Before the pride month ends, I would like to share problems that every bisexual faces.
As you all think you know, bisexuals are supposed to be the ones who are confused — but, silly me, I’m all sure of who I am, so I don’t know why people say we are confused. It’s too bad there’s no reading material or videos or for a matter of fact google, available to clear up your confusion about what bisexuality is and why it’s so very real. To most of you let me tell you, we are attracted to one person at one time , not multiple people at the same time. Many people in the LGBTQ community may believe that bisexual people are too afraid to come out as gay or do not want to be with bisexual people because they think we are more likely to cheat. Bisexual people are not considered in discussions about issues facing those in the LGBTQ community because many see bisexuals as having a “hetero” privilege when they are in opposite-gender relationships, or they are seen as “posers” when they are in a same-sex relationship. But these are just myth. We are NOT confused just attracted to more than one gender. We are attracted to the person not the gender, and I feel it’s a completely valid explanation.
But the world needs to always create problems, and the biggest in this is that we often do not feel like we belong in the straight or queer community and therefore often feel like we cannot get the help we need. Nonetheless the B in LGBTQ stands for bi and we should be proud of it. There’s more awareness in today’s society about the B, but it’s clear we still have a long way to go.
So to conclude, irrespective of your sexual preference, let your love flow with no restrictions and boundaries, let your heart discover it’s attractions and trust me you will know. Just don’t let your emotions be caged up. Have the courage to come out, because darling it’s 2020, the world might just end, just kidding!! Don’t let society decide your attractions, don’t be threatened by their judgments, do what your heart says, you just have one life to embrace.
