An appreciation post for all bisexuals that fit some sort of a bi stereotype. Polyamorous? Prefer the opossite gender? Like sex? Wonderful! We’re lucky to have you in the community, and you’re not a “bad bisexual” for staying true to who you are.
I encourage you to write what stereotype you fit, if you fit any, and let’s celebrate it. (Do this in tags, replies or as a reblog, up to you.)
Just a reminder that every bisexual is a valid member of the LGBTQ+ community, regardless of their experience, preference or sexual history.
Just a friendly reminder everyone’s self-discovery journey is different, and one person’s experience doesn’t invalidate another person’s experience.
We’re all different, so our journeys can’t look the same.
hey,,, rb if u too are a bisexual and love ice cream… a ilb (ice cream loving bisexual)
with being bi it can often feel like you’re being suffocated out of existence. like people don’t or won’t acknowledge your identity and think of you as straight and convince you it’s a phase. but you’ll find people who appreciate you as you are, and won’t hold shitty stereotypes against you. all i’m trying to say is, for anyone who’s in the closet or just figured out that they’re bi and find the notion of coming out terrifying – it get’s better.
Hey, friendly reminder that your attraction to people who aren’t the same gender as you is just as valid as your same gender attraction. You are bi, and that means you’re allowed to be exactly that: bi. You’re still 100% valid and you still belong in the LGBTQ+ community despite not being exclusively attracted to people of the same gender.
Remember that you’re still a completely valid bi person even if you’re not out of the closet, even if you’re struggling with internalized biphobia, even if you’re still questioning, even if you’re doubting your bisexuality from time to time: you’re all valid, and nothing can keep you from being a part of this community.
Remember that it’s really common for us bisexuals to have doubts about whether we’re REALLY bi or not: Flipping from “Am I just straight?” one day to “Maybe I’m actually gay” the other, for example. You’re not alone in this. However, having these doubts is the most bi thing ever! The way I see it, wondering if you suddenly feel exclusively attracted to one gender, and then thinking you’re exclusively attracted to another, just proves that you like more than one gender!
(P.S.: This isn’t meant to invalidate the questioning of anyone who is exclusively attracted to one gender in any way, but as a reassurance to bi people who experience this!)
