Answer
  • Question: As I see it, erhhk's comment is the logically fallacious one actually. Your original post points out how there is nothing ~inherent~ to the universe as it came to exist/culminated in the reader of the post's existence that ~necessitates~ picking on teen girls. Their comment appears to equate it to an existentialist straw man: "big universe = no meaning in what we do at all." - Anonymous

Answer
  • Question: I just read a fanfic where when some of a bisexual character's friends found out said character was bi, instead of being supportive the characters just stood around questioning his identity and saying he was confused because he's had significantly less experience with men than with women and the characters then proceeded to refer to him as straight, but bi-curious regardless of what the character in question said. And the whole thing was framed in a way that made his friends seem right. I'm mad. - Anonymous

back when i thought i was straight i was so uncomfortable with the word gay it’s hilarious. and now i’m just like… i’m gay. this clothing is gay. that book is gay. these inanimate objects that are sort of brushing against each other are gay.

bi-privilege:

the universe did not converge in the series of improbable events that ended in your existence on this flying rock in the middle of space so that you could discredit the identity of teenage bisexual girls

this statement is a double-edged sword; logically shows why you shouldn’t discredit them, but also expresses why it doesn’t really matter in the huge perspective of the universe that it makes an example of. 

i guess it also won’t really matter if i take this comment to the trash where it belongs

Answer
  • Question: Can we claim Smithers as bisexual because he has a flashback to his marriage with a woman and his obvious romantic and sexual attraction to mr burns? The previous marriage wasn't totally free from sex or love because the woman states " make love to me like you used to" this to me means that we can claim Smithers. - Anonymous

  • Sexism - and the word “men” - groups together white men with men of color, cis men with trans men, abled men with disabled men, etc. It means that a a queer trans man of color can oppress a white cishet woman.
  • Heterosexism - and the word “heterosexual” - groups together cis men, cis women and trans/nonbinary people, white people and poc, abled and disabled people, etc. It means that heterosexual disabled working class women of color can oppress abled white middle class gay cis men.
  • Cissexism - and the word “cisgender” - groups together cis women with cis men, white people and poc, abled and disabled people, etc. It means a cisgender lesbian woman of color can oppress a white trans man. (You know? I bet this is an argument that radscums actually use.)
  • Ableism - Okay you get the point
  • Classism - Or so I hope
  • Ageism - Because this is ridiculous
  • Etc.

Why is this ridiculous?

  • Because this is not how intersectionality works
  • Each term represents one axis of oppression
  • No one term can take all axes into account
  • Nor should it, otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to talk about the oppression of any specific group
  • No one axis of oppression trumps all others
  • To say that monosexism inherently and necessarily trumps all other axes is to derail the discussion
  • Is a black lesbian trans woman privileged over a white bisexual cis man? Of course not.
  • But that is not the question
  • The question is: is a black lesbian trans woman privileged over a black bisexual trans woman?
  • Take a look at some of our statistics, and then think about that.
  • Then take a look at how I, the person who wrote the monosexual privilege checklist, wrote, time after time, about how the list is meant to draw attention to straight people and away from gay and lesbian people.
  • Then take a look at my book, which includes the list, and is about intersectional bisexual politics, with chapters about how monosexism works at intersections between bisexuality and women (including trans women), men (including trans men), trans and nonbinary people, and people of color.
  • And was written by a bisexual genderqueer disabled person/woman of color.
  • FFS
  • Then after you acknowledge all that, maybe we can start having a discussion.

[Note: I trust tumblr will ignore this post much like any other that I make about monosexism and monosexual privilege because I guess I’m making too much sense? But - just in case it gets around, know that I may not be following up, as per low spoons. Hate to my ask box will be deleted.]
