People don’t think bisexuality is real enough to be discriminated against, so they don’t think about it. They don’t think they’re actually hurting anyone. But they are.

“Why do you need to use terms like monosexism? Stop being so divisive!”

Translation: Bi people using their own terms to describe their own experiences is divisive and bad. Anything that suggests that bi people’s experiences are different from gay people’s are terrible. Don’t you know that unity involves completely ignoring your own issues if they don’t include us?

One thing I never understood in the discourse, no matter if ace exclusionists, terfs or biphobes; the argument is always “cis straight people are using this identity to sneak into the LGBT community and steal our resources” and that leads me to one question: Why? Why would they? What use would a “straight man” have from saying they’re a trans lesbian? Why should somebody say they’re ace, why would people want to be a part of a MARGIALIZED GROUP, aka the LGBT community? Why would somebody want to get rid of their priviledge, just to be shunned by society, to recieve threats and hate? Just because they want PRIDE? Or what is your argument here, dear exclusionist?!

When you mix blue and red it makes Purple.  Purple isn’t referred to as half blue and half red.  It is it’s own color in and of itself and it has a name, Purple!

And sometimes depending on how it’s mixed, it turns out more red or more blue, but it is still referred to as Purple.  And sometimes depending on how it’s mixed, it can be lighter or sometimes its darker, but it is still referred to as Purple.  And sometimes many of these different shades and hues also have their own names, but even then they are all also

still referred to as Purple!


The same goes for Bisexual+ people and the Bi+ Community.  Still here, still queer, and not going to disappear.

If you define bisexuality as “an attraction to men and women”, then define pansexuality…
