So I like guys and girls, but the thing is it go through phases of which gender I prefer? Is that cool? I mean there are days where I just find girls so damn attractive and guys really aren't, but then some days I find both really fucking attractive. Girls never seem to be unattractive haha. But I don't know is that normal?..I'm a 17 year old girl and I'm just trying to figure myself out.

A lot of multisexuals feel that way, it’s completely normal I promise you. I don’t know what sexual orientation you identify as, but it’s all okay, no one  can take whatever labels you choose for yourself away from you. 

If it makes you feel better, I’ve dated gay men before who were completely okay with dating women and still identifying as gay, like not “closeted gay men” or gay men who didnt know they were gay at the time, but openly gay men who found themselves attracted to women on occasion and still being okay with their own labels. 

If you’re a multisexual it’s probable that someone is going to try to tell you at some point that you cant identify the way you do if you sometimes feel one way or another, but trust me, they get absolutely no say in what you identify as x

  • Capitalist 2: I heard there's a shelter for queer and trans kids who got kicked out that's going to be closing soon due to lack of funding?
  • Capitalist 1: I was thinking more along the lines of an ad campaign where we just put our logo in rainbow colors.
  • Capitalist 2: That's a much better idea

New Documentary Highlights Discrimination Within the Black Lesbian/(and Bisexual) Community

The Same Difference is an hour-long documentary about lesbians who discriminate against other lesbians and bisexual women by Nneka Onuorah, an associate producer for BET.

“It’s almost like a gang,” Onuorah tells ELIXHER. “This is the criteria. This is what you have to do or you’re not a part of it, you’re not in it, or you’re not real. I thought that was ridiculous” … she wanted to start the conversation and shed some light on those issues …

So far, the teaser has been well received. The LGBT community wants to see it because they are living this every day…

Her fundraising goal is $15,000 and the money raised will go to production costs for her to complete the film. Onuorah does not want to only get the major city perspectives that are always seen. She wants to talk to people in states like Utah, Arkansas, and Washington … she also wants to make sure the message is heard by everyone, not just the lesbian community.

“It’s the same difference,” she says. “It’s not like we [lesbians] just face discrimination or we discriminate against each other and have stereotypes. This happens in the African American [heterosexual] community. From culture to culture, we’re doing this to each other. You can take the ‘lesbian’ out of the film and it will still be as powerful”The Same Difference is sure to spark a national dialogue around identity and the way we police one another. Give what you can to help make this important film happen. Donate here.

So is the misogyny directed at bisexual women sapphobia or sapphophobia? I'm sorry! I googled it and couldn't figure it out o.o I'm sorry for treating you like Google..

A

Haha it’s fine. I’m not an expert on this, but I believe Sapphobia is for bisexual women, Sapphophobia is the one for all women attracted to the same gender. If you want to learn more about it honestly I would suggest going into the “difemina” tag.

I'm really sorry you receive rape threats from people. I hate that women and nb folks receive them so often. Interesting how it illustrates that rape is used as a punishment and a way to keep people in line. Another blogger I follow published the threats hy received and a common factor was the sender saying maybe if I did this to you it would shut you up or try to call me out again after I've done this to you, etc. It's scary. One of my posts has been getting popular and I am waiting for it. :/

Thanks, yeah it’s a really common thing for women/nb/queer people on the internet to get rape/death threats and it’s really messed up. And you’re absolutely right, it’s never used as a sexual word, it’s always about humiliating you or making you feel scared, it’s scary but not because of the threat itself, because you know that that sad little person sending you anonymous messages about wanting to hurt you isn’t ever going to show themselves, but at the same time, the fact that SO MANY guys are comfortable with making those kinds of barbaric threats is terrifying, the degree to which they hate women is terrifying.

Like I honestly had no idea how much men hated women until I started this blog. Especially last summer when it was first starting to get a lot of attention, I was having panic attacks everyday, like no joke, every single day, several times a day. I got several rape threats a day, was being sexually harassed constantly, was being sent extremely gory pictures of women who were beaten/bruised, whenever I made a blog post about being a rape survivor or having the courage to cut off some bad people from my life, I would get a lot of support but I would also get messages saying it was my fault all that stuff happened to me, or that I was lying about being raped to make someone look bad, those were definitely the most triggering at the time. Eventually I learned to tune them out and a big chunk of them disappeared, but it was terrifying that people could be so hateful to someone simply for their gender. 

I really hope you don’t get any messages like that, I wouldnt wish that on anyone, but if you want to be extra safe, turn off your anon for a while, and be very liberal with the block button x

Did you know that nonbinary bisexuals exist? And that using the existence of nonbinary people as an argument against bisexuality is especially harmful to us?

You’re literally using our gender as an argument against our sexuality.

I don’t need to explain how fucked up that is.

Jane Doe, the anonymous 16-year-old transgender girl who spent two months in an adult correctional facility despite no criminal charge, has been transferred to a “secure facility for delinquent boys.” 

According to DCF officials, while in the psychiatric facility, Doe assaulted a staff member and a fellow youth, and also destroyed DCF property on Saturday night, prompting the final determination of placement at the Juvenile Training School, stating that there is no other “suitable place” for her.

Doe’s lawyer told the AP that DCF has already broken a number of promises regarding his client’s placement, safety, and future prospects. Doe’s attorney claims that DCF officials had assured him that Doe would receive adequate therapy, and that the agency would attempt to place her in a foster home.

Doe is being held in a separate room, away from the boys at JTS.

I don’t have any words for how unjust, inhumane and downright awful this is. #JusticeForJane
