Pride Is Here

6-2-21
   Well Pride has arrived. A time for LGBTQ+ people to be proud and celebrate who we are. Many cities and communities have a variety of celebrations, although the COVID pandemic has changed some of how it is celebrated. In normal times, there are festivals, parades, declarations by local governments, and so on. Rainbow flags as well as the flags of a variety of LGBTQ+ groups are more prevalent, and on social media, LGBTQ+ people will say Happy Pride and put various LGBTQ+ symbols and colors on their profiles. For many, it’s a time to be proud who they are, to celebrate, and help spread the word and educate others.
   But for many LGBTQ+ individuals, Pride is not so happy. It can be a tough time for quite a few people. The reasons for this are quite varied. There are many LGBTQ+ still suffering in the closet, surrounded by prejudiced family members, coworkers, and others who create such a toxic environment that the LGBTQ+ person is too afraid to come out. There are others who have suffered personal setbacks or tragedies that have tarnished their feelings about Pride. In addition to these are numerous LGBTQ+ people who don’t feel much sense of community because of intolerance and lack of understanding coming from too many members of the straight and gay / lesbian communities. Examples of people who often feel this way are those who are bi+ (bisexual, pansexual, fluid), genderfluid, genderqueer, non-binary, transgender, asexual, and intersex. Too many of us feel like we don’t really belong anywhere. And I said “us” on purpose because I’m bi+ and genderfluid myself.
   So for a variety of reasons, Pride can be a difficult time for many LGBTQ+ people. So, to those for whom Pride is an amazing time, try to be considerate and understanding of those for whom this month is difficult. Take a moment to educate yourself and learn about the reasons why some people are hurting right now. Perhaps open your mind a little bit with regards to those who are bi+, genderfluid, genderqueer, non-binary, transgender, asexual, and so on.
   And to those for whom Pride is not so happy, be strong and hang in there. It’s okay. I understand because Pride is a difficult time for me as well. Believe in yourself and never give up.
   Remember:
   Believe in yourself and never give up!

People Need To Educate Themselves About Bisexual+ Sexuality

  Let’s be clear here: I think most of the population still has a lot to learn about Bisexual+ sexuality. Evidence of this includes the fact that too many Bi+ individuals feel they have to live in the closet due to the lack of understanding, intolerance, and prejudice encountered from too many members of the Straight and Gay/Lesbian Communities.
   This has got to change. It’s way past time for everyone to open their minds and educate themselves about Bi+ sexuality!
   So let’s get started.
   What is Bi+ sexuality you may be wondering. Well, Bisexual+, or Bi+, is an umbrella term for anyone who can be attracted to more than one gender whatever terms or labels they prefer, for there isn’t one label everyone uses. Bisexual, Pansexual, Fluid, Omnisexual, Heteroflexible, Homoflexible, and Queer (a catch all for all LGBTQ people) are just some examples. There are different terms and different ways people look at the potential of being attracted to more than one gender.
   Now, like any community, there is a wide range of Bi+ folks from all walks of life with a plethora of feelings, ideas, and outlooks. Bi+ can be rich, poor, young, old, male, female, nonbinary, genderfluid, genderqueer, you name it. Most are looking for, or are in, monogamous relationships while there are others in ethically open or polyamorous relationships.
   Everyone needs to recognize that the vast majority of Bi+ people are decent human beings hoping to find someone special. Searching for love, romance, companionship, chemistry, and connection. Sound familiar?
   And sure, like all communities, there are a few jerks. But they are the exceptions, not the rule.
   One of the big problems facing Bi+ today is how so much of the Straight and Gay/Lesbian communities believe or go along with unfair, preconceived stereotypes that are not true the majority of the time. Bi+ are not a bunch of confused, lying cheaters, yet way too much of society goes along with such ridiculous notions. This is why so much of the Bi+ Community suffers in the closet, afraid of what will happen if their secret is discovered. And Bi+ individuals who are out frequently face intolerance and prejudice from members of the Straight and Gay/Lesbian Communities. As a result, Bi+ often finding dating brutally difficult since so many people categorically refuse to go out on even one date once they realize an individual is Bi+.
   Newsflash folks: if you like someone, you’re interested in them in many ways, there is great chemistry, you both want a monogamous relationship (for example), and so on, but you automatically refuse to go out with them (without giving them a chance) once you realize they can be attracted to more than one gender, that is a form of prejudice!
   This needs to change.
   People need to educate themselves and open their minds.
   They should not be intolerant, jumping to unfair conclusions, just because someone is Bi+.
   They need to remember that Bi+ are people too and deserve a chance.
   Remember: Love Is Love!

