Oh wow I didn't know this was a thing

I don't really have any bi icons tbh, cos for me sexuality doesn't play a part in whether I admire someone or not :dontknow:

There are of course the obvious myths like bi people are "greedy" or more likely to be unfaithful which is total rubbish. Also that you're not *actually* bi if you're in any kind of relationship

I feel like currently it's not as accepted as it should be. I also feel like a lot of biphobia comes from within the LGBT community as well - certainly from things I've seen on social media at least. A lot of people also have this idea in their minds that people are either straight or gay so will say things like "I thought they were gay?" when a bi person starts seeing someone of the opposite sex or vice versa. Like they don't seem to know that it's a spectrum kinda thing? So I feel like that needs more awareness

Greedy, more likely to cheat, need to choose a side...

Loads of biphobia comes from inside the LGBT+ community as well as outside it - because they're "not fully gay", so that attitude needs to change.

I’ve always been accepted as bi as well as my friends, it’s no big deal. We must live in a nice place
Imma be my own bicon.
Tbh I don’t think I’ve ever heard any myths either outside of the usual “that’s just greedy” but to that I just laugh and agree, yeah I’m greedy😂
