Arielle Scarcella‘s latest video, “What Lesbians Think About Bisexuals,” features several lesbians sharing really special old-fashioned stereotypical ideas about bisexual women. It’s pretty much every nightmare response you could imagine, ranging from “slutty” to “indecisive” to “unfaithful” to “greedy” to “non-existent.” While it’s true that these outrageous and faulty ideas are shared pretty openly in anonymous comments and message boards throughout the internet, it’s really disappointing (to say the least) that the stigma around biphobia remains so minimal that there are apparently at least four women eager to say them on video. As the video goes on, Arielle kinda attempts to challenge some of their perspectives and there is one girl (in a white-t-shirt) who manages to avoid saying anything too terrible — assuming you make it that far without losing your shit / faith in humanity / will to live. I think it’s safe to say that the lesbians on this video are not representative of the entire lesbian community, thus throwing the whole “what lesbians think” title into hot dispute.
The good news is that if you’re bisexual and you wanna hook up with the dreadlocked white girl prominently featured in this film, if you have a really good personality and make her laugh, she’s totally willing to overlook “the fact that [you] had a dick in [your] mouth last week”! Isn’t that sweet?!!
(Also: at one point Arielle asks, “I’ve heard that some bisexuals think they’re better in bed than lesbians?” Really? I’ve never heard anybody say that! Not have I heard any lesbians claim they’re “better in bed” than bisexuals.)