Too Many Bisexual+ People Suffer Due To A Lack Of Understanding And Intolerance From Others

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.

People Need To Educate Themselves And Open Their Minds

What is Bi+ you ask?

Bi+ (or Bisexual+) is an umbrella term for anyone who can be attracted to more than one gender, whatever term(s) they prefer. Bisexual, Pansexual, Fluid, etc all fit under the Bi+ umbrella.

Next, more people are Bi+ than Gay/Lesbian.

Yes, it’s true.

Thing is, because of intolerances and prejudices coming from members of the Straight and Gay/Lesbian Communities, most Bi+ suffer in the closet. Afraid of being discovered, of being ostracized, losing friends, losing family, and so on.

Many people who are guilty of being intolerant against Bi+ may not even realize it. Too much of society these days believe unfair, preconceived, negative stereotypes that are untrue for most Bi+. These stereotypes include the ideas that Bisexual+ individuals must be confused, lying cheaters or some combination of that.

But most Bi+ individuals are decent, honest human beings hoping to find someone special. Many are totally monogamous as well.

Sound familiar?

It’s way past time for everyone to educate themselves and open their minds. Let go of preconceived stereotypes that are not true most of the time.

Stop automatically rejecting someone in the dating world just because they are Bi+.

Quit assuming a Bi+ individual must be confused and untrustworthy.

How would you feel if most of society thought these things about you?

Hmm?

Let’s all strive to be open minded people and make this a better, happier world for everybody!

Time To Learn About The Bisexual+ Community Everyone!

Here’s the deal folks: the Bisexual+ Community is hurting and struggling. Has been for years. And this needs to change!
   For one thing, Bisexual+ is an umbrella term for anyone who has the potential to be attracted to more than one gender, whatever label(s) they prefer. Bisexual, Pansexual, Fluid, and so on all fit under this umbrella.
   Another thing is that Bisexual and Pansexual are different terms and perhaps different ways of looking at the same idea. Bisexuality means the potential for attraction to more than one gender, any gender (Male, Female, Non-binary, Transgender, etc), while Pansexuality means attraction to someone regardless of gender. See what I mean. Different names and perhaps different ways of looking at the same thing. Many Bi+ use both terms for themselves.
   Did you know that more people are Bi+ than Gay and Lesbian? Yep it’s true. But much of today’s society has a serious lack of understanding about Bisexual+ individuals. This often leads to insecurities, intolerances, and prejudices aimed at Bi+ persons. People often believe unfair preconceived stereotypes that are false the majority of the time. Thing is, the Bi+ Community is varied and diverse. While some are in ethically open or polyamorous relationships, most are monogamous and hoping to find someone special.
   The Bi+ Community is NOT a bunch of confused, lying sex maniacs!
   In media, Bi+ individuals and characters often have their identities erased or are treated badly as confused, lying villains. In the dating world, many people categorically refuse to date Bi+ individuals despite the fact that most would be totally faithful.
   Everyone needs to recognize that the majority of Bi+ want to find that special someone. Sound familiar?!
   That is why increased visibility of Bisexual+ people and education are so important. As Bisexuality/Pansexuality becomes more widely known, hopefully people will learn to open their minds and let go of unfair, negative stereotypes that are false most of the time.

Bisexual+ Are People Too Who Deserve Respect And A Chance

Guess what!
   Bisexual+ people are real!
   And Bi+ can be totally faithful and monogamous.
   Yes, it’s true.
   Like any community, there is a wide range of Bi+ individuals from all walks of life with a plethora of feelings and outlooks. Different terms are used such as Bisexual, Pansexual, Fluid and so on.
   Many want to find someone special and are completely monogamous while some are polyamorous or in ethical open relationships.
   And sure, like all communities, there are a few jerks.
   But the vast majority are decent human beings wanting to find love, chemistry, and connection.
   One of the big problems facing Bi+ today is how so many people believe or go along with unfair, preconceived stereotypes which are not true the majority of the time. Bi+ are not a bunch of confused, lying cheaters, yet way too much of society go along with these ridiculous ideas. This is why so much of the Bi+ Community suffers in the closet, afraid of what will happen if their secret is discovered. And other Bi+ who are out face intolerance and prejudice from members of the Straight and Gay/Lesbian Communities, often finding dating brutally difficult as a result.
   This needs to change.
   People need to educate themselves and open their minds.
   They should not be intolerant, jumping to unfair conclusions, just because someone is Bi+.
   They need to remember that Bi+ are people too and deserve a chance.
