if you’re attracted to people of the same gender, homophobia affects you

it’s not some kind of exclusive gay-only term that needs to be replaced because bi people exist, it already includes us because it refers to prejudice against same-sex attraction/relationships and the people who experience them

Except we still get erased by gay and lesbian people. Biphobia is different because it affects all of our attractions, beyond only the same sex attractions we hold.

Consider the following, knowing it’s only looking at the biphobic shit I’ve dealt with (parenthesis mark another kind of phobic):

  • "People like you are responsible for AIDS spreading from the gay population"

-If I’m with an opposite gender partner I get:

  • "It was just a phase"
  • "But I thought you liked same gender people"
  • "Wow you’re greedy"
  • "Can’t you just pick?"
  • "Are you gonna have a threesome?"
  • "I don’t know if I can handle that you’ve been with same gender people before"
  • "Are you going to leave me for a same gender person?"
  • (If the person happens to be trans, there’s a whole other set of transphobia to deal with)

-If I’m with a same gender partner I get:

  • "Oh, now you’re a lesbian"
  • "But I thought you liked opposite gender people"
  • "Wow you’re greedy"
  • "Can’t you just pick?"
  • "Are you gonna have a threesome?"
  • "I don’t know if I can handle that you’ve been with opposite gender people before"
  • "Are you going to leave me for an opposite gender person?"
  • (If the person happens to be trans, there’s a whole other set of transphobia to deal with)
  • "But you’ll settle down with a good opposite gender person soon, right?"
  • (insert homophobic slurs here)

-If I’m with a genderfluid/genderqueer person I get:

  • "Finally found the right blend, huh?"
  • "Couldn’t pick?"
  • (insert queerphobic slurs here)

Because I’m bisexual, I’m expected to constantly cheat and to have to be in relationships with all the types of people I’m attracted to. I’m teased, bullied, and harassed because of my orientation, and regardless of what kind of relationship I’m in. It’s different from homophobia because biphobia paints me as a cheating, confused, wishy-washy wh*re who can’t even decide what she wants, and if I’m polyamorous, all the worse.

I know all LGBTQ+ people get the Jezebel stamp, because we break social rules around sex, but sometimes I really really REALLY want to scream about the particular way it’s twisted for bisexual slurs.

Yes, I am affected by homophobia, but biphobia has a special brand of hatred too. Please don’t ignore the unique needs of my community.

do you think that we need to replace the word homophobia with the word biphobia or some other word? no? then you’re not at odds with my post

also, as i thought i made clear by referring to “bi people” as “us,” i’m bi, so

Well, that’s embarrassing… I’m sorry. I got all riled up and totally missed your point. I also think that while homophobia does affect bi folks, it’s important to note it’s not the only phobia that affects us.

gunlust:

giving trans women roles to cis men 

  • robs trans women actors (who can’t get cis women roles) and gives those roles to cis men who already have an enormous amount of roles and opportunities
  • reinforces the false idea that trans woman are somehow equivalent or analagous to cis men in costume 

like really thats all there is to it. theres nothing you can say that justifies this practice

Your mental health comes before school baby, always. If its midnight, and you have an exam the next day but your hands have been shaking for the past hour and a half and you’re not so sure you want to be alive anymore, pull out that carton of Ben and Jerry’s and afterwards, go the fuck to bed. So what if you get a 68% on the exam the next day? You took care of yourself and at the end of the day that will always come before a high test score. To hell with anyone who tells you differently.
