Bi+ is an umbrella term for anyone who can be attracted to more than one gender. Bisexual, Pansexual, Fluid, and so on all fit under this term.
And let me tell you: being Bi+ these days is not easy!
Too many people have a severe lack of understanding about, intolerance for, and even prejudice against Bisexual+ individuals. And this comes from members of the Straight and Gay/Lesbian Communities.
And it’s Bi+ who pay the price.
Too many Bi+ feel isolated and lonely, going through life without any sense of community. Because intolerance comes from members of the straight and gay/lesbian communities, most Bi+ live and suffer in the closet. Fearful of what might happen if their secret is discovered. It can be terribly painful and exhausting enduring that for years on end
For Bi+ who are out, many must deal with hurtful comments and other examples of intolerance. A great number find dating brutally difficult since so much of society categorically refuses to even consider dating a Bi+ despite the fact many Bi+ are monogamous and most want to find someone special.
It’s time for people to educate themselves and open their minds.
Let go of preconceived stereotypes that are untrue most of the time.
Everyone should work towards being more tolerant, kind, caring, and open-minded. Doing so would make the world a better place for all.
