Hi, I‘m April. I am Bisexual. I'm a computer technician, former Valedictorian, secular humanist, anti-theist, pianist, animal lover, writer, artist, science junkie, bitch, lover, child, mother, sinner, saint...I have more questions than answers about everything from the universe to my gender and sexuality.
What being bisexual means to meBeing bisexual means being my most authentic, holistic self and experiencing the full breadth and wealth life has to offer.
What I would like the world to know about bisexualsBisexual stereotypes about being easy or promiscuous are just not true. We're just like you, only sexier.
What was your path to a bisexual identity?As a child I would undress and admire Barbie's and have girl and boy crushes. I was raised in a very conservative, homophobic Mormon home and inherited some of those views and self-hatred unfortunately as a youth. Some of my friends helped me see the folly in my thinking, however, and I became open-minded. I experimented somewhat as a young adult and realized I was predominantly homosexual; while able to orgasm easily with men and feel strong emotional connections with men, I am more attracted to women's bodies and more romantically attracted to them. Taking a kinsey scale test also assisted me in approximating my place along the sexuality spectrum.
What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?My own unresolved feelings about it and my extreme timidness around women
What is the best thing about being bisexual?Having so many options and feeling so open and capable of love with so many people
How have other people in your life reacted to your bisexuality?I've had some "Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve" comments. The old "I'm not judging you but God is" kind of remark here and there. However I've been extremely careful with who I've revealed it to but those who understand and know me have not been surprised in the least bit, but rather humored or relieved to see me finally discovering myself.
What advice do you have for someone who thinks they may be bi or who is in the process of coming out as bi?Message me. :)
