Being bi

I think that being bisexual is one of the toughest things I've had to come to accept about myself.
Not because I thought it was bad or wrong. Not because my parents thought it was bad or wrong.
Not even because society thought it was bad or wrong.

Because the way that some of the LGBTQ community views bisexuals.

I've seen posts on tumblr where people in the LGBTQ community saying that bisexuals are wrong, are just looking for relationships or hiding their sexuality.

As a bisexual female in a heterosexual relationship, I feel attacked, and some seem to think that I'm hiding my sexuality behind my relationships. I love my boyfriend. Very much. I genuinely fell in love with him, and he knows I'm bisexual and doesn't care. He knows I lost my virginity to a girl and doesn't care. And if we break up I might date a girl later on.

I am bisexual.

It is a valid sexuality. And I shouldn't have to feel attacked by the some of the LGBTQ community as well as society in general.

  1. Sadly I think this idea stretches beyond the LGBT+ community. I probably see it most often from heterosexuals. The worst is "she just says that to attract boys".

    I've given up on trying to find a label that suits me after so many years. I like boys. I like girls (definitely more than boys). But bi or pan or anything just doesn't feel right. I guess I'm just queer :)
