Jess C. Scott
“Last night I was seriously considering whether I was a bisexual or not but I don’t think so though I’m not sure if I’d like to be and argh I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, if you like a person, you like the person, not their genitals.”
Jess C Scott, Tongue-Tied

Margaret Cho
“I was like, Am I gay? Am I straight? And I realized...I'm just slutty. Where's my parade?”
Margaret Cho

Jess C. Scott
“I suppose it’s not a social norm, and not a manly thing to do — to feel, discuss feelings. So that’s what I’m giving the finger to. Social norms and stuff…what good are social norms, really? I think all they do is project a limited and harmful image of people. It thus impedes a broader social acceptance of what someone, or a group of people, might actually be like.”
Jess C Scott, New Order

“I think choosing between men and women is like choosing between cake and ice cream. You'd be daft not to try both when there are so many different flavors.”

Leah Raeder
“If I was gay, I wouldn't need an asterisk beside my name. I could stop worrying if the girl I like will bounce when she finds out I also like dick. I could have a coming-out party without people thinking I just want attention. I wouldn't have to explain that I fall in love with minds, not genders or body parts. People wouldn't say I'm 'just a slut' or 'faking it' or 'undecided' or 'confused.' I'm not confused. I don't categorize people by who I'm allowed to like and who I'm allowed to love. Love doesn't fit into boxes like that. It's blurry, slippery, quantum. It's only limited by our perceptions and before we slap a label on it and cram it into some category, everything is possible.”
Leah Raeder, Black Iris

Alan Cumming
“You know what I hate most of all in the whole wide world?...More than people who think that if you're bisexual it means you'll fuck absolutely anyone (especially them)?”
Alan Cumming, Tommy's Tale

Dan Pearce
“The world is so obsessed with defining sexuality for everyone and attaching labels to it. Any time any person openly leaves the sexual norm, their sexuality becomes, more often than not, the absolute defining characteristic of that person. It becomes the first thing people think about and often the first thing they mention. Every other part of that person all but disappears.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

James Baldwin
“Giovanni had awakened an itch, had released a gnaw in me. I realized it one afternoon, when I was taking him to work via the Boulevard Montparnasse. We had bought a kilo of cherries and we were eating them as we walked along. We were both insufferably childish and high-spirited that afternoon and the spectacle we presented, two grown men jostling each other on the wide sidewalk and aiming the cherry pits, as though they were spitballs, into each other's faces, must have been outrageous. And I realized that such childishness was fantastic at my age and the happiness out of which it sprang yet more so; for that moment I really loved Giovanni, who had never seemed more beautiful than he was that afternoon.”
James Baldwin, Giovanni's Room

Krista Ritchie
“Whether it's men, women—it doesn't really matter. The human race is filled with passion and lust. And to coin terms like heterosexuality, homosexuality or even bisexuality makes no sense to me. You are human. You love who you love. You fuck who you fuck. That should be enough—no labels. No stigmas. Nothing. Just be to be.
But life isn't that kind. People will always find things to hate.”
Krista Ritchie, Kiss the Sky

Taylor Jenkins Reid
“She liked to ignore the fact that I had made love to men and enjoyed it. She liked to ignore it until the very moment she decided to be threatened by it. That seemed to be her pattern. I was a lesbian when she loved me and a straight woman when she hated me.”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

“All you need to validly be bi is to identify! It's so true it rhymes.”
Ashley Mardell

Dan Pearce
“If only I could change the world around me, perhaps my truth won’t one day be the end of me.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

Dan Pearce
“At the border of where I will literally not survive so long as I keep living in so much fear of the harsh judgments of others, I am finally conceding the truth to you all.

I am finally conceding the truth to me.

