Being bisexual is not a phase.
It doesn't mean I'm confused.
It doesn't mean I sleep around.
It doesn't mean I'm a lesbian.
It doesn't mean I'm straight.
Because of my gender presentation, most of the world assumes I'm straight. Unless I'm seen giving PDA to my girlfriend, then the assumption is that I'm gay. This is bisexual erasure. And I get it. It's a change of mindset away from the hetero norm. And change is hard. But we all have the capacity to do hard things, promise.
I want to also be careful not to alienate my gender non-conforming, fluid and trans friends. I know that gender is not binary and I choose to use a definition of bisexuality that does not mean I am attracted to men and women, but that I am attracted to folks of my gender and folks not of my gender.
Today is International Bisexual Visibility Day, or something like that. Just adding a little visibility and love to the bisexual community. A little normalizing of the Big B of the LGBTQIA+. I see you. And I want you to see me.
