So here's 16 hella lit pieces of advice from bisexual teens, for bisexual teens, and for everyone else too.Misconception: Bisexual people only date cisgender men and women.These statements are rooted in ignorance, and must be challenged.Misconception: Bisexual people can’t make up their mind Rowan: Bisexual people have made up their mind: they chose bisexuality.However, to question another person’s sexuality is just downright disrespectful.This invalidates us not just as bisexual people, but as people in general. Luis: As a gay young person, I can barely make up my own mind about who I want to date, but I know I’m gay and that’s all that matters.It’s also a space for the voices of bisexual youth to be amplified as they share their experiences, offer support to each other, and highlight the need for more awareness on the issues bisexual youth face.These issues include, but are not limited to, bisexual erasure from LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ spaces, the prevalence of biphobia in those spaces, and the truth about bisexuality within nonbinary relationships.
Bisexuals are as likely to cheat as gay or straight, (etc.) people are. Bisexuality is just as valid as any other sexuality, and the only person who can determine it is the person themselves.Seeing how trans boys are boys (just like cis boys!) and the same for trans girls, a bisexual person seeing it differently than that has nothing to do with the sexuality itself but more the person.Luis: How do gay people know they're gay if they never dated the opposite sex?
How do straight people know they’re straight if they have never dated the same-sex?
Alex: No sexuality is inherently more accepting than another.
