ive been bisexual before the word even materialized in my life. always knew my attraction strayed from merely men, that women would be my priority in life. thatd i go on to date more woman then men and question my gender all throughout it, my sexuality, who i truly was as a nonbinary bisexual who was ashamed to admit it. even now, i wear my bisexuality on my sleeve (admittedly; only in online spaces. being called a faggot and dyke at the assumption of such a horrible, tragic thing (bisexuality), does numbers to ones health. i cant go through with being outted irl again. one day, i can hope..) yet it feels embarrassing to say. i cant mutter the word to myself without the internal second hand embarrassment; like i know its a long running joke and that maybe, i wasnt bisexual. just another straight girl assuming the role of wlw for bonus oppression points. then i turn to online lgbt spaces, praying, begging, pleading, to be rewarded with the love and warmth of both bisexuals and accepting lgt's. though only in small doses; at convenient times, when woke points need to be rewarded for making it seem like they care for bisexuals. only to turn around and be vilified, staked at the slightest disappointment from bisexuals who are exhausted of inter-community rampant biphobia that runs like a violent river. to be shot down and spoken over when discussing the veiled hatred and misunderstanding of bisexuality. as a trans bisexual, i may as well be invisible. only a prop to be manipulated and thrown into the scene when good publicity is needed. bisexuals have been failed by our community. ive been failed by my lg siblings. ive been lied to, hurt, thrown out to the curb for expressing concern for closested biphobes showing their true colors at the slightest inconvenience with one of us. i truly only feel safe in the light, love, and solidarity with bisexuals. they love me as i love them. we fight and care for one another, something lgt's haven't offered. i beg everyone to do better, for us, for the sexuality so beatened and scapegoated. fight for your bisexual siblings as we do you. do better.bisexuals love all regardless of gender bounds. we've never been tied to deviancy, confusion, or want to be oppressed. we want solidarity. allyship. stop showing your asses with the deep-rooted hatred for bisexuality and listen to us. especially to trans bisexuals, bisexuals of color. shut the fuck up and walk with us. its so shameful to see a community fight its own. uplift the forgotten, the invisible people. exclusion & festishization isnt and will never been a privilege for bisexuals. it only proves youd rather lump us with heterosexuals then realize bisexuality as a whole, nuanced sexuality. just do better.
