vondell-swain:

I don’t get why sexuality is always so cut and dry

like there’s some giant leap between straight/bi, bi/gay, etc

like

in reality it’s just a gradient

like

like for example

if you’re a girl and you generally identify as straight but sometimes find yourself attracted to girls, your plot might look something like

I’d guess around the halfway point is where people start identifying primarily as something or another

like that example person might identify as straight or might identify as bi and both could be acceptably accurate, but someone whose point is a little more to the right would probably generally identify as bi and someone whose point is a little more to the left would probably generally identify as straight

this isn’t necessarily a useful view for like, evaluating potential romantic/sexual partners

but I dunno I think people would generally benefit from considering sexuality more broadly and fluidly than the current cultural norm
