Bisexual dating single
The vast majority of abusers of bisexual women are straight, cisgender men.As long as bisexual women are stereotyped as promiscuous, incapable of fidelity, and hypersexual -- stereotypes that partners often use as excuses for abusive behaviors -- we will remain victimized at higher rates.For example, I'm more sexually attracted to men, but I'm more emotionally attracted to women.Sometimes the two coincide; other times they don't.And we most certainly didn't just "need to be with the right man/woman." We're bisexual. Many of us have been in really bad relationships, and bear the physical and psychological scars.Sixty-one percent of bisexual women have been stalked, sexually assaulted, or physically assaulted by an intimate partner during their lifetime, significantly higher rates of abuse than among lesbians or straight women.
This is one of those things that you shouldn't do to anyone ever. But it's especially important in this context because bisexual women are so often assumed to be promiscuous (not that there's anything wrong with that).
This point is particularly relevant, in my experience, to straight/cis men with sexual hangups. we're probably not going to be freaked out if you like butt stuff, and we're not going to shame you or call you gay.
Many of us experience and acknowledge different kinds of attraction and experience different levels of attraction to different genders.
This tendency makes us feel like you don't trust us to define ourselves, or like we're not "gay enough" to be part of the LGBT community.
Of course, like any group, some of us are miserable human beings.
