"shoutout to bi people working through internalized biphobia

shoutout to bi people who feel pressured to pass as straight among straight friends and gay among gay friends but don’t really feel like you belong in either circle

shoutout to bi people who cringe at the inevitable “but I thought you were gay/straight!!!” reaction whenever you express attraction to someone outside of your assumed gender preference

shoutout to bi people who have had their sexuality interrogated by other bi people because it doesn’t mirror their own experiences or fit their definition of what being bi means

shoutout to bi people reluctant to come out because they’re tired of having to constantly defend their sexuality to anyone and everyone

i'm here for and i love you
