A reaction, a rant and some statistics

  1. Parade sees thousands defy rain to celebrate the LGBT community.

  2. It all started with XOJane posting a REALLY terrible article demonstrating some major biphobia.
  3. I think it's really important to highlight that this notion that bisexuals have privilege that benefits them is an illusion. There are no statistics to support this idea.
  4. This is not me saying that other LGBTQIA folks do not suffer. We ALL suffer. This is me saying that we need to stop erasing the suffering of bisexuals.
  5. It should be noted that trans women, especially trans women of color, are at higher risk than bisexual women for all of these issues. Of course, trans women can be bisexual too. I don't think there are statistics available for that specific group, but I can't imagine that they don't suffer from all of the problems that plague bisexuals as well as transgender folks.
