Until recently, I have had a tremendous amount of shame about the bullying I experienced as a child.
Whenever something would happen and my mother would find out, she would yell at me and say, "Why didn’t you fight back?! What are you doing to make them treat you like that?"
So I felt like it was my fault. (x)
There is a genuine dangers of my tears shorting out the computer and turning this entirely into a Laverne Cox fanblog.
The whole INTERNET should be a Laverne Cox fanblog.
Some peeps I drew for work! ~<3

From left to right: genderqueer pride flag, genderfluid pride flag and androgynous pride flag.
And FYI the Top Two:
(1) LGBTQ Rainbow Pride Flag, Bisexual Pride Flag, Asexual Pride Flag
(2) Trans Pride Flag plus note the the T-Shirts, the Butterfly (symbolizing transformation or metamorphosis) is also a Trans Pride Symbol
Q:I have recently come out to everyone I know as gay. I have started a relationship with a woman and I am 95% happier than ever. But I'm still ashamed at being bi. I think that's what I identify as if truth be told. But I believe what bi phobic people say. I am the first person to say all the negative things about bisexual people. I should just choose, it is just greedy, it is impossible to be I love or sexually attracted to both genders. I feel terrible :-(
You shouldn’t feel terrible for being bi or questioning your sexuality, the only thing you should feel bad about is saying bad things about fellow bisexuals. I know the closet is sometimes necessary and fucking sucks but please don’t reinforce your closet by being biphobic, it doesn’t help bisexuals and it ultimately does not help your situation.
Good news: now that you know that you might be bi and know your behaviour is shitty you can now move forward and work on un-fucking your mindset and unlearning biphobia and your own insecurities, it is possible to move past this stage I promise.
You’re suffering from a shit-ton of internalised biphobia, there is no “side” to choose and you’re not greedy for being attracted to more than one gender (there’s more than just two as well), you are wonderful anon you just have to see it for yourself.
Q:I think I'm bisexual. No one knows. And I've never admitted it.
We hope things get better for you. We hope you find a place of physical and mental safety where you can be yourself. Whomever and whatever you decide you are as is best for you.
1.) Thinking about the people you’ve been attracted to, so far in your life, were they all of the same gender?
If you answered "No", to any or all of the questions in our list above then we feel it’s okay for you to call yourself bisexual. We don’t care how attracted you are to the genders around you - you’re bisexual as soon as you stop being exclusively attracted to only one sex.
That’s it. It really is as easy as that.
Remember: in or out; gay, straight, lesbian or bisexual; cisgender, transgender, androgynous, gender non-conforming or nothing In particular; monogamous, celebate, poly; shy, sexualy adventerious, asexual, confused or just not sure yet. No Matter What — You are NOT broken. You are NOT odd or exotic. You are not somehow “wrong”. You are Exactly who and what you are Supposed To Be and most important You Are Not Alone!
Want to support a steampunk book series with a bisexual & intersex protagonist?
So, unfortunately, the publisher of the Micah Grey series by Laura Lam folded, and the full series has not been published yet. The books feature a bisexual intersex protagonist, and really really deserve to be continued. (Plus, it’s steampunk, which is near and dear to my heart as my partner is currently writing a steampunk novel with a bisexual MC.)
Proceeds will go toward the author (likely) self-publishing the third book in the Micah Grey series, so consider purchasing them if you can. :)

The money raised here will be for cab fair for their spouse, Charles Traher to get to and from their home in Curwensville to the hospital instate college.
Having Aud’s spouse partcipate in their recovery is incredibly important. Sadly Curwensville is rural and an hour away from the hospital. So 1 way is 60$ meaning for both ways it is 120$
In order to thank those who donate when they get out Aud will be giving ewards from their etsy shop as seen here:
You can also donate money via paypal at either
Aud, a bi and trans activist I’ve mentioned here before, is a good friend of mine, and a wonderful advocate for the LGBTQ+ (particularly bi and trans) community. Please consider donating and/or signal boosting if you can.
Lots of people are asking for bisexual pride swag they can wear all the time. A nice place to look is Etsy becasue it has unique primarily hand-crafted items, (some are one of a kind so if you see something you just love sometimes it is better to grab it up or it might be gone). Not all the items are marked "Bisexual Pride" sometimes you just have to search on the rose/pink lavender/purple & blue colours of our bisexual pride flag.
