Still with labels?


Labels are, I think, as inevitable as they are fundamentally offensive and stupid. Why do we feel the urge to define ourselves or other people within the confines of definitions that actually set boundaries? Nice designs but I look forward to the day when no one will feel the need for them and we can just be ourselves, whoever that may be.

Feel free to throw stones, but really . . .

Bi Visibility Day


I didn't even know today is Bi Visibility Day . . .

Actor Fran├žois Arnaud

“I’m sure many bisexual guys feel the same and end up doing as I did: letting other people’s assumptions of straightness stand uncorrected. Perhaps out of fear of oversharing. Under the guise of privacy, maybe,” Arnaud continued. “Probably because ‘masculinity’ is a most fragile currency, ready to nose-dive at the first sign of vulnerability or difference. And because it’s really f**king scary to give up your privilege. Without a doubt because stigmas of indecisiveness, infidelity, deception and trendiness are still clinging to bisexuality.

“But here’s the thing. Silence has the perverse effect of perpetuating those stereotypes, making bi guys invisible, and leading people to doubt that we even exist. No wonder it’s still a chore to acknowledge bisexuality without getting into lengthy explanations.”

Axel Auriant & Maxence Danet-Fauvel

These are the boys from SKAM-France. In addition to being lovers on the screen, they are affectionate in real life. Both identify as "straight" but that label doesn't prevent them from expressing their feelings for each other.
