I'm not a lesbian I just help out when t

new article on the "where do bisexuals fit in the greater LGBT universe" discussion

The fencesitters? Suspicions still haunt the bi/homo divide
by Cheryl Dobinson, creator of "The Fence" (a bi women's zine)

Great quote from article (IMHO): She (Sharon Larade, lesbian) thinks that part of the reason for negativity and skepticism about bisexuality is people's internalized homophobia.

"It's like when straight people encounter gay people and then get insecure and have to show they aren't gay by being homophobic," says Larade. "There is an exclusionary hierarchy, where gay and lesbian is 'more pure.'

"We all have a responsibility to educate and inform ourselves and each other and to push each other a bit around this," says Larade.

She doesn't think that bisexuals should be the ones who have to make it happen. Cultivating an openness and acceptance across the gay/bi divide is all our of work.
