Bisexuals are scared of commitment. I knew going in that, like any large movement organization, they had a rocky past with both trans and bi communities, and a tendency toward centrist politics. Being intimate with someone of the same sex doesn't mean you're gay, just like being intimate with someone of the opposite sex doesn't mean you're straight — it just means you fall somewhere in the beautiful, fluid spectrum of sexuality. Bisexuals live for threesomes. While polyamory might appear more prevalent in the queer community, there is no hard data that ties polyamory more directly to bisexuals than people of any other orientation.
So to review, these are the things bisexual people are tired of hearing, to quote BuzzFeed:.
Straight people don't exist – so why do half of bisexual men fear coming out?
Being attracted to both genders doesn't have anything to do with commitment. All bisexuals are polyamorous. In no particular order, here are a few of the most tiresome lies society really needs to stop telling about bisexual people. But I thought maybe I could effect change from within. But bisexuals don't need science — or the approval of those attracted to only one gender — to prove that they exist. Too many times, I thought you might be right, that my identity was something strange, that maybe I was fooling myself about my lifetime of attraction to people across the gender spectrum.
