Hi, I‘m Mouse. I am Bisexual. I am a huge nerd and will fangirl about really anything. I'm a theater chick, but not like musicals, just plays. I can sing (or so I'm told). I LOVE dogs and have mixed feelings about cats. I like to write stories. So yeah... there's probably other stuff but I can't think of anything right now.
What being bisexual means to meBeing bisexual means that I have finally found my place in the world with a community to accept me no matter what. More importantly it means to be human and love myself.
What I would like the world to know about bisexualsHi there world! I want you to know that bisexual people are NOT greedy! We love who we love and we leave it at that! And no, we are not more likely to cheat on a partner because we find the opposite sex appealing!
What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?When people say that bisexuality isn't even a thing. Uh, yes it is!
What is the best thing about being bisexual?Being able to shout "I AM BISEXUAL AND I AM PROUD" from the top of a mountain after a long hike. (I've done this before and it was awesome)
How have other people in your life reacted to your bisexuality?With "Okay, cool. What do you want for lunch?"
What advice do you have for someone who thinks they may be bi or who is in the process of coming out as bi?If you think you're bi, are not completely sure don't stress! Take your time and do your research because the rainbow has a lot of terms; you may identify more with a different term. Also, if you think you're bi, just let it sit for a while, the term might click with you if you give yourself a little time.
To people who are thinking about/in the process of coming out; Don't rush it, take your time. Come out to people who you know will accept you before others, those people can help you come out to the harder people. With the harder people, give them a little bit of time to come to terms with it. And have fun with it! Make cupcakes, sing a song, write a poem, make a poster, draw a picture. If you want to just sit down and tell someone, then sit down and tell them. Be proud! If you're uncomfortable with your sexuality they have a better chance of being uncomfortable as well.
