because we were monogamous and it just never came up and now she saw a tiktok of me talking about gay shit and is one unhappy camper because she believes people are either straight or gay (which is news to me as she is pretty progressive and smart af normally)

thank you for attending my ted talk

dat biphobia yo :hsd:

You see it all the time even in nominally progressive circles. :sad2:
she was real upset over our break up and didnt talk to me for about a year and a half so Im hoping she just got freaked out and is reacting poorly in the moment. shell probably come around because she is a smart lady. Also I can understand why people dont like bi people so Im not ever really mad over it but this was just uncomfortable.

Im not justifying it Im just saying I can understand why. A friend of mine explained why, emotionally not logically, he had feelings about bisexuality and it was just that he had to grow up being exposed and dealing with shit while bi people could choose to avoid that stress by dating someone heteronormative. He doesnt have a problem with bi people and he and I are good friends (though if I had to identify I just say queer because Im not sure bisexuality encompasses it plus why bother explaining) he was just explaining why he has this emotional baggage.

I bet if you suggest a devil's threesome she'd be right over.

Yeah, I've seen that and gotten some of that flack myself from past friends/relations. I don't agree with it, but I can see why they think that way.

Honestly though, the only way of "avoiding that stress" is to remain closeted. Cause your average homophobe doesn't see the difference between a bi person and a gay person other than to use them as an example of sexuality being a "choice", which it really really isn't. I've always seen that argument the same way that I see the whole "sexual preference" argument.
