“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?

pro-aspec-lesbian:

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?!

I just don’t get the logic behind this.

I have met hundreds of bisexuals and when the question of being out as bi+ on the gay scene comes up, everyone agrees: being denied a voice is bad enough but being denied our existence is appalling.

If you don’t like Mozart, it doesn’t mean some other people are lying when they say they really do. Some people really like aubergines, some people really enjoyed cross-country running at school – some people really do enjoy the things you don’t. Some people really are bisexual.

The definition is easy, it’s the prejudice that’s hard.
