just in case you didn’t fucking know
bisexual DOES NOT automatically infer attraction to only binary genders AND EVEN SAYING THAT IN THE FIRST PLACE IS BIPHOBIC AS HELL AND IGNORANT AS FUCK
HERE’S WHY FROM AN ACTUALLY BI PERSON
Dear bonnienoire, thank you for this, thanks for offending and making me rather annoyed with this post. I see what you are saying, you are offended also by these people, but you have just offended me. A persons sexuality and Gender are two different things. A persons gender, in a simple way to put it, is what they present themselves as, Masculine, Feminine, etc. Sexuality is sexual feelings towards a persons sex, someones sex is what they have in between their legs (sex organ) The terms you are using in this post to explain bisexuality aren’t the right terms. Binary, is used for GENDER to explain gender-norms as people would say. Trans (I’m assuming you mean Transgender because most people would say trans for short) is again for GENDER, trans people identify themselves with the opposite gender then their biological one. As well as gender-queer, where they don’t have a specific gender, they don’t identify with one. Most people, like you, associate GENDER and SEX as the same thing but they are not. I identify as bigender, so this is how I behave and identify myself as for social standards. My gender identity doesn’t have anything to do with my sexual preference.
somewhere, you totally missed what i was saying completely. like — the entire thing. i’m sorry you got offended but i honestly am not sure how it happened? i assure you i DEFINITELY know that gender =/= sex, and further that gender =/= sexuality (i mean how would that even work???).
from your last line i gather you may have gotten upset because i specified the bi in bisexual to be “same” and “otherness”, which really doesn’t fit for someone who identifies as bigender. however, a prefix doesn’t carry every other word it’s attached to with it. bi means two, but i defined those two as being different directions of my personal sexual attraction, towards sameness and towards otherness. that still leaves all the space in the world for you to define bi in bigender as in two distinct gender presentations, and not two directions on a continuum, if that’s what you so desire.
so i’m sorry to have offended you, but i honestly think this is a misunderstanding. if you still feel that i have policed your identity in defining my own, please let me know and i’ll try and understand what went wrong with my wording here.
I am sorry bonnienoire for any misunderstandings we have between the two of us regarding this post. I didn’t mean any harm, I felt that the way you had worded the original post was not accurate, I see know what you originally intended. I would like to put this link toa video that might help close up any lose ends anyone might have so that there wont be any more hate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXAoG8vAyzI&list=UUGaVdbSav8xWuFWTadK6loA&index=5&feature=plcp
it’s fine, i’m glad everything’s cleared up then. :)
