What is Bisexuality?
What is bisexuality?
Being bisexual means having romantic, emotional, physical and sexual attraction towards both women and men. Even within the LGBT community, bisexual people are often misunderstood or discriminated against, sometimes resulting in health issues. Hurtful stereotypes include assumptions about being "confused", "unfaithful", "promiscuous", "greedy" or "not gay enough". All these are examples of biphobia, which refers to negative feelings, thoughts or actions towards bisexual people. These can include making offensive statements, mocking or ignoring their identities altogether.
Some people may also use the term pansexual to describe their attraction towards people of all genders, beyond the binary of male and female.
