Yes, exactly.

Why is discussion labeled "hate"?

It's labeled that way by a group of people whose loudest participants appear to have features of Cluster B personalities / disorders. Anything that sounds like "no" means they're a victim. Just like when a toddler has a tantrum under similar circumstances. That analogy is apropos and helpful, because those with these personality issues do tend to have stunted emotional growth.

Looks like the TRA side really are getting desperate

Expect more extinction-burst-like outbursts as more of their dominoes start to fall.

I wondered how that sub was managing to survive there.

Imagine if we had to drug ourselves into being attracted to the same sex. That'd be a tough sell. Who would bother?

How do you feel about people who refuse to date bisexuals? by usehername in Bisexuals

[–]wafflegaff 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Different experiences is plausible if and when it is actually true. But since you haven't defined what we are supposed to consider beyond the strident "who refuse to date" phrasing, you've invited a blunt response. How the question is asked relates to how it is answered. Be specific about the context you want us to consider. "Refuse" implies blatant bias.

Thus my response is that if someone looks at a neutral (and it IS neutral, like it or want to admit it or not) immutable trait and thinks "ew" then they probably have issues.

In addition, don't assume that bisexual people haven't had many or most of the same experiences at some point, if you are talking about L / G-related experiences. Been there, thank you very much, for many years.

The thing is, I wouldn't be pursuing someone who didn't want to date people in a category I can't escape belonging to, so it's all moot to me. But I would certainly be making a note of their biases for future reference, sure, and would choose to likely not trust them in important contexts because their judgment is poor. Because this bias is categorically silly, and no I don't care if you disagree with me about that either. :-) The only criterion you have presented is bisexuality. The only way someone can form a bias solely on that basis is through ignorance. And we can go ahead and call it willful if they settle for stereotypes as well.

Do you think there is another reason that's plausible and not rooted in ignorance? Your question assumes bisexuality is the only disqualifying criterion. If you meant to include others, please clarify.

But either way, I don't date ignorant people and I find no other plausible explanation for this particular hang-up, so I wouldn't find such a person attractive in any case. Sounds like a win-win to me: Neither of us would want the other. ;-) I don't think about dating people who aren't interested in dating me. So I don't really care what their problem is, as I know it isn't with me as a person, if it's about some immutable category I happen to belong to which in and of itself is neutral with respect to having any negative effects on others. That bias says something about them, not me.

I wouldn't want to date them, either. Ignorance isn't sexy.

Expediently random, was not feeling creative about usernames that day. But, you know, a waffle gaff sounds like a great idea. So does a waffle gaffe, for that matter.

Ha, yeah I only made one there again because of this debacle. Thank you for doing what you're doing. And yeah I'm fairly confident that it's just that we need that redirect nuked. Fingers crossed, and then hopefully we'll hear from M7 soon. If what Loki was doing was bad enough I'm not sure which web hosts wouldn't ban us but it'd be nice if they were able to realize we are being attacked and let us fix it before doing that.

I kinda don't think anyone can read this until the redirect is turned off, I see the 17 comments that aren't displaying, but FYI, I messaged u/d3rr a minute ago on Reddit about turning off that redirect. That's what is interfering.

New Super Bisexuals Subreddit by PeakingPeachEater in Bisexuals

This sub might need some mentioning so people remember it's here. Here's an archive of that subreddit:

I agree with the Super- development of course. Since they keep trying to wreck the meaning of our existing terms, which is a way of trying to erase us. Of course we should resist being erased.

Yup, now it's film noir. Teeny, tiny subtle color changes aren't exactly better.

Could be our eyes are just tired from reading the endless, vain nonsense of youthfully-ignorant whippersnappers.

As a super lesbian, I feel more accepted by Republicans, conservatives, and Christians nowadays than I do by my own supposed "community" by [deleted] in SuperStraight

[–]wafflegaff 12 insightful - 1 fun12 insightful - 0 fun13 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Trippy, isn't it. (Hello SuperStraights, bisexual here (the real meaning of the term (same as superbi), not some mangled TRA-concocted version). If you put up some flair for the LGB folks I'm sure we'll gladly use it.)

My political positions—I am also on the left—haven't changed, but they have never included "catering to people with personality disorders who scream and cry about being victims and bully others." The problem is, a lot of people on the left are just a little bit too open / soft-hearted to have their BS detectors set high enough to spot this stuff coming. So of course, we get used as cover to spread this kind of hate. It's atrocious.

Yeah, and that number is tiny and also hard to see. I'm concerned that this isn't just frustrating but also going to reduce interaction on conversations, because now instead of quickly clicking through and getting on with my day, I have to squint and unclick / reclick, multiple times sometimes, to make sure I actually voted.
