EDITED TO ADD: Oh my wow, this has gotten hundreds of reblogs in a day. (And part 1 has hit 13,000+ notes in one day.) So I’m editing this to add a direct link to the Predator Alert Tool for OkCupid, a browser tool that visually red-flags the OkCupid.com profiles of people who have answered “yes” to the questions in the studies cited above and some infamous others:

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.
