Assholes have got to have someone to look down on, even when they're almost eye level with rock-bottom themselves. Just human nature, unfortunately. You can't escape all the people in society above you, but so long as there's somebody you can put below you, you might just feel better about it.

Who does a marginalized gay person have left to rag on sexually?

Yup.

Can't see the vid, but I do see it's about bisexual stereotypes. I fuckin hate those.

What I hate most is when people try to squeeze me into their definition of bi. Ugh.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

RE: Stomping on the Letter B
I have to confess that I had this kind of stereotypes (and probably still do to some extent) based on bad experiences with bi people. But yeah, some gays do mess up the whole sexuality thing some times, I think it's because many think that just because they had to do some research about their own sexuality are suddenly the lead experts on the field, that leads to some extreme opinions and bashing on bisexuals...

Another problem is that bisexuals can jump into one role or the other and blend in depending on the circumstances, that dissipates the urgency to educate the general population and leads to ignorance. Not that they should or that is good that they do, it's just that they can... I think...

I think most sexual stereotypes are bad

And what most of what you have discribed is bisexual erasure

Fuck, I knew it didn't sound good... But I don't say that bis don't exist!

Is it possible that (some) bisexuals use this "blending ability" to avoid judgement?

I closet myself depending on the circumstances, I think that this might be easier for bisexuals, so that may lead to less visibility

Meh, I have never experienced an issue with bisexuals. My closest friend is a bisexual, and she hasn't ever been criticized or teased by her gay friends.

RE: Stomping on the Letter B
Although I can't deny these stereotypes exist, I don't think they only stem from gays/lesbians. Being gay myself, I've only been in relationships with bisexual men (coinicidence, I'm not especially looking for them ;P) and I currently am. When I tell non-gay friends that my boyfriend is gay, sometimes they ask me if I'm afraid he'll fall for a woman. I didn't get those question from gay/lesbian friends yet.
Needless to say my experience didn't affirm any of the stereotypes.

I'm sorry if you had any bad experiences like that, but I don't think most gays/lesbians mean any harm by stereotyping bisexuals, they simply don't understand. But I agree, we especially should put in some effort in understanding others.
