I've experienced more creepiness than anything else. You know, like people thinking I'd automatically be down for a threesome just because.

I don't know. Be more specific? Have we ever had someone be "phobic" of our OWN sexuality? No, not that I know of. I am not bi either. Or do you mean have we personally ever been phobic of bi people?

What?

I've had more then one person drop me like a Marburg infected primate once they found out my sexuality.

I will never understand how I can be so disgusting for not really having a gender preference.

I'm sorry! I guess my question was more targeted to those who identify as not preferring one specific gender or sex.

I feel like there is a lot of stigma in both the straight and queer community with people who ID as bisexual. There should be more awareness.

I don't think I've experienced people really biphobic like there are homophobics, but I've met people who feel that one needs to "pick a side" or that if anyone does identify as bisexual it's because they are trying to "join the fad." I'm omnisexual, myself, and when I've been asked to explain it, I've had other people interrupt with, "She's just really greedy." So no phobia, but ignorance.

Drop you? Like refuse to date you? WTF that's messed up? My current BF is pretty tight laced but even he doesn't care that I'm attracted to girls, half the time he'll ask me if I noticed so and so's boobs or this hot girl or that hot girl and then we'll get into a debate about who we think is attractive lol. But I never knew someone would be that uncomfortable with you liking men and women to not date you for it? Messed up.

I've dealt with that as well. I was shocked at a family dinner when the conversation turned to a girl who was "too attractive" to be a lesbian. I was genuinely pissed that anyone in my family could be that ignorant as to think that only "ugly" girls should be lesbians cause no guy wants them.

When I first came out, I had a lot of people tell me that I must actually be either a) a straight girl looking for attention, b) a closeted lesbian using bisexuality as a buffer zone against being "really" gay, or else c) a huge, indiscriminate slut. I've never gotten beaten up for it or anything, there are far worse possible situations, but people are really nasty about it sometimes.

I suppose I have been against myself. Self-acceptance and such. I don't know anyone else who's actually bi. Just back in high school the ones doing it for attention.

Yes. and I was extremely surprised that "Talk Sex With Sue" had some of it too. she said "Honey, if your man is bisexual, you have no guarantee that he won't cheat on you. it's inevitable.".....

I've been told I have to choose on gender or else I would break my potential partner's heart.
I think that's ridiculous though. If they can't handle me being bi, then I probably shouldn't be dating them anyway.
