BI SEXUAL DOESNT MEAN ONLY ATTRACTED TO TWO GENDERS OR TWO SETS OF GENDERS PLEASE STOP

no i’m sorry but “bi” is literally the word for 2. Bicycle, 2 wheels. Bifocals, 2 lenses. Binary, only using 2 digits. BI MEANS 2. BISEXUAL MEANS SEXUALLY ATTRACTED TO 2 GENDERS. what the fuck am i supposed to identify with if everyone keeps moving the fucking goalposts. stop.

From the Bisexual Resource Center: The BRC uses bisexual as an umbrella term for people who recognize and honor their potential for sexual and emotional attraction to more than one gender (pansexual, fluid, omnisexual, queer, and all other free-identifiers). We celebrate and affirm the diversity of identity and expression regardless of labels.

From Bisexual.org: What unifies all these people and makes them all bisexual is the fact they have the capacity for romantic and/or sexual attraction to more than one sex or gender.

so….bi lol

As a pan person who knows a lot of pan people we get pretty offended when people say we’re just a derivative of bisexual. We’re not remotely the same thing. It’s not a fucking umbrella term and pansexual is not just another way to identify as bi. That’s pretty much erasing pan as its own identity, same as fluid, queer, etc. I am NOT bisexual and do not identify that way. 

you don’t have to id as bi but you can’t tell me what my sexuality is? just like how i can’t tell you what yours is! you make the point in the statement you just said and then contradict it! i get pretty offended when i say im bi and ppl think i only like 2 genders. i’m not trying to change what pansexual means im just trying to get ppl to see what being bisexual means, 

you literally quoted a site that said that pan, fluid, omni, queer, etc are “just another way to say bisexual” okay get the fuck out

i used to identify as bi okay i think i fucking know

i can’t tell you what your sexuality is but you can’t just change or alter a term because you want it to fit you and then get upset when other people don’t like or identify with this definition??? identify however you want but you’re pretty much doing exactly what you’re claiming i’m doing to you

"The BRC uses bisexual as an umbrella term for people who recognize and honor their potential for sexual and emotional attraction to more than one gender (pansexual, fluid, omnisexual, queer, and all other free-identifiers).

"The BRC uses bisexual as an umbrella term"

1) The BRC isn’t fucking the be-all-end-all of bi people

2) This is like saying "The BRC uses gay/lesbian as an umbrella term for bisexuals" aka you’d probably get way more up in arms about that, wouldn’t you?

3) “The term bisexuality is mainly used in the context of human attraction to denote romantic or sexual feelings toward both men and women”

4) I really don’t care because it’s obvious you’re not getting the fact that saying bi = pan is super offensive bye

ur not bisexual so idk why ur even responding

"Except bisexuality has been defined as attraction to two OR MORE genders since well before pansexuality was being defined as attraction to all genders. I personally feel that the labels and those that use them can peacefully coexist, despite the overlap (because of the overlap?) in definitions, but if you really, really want to say one is erasing the other, well… We were here first.

As far as the etymology of the word, I have a few things for you to consider: 1-look up etymological fallacy. 2- the actual etymology of bisexual: originally used for plants that displayed both male and female sex characteristics, it was coopted by the medical community as a “diagnosis” for people who experienced attraction to more than one gender (more than one not necessarily meaning just two. There was no broader medical recognition of nonbinary genders). From there, it was essentially reclaimed by the bisexual community (similar to the term homosexual).” - I-put-in-my-earplugs

p a g a n p o e t r y replied to your post: did u know: meanings for words change …

they do. but I don’t like being called bisexual. it’s a matter of preference I suppose.

i wouldnt call you bisexual either! i just don’t think it’s right for people to tell me what my sexuality identifier means like? on two bisexual resource websites it lists the definiteion of bisexual so

did u know: meanings for words change over time!! wow incredible……………………………………………….
