I’m sick of how bisexuality is erased in LGBT spaces. I get really nervous before any LGBT event, especially Pride. I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – having been on the receiving end of hate themselves – then how will anyone else understand?
The Kinsey scale, also called the Heterosexual-Homosexual Rating Scale, attempts to describe a person's sexual experience or response at a given time. It uses a scale from 0, meaning exclusively Heterosexual, to 6, meaning exclusively Homosexual. In both the Male and Female volumes of the Kinsey Reports, an additional grade, listed as "X", was used for Asexuality. Sexual orientation is not an either or thing.
