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.
If anyone has any questions they want answered, I’m gonna hang around for a while longer so feel free to send asks. x
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.
Hi, after growing up thinking I was straight, at 20 I started falling for a girl. We've now been dating for almost a year but I'm still having trouble coming to terms with my sexuality. I love my girlfriend more than anything but I constantly feel like a fraud, it took me so long to start figuring things out, and I'm not sure if have yet, and I still struggle with labelling myself as bi, do you have any advice?
I understand what you’re going through. I’ve also figured out my sexuality kind of late compared to others, especially since you usually hear these stories like “I’ve known since I was in the womb! I came out of the womb holding a pride flag!”. Which, you know, that’s great, but it can make you feel kind of bad for not knowing right away.
And you know what? It’s okay you didn’t know right away. It’s okay it took you some time to figure it out. For most people I know, including myself, we all had this sort of a *moment* that we were like….oh….I like this person of the same gender…well…this is new.
That moment happens at 6 for some, and it happens at 20 for others. Both are equally valid!
And I honestly think if you go back in time and look at some of the things you did as a child, you’ll probably find traces of your sexuality shining through here and there. And don’t freak out even if you don’t, that doesn’t make you a fraud.
TL,DR: It doesn’t matter how long it takes you to figure out your sexuality. We get asks from people in their 40s who have just figured it out, and they’re all equally valid.
I bet you and your gf look cute together! x
Shoutout to all my fellow LGBTQ+ folks that have to deal with their relatives’ homophobia/biphobia/transphobia etc. around the holidays. Hang in there and always remember – People that don’t accept you the way you are don’t matter. Family or not. I’m sending positive vibes your way and I believe you can get through this.
I know this is a bi positivity blog, but this time of year can be hard for everyone. Let’s end this year on a supportive note. Merry christmas and happy holidays!
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.
