  1. I enjoyed the Friends article, even though I know the show is problematic (but honestly a lot of shows are) I still watch and like it. I loved the way the author wrote about struggling with laughing with her friends while at the same time knowing it was wrong to be laughing at those jokes. Thanks for sharing!

  2. The study that PinkNews article on bi people’s workplace harassment is based on is really interesting, but the writing is a bit misleading. Obviously, the rates are WAY too high regardless, but the study found that bi men are at an increased risk compared to gay men while bi women were at a slightly decreased risk compared to LGBT women as a whole, which is more than likely skewed by horrifically high rates of sexual assault for trans women (obviously some women are both trans and bi, but they didn’t study that group specifically). They didn’t study trans men or nonbinary people (some trans men were counted, but not enough to study trans men individually), but the biggest indicator of risk for workplace sexual assault among the LGBT community, other than being a trans woman or a woman in general, was found to be being non-white/POC and/or having a disability, not identifying as bi instead of gay. Wish the article had specifically directed people’s attention toward issues facing trans and non-white bi people, or bi people with disabilities, rather than just a broad, unclear statistic.
