THIS creepy lookin dude is Mike Pence. He's the new VP-elect. Pence opposes protections for LGBT folks and proposed redirecting money from an aids program into conversion therapy. Conversion therapy makes people 8.9x more likely to be suicidal. He must really hate queer people. In light of Pence's increased power in the federal government, I've been encouraging folks to be more out so long as it's safe for them. It's easy to pathologize gender and sexual minorities when you convince yourself it doesn't apply to anyone you care for. I guess I should say: I'm bisexual! Bisexual folks often get assigned gay or straight based on the perceived gender of their partner. Since there are so damn many out-and-proud straight people, most bisexuals will end up with one! You might even know a bisexual without realizing it. So please, let's stop putting money into killing LGBT people! A few things about bisexuality:
Bisexuality is attraction to your own and other genders. Bisexual women aren't straight. Bisexual men aren't gay. Bisexuality doesn't require being equally attracted to all genders. Bisexuals can experience romantic and sexual attraction differently! You can be biromantic & asexual, heteroromantic & bisexual, homoromantic & bisexual & so on!
