“We’re taught at such an early age to be against the communists, yet most of us don’t have the faintest idea what communism is. Only a fool lets somebody else tell him who his enemy is.”
Bisexuals is more strictly man and woman oriented. Pansexual doesn’t see gender, and love someone for who they are, not what’s between their legs
oh my god no
I’m bisexual. I’m attracted to women, non-binary people, and agender people. I’m not attracted to men. My sexuality has fuck all to do with someone’s genitalia because no one falls in love with genitals they fall in love with people???
Bisexuality is attraction to two or more genders
Pansexuality is attraction to all genders.
One can be both bisexual and pansexual.
Get this biphobic trash out of the tags thank you.
I met a girl I went to school with on the bus yesterday, and she gushed to me about how much she loves yaoi because “they’re so cute and you want them to be together squee”
but I’m pretty sure she’s a massive homophobe?
Like I mentioned I was at a pride event that evening and she completely shut down in terms of conversation, and seemed noticably uncomfortable.
This is where I realise I’m not big into celebrity culture and know almost no one.
96. Favourite actress?
Laverne Cox probably. I really really hope she gets more roles in popular media c: OR Tatiana Maslany because her talent levels are through the roof it’s phenomenal. Like h ow?????
97. Favourite actor?
Morgan Freeman? I seriously have no clue.
30. Do you ever want to get married?
Yeah, I do, mainly in the sense that I’d like to have a big party in which I get at least two pretty dresses to wear. I don’t really think marriage is like the pinnacle display of love and commitment or anything. It’s just a social event where you dress up and say, “hey I really like this person” and then get financial benefits because of it?
60. Ever won a competition? For what?
I won a giveaway by bisexual-books and it was amazing I was so happy. c: They sent me a bunch of pins and a comic and all sorts.
90. Name a person you love?
120. Are you afraid of the dark?
No, and I never have been really? I once had a babysitter who refused to closde my bedroom door and left the hall light on in case I got scared, despite me making quite a big fuss about how that was ANNOYING AS SHIT.
150. Get the closest book next to you, open it to page 42, what’s the first line on that page?
It’s just a big advert for Belfast pride 2014
"THE 2014 STREET PARTY" yeaaaah loads of drunken cis gay men and absolutely fucking no one else woooo i love pride yeaaaaaah.
“hella cute questions”
Well this is kind of a long-ish story so sit back.
When I was around 8 I realised I liked girls in the same way I thought I liked boys. I thought they were beautiful. But pretty much as soon as I realised I completely shut that down, because I knew being a lesbian wasn’t a good thing based on comments from family and society at large. It took me another 7 years to even allow myself to consider that I might be attracted to the same gender again, and within that time I was incredibly biphobic and homophobic because I’d internalised a lot of self-hatred and general societal attitudes towards non-cishets.
At 15 I cautiously adopted the label ‘bicurious’, and at 16 I came out to myself as bisexual after a brief fling with the pansexual label, which just didn’t fit. I’ve always had a very strong preference for women though, which is something I’ve rejected for a long time because I thought it made me a ‘bad bi’.
(Now you probably won’t have had the same experience as me, but this is just how I came to my current understanding of my sexuality. A lot of people identify as hetero for decades and then change their minds or realise they weren’t, and that’s 100% okay too.)
It wasn’t until a few days ago though that I realised I wasn’t attracted to men in the same way I’m attracted to any other gender or lack thereof. I can recognise men I think are good looking, but I don’t want to be romantic or sexual with them, and imagining it is either very very difficult or just makes me feel nervous and uncomfortable. Heteronormativity is so insidious and pervasive that I didn’t recognise how different my feelings for men were, until I had a number of negative experiences with them that made me question it. I’m really upset that my internalised lesbophobia and heterosexism kept me from realising this for almost 4 years, but what can you do?
The only advice I can give is to imagine yourself in relationships with various people or various genders. Imagine your dream wedding, or imagine waking up one morning when you’re 40 and getting ready for work with your partner. Analyse how you feel when that person’s gender changes in each scenario. Also remember that your feelings about various genders are almost certainly not static. You might just like men now, and you might not, and that might change in the future for a multitude of reasons (all of which are valid!).
In any case, the bi community is completely here for you, and you’re welcome here. You don’t need to meet any criteria to identify a certain way: just think on it and let yourself identify however you feel most comfortable.
Best of luck, and I hope this helped even vaguely!!
