Dear Lesbians and Gays — I’m Bisexual and You Treated Me Like Crap: I’m done with you by BETH SHEROUSE

My dearest gays and lesbians —

I’ve loved you since before I even knew you. From a young age, I was drawn to your transgressive sexuality and gender expression, your courage to be yourselves in the face of oppression, your fabulous rainbows and your sensible shoes.

I’ve marched in your parades, joined and organized protests for your rights, volunteered with your local groups and worked for your most prominent national organization.

I’ve loved you fiercely and advocated for you tirelessly. But I’ve finally accepted the fact that you will never love me back because I’m a bisexual woman, and you have shown me time and again that you are not here for me or my community, despite the numerous disparities we face in comparison to you and the non-LGBTQ community.

I want to make a point on the “lesbians sleeping with men” trope

There is an over abundance of stories about lesbians falling in love with or sleeping with men.

There are a ton of shitty examples (Chasing Amy, Kissing Jessica Stein, The Kids are Alright) in mainstream media.  For some reason filmmakers in particular love to tell this story (though literary adult fiction does it a lot too).  It always ends with the lesbian either staying a lesbian, turning straight, or adopting some vague no labels bs so she can be with the dude.

I know no lesbians who like these stories.  They are sick to death of seeing them.

A new chapter of Lacunae

Major Aula Reed is a Canadian fighter pilot, veteran astronaut, closeted bisexual, and survivor of the worst accident in space exploration since Space Shuttle Columbia. The first permanent outpost on the Moon should’ve been cause for celebration, but its destruction gutted a generation of moonwalkers.

By the spring of 2046, the accident approaches its tenth anniversary. Aula is stationed on a new lunar base where her second mission is constantly overshadowed by her first. To live separate from Earth means facing radiation, meteorites, and equipment failure while under constant public scrutiny. Despite the demands of her job, Aula struggles to find meaning in what happened. Even if it challenges the lies she told herself, the people she loves, and the rest of the world.

This is a story of the near future informed by the lives of today’s astronauts, whose triumphs and tragedies are immortalized in the public eye.

How Queerness Erased Bisexuality by Dawne Moon

Something didn’t quite make me feel at home in the queer theory crowd. Even brilliant queer theorists — who I knew didn’t see gender as the most important determinant of whether someone was attractive, hook-up-worthy, or relationship material—seemed to downplay their bisexuality. Queer theorists spoke of disrupting binaries such as male/female and hetero/homo, but the fact that bisexuals’ lived experience of gender disrupts both of those binaries never seemed to even enter the conversation.
