Top 10 Misconceptions About BisexualsHi, 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
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
Nope, threesomes usually aren't that fun.
I'm bisexual and I'm uncomfortable with the idea of having a threesome
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
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.
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
It does happen, but it's rare. Most bisexuals are actually bisexual
I wonder what people who believe this actually mean that bisexuals are making it up?
It is real, indeed
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
Just because some aren't attracted to non-binary people doesn't mean they are transphobic.
