I made a personal commitment to hold men & women to the same standards in relationships

“I made a personal commitment to hold men and women to the same standards in relationships. […] I decided that I would not settle for less from men, while realizing that it means that I might be categorically eliminating most men as potential partners. So be it.”

-Robyn Ochs, ‘Bisexuality, Feminism, Men, and Me’

Recently quoted in Mashable article –

“I’m a bisexual woman and I don’t know how to date men”

Spring 2022: Bi+ Health

Research shows that women who identify as bi+ engage in risk behaviors at a higher rate and have poorer health than do heterosexuals or even lesbians. What’s going on here? What has been your experience? Essays, poems, artwork, and short stories are welcome.

On Attraction and Identity Labels

There are so many different types of attraction, and yet we sometimes try to squeeze all that complexity into these little words like… ‘I’m straight.’ ‘I’m gay.’ ‘I’m bi.’ In fact, true understanding requires a conversation, not just one word.

Straight Could Have Been Your Phase

“I loved the quote you said, that ‘straight could have been your phase’ and I also loved seeing you, simply because you’re older and bisexual and I’ve never seen that (in society).” – Halie, a student in Kentucky

Let’s Work Together

“Rather than debating which single label all of us with multi-gender attraction should use, let’s work together to hold space for ALL nonbinary sexualities.
Bisexual, biromantic, pan, queer, omnisexual, multisexual & more: I celebrate you during Bi Visibility Month & every day.”
