So. This is old, but it’s new to me, and I found it pretty awesome. It’s about bisexuality not reinforcing the gender binary and the biphobia of excluding/attacking “bisexual” on this basis but ignoring the more privileged categories of “homosexual” and “heterosexual.”
And then this is the first report by a government agency on the invisibility of bisexuals. It’s chock full of interesting facts, like how bisexual women make less money than lesbians, and bisexual men make less money than all categories, yet bisexual women are more likely to live in poverty than any other studied gender & orientaton (bisexual women must have less resources available to them, or more monetary demands, than bisexual men?)
It also talks about the unwillingness of many LGBT organizations to cater to the needs of the bisexual community, and the stigma attached in both the gay and straight communities, despite the number of self-identified bisexuals slightly exceeding the number of homosexuals.
