I’m bisexual and I’ve been in a lovely exclusive relationship for ~6 years. Given this, I’ve heard a lot of stuff during the years like: - You’re not bi, you’re straight.
- Bisexual people are just confused.
- Do you cheat on your boyfriend often?
- People are bi because they’re never satisfied with one partner.
- You’re just greedy.
A person’s sexual orientation isn’t defined by their current relationship, it depends on who are they attracted to in any given moment. It’s not confusion, it’s just a preference, as valid as any. If you like pies it’s perfectly ok to like other desserts and no one should tell you otherwise. And the way you like people is your decision only.
I’m bisexual. I’ve dated men and I’ve dated women. I’m more attracted to women, but ~6 years ago I started dating a guy who became the only person I want to be with even though he’s not of my preferred gender because of who he is. I am not and I have never been confused, and my sexual orientation has never been an issue on my relationship.
Bisexuality is a real orientation. We’re not greedy or confused hetero/gay people. We’re not promiscuous by nature. We’re just people with a different preference. And we’re all not the same, just as not all straight women like the same types of men. My experience is not the same as everyone’s, but is is valid as anyone’s. We should seriously stop trying to fit people in tight boxes and just keep living and loving freely.
This is not a phase.
I’m bi and proud. 🏳️🌈 #bi #bisexual #bipride #bisexualpride #lgbt #lgbti #lgbtiq #bierasure #notaphase #queer #biwomen #pride #happypride #pridemonth #loveislove #lettering #calligraphy #typography #rainbow
