Hi, I‘m Louisa. My sexuality is Fluid.

What being bisexual means to me

I use it as a more common label .. in my case, I could be sttracted to and/or have relationships w/individuals of more than than one gender . .gender is really not the issue here, so it is a bit of a misnomer, because bisexuality both implies (only) two distinct genders, and that that is the issue involved (yeah: I'm one of those!!)

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

I would like the world to know that it simply means that attraction and love are not restricted by gender, and that we are not all "promiscuous," confused, or "going through a phase" (or, even of some bisexually-identified people are, that's okay!!!)

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I think that I had confused feelings towards individuals of more than one gender from an early age, and even when I first heard about bisexuality (at the age of twelve), I thought that I'd wait until I was older to figure this out, wrote diary entries about it at fifteen, first kissed boys then, and, totally assured about it, first kissed a girl at the age of twenty .. it felt real, and I was still sure .. I've gone through phases of mostly thinking about females, as well as thinking more about men, but (in general) choose a fuid identity .. I could still be sttracted to people of more than one gender, and for(a more complicated) arguments' sake, I'm not restricitng genders to two (splitting hairs or ne, here!!!)

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

people not understanding or not believing, or making assumptions ..

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

It is what it is; it's not a choice, but I'd like to think some understanding comes with it

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

some people intuit it; others try to make assumptions that I'm really more into women or men .. it's best when they accept it; it's great when they're bisexual also, so we can bond about it
