some tv show writer:
this character hooks up with both men and women, and, if asked about their orientation, will always say that they "don't like labels"
rachel bloom, an intellectual:
...anyway, this is darryl whitefeather, a bisexual man who calls himself bisexual many times and comes out in a musical number called "getting bi" and plays the saxophone in front of the bi pride flag and has a boyfriend that helps him realize his orientation and the boyfriend, his friends, and his daughter instantly accept him exactly as he is
If my count is correct Gettin’ Bi features the word ‘bi’ or ‘bisexual’ 19 times, and the song includes a giant bi pride flag. That doesn’t make up for the rampant bi erasure in both real life and media but I’ll be damned if it’s not healing as hell.
frankly, if the han solo movie isn’t about his and lando’s tumultuous romantic relationship unfolding and ultimately failing while they bungle smuggling jobs and chewie saves their asses, I kind of do not care
It makes me so sad all the hate that Rachel bloom is getting for beaing on bill Nye cause of that song about sexuality. Like all i want to do is go the that song was a tad cringey but don’t hate on her and watch getting bi instead cause that’s an awesome song about sexuality. Like she would have been so much better off just sing getting bi on that show.
As an asexual biromantic, relationships can be scary. My ex boyfriend was bi, so he accepted and supported that part of me, but I wouldn’t say he was exactly respectful of my asexuality. That relationship scared me because I was worried that any other relationship would be similar to it: me being in uncomfortable situations, really just trying to make my partner happy. My current boyfriend (pictured) is straight, but he accepts my entire identity and tries his best to understand it all. I came out to him before we were dating, so it wasn’t as scary as it might have been if we had been in a relationship then. He doesn’t completely understand asexuality, but he does understand that I am different and that I have boundaries that may not be the same as other girls he’s been with. He makes sure I am not uncomfortable any time we are even near each other. So, to any a-spec out there worried about finding someone who is accepting: you will find them, people are more understanding and respectful than you may think, it will be ok.
