my heart goes out to religious bisexuals- and not just christians. to bi muslims and jewish people. to the hindus and buddhists. whether you’re comfortable with your religion, or struggling with it, it’s so unfair how the lgbt community erases us. being bisexual and religious are not two opposite, conflicting sides. we’re beautiful and we’ve existed for centuries to come, and will do so because existing in a word where we’re told we can’t, is revolutionary
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.
Hey, just a quick reminder about today;
Your sexuality and validity aren’t determined by your relationship status, today or any other day of the year. There’s nothing wrong with spending Valentine’s Day by yourself or with friends because you have no significant other. You’re still a valid person and a damn fine bisexual.
And to those trying to find an SO, I wish you luck. You have the support of everyone here and around you regardless of the outcome.
Have a great day y’all ❤️💜💙
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!)
Reminder that you are IN NO WAY predatory for feeling attracted to the same gender. Your attraction is normal and pure and beautiful. You’re not harming anyone by feeling it.
Bisexual culture is getting weak in the knees whenever a cute guy or gal or enby tries to talk to you and this is completely normal and you are 100% valid for being a bisexual mess
Sometimes it feels like you’re all alone in the world, but remember that there truly are a lot of wonderful allies in the LGBTQ+ community. There’s a lot of bi erasure and biphobia out there, too, but things are getting better. Hang in there.
Here are some great solidarity blogs (and otherwise lovely LGBTQ+ blogs) that I suggest! Get that positivity:
(Some of these I don’t follow/haven’t been following for a long time, so please, do let me know if there’s anything problematic I should know about =))
