You quoted it like I mis-spelled it, so I asked.
The phrase "common connotation" is a... well, common one. So I had no clue what you meant by the quotation marks
emphasis, like I've never heard of biphobia before, so I wouldnt know what the common meaning was or is

@ZRH this is a convo that should be printed out for your therapist
Well
a) Funny you think I can afford a therapist. Or you know any healthcare. Last year's adventure to the emergency room set me back $30k and it's still not treated as it were.
b) I'm just curious, I dont know. Explain to me something.

Just a reminder that nobody gave a shit about AIDS, and assumed it was a gay disease, until rich straight people started getting it.
in addition to the obvious perils of community spread in any population that is in close contact, I'm reasonably certain this is an additional key reason why they're overrepresented in reported cases - before we had the knowledge and testing capabilities we do now, developing KS lesions could be the first real sign you had AIDS, so people who've lived through that era or know folks who have typically do not fuck around with "what's this weird skin thing" (whereas many straight cis men will wait until gangrene/sepsis/their shit is literally falling off to see a doctor)

That's literally not the literal meaning of the word. I just mean the descriptor could be better.

No comment on the second part but I mean... Paige... Lost my spare car keys fucking some chick who lived upstairs I think. Then didn't want to go get them. Which is really what I was upset about because new car keys are like $90. Of course at the time I had thought she was just hanging out with the neighbor and didn't think much of it. It's not a wonder I dont trust anyone anymore... I actually just put that together btw. You dont LOSE your car keys and wallet with your pants on. Fuckin hell.
Youre being am imbecile. I explained what biphobia is. You just dont want to accept youre biphobic. Nobody gives a fuck what the dictionary says phobia is. Homophobes are not always straight up scared of gays. Often they're just ignorant cunts about gays. Just like youre being ignorant of how youre representing bi people in a way thats stigmatising.

No, you object to the verbiage.

You said:

Apparently it's quite painful as well. I like how they tip toe around it, "men who have sex with men." THOSE ARE THE GAYS

Well this is gonna be a rabbit hole:

That's arguably still gay. Like I'm not putting anyone down but it's still pretty gay to have sex with men.

Thats biphobia in action laid out clearly and simply. Well done, youve now realised you have a new (unconcious?) prejudice. Now you can go away and think about how to stop doing that.

"
What is biphobia?

Biphobia is prejudice, fear or hatred directed toward bisexual people. It can include making jokes or comments based on myths and stereotypes that seek to undermind the legitimacy of bisexual identity, like "bisexuality is a phase" or "bi people are greedy." Biphobia occurs both within and outside of the LGBTQ community.


What are some of the unique issues that bisexual people face?

In addition to biphobia, bisexual people are often excluded or rendered invisible in LGBTQ spaces and conversations about LGBTQ issues. Bisexual people are sometimes assumed to be straight or gay based on the gender of the person they are currently dating.

Because of biphobia and bi erasure, bisexual people suffer significantly higher rates of depression and anxiety, domestic violence, sexual assault and poverty than lesbians, gay men or straight cisgender (non-transgender) people. Bisexuals also face major health disparities and poor healthcare outcomes from a lack of adequate preventative care. The HRC Foundation’s study of bisexual youth suggests that biphobia and sexual harassment start affecting bisexuals at a young age."


I actually took part in someones phd research on this very topic some years ago.

I did educate by breaking down what biphobia is right away with examples. You then got defensive with multiple people about it and were stuck in a state of denial until you were called an imbecile about it.

Good day.
You didnt full stop. You just accused me of something I'd never heard of and then two people gave me shit reasoning including just saying you were an expert.

Would you rather I take things on faith?

Like if you dont want to explain your reasoning I will view you as an ideologue.
