Bisexuals = people who ♥ people of Same Gender as themselves + ♥ people of Different Genders/Gender Presentations from themselves
in a world where bisexuality was considered the norm, the literature of science and sexology would no doubt be littered with references, all in a slightly disproving tone, to All Monosexuals - be they gay, straight or lesbian — as being those with a "fixation or fetish" for only one type of gender/gender presentation or sex
When people say bisexual men will eventually be gay,
and when people say that bisexual women will eventually be straight,
what people are actually saying is that choosing men over women is inevitable.
This is patriarchy.
Okay, time to buckle down like knee-high pirate boots and bang this paper out.
It’s about biphobia in the queer community. I have to describe the problem, analyze why it exists, propose goals, and then have a concrete strategy to achieve said goals. It’s for my Foundations of Feminism class.
I know a lot of y’all have thoughtful things to say about all of the above. So if you feel like sharing, please do! I have a lot of scholarly articles and whatnot already, but a lot of you are more eloquent than I and have different insights regarding the issue. So go dump all your smart thoughts in my ask. Or not so smart. No judgement here, just blankets and Havarti on toast.
It is also worth noting that I mixed some cherry rum in my cider, so I am tipsy. If I have to work on school shit on a Friday night, I’m at least going to enjoy it as much as possible.
What will it take for the gayristocracy to realize that bisexual, lesbian, transgender and gay people are in this together we can and will move the agenda forward.
But this will not happen until public recognition of our common issues is made, and a sincere effort to confront biphobia and transphobia is made by the established gay and lesbian leadership in this country.
