Hey there, I'm Anjulie and I'm a writer. I write YA fiction (I'm not published yet though). If you like what you see here, follow me (though, not in a stalker-ish way). If not then... I don't know, go make a cake or something. Everyone likes cake.
The idea that bisexual women are only identifying as bisexual as a ploy to receive attention from straight men plays into a much uglier and violent side of the bisexual experience. It ignores the fact that much of the attention that we do receive from straight men is unsolicited and inappropriate. There is an implication within the BiForAttention sentiment that we are constantly desperate or wanting for the attention of men as bisexual women, and therefore we must always be inherently consenting to the attention that we are receiving, even when that attention exists in the form of harassment, invalidation, misogyny, stalking, abuse, or objectification, as it so often does.
