I never realised non-bi's in a way would look down on bisexuals till I read something about it this weekend and now this article. I was quite perplexed. Ofcourse, I know this doesn't apply to every non-bi's.
I never considered myself straight, lesbian or pansexual... so what am I?
Yes, being open to any gender does open up a much bigger pool to choose from but in the end, for me it's about the person and NOT the GENDER! I imagine life would have been simpler if I was straight or lesbian but alas, that is not the case. If I meet a girl who rocks my world, great! If I meet a guy who rocks my world, great!
The reply I usually get when I explain I'm bi, something in the lines of: oh, you have a finger in both pies..
I then continue to explain that I fall in love with a person and not with gender. It's about love, not gender. Not sure if that gets the message across but hey, that's my truth.
Whether a new word would be good.. perhaps, though in a way gender-blind would cover it for me on the surface level
