Two of the biggest problems faced by bisexual people are homophobia – and for bisexuals, the homophobia in the non-queer community includes some specific issues of biphobia, as well as the biphobia from within the queer community – and bisexual erasure. One approach to combating biphobia (and therefore allowing us to address homophobia more effectively) is to bust the myths about bisexuality that biphobia manifests.
There are plenty of documents and presentations floating around that take on 5 or 10 or 14 myths. I have one myself, over on Facebook. In this space, I want to try taking them on in more detailed ways – there are only so many times you can generate a list of myths and one or two sentences of rebuttal each. Here I want to dig a little deeper and try to take on root myths, or individual false stories one at a time.
