.
Please don’t forget that all ways of being bisexual are acceptable. There truly is no right or wrong way to be bi: no matter who you like or how much, no matter who you have or haven’t dated, no matter if you act on your attraction to a specific gender only, whether you feel no sexual attraction at all or lots of it – you are just as bi.
Bisexuals face a lot of stereotypes every day. We’re told we always cheat on people, we can’t be in a monogamous relationship, we’re told we’re either gay and afraid to come out or straight and trying to be interesting…
Remember your sexuality is valid. No matter how many people try to tell you otherwise. Bisexuality is real, it’s amazing and you should be proud to be bisexual.
Additionaly, if you happen to fit a stereotype, e.g. if you prefer polyamorous reationships, that’s completely okay! It is also okay to identify as bisexual and then realise another labe fits you better.You are who you are and you are wonderful and valid.
Here’s to all the bisexual characters in the media whose sexuality gets erased by people calling them gay or straight.
Here’s to everyone that struggles with their sexuality and has no character to relate to, because writers of today’s media prefer to not use the word bisexual, as if it’s a dirty word.
Here’s to every bisexual character that has been killed off a show or went away because the media couldn’t stand the pressure of having a bisexual character and doing it justice.
And here’s to all my fellow bisexuals: We will get the representation we deserve one day. I promise.
Things to remember
You’re allowed to identify as bi if you’re attracted to more than two genders but don’t want to use another label.
It’s okay to identify as bi even if you have a strong preference for one gender.
You’re fine if you identify as bi even if you’re not completely sure who you are yet and just want to try it out for a bit.
You can be bi without ever having dated anyone.
Here’s a shout-out to all trans people in the community! Trans bisexuals and trans people in general don’t get a lot of recognition, but you truly are important and beautiful and brave. Thanks for being you!
Today comes a reminder that it’s very important to practice safe sex! No matter who you are or your partner, whether you’re in a same-gender relationship or not, it’s always vital and necessary (which, unfortunately, a lot of people don’t know!) Please be safe always 🙂
Here’s a collection of words that are synonymous with bi for today’s edition (they’re also alliterations!):
Have a brilliant and bi day, everyone! ❤️💜💙
Reminder that you are allowed to take your time to figure your own identity out. You don’t have to know exactly what words to use to describe yourself, and you don’t have to give people an answer to how you’re feeling if you don’t want to share it. You are allowed to go about things at your own pace.
Here’s a reminder that you are not required to prove anything regarding your orientation to anyone. Whether it be pressure from within the LGBTQ+ community or from outside of it; you don’t need to show anyone just how ‘gay’ or ‘straight’ you are. Bisexuality is an identity of its own and doesn’t need to be proved!
