Me: Hey, cool, this historical figure seems to have swung both ways
Homophobic Historian: THEY WERE STRAIGHT OMFG STOP READING THINGS INTO IT
Gay Historian: SO WHAT IF THEY WERE MARRIED SIX TIMES THEY WERE GAY GAY GAY
Me: But bisexuality exists and isn't that the most sensible thing to assume if we have actual evidence of them having had both male and female lovers?
Homophobic historian: THEY WERE CONFUSED AND IT WAS JUST A PHASE
Gay Historian: LA LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY
Me: But Anaïs just wrote about how she wanted to faceplant in this woman's boobs, and Byron jumped from this chick's bed into this boy's pants and then this Mercury guy even self-identified as bisexual--

“I wouldn’t necessarily mind people not knowing I’m gay, but I don’t like being thought of as straight — in the same way that I don’t mind people not knowing I’m a writer, but it would be awkward if they assumed I was an extreme skateboarder, because that’s so far removed from the reality of my life. But there is no blank slate where orientation is concerned; we are straight until proven otherwise. And if you’ve never seen how dramatically a conversation can be derailed by a casual admission of homosexuality, let me tell you, it gets awkward.”

If u are ever stranded in the woods or the tundra or the ocean or the cold recess of space alone and u need help

just whisper “Bisexuality is the attraction to same and different genders” and a monosexual will descend from the sky out of nowhere screaming “Actually!!!" and waving a flag that says "Bi = 2"

and u can borrow their cell phone while they invalidate ur existence

nitatyndall:

As I spoke about in my post, when I was a young babygay, many of the LGBT YA novels I found were all about the angst and trials of coming out. Which is all well and good, but those can’t be the only narratives queer people see themselves in. So, I compiled this list.

I had three criteria:

Coming Out could be a part of the plot but could not be the whole focus (which is why Ask the Passengers, even though it’s good, isn’t on here, before you ask)

The protagonist/MC had to identify as queer/LGBT. No sidekick stories here.

The story could not be known to be biphobic or transphobic (which is why The Bermudez Triangle isn’t on here, also before you ask. Also bisexual-books has a great response to that book in particular, but this is not the place for that discussion.)

If you believe a novel on this list falls into the categories of bi- or transphobic or otherwise, please message me and I’ll look into it/remove it.

This is by no means a comprehensive list—feel free to reblog and add suggestions or message me with suggestions so I can keep updating!

The List is also on Goodreads!!
