i’ll reblog those posts about everything needing more lesbians until my fingers fall off but as soon as the straight people and men are out of earshot i’m going to turn around and say “hey not all queer women are lesbians and acting like floods of lesbians are the paragon of queer female representation is biphobic and exclusionary and not at all representative of the majority of the queer community”

Common Myths About Bisexuality from the lovely personal memoir in a web comic format Jesus Loves Lesbians, Too by bi blogger & author Maria Burnham (writer/memoirist) and Maggie Siegel-Berele (comic artist).

Remember Bisexuals are just people who can ♥ people of SAME/SIMILAR Gender as themselves + can ♥ people of DIFFERENT Genders/Gender Presentations from themselves.

All the rest of it about must be Exactly 50%/50%; can’t be/can’t ♥ trans/genderqueer people; the 3 C’s: Confused; Closeted + sex-Crazed; must always be poly + can’t be monogamous; yadda, yadda, yada, are just hooey + nonsense made up by haters and fools.

I usually don’t reblog stuff like this because this is my art blog but this hit close to home and reminded me of so many conversations that made me feel like garbage.

It always makes me see red when I see lesbians (and gay men) treating bisexuals this way. I don’t think I can even type too much more without quickly reaching a point where I just smash my head into the keyboard.

I have heard all of the above said to me. Co-workers, exes, hook ups, acquaintances and even closest friends. Sigh… It always make me feel less of a person in terms of my sexuality. Like, whatever I am isn’t enough.

bisexual-community:

In 2011 Actor + Bisexual Rights Campaigner Alan Cumming, added his name to Bi Social Network’s "I Am Visible" bisexual awareness campaign …

Campaign organiser Adrienne Williams said, “He’s using his voice to stamp out biphobia and bi-erasure in entertainment, news and media and we are honored. If one bisexual life can be changed by showing that we are everywhere, that even in entertainment there are people like them, then all the better.”

If you’re famous and out as all hell, yet people continue to mislabel you, you might be a bisexual.
Harley Quinn and Ivy Go Canon in the new 52?

dcwomenkickingass:

Harley Quinn certainly has been considered part of queer pairing with Poison Ivy by most fans based on the animated version of the character and some moments like this from Gotham City Sirens.

In the semi-annual couple’s tournaments I’ve held Harley/Ivy is much more popular couple than Joker/Ivy.

But in the new 52 Ivy was off in Birds of Prey while Harley joined the Suicide Squad. But now with her own book, the two have been reunited and the innuendo moves into canon category.

So if you haven’t read this realize there is material from today’s comic below.

what im saying is that bisexuals, pansexual, and asexuals should all join together so we can be in the fictitious trifecta. enough people will say we’re not real and we’ll all converge together in a massive, fierce mass only spoken of in myth.  dont come near us or you too will cease to exist

Why hasn’t anyone made Triforce references yet?

thatfemmeboy:

Let me quick break it down:

Painting bisexuality as attraction to men and women and then saying that pansexuality is men, women, and trans people makes pansexuality the “magical trans friendly option weee”

No. 

Trans women are women and trans men are men and describing pansexuality as such is degendering. 

Y’ALL

#the struggle too real

You know this is put out there as a joke but this is an actual issue. If there’s anything I’ve learned over the past few years it’s that in order to exist safely within cishet feminist spaces I have to often put a footnote at the end of a statement of attraction to things like this or I am deemed the enemy and open to attack and ridicule or assumptions surrounding my beliefs and sexuality. I can’t just exist in my sexuality, I have to qualify its right to exist within cishet feminist spaces. Which is all spaces in which feminism exists, because feminism at the end of the day is governed by cishet women. Especially white cishet women. Trans women and WOC face even greater examples of exclusion than I do. None of it is right. None of it is fair. And all of it needs to be addressed.

diabeteswithowls:

why do bisexuals get asked “are you attracted to men and women 50/50 or do you like lean one way or the other?” SO FUCKING MUCH

mind your own beeswax

Actually, mine is perfectly 50/50. If I start leaning more to one side, I’ll just plain shove attractive people away when they try chatting me up. Hey, I have quotas and your perky breasts or sexy smile become invisible to me if you’re the wrong gender. I need to keep things perfectly even.

Bisexuals find themselves erased in history. Many famous people―such as Marlene Dietrich, June Jordan, Freddie Mercury, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Walt Whitman―have been labeled as lesbian or gay for their same-sex relationships, yet their long-term relationships with different-sex partners are ignored or their importance minimized. This disrespects the truth of their lives for the sake of a binary conception of sexual orientation. It also makes it more difficult for bisexuals just coming out to find role models.
