Obligatory warning for slurs y’all. Well first a disclaimer that the majority of these slurs/insults are aimed at bi women and not all of them are just restricted to bisexuals but are primarily aimed at them, they range from mildly annoying to goddamn awful:
bihet (though this is often used against bi women specifically)
breeder (alledgedly intented to be used on straight people yet almost excuslively used against bisexuals and other minorities, funny how that happens)
AC/DC (not the band, but the type of switch)
sexual dyslexic (points for added ableism)
Ones mainly aimed at bi women:
Of course bisexuals get all the other homophobic and lesbophobic slurs aimed at them too, and get their community labels used against them as if they are slurs such as “bi-curious”. These are all the ones I can think of atm, if anybody has more please add.
again usually aimed at bi women
not only you don’t believe my sexualtiy, you think I need to be in an altered state to actually express parts of it
also LUG (lesbian until graduation) and hasbian
Tbey’re are very often used at bi women who have been in relationships with women in the past and are currently in relationships with men. Because object (or orientation) permanence is not a thing, apparently.
Totally forgot about barsexual, I really hate that word because it is often accompanied by sex-shaming and is used to force bisexuals out of lgbt spaces by painting them as predatory and inconsistant.
Also BUG (bisexual until graduation) is used alongside LUG.
It’s seriously disconcerting the way over half of those are aimed specifically against bi women.
The other day I was sitting in a common room, and the only straight person in the room suddenly pipes up and says “wow. I feel like such a minority right now.” Everyone looks up at her confused because there wasn’t any conversations going on at the time, we were all just sitting there in comfortable silence.
She continued: “I’m the only normal one here, aren’t I?” The began pointing at everyone, “gay, gay, lesbian, lesbian, gay, experimenting, experimenting, lesbian, experimenting … I’m the only normal one.”
The three people who she called ‘experimenting’ were two openly bisexual girls, and one who had clearly told her in confidence, as they looked shocked and hurt that this girl had said that, and Noone else knew. One of the bi girls said “excuse me? We’re not experimenting. We know what we like, we just happen to like both.”
Straight girl then got offended and proclaimed that she was ‘only joking’ when she realized that she had effectively pissed off every single person in the room, told us to cam down and ‘learn to take a joke’, then continued on saying that bisexual isn’t even a ‘real’ sexuality, so we had no right to get offended. Especially not those in the group who were ‘proper gay’.
It’s people like this who make bisexuality seem like such a shameful thing, and make people not want to admit it. But it was good to see the queer community standing together and during her down!
I’m going to say something super controversial here: billionaires shouldn’t exist
Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.
It’s not in the Olympics because it wasn’t invented and doesn’t get performed by men. If it did, we would already have it in there. Also many people seem to forget your’re “not allowed” to be a professional in whatever it is you’re competing with, which is really fucking stupid.
just reminding everyone i have an ask box
don’t shit on people for having self confidence and being happy with their appearance like how bitter are you
I wasn’t bullied at school, I was picked on - I think most people are picked on at school at some point. But it really… it feels like a great cause to be involved with because bullying can change how people grow up and what decisions they make, and it’s important to know that they’ve got a voice. And if you are slightly different, or - you know, Kieren and In The Flesh, it explores otherness and being different, so for me the cause - the antibullying charity is linked with that, it feels like a good thing to be involved with.
