A few days ago was International Bi Visibility day and I saw lots of support on Facebook for the bi community but in the last few years there have been a lot of articles about how the bi community struggle. They struggle to convince people that being bisexual is real or they have people constantly asking them to make a choice about which gender they prefer.

Why is it so difficult for people to understand that someone can be attracted to both males and females equally? Even the gay world seems to struggle with the idea. A lot of us as gay men have made the statement that we are bi on the way to fully accepting that we are truly gay so that has probably done a lot of damage for the credibility of the genuinely bi.

There is also the confusion created when a bi person is in a monogamous relationship. People who aren’t bi, seem to struggle with the idea that just because they aren’t shagging both sexes that they can still identify as bi. Just because you aren’t acting on it doesn’t mean the attraction isn’t there. I mean, I barely get any sex but I still consider myself gay even if I’m not a practicing homosexual a lot of the time.
