1. A California Werewolf in New York by & (oneshot | 16,311 | NC-17)

When Derek finally realizes that there’s nothing left for him in…

for me to be entirely comfortable as a bi woman in a space with lesbians, what i need to happen is:

1) recognition of the historical presence of bisexual women in “lesbian” spaces until very recently (“lesbian” used to refer to all women who loved women, not just those who were exclusively…

I need to say that I don’t think this is actually a discussion about bi women’s right to reclaim the word “dyke”. I think this is a discussion whose purpose is to mark a clear boundary between lesbians and bi women, in order to place lesbians as legitimate/queer and bi women as illegitimate/straight.

It imposes a differentiation that in many cases doesn’t exist in daily life, for the sole purpose of fortifying the lesbian identity against a symbolic “bisexual” invasion.

In many ways, this particular discussion is not “real” but simply an excuse. Take for example the fact that my critics don’t discuss bi men and “faggot”, and the lack of any discussion about lesbians with “passing privilege” reclaiming “dyke”. Do recall that in many cases, bi-identified and lesbian-identified women’s lived experiences are very close or even indistinguishable.

So why are bi women singled out? Biphobia.

feminismandflowers:

being femme is not about being feminine. it’s about reclaiming what it is to be strong.

people read as feminine have also been condemned as weak, frail, unauthentic, and incapable as long as time is old. being femme, no matter gender identity, is about saying, fuck you, the things that make me feminine also make me strong. my femininity is not fake, contrived, or narrow - it is real and broad and open and empowering.

bisexual? looking for positive, accurate representation in media? boy have i got some upsetting news for you

fuffuster:

it’s funny how if you’re not straight, the assumption is always that you like men

like

bisexual male: YOU’RE SECRETLY JUST GAY AND WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH MEN

bisexual female: YOU’RE JUST FAKING IT FOR MALE ATTENTION

gay male: YOU’RE ONLY GAY BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T HAVE A GOOD MALE ROLE MODEL IN YOUR LIFE

gay female: YOU’RE ONLY A LESBIAN BECAUSE YOU WERE HURT BY MEN IN THE PAST AND NOW YOU HATE THEM

like did it occur to you at any point that it’s not always about men

It's not just about lesbians getting more respect. Its about how LGBT orgs are ALWAYS lead by L&Gs (with an occasional T) but the only national organization to ever have a bi president is BiNet. It's about how 0% of LGBT grants have gone to bisexual causes for years in a row. It's about how NO national LGBT rights group has a SINGLE bisexual board member. It's about how national groups like GLAAD only put up correct definitions of bisexual this week. It's structural monosexism not hurt feelings

Yes, this.  Thank you anon for this info and addition to the discussion.  But yeah.  I mean it’s the fact that I didn’t even know GLAAD had changed their definition.  

It’s the fact that LGBT means LG.  And that’s outside the community and within it.

When people refer to bisexual women as “half lesbians” 

Every time I close my eyes, it’s like a dark paradise.
