Dumb Stereotypes That Almost Stopped Bi People From Coming Out
Eliel Cruz wrote a story for Advocate.com that details the ugly stereotypes that caused some bi people to stay in the closet, according to a new study by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. In the study, 45 bisexuals said that the negative stereotypes or the overly-sexual misconceptions of bisexuality by friends and family caused them to hide their orientation.
For some, coming out as bisexual was too confusing for family members to understand, so they used the label of gay or bisexual instead.
