i say “i’m bisexual” but all you see is me holding hands with my girlfriend and you suddenly can’t hear me over “i didn’t know you were a lesbian"
I say, “i’m bisexual” but my coming out goes unheard over you telling me, “it’s just a phase, you’ll pick a side eventually"
I say, “i’m bisexual” but you can’t hear me over “oh, honey, you’re just confused, you’re too young to know for sure”
I say, “i am bisexual” but you hear “i am greedy” “i am indecisive” “i am wishy-washy”
I am bisexual and I am so fucking tired of your stereotypes and your assumptions
I am bisexual and I am valid
It’s moments like this where being an advocate pays off. My school now has a gender neutral bathroom open, and even though I’m a senior and won’t get a lot of use out of it, I know that I’m helping students in the future. Even though it’s a single stall sort of deal, since we didn’t have money to build a whole new bathroom it’s still progress. I hope that more people advocate all over so that future generations don’t have to.
• feminine straight boys that have to deal with having their sexuality being assumed or made into a joke
• feminine bi boys that have to deal with the stereotype that they use it as a cover up and are actually just gay
• feminine gay boys that have to deal with the endless stereo types and the “well obviously you’re gay” remarks
I’m here for all you beautiful boys and I think you guys are amazing and perfect.
