8 Ridiculous Things People Assume When You're a Bisexual Girl with a Boyfriend

*Eyeroll*

It's not easy being bi-erased... and it's never more intensely awkward than when you've got an exclusive boy-toy you enjoy (and want to keep forever). Trust me.

8. Everyone thinks you're straight… or “straight now."

Oh, those hysterical jokes about how I'm an "ex-lesbian".


7. And they think he is too (ahem).

No, no. He's not. It wouldn't matter if he was, but he's not.

6. They pat him on the back and call him a "lucky man."

Not every bi couple ends the day in the sweaty throes of a kinky threesome (although some do, and that's utterly cool). Personally, we prefer pizza, Buzzfeed videos and a bit of one-on-one. Yum!

5. They accuse you of “straight privilege."

Yeah, because having your identity erased and/or dissed is just BRILLIANT. I've had 50 shades of shit for being bi before, from both straight and gay folk. I've earned my stripes. I'm allowed to be the B in the LGBT. Don't you forget it.


4. "Gay" bars and Pride marches are a minefield, because (yes, this again) they think you're both straight.

"Do you know what kind of bar this is?" Er yes, I've worked in LGBT media for most of my career. I do know. Hello, there's a B there! B is also for "bar"! Lemme in!


3. Or they think you're his beard.

He does look gorgeous in a dress.


2. Or that he's a pervy straight guy.

And I do have shortish hair and a penchant for jeans. But yeah.

1. That you're somehow missing out because you might never kiss a girl again.

But seriously, he is sooooooo worth it.
