2. A gay guy who rightly doesn't want to get bullied for coming out of the closet.
2. Typical bisexual male: "Steve, do you have a girlfriend yet?" "Well I don't want to get beaten up or murdered for being the way I am biologically... so yeah, her name's Stacy."
1) trying to attract attention
2) not-quite out of the closet as gay/lesbian
4) about to be unfaithful in any way.
A bisexual person has the potential to be attracted to either gender. This doesn't mean that they will be incomplete without regular sex with both genders; it's more of a potential energy thing rather than kinetic. It's also an emotional/romantic thing, not just about sex.
Although some members of the gay/lesbian community look down upon bisexuals, it's just as real and valid as any other sexual orientation.
2. what bisexual isn't:
- over-sexed individuals looking to hump anything and EVERYTHING
- teenage girls that will make out with other girls so they can look "hot"
- whores (save a few of us)
-confused. there's a difference between being gay/lesbian/bisexual and being confused. teenagers just need to chillax...
"Nah, he dumped her for his new boyfriend."
"Is he gay?!"
"Nah, man, he's bisexual."
2. "Did you see her making out with that chick?!?!"
"She's bi, dude! That's so fecking hot!"
"Dude, she's straight, and her desperate attempts are obviously working..."
Prejudice faced by bisexuals :
People often think it's easier to be a bisexual girl then a bisexual man but this is simply not true. As a bisexual girl I face just as many prejudices as guys. It's thought by some that a bisexual girl has it easier as some men find bisexual females attractive, but honestly this doesn't make it any easier. This leads to the sexualization of bisexual females and the stereotype that we're all sex fiends or pretending to be bi to attract these type of men. This is not to say, that men don't face prejudice too. I'm just trying to make the point that both women and females face biphobic behaviour. Some people say that bisexuals are people who are really gay or straight, that are saying their bi to get attention or avoid coming out as gay.
Positive things about being bisexual :
Once you accept your sexuality it's a great feeling and allows you to stop pushing down feelings you may have once tried to supress. Also, both guys and girls are amazing so if you're attracted to both, there's no point limiting yourself to one gender.
eg. That male YouTuber is so hot. I'd totally bang him.
eg. She's really fit. Her red lipstick and long socks turn me on.
eg. I have a crush on a guy from my class I'd love to date him.
eg. I miss my ex-girlfriend but I have to move on and find someone knew.
Example of the type of conversation a bi person can get into since many people will assume you're straight or gay. They don't consider that you could like both. (I wish people irl were as accepting as B and C are in this when they finally realise A is bi) :
Everybody (all girls) : *talking about 'hot' males*
Person A (bi one) : Yeah, isn't Toby hot.
Person B : Totally.
Person A : Yeah and Sophie's also really attractive. I'd totally date her.
Person C : But, you're a girl...
Person A : Yeah and?
Person B : So you're a lesbian? But you just called a guy hot.
Person A : Toby is hot, though.
Person C : So you're straight?
Person A : No, I like both genders. I'm bisexual.
Person B : Oh, I get it.
Person C : That makes sense. I never thought of that. Cool.
