Dating as a queer woman presents a unique set of issues. Men would either ask me to explain what the term meant, incorrectly assume they knew exactly what it meant, or completely misidentify me. It quickly became a frustrating ritual for me, a self-identified queer woman and someone with a graduate-level education in gender and queer studies, to constantly be in a position of educating. Knowing what the term queer means, and how people choose to use and identity with it is vital. Being queer, like being gay or straight is not a choice.
Coming out as bisexual while in a relationship - How 10 women told their boyfriend
Sadly, there are still so many myths and misconceptions surrounding bisexuality. One of the most prevalent, is that when a cis bi woman's in a relationship with a cis guy, she's no longer bisexual. FYI, when a bi woman has a male, non-binary, or trans partner, that doesn't change their sexuality. They're still always bisexual if that's how they label themselves. But what if you're with a guy in what is perceived to be a heterosexual relationship, and you ' come out ' to them?
So, I'm bisexual. On the spectrum of "gay to straight" it's not categorical, hope that is not news to you! I am far more gay than I am straight.