I am something other than straight.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

Thomm Quackenbush
“His kisses were so hungry and male, which isn't bad. Every kiss said he could never have enough, but he wasn't going to stop trying. They were so hormonal. I wanted his sugar roughness. Girl's kisses are deliberate and polished. When she kisses me - when I kiss her - she doesn't want me. She has me and knows it.”
Thomm Quackenbush, We Shadows

“I don’t check any particular box. I’ve never caught feelings for anyone because they were a male or a female. I feel for people because of who they are. Not what they are.”
Tammy Ferebee, Outsiders

“I think I've always been bisexual. I mean, it's something that I've always been interested in. I think people are born bisexual, and it's just that our parents and society kind of veer us off into this feeling of 'Oh, I can't.' They say it's taboo. It's ingrained in our heads that it's bad, when it's not bad at all. It's a very beautiful thing.”
Billie Joe Armstrong

Jennifer Baumgardner
“Freud's most radical legacy is the one that is the least actualized. After years of evolution on the topic, he came to the conclusion that any exclusive monosexual interest - regardless of whether it was hetero- or homosexual - was neurotic. In a sense Freud is saying what second-wave critic Kate Millet said a half-century late: "Homosexuality was invented by a straight world dealing with its own bisexuality." By the end of his writings, in 1937, Freud was downright blythe about bisexuality: "Every human being['s] . . . libido is distributed, either in a manifest or a latent fashion, over objects of both sexes.”
Jennifer Baumgardner, Look Both Ways: Bisexual Politics

Adam Thirlwell
“I don't think I could ever live with either a man or a woman for a long time. Male and female are attractive to my mind, but when it comes to the sexual act I am afraid. In every situation I need a lot of stimulation before I am conquered by the forces of passion and lust. But confusion, before and after, is the dominant factor.

I dreamed many times about a mature man with experience who would have the vigour of a boy but an adult's polished methods. Strangely enough, I also dreamed about women of my mother's age who were ideal lovers. These dreams came superimposed on one another. Sometimes the masculine element was dominant, sometimes the feminine one. At other times I wasn't sure. I saw a female body with male organs or a male body with female ones. These pictures, blended together in my mind, occasionally brought pleasure but more often pain.”
Adam Thirlwell, Politics

Ben Monopoli
“I was bi and my heart was off-limits to no one, at least not for any reason like what they had between their legs or whether their chests were flat or round. And maybe because of that I never really could believe or understand that Griff, or anyone else, could be deterred from falling in love by such a trivial thing as gender.”
Ben Monopoli, The Cranberry Hush

Shiri Eisner
“Bisexuality has the potential to subvert the structure of the gender binary, since bisexuality is perceived as a type of desire that doesn't distinguish between people based on their genders.”
Shiri Eisner, Bi: Notes for a Bisexual Revolution

Shiri Eisner
“When it comes to monosexual identities, gender-based discrimination not only is encouraged but also constitutes the basis on which monosexual identities are created and withheld. In this way bisexuality exposes inconsistencies within the system”
Shiri Eisner, Bi: Notes for a Bisexual Revolution

Lily  Seabrooke
“Take some time to get over her, to get back to town, and maybe then you can think about girls. Or boys.''
I wrinkled my nose. ''Think I’ll pass on the boys.''
He arched an eyebrow. ''What happened to being bisexual?''
''I am attracted to men,'' I said. ''And I choose to do nothing about that attraction.”
Lily Seabrooke, The Simple Answer

Alexis  Hall
“I'm not indecisive, Mother, I'm bisexual. There's a difference.”
Alexis Hall, Rosaline Palmer Takes the Cake

“Those who would criminalize same-sex sexual activities don't care how often or exclusively you do it. Bisexual folks suffer from these laws just as surely as lesbian or gay man who never, ever, has an opposite-sex partner. Queer bashers don't care that sometimes by folks sleep with opposite-sex partners. In their eyes there is no such thing as half-queer”
Orna Izakson

Shiri Eisner
“Reducing bisexual experience around oppression to the visual aspect only, necessarily means erasing all those other aspects of bisexual oppression that aren't perceived as visible or intuitive.”
Shiri Eisner, Bi: Notes for a Bisexual Revolution

Shiri Eisner
“Bisexual passing also exposes the often-invisible structure of monosexism, since by crossing the monosexist line [by passing] we show that it exists. Our passing also threatens people's own "pure" identities, because despite the fact that we may look or act like them, we are not in fact like them. This means that we represent their anxiety of being "polluted,”

Kate Harrad
“People asking about the sex/number of threesomes/kink I have, as soon as I mention I'm bi.

“It was the perfect meet-cute, except when you're a girl who likes other girls, there's this little additional dance, because what if she doesn't? So you're not looking for red flags like a girl does with a guy---you're looking for rainbow ones.”
Tess Sharpe, The Girls I've Been
