In this installment, Lauren and A.J. tackle the question of what is included in the umbrella term bisexual.
Some people claim that the term bisexual doesn’t include people who have the potential to be attracted to /[and to be] all possible genders and gender identities, *hint* bisexual includes everyone *hint*. Lauren and A.J. set the record straight … . err … ummm … set the record bi.
This blog post is part of an ongoing conversation between two bisexual activists. A.J. Walkley and Lauren Michelle Kinsey are both monogamous, bisexual, cisgender females who are in long-term relationships. A.J. is in a relationship with a cisgender male, and Lauren is in a relationship with a cisgender female.
Both A.J. and Lauren are committed to remaining visible as bisexuals in spite of society’s tendency to want to label A.J. as heterosexual and Lauren as a lesbian. Together they came up with the idea for “Bi the Bi: Two Bi Writers on Big Bi Issues" as a way to help eliminate stereotypes and bias against people in the bisexual community.
