bi flag

“The deep pink or rose stripe at the top of the flag represents the possibility of same gender attraction; the royal blue stripe at the bottom of the flag represents the possibility of opposite gender attraction and the stripes overlap in the central fifth of the flag to form a deep shade of lavender or purple, which represents the possibility of attraction anywhere along the entire gender spectrum.”

To everyone who assumes that bisexuals can only be attracted by cis males and cis females: guess what, you don’t get to define what bisexuality is for me or for any other bisexual.

EDIT: please note that this definition is actually not correct.
I made this post in 2012, when I didn’t know that much about gender, binarism etc. At the time this definition sounded right to me, but now I know that it actually relies on a binarist definition of gender (and thus not really inclusive).
What the hell is an “opposite gender”, right?


I think that the best definition of bisexuality would be:

attraction to
(1) those of the same gender as themselves
(2) those of different genders from themselves.
