Anonymous asked: I don't have cable, what's "Faking It"?
Get this! A show about two “awkward” cis white heterosexual girls pretending to be freaky lesbians so they can be popular! Because being out in high school makes you SO cool ! The get invited to all the parties now that they are lesbians! The show is a comedy too, you can laugh at many of the jokes ranging from “Does that mean I’m the butch ?” ー because you know you need one girl and one boy in ever lesbian relationship, to “I’ve need some lesbian energy in my life” ー because lesbians are fun objects, like scented candles ! The show is very quirky and I bet EVERY ally in town will be tuning to see it ! Who do you ship?
Anonymous asked: My best friends boyfriend is an asshole. When I told him and some of my friends I was bi, the first thing he says to my best friend is that she isn't allowed to change in front of me or "cuddle". Okay yes just because I swing both ways means I automatically want to sex every girl I know up. Don't get me wrong, she's pretty, but she's more like a sister to me and feeling sexually or romantically attracted to her would be really awkward. Maybe I should have just stayed in the closet damn
This is pretty common for bi girls to experience, unfortunately. I’ve had very similar experiences, where an overprotective boyfriend will tell my friend she can’t sleep over at my house anymore. It’s come from girls as well, but I’ve noticed that it’s usually guys, and I think that like most biphobia, it’s rooted in misogyny. The thought of a GIRL being able to please your girlfriend better than you is truly horrifying to a lot of guys, because (maybe subconsciously, maybe not) their worth as a man is measured by their ability to dominate and/or please their girlfriends, and they perceive women to be “less than”, so the idea of someone who is “less than” being “better” to them really hurts their pride. So that’s where I think the negative reactions come from.
bisexual hate is totally 100% rooted in heteronormative and puritanical ideas of sexual morality, so when gay and lesbian monosexuals perpetuate biphobia, they are by extension perpetuating the heteropatriarchy. if you are biphobic, the only people you’re benefiting are straight people. smash the heteropatriarchy—support bisexuals.
