In regards to sexuality, behavior refers to how a person interacts with others romantically or sexually. Along with attraction and identity, behavior is one of the 3 main components of sexual orientation.
Bi is a shortened form of bisexual and is often used as an identity label.
- Bi Erasure
Bi erasure is a tendency to ignore, remove, falsify, or reexplain evidence of bisexuality. Examples of bi erasure could include someone talking about "gay marriage"; the active denial of the existence of bisexuality; or a history book ignoring a figure's bisexuality.
- Bi Umbrella
The bi umbrella refers to the fact that bisexual is a broad term for a sexual orientation. There are many identity labels that people may chose to use that fit under that umbrella.
- Bi Visibility
Bi visibility is about seeing and creating bi representation. Examples of bi visibility would be a person choosing to come out, wearing a bi shirt, having bi characters in media, or simply having bisexuality be a bigger part of the LGBT conversation.
A binary is a system that only has two parts; it is an either/or proposition. There is a common misbelief that bisexuality reinforces the gender binary.
Biphobia is a dislike or prejudice against bi people and bisexuality.
Bisexuality is a sexual orientation that describes people who have both homosexual and heterosexual attraction patterns. Colloquially, this means attraction that is not limited by sex or gender.
