I love the smell of internalized misogyny with unbelievable biphobia in the morning.
"dismantling the patriarchy in one cute outfit at a time"
It’s a joke I don’t believe that 100%. Coming to terms with my femininity is an entirely different discussion.
Anyway let me tell you about my personal experience with biphobia since you don’t seem to think that me, a girl currently in a straight passing relationship, can never experience it. I was first aware of my bisexuality while in a mentally abusive relationship with a male. I had serious romantic feelings for a girl, and because I had been conditioned to think that “bisexual = looking for attention” I thought maybe I just wanted to be “really good friends with her” when I tried to talk to people about my confusing emotions, they said I “probably didn’t like her”. When I tried to talk to my mom about it, despite being really accepting, she said she “didn’t understand bisexuals” and that she “really hoped I wasn’t one”. But here’s where it gets real cute. When I started coming out about my sexuality to people I was constantly harassed by straight males and in some instances sexually harassed. yes I did experience comments about “being a lesbian” that were derogatory. When I came out my sexuality was fetishized by men who thought I was “coming out” for male pleasure. I have experiences nothing but fetishization from most men and dismissal from (big surprises) lesbians about “not being legitimately gay” despite not being able to come out for a long time and having to keep my romantic feelings and physical romantic actions from people I usually trusted, who turned out were really shitty when they found out I wasn’t “gay or straight”. So how dare you fucking dismiss my struggle. How fucking dare you align yourself with being subversive when you have no idea about my narrative and if that has led to me being subjected to discrimination because of my sexuality. I’m fetishized by straight people and I’m clearly rejected by those who aren’t so please tell me what space I have to talk about my sexuality since I can’t call people out on it.
Additionally you only called out bi women. You exclusively called out bi women. Please tell me your insightful thoughts about bimen because I know some who would love to hear it. Are their relationships somehow more valid? Are they not worthy of critique or discourse because ???? because I’m pretty sure bimen that I know have experienced biphobia and have experienced erasure and it’s hard. It’s so hard to find people to trust and talk to about this especially when this is the kind of bullshit reaction we get from the gay and lesbian community.
It’s a cool place, and they say it gets harder
You’re bundled up now, wait ‘til you get better

We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
