60% of straight women say they would never date a bisexual. 50% of straight men say they would never date a bisexual. 40% of gay men and lesbians say they would never date a bisexual. Bisexuals are obviously just greedy. They’re just bisexual so they can sleep with fewer people and lose opportunities for relationships based solely on their sexual orientation.
What is your source for these statistics?
This is, albeit, quite a bit of extrapolation. A study showed that 61% of straight people have a negative view of bisexual men while 50% have a negative view of bisexual women. 40% of lesbians and gay men have a negative view of bisexuals.
oh, so you pulled these numbers directly out of your ass. the numbers in this reblog and the numbers in your op don’t mean remotely the same thing. we know that even slight variations in the phrasing of survey questions can yield significant differences in response, yet you think you can just extrapolate from the answer to one question to the answer to an entirely different, unasked question, and make a claim about an entirely different population? (hint: there’s a big difference between 61% of straight people and 60% of straight women)
and you don’t even give a source for the supposed actual statistics, but based on googling i’m assuming it’s this (pdf) since it corroborates your numbers on straight people’s views of bi men and bi women, respectively. but as you may note from the title, it’s a study of HETEROSEXUAL UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS and therefore says ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WHATSOEVER ABOUT LESBIANS AND GAY MEN’S VIEWS TOWARD BI PEOPLE. also, it’s from 1997, for fuck’s sake. i’m sure things are exactly the same now as they were 17 years ago, right?
this post is an actual, literal lie and you should be ashamed.

every time i feel anxious i recall zadie smith’s words in white teeth about how no one deserves love all the time, that all we deserve is food, water, and shelter. i do not think she was calling for self-abasement but asking us to make our own way for ourselves, to expect from the world as much as we work to cull from it, and to take losses in stride as an inevitable portion of life’s offerings.
