Hi, I'm a young bisexual in need of guidance. I've had this friend since kindergarten, I started to come out to friends but not family, I came out at a great time it just came up naturally in conversation one of my friends asked if i was single or if I had a boyfriend, I said I'm not single but I don't have a boyfriend either he figured out what that meant he asked if I was gay and I explained that I was bi and what it meant he yelled eww just pick a side
Jesus, that’s rude. Like, are we as a people just gross or something? Does bisexuality really warrant an “Ewwww”? Look, since he’s an old friend, I think you should keep trying to explain it to him so he’ll understand that we can’t just “pick a side”. If he refuses, well… You may have to just sever ties with him. It’ll be hard, especially since you’ve known each other for so long, but if his remarks make you uncomfortable then you might have to take action. And who knows, there’s a good chance that if he realizes the effect biphobia has, he’ll stop.
