“I want to stop talking about it completely now and find myself a husband. It’s a true struggle. All the chick flicks that didn’t make sense to me, I now understand – Sex and the City is real!”
When identity terms get thrown in the pressure cooker.
Is Willow’s insistence on identifying as gay, not bi, a biphobic or bi-erasing gesture? Or is she actually something separate, something more progressive and interesting than bi erasure – a strong, dynamic character whose sexual orientation is genuinely fluid?
The New York Times takes it upon itself to discover whether bisexuals can be proven to exist, and comes up with a treasure trove of flawed research and ill-advised assumptions along the way.
So you fell in love with a girl and it upended your life with family, kids and religion. What now?
Oh hey, the Bisexual Resource Center wants to talk to you about issues affecting the bisexual community and how you can get involved.
With how it played into the “But Not Too Bi” trope – bi characters who have a bias toward one gender or the other – The L Word flipped a common heterosexist script in media. But in doing so, it still excluded actual bi people from its world.
“An LA family with serious boundary issues have their past and future unravel when a dramatic admission causes everyone’s secrets to spill out.”
On last night’s episode of the CW show “Arrow,” super hero Black Canary was revealed to be queer.
Recently, GO Magazine published an interview with Romi Klinger of The Real L Word regarding the current state of her relationships, her career, and the controversy surrounding her sexuality. What does one complicated public figure representing bisexuality mean for the rest of us?
In my mind, to fail at LGBT inclusion in fiction is to have a failure of imagination, a lazy lack of understanding concerning the world outside of one’s self. To intentionally choose to tell a story about a real LGBT person and then exclude their queer identity is a failure on an entirely different level.
Are you interested in seeing this, but don’t really want to sift through 50+ episodes just to find the cute bits? You’re in luck! I mined this series and all its queer gold and put the shiniest pieces in this post.
It seems that there was perhaps more going on in the Union Jack-emblazoned double decker Spice Bus than our fragile teenage brains could have handled at the time. Who can say what the heart wants, what it really really wants?
Perhaps could be more accurately titled “what bitches think about bisexuals.”
Oftentimes it’s a challenge for bisexuals to simply have their identities perceived as valid, and our government’s acknowledgement that we are a real community with unique challenges is a huge step towards eradicating that misconception.
Here you’ll find academic books and nonfiction books documenting the experiences of bisexual people, fiction or memoir that depicts bisexual people and a few online resources!
“Promise me one thing — if you choose to [print the question "have you had a relationship with another woman?"] just put three dots as my response. That’s it.”
Can you be a bisexual Congresswoman, and not have your sexuality define you or your politics? Apparently not, if WaPo’s Manuel Roig-Franzia has anything to say about it.
“The internet is full of weirdos, and currently when you list yourself as bisexual you’re essentially signing yourself up to meet twice as many of those weirdos.”
There is a “New York Magazine” issue dedicated entirely to boning. Did you know? And guess what? It’s not entirely about heterosexuals in missionary position–there are so many more perspectives than that.
