Op-ed: My Bi Choice »

There are way more examples out there these days for young women trying to figure themselves out than there were in 1997. Still, I know that some 13-year-old black girl is Googling “Can you like girls and boys?” I want her to know that she can. And it’s completely all right. She’s not crazy. She’s not the only one with a crush on her female best friend and her male lab partner. Her feelings are valid, and no one can take those feelings away from her.”

Okay, so I missed making comics alright? I brought out a new t-shirt at manchester expo and people went nuts over it, inspiring me to come up with an entire series of characters, and comics to go with them. 

Here’s the t-shirt that started this whole mess:

I’m sure you’ve all heard the tired old “bisexual means you only like men and women!” or even worse, “only CIS men and women!” These definitions, as I’m sure we’re aware, are total bullshit. (And super problematic on top) 

Since I complied this list for a reblog, I thought it might be nice to make it it’s own post as well, so we can get it in the tags. Ready to learn how actual bisexuals actually define bisexuality? 

Here we go:

There you go. This definition has been in use by nearly all major bisexual organizations for decades. :) 

A few nice links:

Bi Resource.Net has a whole page on “what is bisexuality”, but the quote I like most from (from Robyn Orch) is “I call myself bisexual because I acknowledge in myself the potential to be attracted, romantically and/or sexually, to people of more than one sex, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree.” 

The Bisexual Index likewise has a whole page on the topic. They conclude with “Bisexuality isn’t more complicated than that - “attraction to more than one gender”.” 

Bialogue is much more to the point, stating:  ”Bisexuals = people who can [love] people of same gender as themselves + can [love] people of different genders/gender presentations from themselves” 

The Bisexuality Report (Which was a collaboration between BiUK AND the Bisexual index) goes REALLY specific with “Bisexuality generally refers to having attraction to more than one gender. It is a broad term which may include the following groups and more:
●● People who see themselves as attracted to ‘both men and women’.
●● People who are mostly attracted to one gender but recognize this is not exclusive.
●● People who experience their sexual identities as fluid and changeable over time.
●● People who see their attraction as ‘regardless of gender’ (other aspects are more important in determining who they are attracted to).
●● People who dispute the idea that there are only two genders and that people are attracted to one, the other, or both” 

International Spectrum has a whole list of definitions and defines bisexual as “A person who is attracted to both people of their own gender and another gender. “ 

The Bisexual Resource center says “The BRC uses bisexual as an umbrella term for people who recognize and honor their potential for sexual and emotional attraction to more than one gender”
