When your parents pull up and you forgot to do your chores
It’s nearly the end of summer omg I’m not ready for this no no no no no
an sentence like this makes me feel uncomfortable
Me: Hmm, it’s 11:30, I’ll just check tumblr before bed
Me: Why is it 3am now
Using the correct pronouns is just as important when the person isnt there to hear it.
mom: so hun i was in your room
and i accidentally started going through your stuff

Bi erasure is an all too pernicious issue and one that’s seldom covered in mainstream media. Even today, people (whether straight or otherwise) still get confused and persist in treating bisexuals as if they’re straight or gay depending on the gender of their partner. This bi erasure in turn contributes to discrimination, with reports of biphobia (and shouts of "breeder", particularly directed at bisexuals of colour) occurring this year at pride festivals worldwide. If bisexuals can’t even feel included at Pride, where are the safe spaces?
This article in the Advocate gives a refreshing, all too rare serious look at how bisexual people can get forgotten in the fight for marriage equality.
