Be bisexual+ your way.  No one should judge how you express your bisexuality, including yourself.

Written across it in white, in a variety of fonts are the words, “You are allowed to have a preference, both romantically and sexually, and still be bisexual.  Your bisexuality isn’t lessened by your current partner nor your past experience(s).  It’s your life – you and only you are in charge of your label.”

Ask Anna: I thought I was bisexual, but am I actually a lesbian?

Ask Anna: I thought I was bisexual, but am I actually a lesbian?:

bisexual-community:

We accept that a person can enjoy cake and pie (and ice cream and macarons, whoever those people are), yet, it’s harder for us to accept a view of sexuality as expansive … Basically, our desires can incorporate far more options if only we’d allow it.

However, we do live in a culture that seeks to dismiss, downplay and deny bisexuality.

I’m wondering if you are (perhaps unconsciously) feeling this pressure to “pick a side already!” As a bisexual+ in a long-term relationship with a woman, I am quite familiar with this pressure, as well as the many struggles and stereotypes that the bisexual+ label is yoked to.

Rather than ask yourself “Am I really bi+ or really a lesbian?” I suggest you work on accepting the complex and contradictory parts of yourself—to revel in them. Because those tensions and ambiguities are what define the complex topography of you. And life, generally.

“Yes, of course “Passing Privilege” is a “thing”. But given that being (White) Cis and Straight is…”

Yes, of course “Passing Privilege” is a “thing”.

But given that being (White) Cis and Straight is the current presumed default, most Queer people accidentally “benefit” from it most of the time. However *somehow* it is only Bisexual+ and Trans/Enbee people who get “victim blamed” for allegedly “benefiting” from it.

Shout Out 2 All Bisexual+ People

Shout out to the bisexuals out here slutting it up. Shout out to the bisexuals who enjoy threesomes (or foursomes+) and take advantage of those opportunities. Much love to the polyamorous bisexuals and the bisexuals who say they’re bi-curious and those who don’t like sex at all.

Glory be to the trans, gender non-conforming and nonbinary bisexuals. Y’all foine AF.

Hugs to the bisexual+ women/femmes who leave their lesbian partners and eventually end up with male partners and vice versa. Relationships of all orientations end and don’t let anyone make you feel guilty for getting out or for moving forward with whomever you please. It’s your life. Fuck their judgment.

Bowing deep to all my black and brown bisexuals who have been shining in every way since humanity was a thing. Sending prayers of protection to all my immigrant and refugee bisexuals, restorative justice to my indigenous bisexuals and two-spirit folks, profound respect and recognition to all the elder bisexuals who got us here, and access to every single differently-abled bisexual on this planet.

Protection and healing to all the closeted bisexuals who feel like they have to use gay, lesbian or straight labels to survive. We’re here for you when and if ever you decide to take the glorious and terrifying leap.

Love to the bisexual+/pansexual/polysexual/omnisexual/asexual/biromantic/aro/fluid/no label/queer/questioning/OMG-I-don’t-know-sexuals just trying to find their way. Shout out to all the bisexuals under the vast bi+ umbrella who feel like a more specific label suits them a little better.

Love and light to the bisexuals who will hold onto their bi+ label and you’ll have to pry it from their cold dead hands. Bi+ is not binary (or transphobic) and pan is not sanctimonious (or transphobic). We are a community and we had better act like one because we can’t win without each other.

Eternal love, familial bonds and transformative wisdom to all the bisexuals out here trying to live our best lives, whether we fit their dusty and falsely monolithic stereotypes at times, or nah. We are more of the queer community than anyone else and our expressions of bisexuality are not always going to look or be the same. That’s ok. Just know that when the bi+ bat signal goes up and the bat phones ring, whatever your label, or lack thereof, we had better show up and show out. For all of us.

BISEXUALS DO READ: Welcome to Bisexual Books. Here you’ll find views and reviews on books from multiple genres and for all ages from the bisexual perspective. Be warned this site contains spoilers and reviews of erotica and other sexual material.

WHY BISEXUAL BOOKS? Because literature is an integral part of community, and Because it is incredibly important for bisexual people to see bisexuals represented in the media around them, and yet Because books about bisexuals are underrepresented in mainstream as well as queer review sources,
Bisexual Books reads, reviews, and talks about bisexual authors, stories, and characters.

Just as there is no one bisexual experience, there is no one bisexual literary canon; therefore, We promote the intersectional analysis of texts, Specifically with respect to people in marginalized communities

We do this to connect bisexual people to awesome bisexual stories,
Raise awareness about negative tropes, stereotypes, and clichés,
Let publishers know that bisexual books have an audience, and
Create a place where readers can discover and share quality bisexual literature.

AUTHORS AND PUBLISHERS If you are interested in having the Bisexual Books blogging team review your book, please read our guidelines here.
