Bisexuals have a long history of being stereotyped as confused and promiscuous attention-seekers who are either not straight enough or not gay enough to fall into any "real" category of sexuality. Let's debunk the lies you've been sold about bisexuality by going through some of the comments you should absolutely never say to bisexuals.

1. "Who do you like more: boys or girls?"

It doesn't matter if I have a preference or not; I am bisexual and am attracted to more than one gender.

2. "But, like, if you HAD to choose?"

I don't, that's the point.

3. "Have you ever had a crush on me?"

No, contrary to popular belief, bisexuals aren't attracted to everything that moves. We do have standards, and no, you do not meet them.

4. "So you're like, half gay/half straight?"

No, I am not "half" anything, and bisexuality is not "halfway" between straight and gay.

5. "But... you're dating a guy. Doesn't that make you straight?"

No, because my sexual orientation is not defined by the gender of my partner. Bisexuals in opposite-sex relationships are still bisexual.

6. "Bisexuals are transphobic."

Bisexuality does not exclude attraction to trans and non-binary people, and bisexual does not have to strictly mean "attraction to men and women." I define my bisexuality as attraction to my gender and other genders. Your sexual orientation is determined by how you define it and what label you feel comfortable using, not by how the dictionary determines it for you.

7. "Maybe you're just confused, I mean I experimented in college, too."

Nope, not confused. Bisexuality is not synonymous with "experimenting." Bisexuality is part of who you are, not just something that happens when you get drunk and kiss your roommate on a dare. Sure, people experiment to try and figure out their sexuality, and those people are worthy of validation and support. But if I am telling you I'm bisexual, I don't mean that I'm confused. I mean I'm bisexual.

8. "Bisexuality is just a myth."

Well, if I'm not real then I definitely shouldn't have to pay taxes.

9. "I don't think I could ever date someone who's bi. I don't want to be cheated on."

We're no more or less apt to cheat than anyone else in the world. We have values. We're capable of love and commitment. But if you think dating a bisexual automatically means you'll be cheated on, maybe you deserve it.

10. "So how many partners do you have?"

Bisexuality does not mean polyamorous.

11. "Well, you aren't REALLY LGBT then, right?"

What do you think the "B" stands for? Bread?

12. "Are you just doing this for attention?"

Am I constantly being told I'm either "too straight" or "too gay" to be accepted by the communities around me "just for attention?" Have I spent countless nights wide awake at night wondering if there's something wrong me "just for attention?" Do I risk my safety every time I walk down the street holding my girlfriend's hand "just for attention?" Nope, definitely not.

13. "I mean, you can't REALLY know until you've been with both, right?"

Wrong, because sexual orientation does not depend on what genders you've been in relationships with. Trust me, I'm bisexual AF.

Look, I Don't Want Your Boy, But 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' Makes Me Feel Incredible

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.

I have seen so many thoughts and complaints that Ariana Grande's new song, "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored" is shallow.

Some are even saying, "this song just perpetuates everything that is wrong with dating and relationships in society today."

But, girl, I have to disagree.

You see, just because I sing this song at the top of my lungs in both my dorm's shower and alone in my car, I am not going to steal anyone's boyfriend.

I am simply pretending like I am some kind of bad chick that no one should mess with but in reality, I apologize for walking in someone's direction.

And, let's say, if I were to say something lighthearted or friendly to him and he responds with actions that propose cheating, he wasn't a good boyfriend in the first place.

Listen, girls: stop being so insecure.

You have a boyfriend. He loves you. He chose you. If another girl comes by and his eyes dart her way, his heart wasn't in it all the way.

Not everything is deeper than the skin.

Now, let me be clear, I am not saying that it's OK for girls to go around and try to steal boyfriends. Actually, that's a pretty trashy move that no one should attempt. I know it happens, though. I know it is everyone's worst fear.

However, there is no life living within fear of rejection and being left. If those are the things that linger in the back of your mind, you will never taste the freedom of living.

Truly living.

So am I a bad person, considering that 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' is my anthem?

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.

So no, just listening to Ari's new bop doesn't make me a bad person or a boyfriend stealer.

7 Tiny Things College Dudes Do That Give Off Major Small Dick Energy

If you exhibit any of these signs, re-evaluate yourself and your choices.

If you don't know what "small dick energy" means, let me give you the Urban Dictionary definition: "someone who shows off masculinity by being cocky, showing off, overly confident to overcompensate their 4.2 inch fully erect dick."

If you're afraid you might have this tragic disease: let me explain some of the key symptoms:

1. Adding girls you don't know on any social media platform just because you think they're hot.

I never thought friend requests could be so annoying.

2. Messaging said girls with some stupid pick-up-line to start a conversation.

What is this? Tinder?

3. Getting mad and aggressive when said girls don't message you back.

Bonus points for calling them mean names!

4. Getting even angrier when they do message back saying they're not interested.

Your insecurity isn't sexy.

5. Putting others down or not treating others with respect.

If you can't be polite to your servers or other customer service employees, you are the epitome of small dick energy.

6. Cornering girls at bars or parties and making them obviously uncomfortable.

If she doesn't seem interested in the conversation, she's not interested in you. Take a hint and walk away.

7. Any sort of forcefulness, pressure, or prejudice coming from a guy as he's talking to a girl.

BIG indicators of small dick energy and also toxic masculinity!



Now look, I know it sounds like I'm being a bitch, but let me tell you that I, and every other female on this planet regardless of race, sexuality, or anything that differentiates us, has been a victim of men with small dick energy. And it's not fucking cute anymore. In fact, it never was. If anything, it's uncomfortable, it's annoying, and it's concerning.

A girl is not a bitch, a slut, a loser, or any other name you want to throw at her if she doesn't like your advances. Calling her that is probably going to make her want to suck your (small) dick even less than before, if possible. We don't know you, and even if we did, we don't owe you anything. And if your first reaction to rejection is name-calling and blatant aggression, then you are likely a toxic person as it is who's got some deep-seated anger issues that you should probably take care of. And if you think that treating someone like that is okay and don't see anything wrong with that, then you might just be a psychopath, honestly.

Have some class and self-respect, guys, and leave the #smalldickenergy back in 2018.
