Whenever bimisogynists claim that “bi women are never going to date other women! all of them will hide behind their attraction to men to avoid homophobia blah blah blah” I just have to think if they’ve ever been in love.
I am bi. I am dating a woman. Because I am dating a woman I deal with a lot of homophobia with fun things like avoiding pronouns when talking about my relationship, getting called awful things when walking down the street hand-in-hand, and practically destroying my relationship with my parents, possibly forever. It’s awful yes, but I would do it 10x over for the person I love.
There is no way I could stay away. A tiny crush turned into total infatuation which turned to love that only progresses as time goes on. I can’t keep myself from her, even if I wanted to, and there is no one, no man, woman, nor nb person, that I would rather be with, that I can see myself ever wanting to be with. Would parts of my life be easier if I was dating a guy? Probably. But I don’t care, if it doesn’t include her I couldn’t be anymore disinterested.
