Top Ten Misconceptions About Bisexuals

Hi, guys! Since it’s Pride Month, I decided to make a list of myths about bisexuality that are not true. I feel like a lot of people believe these myths, so I decided to share my take on them
The Top Ten
1 Bisexuals need to pick a side

This type of Biphobia makes no sense whatsoever. Telling a bisexual to pick a side is like claiming your sexuality is a choice. Are you asking me to choose whether I'm straight or gay? That's outright unatrual.

My parents ask me such mindless and ignorant questions related to which gender I like the most. "What do you like? Boys or Girls?" Pisses me off every time.

Gay people who say this are so weird. If we can "pick a side" can't you chose to be straight so you won't be oppressed? - RoseWeasley

Ikr. If they were bisexual they would know that's not true.

2 Being bisexual is just a phase

Bisexuality is definitely not a phase

My parents said this to me when I came out to them, even though it isn’t true

3 All bisexuals want a threesome

Nope, threesomes usually aren't that fun.

I’m bisexual and I’m uncomfortable with the idea of having a threesome

4 Only females can be bisexual

As a proud male bisexual myself, I stand tall with the rest of my bisexual friends and the other LGBT friends I have.

That's far from the truth. There are certainly many men you can find that are bisexual.

If anyone even thinks about believing this, their IQ is 0.

Some of my male friends are bisexual

5 Bisexuals are attracted to all genders equally

This isn't true. I'm bisexual, but I have crushes on 3 boys and 1 girl

This isn’t the case for most bisexuals. For example, I prefer to date girls

Maybe, Maybe not.

That's pansexual - RoseWeasley

6 Bisexuals fall in love with every person they see

That stereotype is just ridiculous. I don’t even know why someone could believe it. If I fell in love with every person I saw, it would be exhausting

This isn't true. Out of all TV shows and movies I've ever watched, all the people I have ever met, I have crushes on 3 boys, and 1 girl

Who thought of this.

7 Bisexuals are always horny

I'm only horny at like 2am get off my back please

this one kinda applies to me 😂

8 Bisexuals are faking it for attention

Bruh. If you see them having sexual interaction with both genders, they're bi.

It does happen, but it’s rare. Most bisexuals are actually bisexual

9 Bisexuals are cheaters

I’m bisexual and I think cheating is wrong

10 Bisexuality isn’t real

I wonder what people who believe this actually mean that bisexuals are making it up?

People actually believe this?

It is real, indeed

The Contenders
11 Bisexuals only like two genders

I'm kind of unsure if this counts as a factor of your own sexuality. I mean if a woman had a crush on Sam Smith (sorry I can't think of a better example) would you really consider her anything other than heterosexual? Sorry if this comes across as rude I did not intend it that way.

Sexuality is fluid in my opinion. I think some straight people may crush on non-binary people, but they can still keep the straight label if they want to

There are only two genders. Why do we have to argue about something stupid and obvious that one side is a fact while there are people starving right now?

I guess. Like I said, there are more important things to worry about in life.

That's literally why they're called "Bisexual". They like the only 2 genders. I'm not going to start an argument though.

Pan = Attraction to all genders equally.
Bi = Attraction to 2 or more gender identities (not strictly men or women)
