Re: Ask A Pro Live: Bi-Visibility

No problems at all @xXLexi_Lou122Xx Heart 

Re: Ask A Pro Live: Bi-Visibility

@AnthonyBisexual Yeah! I've actually seen some people attempt to do that in the past. Like, 'I'm 25% gay and 75% straight'. I'm not even sure how something as fluid and intangible as sexuality can be measured in percentages...

Re: Ask A Pro Live: Bi-Visibility

One of the reasons I especially love going to pride is seeing all the different flags i.e. the unique bi, trans, asexual, etc flags. A brilliant reminder of separate micro-communities coming together into one and showing solitary! I wish there were more resources for people that don't quite identify as either gay or straight, though.

Re: Ask A Pro Live: Bi-Visibility

Hopefully, this thread can serve as a place for bi+ people to connect without fear of biphobia! As I mentioned before I will post some resources on how you can connect with bi support and community Heart 

 

@scared01 touched on this question before and we thought this was a great one to hash out a little further if you have anything else to say on this @AnthonyBisexual 

 

What's the difference between bisexuality and pansexuality?

Re: Ask A Pro Live: Bi-Visibility

@Hozzles  I love seeing all the flags too! Smiley Happy I always try to see if each micro-community is represented and get annoyed when they leave ones out.

Re: Ask A Pro Live: Bi-Visibility

Thank you for mentioning Asexuality, people can have no sexual desire or attraction but feel romantic attractions to people of all genders #asexual/biromatic

Re: Ask A Pro Live: Bi-Visibility

This has been a really cool chat to read through! Loved hearing your insights so far @AnthonyBisexual Smiley Very Happy Heart

Re: Ask A Pro Live: Bi-Visibility

There is a very nuanced difference but bisexuality is the attraction to people of your own gender and other genders and, pansexuality is the attraction to people regardless of their gender (so its about the person not their specific gender), does that make sense?

Re: Ask A Pro Live: Bi-Visibility

@WheresMySquishy me too! Also, it's usually funny as there's always about four different kinds of lesbian flags, haha.

@AnthonyBisexual  of course! For most of my teenage life I thought I was ace, so I'm passionate about supporting those people (and the rest of the community) as it was a very lonely time for me. I emphasize with people struggling to find resources to help them through their journeys. 

Wow, thank you for your great collection of resources! Smiley Very Happy
