This is very important to sign. Instant search results affirm that we aren’t the only ones searching for a term. The word ‘bisexual’ is blocked, and despite over 40 million results, people think there must not be anything or anyone else out there unless they type in the whole word and press enter.

Imagine being a young bi person searching for support or resources. You may be afraid of the word “bisexual” lingering in your search history, so if you see no instant search results you’re less likely to risk hitting enter. Especially when you see tons of suggestions pop up for gay, lesbian, transgender, and even pansexual.

Google claims that the word “bisexual” is correlated to too much pornography, but that’s utter bullshit. The search “Gay Porn” has over 400 MILLION MORE results than “bisexual porn”, and the word gay is not blocked.

This is bi erasure. Plain and simple. 

This still needs over 500 signatures. C’mon, people! I have over twice as many followers. It’ll just take a second of your time. Sign this very important petition and pass it along! It may not seem like a big deal but it really is. Read more about the repercussions of this block here.

I just did this, and although it took until i got to the e in bisexual, a bunch of things did pop up. And “am i bisexual” was the second result for “am i b,” (the first is bipolar) so I’m not really sure what’s going on.

I’m tired of seeing debate on this.  Prostitutes and sex workers of other kinds sell a service.  If you purchase that service, you are a customer.  If you, without consent, abuse their rights as a human, that is not tantamount to theft.  It’s a human rights abuse.  If you punch a boxer, you aren’t stealing their time as a professional to see their reaction.  You are assaulting them, and the law will recognize this and punish you accordingly.  Rape of prostitutes, however, is a much more serious and common abuse, and it is significantly less punished by law enforcement and societally regarded as a non-issue.  I’m a martial artist.  Compared to the average person, I am much more mentally prepared for the possibility of a physical attack.  It is the milieu I immerse myself in.  That doesn’t mean I want to be attacked, or that it would be ok to attack me, and no one would ever make that logical leap.  Prostitutes, while also more mentally prepared for the very real possibility they may be raped, are no more deserving of rape than I am of being assaulted.  A non-consensual assault against a person, regardless of profession or mental preparation for attack, is clearly still a human rights abuse and the equivalent of assault, not theft. Stop debating this shit.

You. I like you.

gaywrites:

The Louisiana House yesterday voted to uphold an unconstitutional state ban on sodomy — essentially political jargon for gay sex — as part of its “crimes against nature” law. 

In Lawrence v. Texas in 2003, the Supreme Court ruled that sodomy bans are unconstitutional. But a handful of states, including Louisiana, refuse to change their anti-sodomy laws. While the statute technically can’t be used as a basis to arrest people, Louisiana deputies have reportedly made sodomy-related arrests recently, inciting a lawmaker to try to repeal it. 

Against all logic or reason, on Tuesday, the state House voted 66-27 to keep the anti-sodomy law in place. 

In a letter urging Louisiana lawmakers to reject the proposal, the influential Christian lobbying organization wrote, “Louisiana’s anti-sodomy statute is consistent with the values of Louisiana residents who consider this behavior to be dangerous, unhealthy, and immoral.”

In a hearing earlier this month, Bill Smith, a member of the Louisiana Family Forum, told committee members that anti-sodomy laws save the lives of gay people by decreasing their exposure to HIV.

"I have homosexuals in my family. I’m here out of love and concern for the health of these people," Smith said in April. “The fact is this opens up ways for them to really kill themselves.”

I want to scream and cry and throw things.
