So I have something to say that is near and dear to my heart, and I cannot keep it in any more.
Another girl who goes to my school and I were talking about sexual orientations, and I happened to mention that I was bisexual myself (she is a lesbian,) When I said this, she looked at me and said “You’re about as bi as I am straight.”(Meaning, she’s extremely gay and I’m extremely straight)
When I asked her what she meant, she said that I “just don’t look bisexual”
Needless to say, my feelings were very hurt.
I told her that I never once thought that she of all people would tell me that I don’t know what I want and that I am simply not bi.
I asked her what the fuck a bisexual looks like???
I proceeded with, “you’re fucking staring at a bisexual girl, WHO DOESNT have to put up with people of her own community tearing her down and saying "well are you really, though?”“
I told her that she had no right to tell me that as a member of my own community and above and beyond that, it’s not up to her to decide whether or not I am who I say I am.
I told that girl off, and let me tell you. She NEVER EVER will even THINK about erasing someone’s identity again.
SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY. YOU HAVE ENOUGH FLACK COMING FROM THE STRAIGHTIES.
