Top 10 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

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.

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.

I don't feel the need to pick a side. I'm perfectly happy with who I am

2 Being bisexual is just a phase
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 Bisexuals are attracted to all genders equally

This isn't true for me. I actually have a preference to girls but I'll still date boys

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

5 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.

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

7 Bisexuals are faking it for attention

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

8 Bisexuals are always horny
9 Bisexuals are cheaters
10 Bisexuality isn’t real

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

It is real, indeed

The Contenders
11 Bisexuals only like two genders

Bisexuality is a whole, fluid identity. Do not assume that bisexuality is binary or dougamous in nature; that we must have "two" sides or that we MUST be involved simultaneously with both genders to be fulfilled human beings. In fact, don't assume that there are only two genders." - the Bi Manifesto, Anything That Moves (1990)

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.

Read the bi manifesto

12 Bisexuals are transphobic

Just because some aren't attracted to non-binary people doesn't mean they are transphobic.

13 Bisexuals are pansexual
