Hi, I‘m Sky. I am Bisexual.

Hi! I'm Sky, and I love to do many things like paint, draw, watch anime, read, and sew. I also play the violin! I live in Alabama. My dad, grandmother, and aunt are very accepting of my bisexuality, but my mother on the other hand is not; she freaked out when I had my first girlfriend. I am in high school and am doing well. I love cats and rats; I don't know why I like rats so much. They are really cute.

What being bisexual means to me

To me, being bisexual is being sexually attracted to or "liking" both people of the same and opposite gender. I wasn't influenced to be bi, I was born like this. Though I only realized it a year and a half ago, I am bisexual through and through!

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

Just because I have a girlfriend doesn't mean I'm a lesbian, or just because I have a boyfriend doesn't mean I'm straight. I am bisexual all of the time.
Being bi doesn't mean I want to have a threesome, and no you certainly cannot watch (I have been asked this multiple times).

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I first discovered I was bi when I began having sexual fantasies involving girls. Then I started having a crush on a girl at school. I kept telling myself it wasn't right and that I liked boys. Turns out I liked both. I Googled what this meant and the term bisexual popped up. I tried to change myself, go to church more, and tried desperately to get a boyfriend, but alas, nothing worked. And here I am today!

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

My so called bestfriend doesn't accept me nor would my mother. I just want to be loved and that is the hardest thing for me to get.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

I have the ability to love whoever I want to.

How have other people in your life reacted to your bisexuality?

Grandmother- positive reaction, happy I had gotten my first girlfriend.
Father- "I don't care who you date as long as you are safe."
Aunt- "K."
Mother- negative reaction, "I don't want you making decisions like this until you have faced the real world." I plan to talk with her some more.
Best friend- negative reaction, doesn't really accept me

What advice do you have for someone who thinks they may be bi or who is in the process of coming out as bi?

I would say don't be afraid, but then I would be a hypocrite because I'm terrified. Not everyone is going to accept you, I'm sorry but that is just the way it is. There will always be people who try to tear you down, but you can't let them. Be strong, my wildflower!
