The best of the #biactivistsaresickofhearing hashtag

You’ve got to love twitter. We use it for networking, maintaining friendships, sharing news and jokes and judging other people’s grammar.  And, of course, we use it for blowing off steam, like today, when a cotterie of frazzled bi activists decided to tweet the most ridiculous, illogical and, unfortunately, ubiquitous things they hear every day.

We kicked off with a few of our own experiences…

… and boy did we hit a nerve. Here are 15 of the best responses.

1. The one where non-binary bi people are completely erased

 

 

2. The one that’s a little on the nose

 

 

3. The one where we’re a danger to children and Christians

 

 

4. The one that’s sort of a circular problem

 

5. The one that’s basically put up or shut up

 

 

 

6. The one where if it didn’t happen in front of you it didn’t happen

 

 

7. The one where representation is always someone else’s problem

 

 

8. The one that doesn’t even deserve refuting

 

9. The one where we are all exactly the same

 

 

10. The one that’s just *eyeroll*

 

 

11. The one were nomenclature matters

 

 

12. The one that prioritises ‘cute’

 

 

13. The one that’s patronising AF

 

14. The one where they’re a bit confused about our job

 

 

 

15. The one where goodwill don’t pay the rent

Libby is a 30-something Londoner, who spends more time reading picture books than is seemly. She became a bi activist entirely by accident, but now she can't imagine living any other way. In the event of an emergency, she'll have a large gin and tonic, thanks.
