I hate stereotypes

Being a bisexual is hard, for me anyway. Everyone ignores the fact that being bi and gay are different, and say that I only like guys. When they do actually acknowledge that I am bi, they always say that I would just have sex with anyone. Just because I am not straight doesn't mean I'll just go down on everybody. I have my preferences for both genders. I actually think of myself as very selective of the people I have a crush on. I just hate when I get called gay, because I'm not. No offense to gays, but I dont like being called something I'm not. I also hate when they say I'd just f*ok anyone. It's so AGGRAVATING

I havent experienced this, but i get ya. The people who are like 'oh so you're half gay then? a bit straight?' no... 'oh so you basically like anyone then?' no... I have specific things i like about females and males. End of.

I'm bi and female, and swing more to females, I want a girlfriend, but I bet that'll be a 'so you're gay then?' thing... no, i just happen to have a girlfriend, doesnt mean im gay thanks you.

Hey everyone,

Eugh yeah, bi-erasure is REAL and unfortunately, so many people don't understand bisexuality and sometimes without even meaning to they can be really insensitive.

 

Have a read over this article from our blog, he touches on this really well - https://www.ditchthelabel.org/i-am-a-bisexual-man/

 

Also this one is real talk - https://www.ditchthelabel.org/10-things-never-say-bisexual/

hey!! i'm bi myself, and although I've never personally heard these comments before, I can only imagine the anger you felt. Bi - erasure is a real problem and it makes bi people feel like their feelings are invalidated. I hate when people, especially straight, act like they know bisexuality better. Like, bruh??? You're not alone on feeling this way.

Yes!! There are 3 types, and people just always say it's either straight or gay. Bruv, I literally just said I'm BISEXUAL. BI - "both", smh.

1. Bi but swings more to the opposite sex

2. Bi but swings more to the same sex

3. Bi and likes both equally
